Here’s what I didn’t talk about yesterday

Stevens wonders, do you think this is what Romney intended people to think of when they looked at his logo?

    As allowed by Delaware law, Joe Biden ran for VPOTUS and re-election as Senator at the same time in 2008. Once the Obama-Biden team was elected, Biden resigned his Senate seat.

    I don’t remember that he ran ads for his Senate seat while he was running, tho, do you?

    I don’t remember either. He was in that seat so long, he probably didn’t have to. I also saw where LBJ (1960), Lloyd Bentson (1988), and Joe Lieberman (2000) did the same thing while running for VEEP. That I didn’t remember at all. Apparently you can make a double run for federal office in some states and not in others.

      I’m not criticizing him for running, that’s his right. You’re not getting my point. My point is not that he’s on the ballot for the office but that he’s actively advertising for it. As far as I know, no one running for VP while also on the ballot for a different office actively campaigned for that other office.

      He’s actively campaigning for the congressional seat.

    With regard to Pat Robertson, hey, the old guy was trying to make a joke, and he has absolutely no talent for it. Maybe he should have recommended a move to Cairo of the Arab Spring instead. One of the more prominent Islamic clerics there has appeared on TV with lectures on this subject. He tells the Muslim men that, if they don’t want a divorce, they can beat their wives as much as they want in order to instill household discipline and teach her that the male has higher status than the female. Advice and technique courtesy of The Prophet himself.

    Wolverine, again, you’re missing the point. I’ve got no problem with Pat Robertson being a misogynistic neanderthal. That’s his right and his MO.

    The point is, what does it say about ROMNEY that he is out campaigning with this misogynist neanderthal?

  6. Wolverine

    Well, quite frankly, I don’t know exactly why you want to make such an issue of the Ryan ads. If there is some sort of complaint here, it would seem to me that it’s between him and constituents in his Congressional district. Personally, I don’t see much partisan traction to be gained from it.

    Heck, ask Romney why Robertson was out there. How about “big tent”? Your side always seems to go on about that sort of thing in politics.

    BTW, maybe you can stop using the term “Neanderthal.” It seems that anyone of European ancestry has a dose of Neanderthal DNA in him or her. Latest scientific findings using DNA recovered from prehistoric sites in Spain and the Balkans indicates the likelihood that homo sapiens coming out of Africa encountered Neanderthals in the Middle East and did a bit of “merging.” So, now we can ALL look in the mirror and see our Neanderthal side. We’ve got conservative Neanderthals, liberal Neanderthals, and moderate Neanderthals right her in good old Loudoun County. I hear that Broadlands is chock full of ‘em!

    Interesting TV show. You might get a long-term gig out of that. Stevens would become a showbiz husband! Patti did a nice job as moderator. I always get a chuckle out of John. Boy, when he gets to talking, it’s like the gas pedal got stuck on the floor!

    Incidentally, I found something which beats Paul Ryan’s campaign ads all hollow. In 1960, Texas law did not allow for a dual federal run. When JFK put LBJ on the Dem ticket in 1960, LBJ browbeat those Texans into changing the state law just so he could run for VEEP and Senate. Now, I would call that campaigning! In fact, they call it “Lyndon’s Law.” Texan Lloyd Bentsen took advantage of that in the 1988 campaign.

    LBJ. You know, I voted for that feller in 1964, when he was parading around as the “peace” candidate and trying to make Goldwater out to be a potential warmonger. Then, after LBJ won the election in a landslide, he turned around and sent me to Vietnam. Nice, that.
