Rubio Top VP Candidate at Paddypower and Intrade

The Washington Post reports today that betting has opened on the Paddypower.com website for the Republican VP candidate.  Marco Rubio is currently the top choice at odds of 11/4 (26.7%), which is almost same as the current Intrade odds for Rubio (25.3%).  Chris Christie has the second highest odds on both sites, 1/6 on Paddypower (16.7%) vs. 11% on Intrade.

A good friend and New Jersey resident recently told me that New Jersey was so desperate to get rid of Corzine that voters chose a guy they all hated - Chris Christie.

I don't think much of him - not because he's been tough on the unions, but because he definitely has some very strong fascist tendencies. He may be what the uber corrupt New Jersey needs, but God forbid he ever becomes the vice president.

Methinks,

"God forbid he ever becomes the vice president."

Ok, but he couldn't be anything other than an enormous improvement over the numbnuts we have now in that office.

Good point, Paul. Hamsters could replace Plugs Biden and we'd all be better off.

I fear for the republic.

Rubio doesn't want to insert himself into Romney's No. 2 slot, no matter who much Romney begs him to join his ticket.

Young Republicans are all about their careers and the TV shows or beaming lobbyists, and are not going to "take one for the party."

That's why McCain had to scrape so low in the barrel until he found Palin. Palin, like Romney, thinks the Cold War is still on, or at least wants to spend money like it is still on.

Look for Romney and Bill Marlowe. Who is Bill Marlowe? I don't now, and I never heard of Palin before McCain pulled her from obscurity either.

Good point, Benji. Young Republicans stand in stark contrast to young Democrats who are all busy stealing elections (see Connecticut 2010 - particularly Himes's re-election by garbage bags filled with "lost" ballots which arrived in Bridgeport just as it was clear he was losing).

Welcome to politics, baby.

I love this coming from one of the mindless millions of morons who voted for Obama/Biden. True, Palin is not well versed in Obama's specialties like community organizing and the complete works of Saul Alinsky, but she also is at least smart enough to understand food stamps and unemployment checks do not create jobs. She would never say that the internet and ATM's destroy jobs. That's more than you can say for your boyfriend, Benji. She also correctly predicted what a smoking crater Obama would make of this country if he was given the chance. That's more than you can say, Benji.

Which is just more evidence of what a clueless nitwit you are. Palin was one of the possible VP picks mentioned routinely during the campaign of '08. But you were too busy hopping aboard the Hopeandchange train to nowhere to actually pay attention to the issues.

One question, "Benji".

What comes after a trillion?

Che-
A quadrillion if memory serves.

Romney has his No. 2 slot wide open baby, just begging for someone big enough to fill the hole.

But no one is coming forward to insert themselves into the gaping vacancy.

What lubrication or enticement can Romney offer to get someone to squeeze into his now empty slot?

Don't look for Rubio, or Christie.

And Spiro Agnew is dead.

The fact that you believe this is yet another demonstration you have no idea what you are talking about. Paul Ryan, for one, has said he would consider the VP slot. As has Allen West.

Do your country a favor, Benji, and sit this election out.
