  •  My money would be on Barbour (none)
    He is the best (and by best I mean most miserable) clone (can I say say clone?) of Bush. He is former head of RNC so he has a deep rolodex, plus he is governor of Mississippi, so he will get the fundie vote for sure. Dark horse is Bill Owen, who is at least not frothing at the mouth.

    •  but Barbour is a French-sounding name (none)
      And god forbid that the GOP nominate a French-sounding candidate /snark.
    •  Bill Owens (none)
      (my governor) is fortunately out of contention.  He's a Bush clone too, but he's managed to ruin his prospects in two ways:

      (1) His wife left him, and everyone in the state knows it's because of numerous extramarital affairs.  She recently returned to him, but her statements at the time were notably devoid of enthusiasm.  All this really pissed off the wingers.

      (2) He's advocating two referenda this fall that would mitigate somewhat the draconian antitax provisions of the state constitution, and lost the support of the antitax Rethugs and Libertarians in one fell swoop.

      Quite frankly, I don't think anyone here likes him anymore.  Occasionally there are signs of a God in heaven after all.

    •  Odd how his past disappeared... (none)
      ...into the black memory hole of right-wing misdeeds during his gubernatorial (or, in his case, goobernatorial) run. EVERYONE in the MSM simultaneously contracted amnesia and forgot Barbour (or, in his case, Barbar) was CONVICTED of accepting illegal campaign contributions from furriners during his tenure as RNC chief.

      Once again, all together now:
      IOKIYAR

      But they will never let us forgot the blue dress. Now that was SERIOUS!

    •  Please, lets hope so (none)
      IF the repugs can slime my state of Massachusetts as being "out of th eMainstream" lideral, what can we do with Mississipii ....hmmm I can't spell
