Rick Santelli for vice president
Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | December 26, 2011 | Don Surber

Four years ago, unsatisfied with the South Park-style choices for president — Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney or John McCain — conservatives looked to the 49th State and began clamoring for Sarah Palin for President. From Glenn Reynolds on December 12, 2007: “THE SARAH PALIN JUGGERNAUT is gathering steam!” (That link alas died in the great re-formatting of 2009.) She failed for a number of reasons, not the least of which was her failure to prepare for big-time interviews and the icy reception by Cindy McCain and John McCain’s staff.

This time out, there is no Rudy Giuliani or John McCain, but there is Mitt Romney and he needs some help. Interviewed for a Boston Herald story, Glenn Reynolds offered his sage advice and a link: “IN THIS PIECE ON THE IOWA CAUCUSES, I suggest that the conventional wisdom is likely to come true. But they left out my suggestion of Rick Santelli for Vice President, a guy whose very presence on the ticket would be a reminder that Obama’s policies have failed miserably to live up to their initial promises.”

Now then, there are a few problems with this suggestion.

1. We do not know if he will run. Why give up a six- or seven-figure gig at CNBC to ruin for vice president? Look what happened to Sarah Palin after she ran: book deal, Fox News deal, TLC deal. $12 million estimated income in 2009.

Where does Don Surber sign up? I can just see my daughter on Dancing With The Stars.

2. Who will vote for someone from Chicago whose main accomplishment is running his mouth.

I mean other than 53% of the country.
