Rick Santelli Must Be Declared Vice President Right Now
We have been suggesting it for years:Palin/Santelli '12. Santelli/Shimkus '12. Becton/Santelli '12. Newt/Santelli '12. Sanford/Santelli '12. Cornyn/Santelli '12. "Jessie"/Santelli '36. Mitterand/Santelli '12. Eastman/Santelli '12. Cheney/Santelli '12. MAIL MAN/Santelli '12. Jim Ready/Sanelli '12. This is just a small sample of our recommendations. But now it is time to act. CNBC ranter jackass Rick Santelli, the man who launched the Tea Party by complaining about a modest mortgage modification plan for "losers" that the Obama administration was starting (and never really did much with), must become Mitt Romney's Vice President for eternity.
Fortunately, someone's on it. Emphasis ours, for hilarity emphasizing purposes:
CNBC reporter Rick Santelli’s biggest fan couldn’t talk him into running for the White House.
But Jeff Kahn of the Draft Santelli for President effort admits he’s now on a new mission: creating some buzz in favor of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney choosing Santelli as his running mate.
“Gov. Romney’s best, if not only, chance of defeating President Obama in November will be with non-politician Rick Santelli as his running mate,” Kahn said Friday.
He elaborated: “Rick Santelli complements Mitt Romney as a candidate. Choosing any career politician to run with him will not counter the voters’ concerns with Gov. Romney.”
“Rick’s populist appeal is broadly-based and includes, but is not limited to, traditional Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party members, independent voters, disenchanted former Obama supporters, and disenchanted with Congress, if not disenfranchised in general, Americans,” he said.
Counterpoint, Mitt? We thought not. Romney/Santelli '12, or just [empty]/Santelli '12 would be fine, really.
