    And each one said that Giuliani, Huckabee or Romney were the most dangerous candidate.  No matter which of them wins someone thinks it's the end of the world.  

    The most beatable candidate is clearly Thompson because he is a slug, but he's so bad he won't even make it to the nomination.

      Thompson is a pretty awful candidate.

      But I mean if we're really, truly looking for the most unelectable candidate out there, how about Duncan Hunter?

      There's a guy's running for President because he thinks it'll protect him from getting indicted in the Duke Cunningham scandal. That's chutzpah!

      1. Pudgy, with bad teeth and badly died hair, lacking anything resembling charisma, he doesn't exactly look like a President;
      1. He oozes inside-the-beltway former Committee chairman in a supremely creepy way;
      1. His politics make Tom Tancredo's look like Dennis Kucinich's;
      1. Odds are better than even he's doing a perp walk before the Minneapolis Convention anyway.

      Can you beat that? I doubt it!

        And his son probably will be my next one.  :(

        I agree with you wholeheartedly, but at the same time at least he seems to believe in Global Warming.

          Uh...that's a joke, right? Duncan Hunter:

          Voted NO on removing oil & gas exploration subsidies. (Jan 2007)
          Voted NO on keeping moratorium on drilling for oil offshore. (Jun 2006)
          Voted YES on scheduling permitting for new oil refinieries. (Jun 2006)
          Voted YES on authorizing construction of new oil refineries. (Oct 2005)
          Voted YES on passage of the Bush Administration national energy policy. (Jun 2004)
          Voted YES on implementing Bush-Cheney national energy policy. (Nov 2003)
          Voted NO on raising CAFE standards; incentives for alternative fuels. (Aug 2001)
          Voted NO on prohibiting oil drilling & development in ANWR. (Aug 2001)
          Voted NO on starting implementation of Kyoto Protocol. (Jun 2000)

          I think Joseph Hazelwood, the captain of the Exxon Valdez, had a better environmental record than Duncan Hunter.

            He at least didn't outright deny it in the debates.  I'm under no illusions about Duncan Hunter believe me.

              still have that voting record. He can't see past the campaign contribution in his bank. (Bigger than the nose on his face)
