Anyone But Mitt Romney, Please

By selecting Joe Biden, Barack Obama has placed a lock on Delaware's 3 electoral votes. Of course, those 3 electoral votes were in his column already for all the good they will do him.

John McCain shouldn't make the same mistake.

He has absolutely nothing to gain by selecting Mitt Romney as his running mate.

Romney is not going to help him carry Massachussetts, his home state. God Himself couldn't help McCain to carry Massachussetts.

Romney's not going to help him carry Michigan, his father's home state, either. If Mitt thought that he had a chance of making a political career for himself in Michigan, he would have.

As for Utah, enclave of Romney's coreligionists, it's going to go for McCain, Romney or no Romney. On the other hand, selecting Romney would antagonize the Christian right which does not consider Mormonism to be a mainstream Christian religion.

The only thing McCain gets by picking Romney is a spate of tv commercials with mutually deprecating comments from their primary debates which will neutralize Biden's own putdowns of Obama.

RCAB has not concealed its profound distaste for Romney and shall be greatly disappointed if McCain picks Mr. "Patria o Muerte" as his running mate. If he does, however, we will have nothing more to say on the subject because a McCain-Romney ticket is immeasurably preferable to an Obama-Biden one.

So here, before the die is cast and hoping that it won't be, Mitt Romney's unique American story:

Mitt Romney: Gone Like His Father and Hopefully Never to Return
Mitt Romney's Ten Biggest Gaffes
Guess Which Presidential Candidate Was a Mexican Anchor Baby?
The Continuing Saga of Mitt Romney, Mexican Anchor Baby
Mitt Romney: The Buck Stops With the Landscaper


The Republican National Committee has launched a "Biden Gaffe Clock" on its website to keep track of his slip-ups on the campaign trail. The first gaffe ocurred on Saturday, August 23 at 3:31 PM EST when Biden referred to his running mate as "Barack America." Mitt Romney is also subject to foot-and-mouth disease (see link above to his "Ten Biggest Gaffes") and were he tapped to be McCain's running mate the Democratic National Committee would surely return the favor.

All we can do is hope McCain does not pick him, it would be a mistake.

McCain fellated gooks as a POW for food.

Mitt at the same time was eating coq a vin in France.

Mansuelo, if you had to make a choice, under threat of an immediate flogging, would you fellate a gook or become a mormon?

Who is Mansuelo?

Yes, Batista was guilty of showing too much compassion to Castro.

Writers are sometimes afflicted with something called "writer's block," a psychological inhibition which prevents them from doing their work. In another time it was known as lack of inspiration.

An idiot's block, therefore, is a disorder which prevents idiots from carrying out the simple tasks which we associate with their condition.

Lmao, Barak America, he wishes

Vana said...

I think an idiots block is a good afliction for rubber head.

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...


I believe you are right. Now that Obama has rejected Hillary, it would be a wise move for McCain to pick a woman as a running mate. Hillary's disappointed supporters would then have an even greater reason to vote for McCain than just showing their disaffection with Obama: they would be making history by electing the first female vice president. I would hope, however, that McCain would be able to find a running mate from a state which is not already in his pocket and which carries a little more electoral punch than does Alaska.

Cari said...

Ever since Obama became the presumptive nominee I have thought that McCain should pick a woman. Now with the Biden pick, I'm convinced that it would be the smartest move. I (and probably most voters) don't know anything about Palin, but I think that it plays in her favor. I agree that it would be better if she were from a bigger state though.

Ms Calabaza said...


good point but what about Carly Fiorina? Palin may be too inexperienced and not able to debate bulldog Biden. I also heard some rumblings about some minor scandal in Alaska politics involving her campaign. McCain needs to have these candidates vetted very well.

I still remember in 1984 when Dukakis picked Heralding F. has his running mate President Ronald Reagan said that he believe that will be the Republican Party the first to have a woman president of vice-president. Well as he used to say: There we go again!


Anonymous said...

My bad, It was Mondel and not Dukakis. I don't even remember who was Dukakis running mate.


Ms Calabaza said...


it was Lloyd Bentsen. Remember, the debate with poor Dan Quayle? "Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine; you're no Jack Kennedy..." Ouch!

The police has just picked up Gorki, in Havana.
In a few more minutes I will be posting more about this, please contact all your friends and acquaintances and let them know that Gorki is in danger.

"bueno, ahora acaba de llamarme Ciro que lo montaron en una patrulla y se lo están llevando para la unidad parece, él le está cayendo atrás a la patrulla en la bicicleta, me llamará de nuevo, eso es todo lo que sé por ahora
a eso de las 10 yo hablé con Gorki, que ya Ciro había salido para allá y pensaban grabar las voces de sólo un tema, porque Gorki no se sentía muy bien, tiene reforzamiento en los pulmones y falta de aire, cuando iban a empezar a grabar llegó la policía con el delegado"

Charlie Bravo said...

El testimonio de Ciro:

Cuando nos disponiamos a empezar a grabar tocan la puerta. Gorki abre y desde el cuarto escucho, "¿Usted es el Ciudadano Gorki Aguila?" era un policia que le pidió lo acompañara, el preguntó y el le dijo que solo cumplia ordenes.

El policia se dirigió a él siempre en buena forma. Yo los seguí al sector de policia y esperé en la esquina para por si les daba por cargar conmigo también y no quedara quién avisara.

Cuando se fueron me acerque al sector de policia y estaba allí el mismo que lo vino a buscar, le pregunté que para donde lo habían llevado y el me dijo que para la estacion de 3ra y 62 llamada popularmente la 5ta.

De regreso me encontré con el padre de Gorki que al enterarse se puso muy nervioso y fué a la 5ta a averiguar por su hijo.

Joe, the Senator
My mom's boyfriend is from Delaware. On Satuday night I chatted with him on the phone and we were talking about Obama's pick of Biden for V.P. and how Biden is a loose cannon. He told me that Biden likes to attend 4 masses each Sunday (catching a little bit of each) so that he can be seen by many.

Then he told me a funny anecdote about the time he Biden. It turns out that they didn't live too far from each other. One day Biden was walking down the street. He comes up to my mom's boyfriend and says, "Hello. I'm Joe, the Senator," and offers his hand.

My mom's boyfriend accepted the handshake and said dryly, "And I'm Gus, the Doctor."

Those who are not invited to read the Black Sheep of Exile will be able to read more about Gorki on his website later on tonight.
As an update, Charlie Bravo just left a comment on Yoani's blog, he left another one at Penultimos Dias, some updates in the Black Sheep of Exile, and here....

Gorki ha sido detenido por peligrosidad, y bajo esa farsa le haran un juicio el jueves, le quieren dar de uno a cuatro años y esta en la estacion de 3ra y 62 en Miramar, la tristemente celebre 5ta Unidad de la PNR.
El delegado del poder popular esta detras de eso, y como sabemos, es el castigo por tener los timbales de denunciar a la dictadura.
Esto merece una denuncia con todas las de la ley.

Black Sheep and Kill castro used to be very popular web sites , why are they closed now, why invitation only, what does it mean. How in the world will people know about Gorki's plight if those two sites are not open to THE PUBLIC

This is sad news about Gorki, we knew it would be coming sooner or later, all we can do for now is pray.

Fulano de Cal said...

The Palin option is exciting but maybe but I sure know nothing about her.

I suspect Romney got only a minority of cubanamerican-republican vote. He seems to have a coating the repulses me.

So what about Fidel's defense of that grosero taekwondo athlete? How low and embarrassing. Chusma.

Pray for Gorki.
