    As creep? Er, VEEP?

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

    •  I would bet against it. (16+ / 0-)

      I have seen scant evidence that lying is detrimental to the GOP.  Hopefully this will be an exception, but I wouldn't put money on it.

      I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

      1) it would be an open admission of  the campaign's incompetence and recognition of certain defeat (cf., Thomas Eagleton ).
      2) if they didn't pull Palin off the ticket after her first two weeks, you think they'd pull Ryan?
      3) the performance he gave was exactly the performance he was hired to give. They couldn't be bothered worrying about whether the rest of the world thinks Ryan is a lying POS when they still hadn't secured their base.

        I wonder when Mitt starts the Lame Blame Game, and outing someone who helped organize that mess.

          It's going to take a few days, I think, for them to realize just how unsuccessful it was. Not just the Eastwood disaster, but a whole bunch of other things that simply weren't handled very professionally, unforced errors if you will.

          And it's pretty much of a piece with the way his whole general election campaign has been run. I started wondering about the people in charge, and their job security, quite a while ago, maybe back as far as Fehrnstrom's Etch-a-Sketch moment.
