Every time I hear names suggested for Vice President, the list includes (for the Democrats) at least one “pro-choice” Catholic. The “current list” for Obama includes recently excommunicated “Catholic” Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, Gov. Tim “I pardon witches who do abortions” Kaine of Virginia and pro-choice Hispanic Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico.
The reasoning behind this is the realization that Catholics are such a swing vote in this election. Of course, with “independent” and even some Republican Catholics bending over backwards to justify Obama’s Satanism, in regards that he’s supposedly anti-War (even though Obama’s position is to pull out of Iraq so he can invade Iran), I doubt any of them would care. “Oh, look, a Catholic!” Like they said about Kennedy and whomever else. The outright rejection of Kerry was probably anomalous.
Similarly, in terms of turncoats, they keep suggesting liberal and pro-choice Republicans as an effort at “unity.”
The list of “possibilities” for McCain includes numerous pro-aborts, including Tom Ridge (when even Donald “He/She/It” Trautman has the guts to condemn a guy, you know he must be bad), and “centrists”, when McCain is already seen as too liberal.
But the name that keeps coming up is Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal: he’s Catholic, very conservative (spiritually, morally and politically); he’s Asian, adding a multiethnic ticket; he’s young, balancing McCain’s perceived age vis-a-vis Obama; he is, like Obama, kind of “out of nowhere.” Unlike Obama, Jindal actually has a *record*: in his short time as governor of Louisiana he’s done a lot of reform to a state that’s proven one of the biggest political albatrosses in post-Katrina America.
I could go for Jindal, but he keeps saying he doesn’t want it.
