Hmmm....who's just cartoonish enough, someone who's been in the spotlight, on the villain side of things.  Someone who a bad drama writer would write in as Trump's VP.  Christie?  No, and I can't believe I'm saying this, he's too smart.  He can't be in it with Drumpf, he's too smart to do it, and not zealotous enough to ignore it.  Gingrich?  No way, he hates Trump, and he's TOO set zealotous to fall for it.  It needs...it needs to be someone in the middle.  Not smart enough to see through things, or too zealotous to not be blinded by it, but not too dumb or too zealotous.  They need to be known, across the nation, as a villain, someone who caters to Trump's demographics, and someone diametrically opposed to the (D) nominee.  Someone who represents a contest between good and evil, change/progress with backpedaling on social issues and not capable of running an economy......











Wait, Trump met with Mike Pence?  Pence?

PENCE?????

He's perfect!  It's exactly what they would write for him to do! He's just enough of a fake martyr, he fits right in with Trump's rhetoric!  He's been a patsy, a second fiddle his entire tenure as governor!  He's been all about what Trump's been peddling the entire time, and anyone not an (R) hates him!  He's nationally known as the guy who hates fun, and puts his religion and friends above anyone else, including and especially his constituents!  He's the other heel in the tag team deathmatch championship bout!"

Niiiice ?
Yeah he would help Trumpf "heal" the convention, and
provide solid (if spectacularly ideological) Governance help.
Also fits Trumps m.o. of  :fu to the congress Repubs.


Pennsylvania just polled 40 / 40 , with unusually large undecideds.
That's a lot of room for the Libertarian ticket to do something (anything).

I voted Green last time.  Because they're actually Liberals, unlike the Democrats.  This time I'm going full Libertarian.  Because if the parties are going to do nothing but political bull-shenanigans, the voters might as well too.  So might as well sabotage the Republicans by getting the Libertarians some bennies.

Besides, thanks to the Electoral College, its not like my vote for President actually matters otherwise.

Do not give in to the counter-revolutionaries, comrade! We must show solidarity!

I wonder if Hillary would go for debating Johnson (the Libertarian) and
without The Donald around.  Specifically go to battleground states.

Hillary is nobody’s idea of perfect. Fine. But in my view if a man with her qualifications were running in the Democratic primary, Bernie would have been done before he even started. And if a man with her qualifications had been running for the Republicans, they’d be anointing him the next Reagan while trying to sneak his face onto Mount Rushmore.
I didn't realize that I was going to vote for Jill Stein because I'm too sexist to support America's first female president!

I like how most defenses of Clinton include "Trump did it too!" like that's a good thing.  It used to be "*insert Right Wing politician here* did it too!", but lately it's been more Trump.

Well, Trump's done everything at this point, which is why he wants to be President.

The police will get on that right after they finish arresting all those black protesters for lynching.

I....I....I was right....I was right!  Pence is gearing up to be the VP pick!  I....holy carp.  That is good AND bad news at the same time.  Pence as the VP pick lends more credence to 'Trump doesn't want it', but also means he can't run for governor again!  Which means...it...means....John Gregg is the next governor of Indiana?  Holy carp?
