Or maybe Palin-Bachman.

Who cares which it is?

But what a race it would be in 2012!

The GOP has the opportunity to put together the first female-female ticket for President and Vice President.

Both women are absolute dynamite, both would be wonderful in office.

Can you imagine the conniption fits the left would throw as it tried to slime two women?
What would N.O.W. do?

It would be glorious fun...

Uncanny you say this. I coincidentally had the same thought this morning. I do not think the GOP would permit it, though, the way the machine works.

I was reading about this Michele Bachman on Wikipedia, and came across some reports of anti-Catholicism from the Protestant church to which she belongs. Regardless of whether it's true or not, that's a point very likely to be milked to the exhaustion by the "Obamacatholics".

Steve Kellmeyer said...

Even if she were anti-Catholic, she at least would be picking on people her own size. Anti-Catholics at least wait until someone is born and baptized before they assault them.

Obama kills babies.
I'll take the anti-Catholic any time.

Matheus F. Ticiani said...

Please don't get me wrong, Steve. I'm much less scandalized by anti-Catholic fundies than by the pseudo-Catholic fifth column (no relation to your blog).
I said that, even if it's not true, it will cartainly be more than duly noted by soft-on-abortion crowd.

Steve Kellmeyer said...

Yes, you are absolutely right, Matheus. They tried pulling a similar stunt with Palin's pregnant daughter - using that to drive a wedge.

As with Palin's daughter, however, orthodox Catholics know who their friends are. The ad hominem attacks (and that's what the Bachman attack would be) really don't work with orthodox Catholics precisely because an orthodox Catholic is necessarily a thinking, logically consistent individual.

Take, for instance, my riffs on West, Monaghan and Shea. I've nailed them on logical inconsistencies in their positions. They and their supporters try to pretend it's ad hominem, but orthodox Catholics know it isn't. Good Catholics see the problems with these guys.

Bachman has nothing to fear from decent Catholics who know their stuff. It's the mushy-headed Catholics who will be easily herded.

But even there, the impact is going downhill. Newspapers are now dying at a rate of 10% every six months. They may not exist in any serious form by the time the 2012 elections hit.

Brendan said...

I was under the impression the liberal Catholics constituted the bulk of the Catholic vote.

Newspapers' decline is giving the government the excuse to take them over.

Even if she is anti-Catholic, she is not anti-Catholic-political-viewpoint. This makes her okay in my book. She can disagree with my Church's doctrine, and even refer to the Church as the "Whore of Babalon". This is the true meaning of separation of church and state.

Steve Kellmeyer said...

Amen, brother.

If Palin is "anti-Catholic" and Kerry is "pro-Catholic", then I'll take "anti-Catholic" every time!

TH2 said...

I thought was Palin born Catholic, left and joined some Protestant sect? I am open to correction here.

Steve Kellmeyer said...

TH2, you are correct.

Her family was Catholic, she was baptized Catholic but her whole family left the Church when she was about seven or eight.

I'm not sure she ever made her First Communion.

Her formative teenage years were NOT Catholic. How she views Catholics is an open question, but it certainly can't be any worse than Pelosi, and we have evidence that she's actually a better Catholic than any of her Catholic-schooled counterparts in high office at the moment.
