Will John McCain Select Known Abortionist Tom Ridge As His Vice President?
Maverick John McCain is at it again, sticking his finger in the eye of the Republican establishment by saying he wouldn't rule out a pro-choice running mate. Two names came to mind -- Tom Ridge and Michael Bloomberg -- and in a recent interview with theWeekly Standard McCain strained to point out that Ridge was far more appealing because he only loved abortions, not both abortions and The Gays.
"I think it's a fundamental tenet of our party to be pro-life but that does not mean we exclude people from our party that are pro-choice. We just have a--albeit strong--but just it's a disagreement. And I think Ridge is a great example of that. Far moreso than Bloomberg, because Bloomberg is pro-gay rights, pro, you know, a number of other issues," McCain said. In other words, a Vice President Bloomberg would administer compulsory gay abortions on the White House lawn in celebration of the Wiccan Summer Solstice. A Vice President Ridge, however, would discreetly perform his abortions in the White House bowling alley like a real man.
All this speculation adds up to one obvious conclusion: John McCain is wriggling mightily to get out of asking Mitt Romney to be his running mate, which is why it will be so hilarious when he finally has to cave.
