Ogged, I continue to admire your ability to disturb. But how can you ever really know which way the dressing crossed? If I had the mug on her, I'd switch to him in seconds flat.

How about a comparison to Phyllis Diller?

I find the eyebrows the most disturbing element of that get-up.

I take it back. I want to see the republicans nominate Giuliani, just to see Dobson's head melt.

I'd actually vote for him if he agreed to spend all four years in that dress, or a similar one. While holding a ferret. In his shorts.

I'm holding out for President Obama to appoint Rudy warden of the Fort Leavenworth Maximum Security Ferret-Legging Work Camp, where much of the current Administration will be serving life sentences for war crimes. Perks of the position will include a magical rainbow pony.

It will take more than makeup and a wig to conceal the charcoal effigy of Moloch that is Rudolph Giuliani's heart-equivalent.

You know, it just might work for him.

To make the blonde wig work you need, like, 30 goddam dicks.

I found the greatest love of all inside of me...

Romney is his own biggest campaign donor.

It seems crazy that the GOP would nominate Giuliani, given all his pro-choice, pro-gay rights, pro-gun control baggage. Does the Republican base really want a 9/11 President that badly?

The interesting thing about the Republican candidates is that there's some reason why each of them couldn't possibly be the nominee. And yet....

That isn't always true of the GOP slate, though? Seems like they always have some crippling defect that gets glossed over.

Usually there's an heir apparent who cruises to the nomination with all his defects glossed over by whoever the mysterious GOP kingmakers are. This year, not so much.

Not really. They might be weak candidates, but they're not "no fucking way" candidates. Dole and GHW Bush were boring old dudes, but they weren't pro-choice, or Mormon, or insane.

I watched an interview with Mike Huckabee earlier this evening. I have to say, I'm relieved the GOP hasn't yet figured out that he should be a top-tier candidate. I'm convinced he would be a real contender.

Dole's insane, I'm thinking. Yes, though, they do have a weak set this year, from the perspective of the modern (i.e. alarm bell batshit way out of line AH-OOOO-GAH AH-OOOO-GAH dangerous) GOP.

17: I was convinced early on that Huckabee would take it easily. They are mesmerized by difficulty, I guess.

I've had the thought about Huckabee as well, but I think someone pointed out in the comments that all of us liberals liking the guy was a pretty good sign that he wasn't going to be the Republican nominee.

Yeah, I keep expecting his candidacy to catch on, and it never does. It's weird; even such a blatantly airheaded empty suit as Fred Thompson has had more buzz. All I can figure is that he seems both reasonably intelligent and personally pleasant and that places him well outside the typical GOP presidential candidate mold. But then Romney's doing okay, so I guess that theory breaks down too.
