Everybody's favorite pick (Rubio) seems to have taken himself out of consideration.  So who will be Mittens' running mate?

Here is one unconventional choice.  Couldn't be any worse than Sarah Palin.

Here's another idea -- probably a lot closer to being the truth.

Romney has some other tricks up his sleeve.

I'd just like to know how a Corporate-American can sit in the chair and preside over the Senate ;-)

Would it really be that much different than we have anyway?  The multinationals control nearly all of the Senators as it is.

And remember, "Corporations are people, my friend", so why not VP?

I like the idea to require the Senators, and Reps too for that matter, to wear NASCAR jumpsuits with sponsor patches whenever they speak on the floor.

Actually, in light of maintaining "decorum" in the Congressional houses, maybe we should just change that to blazers with patches.  Maybe they can even adjust the size of the patches to reflect the relative amounts of donations. ;-)

Then again, if one of the sponsors is Saudi Arabia, and the patch contains verses from the Qoran, will that violate the separation of Church and State? Evil

Actually it seems gis might be more appropriate for the actual task ... or, to maintain a more functional degree of humility, wrestling singlets. Sure, no one wants to see that, but then those attracted to freaks shows may forgo an hour of Springer (or whatever) now and then to watch the more freaky C-Span.

Au contraire.  Theor favorability rating would immediately go up by 10 points, taking them to a whopping 15% favorability rating.

I like your idea and think we could take it a step further. I think the more wealthy the congressman or senator is, the brighter color green their blazer should be. Then the American people would see that most of the richest people in Congress are really Democrats. Turns out they are the real fat cats profiting off their jobs in government. Keep paying those taxes! Ms. Pelosi needs to brand new pair of shoes!  Evil

Please provide data to back that up.  It is my understanding the wealthiest person in Congress at the moment is Issa, a Republican.

I think thru google you can find a list of all the congressmen ranked by their personal wealth.

He is, however, 7 of the top 10 are Democrats.

Dang, there are those pesky facts again getting in the way of the liberal talking points.  :/

That is a straw man.  Nobody brought that up but YOU.    Nobody here ever denied that we are represented in both parties by people who mostly come from the aristocratic class.

But to upgrade the quality of information (about.com is a pretty low-grade source) here are the top 50 as identified by Roll Call.

According to Roll Call, McCaul is #1.  Either way, the top 2 are Republicans and they are way above any of the others, FWIW.  That accounting is 32 Republicans and 18 Democrats.

And, it is totally irrelevant to anything. Yes, they are all 1%ers. It's just the Dems can see past that.

Everything she said is true. She could have said it better, but it is true none the less. Anne Romney has no clue what life is like for a huge majority of the people, much less the single moms, in this country. It probably is really tough raising kids when you don't ever have to pay a single bill, do your own, or your kids, grocery shopping or cooking or housework or laundry. Yeah, she's a great spokewoman for the GOP on women's issues.
