Joe Scarborough and Mike Bloomberg for president and veep? Yeah, that's the ticketaccording to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who floated the idea during his Morning Joe appearance today.
Friedman foresaw Scarborough-Bloomberg running on a platform of Simpson-Bowles on the economy, an "investment agenda" [infrastructure spending], and getting out of Afghanistan ASAP. "I would bet any amount of money," forecast Friedman, that such a ticket would immediately have a "significant, significant" position. View the video here.

Thomas Friedman pushes third-party ticket of Joe Scarborough and Michael Bloomberg! Ping to Today show list.
Obama's only hope is a "Ross Perot" ballot splitter.
I bet he wants them to run ac “conservatives”. He just wants to siphon off the independents who are having Obama buyer remorse. Freidman is a turd.
Hmmm. Not sure what impact this would have.
Tom thinks the whole world is flat to match his head.
That’s frightening. It’s sure to siphon off 0.00000001% of the vote.
I’m still holding out for the Matt Damon/Geico Caveman ticket.
Bloomboob wouldn’t run against Obama. Violates his commitment to political correctness.
I don’t know if they invented the word “assclown” to describe Tom Friedman but if not, they should have.
*Rue Paul runs as an Indy/Libertarian, and takes all the anti-war / dope smoking college students and hurts Obozo.
* If Romney gets it, I can see Sarah going 3rd Party.
If so we have 4 people, Oy Vey...
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Tom Friedman.
I saw that floating...and then I immediately flushed.
You could actually make a characture of Michael Bloomberg.
He reminds me of a NAZI or Napoleon or Stalin. He’s a two but little dictator enthralled with his own importance. He’s so cocky and arrogant and puffed up that I expect him to explode one day at his podium because his tiny little body can;t contain all the importance he feels he generates.
Such a ticket would siphon more votes from Obama.
Do it... the commies and fags will come... just do it!
Whooya, that will do it, NOT.
Please let this happen! I can’t wait to hear Friedman talk about how communist China has such a better system than we do and Nanny Bloomberg demanding we all eat our peas and carrots, kill all smokers and be tucked in a government certified and licensed bed by 7:30pm each evening.
Is it April 1?
