Politico: Bob McDonnell #4 on Willard’s “incredibly boring white guy” list for VP


    I wonder if “Transvaginal Bob” McDonnell will find this flattering or not.

    …One Republican official familiar with the campaign’s thinking said it will be designed to produce a [VP] pick who is safe and, by design, unexciting – a deliberate anti-Palin. The prized pick, said this official: an “incredibly boring white guy.”


    “If not [Sen. Rob] Portman [R-Ohio], [former Minnesota governor Tim] Pawlenty, [Indiana governor Mitch] Daniels – some other incredibly boring white guy,” the official said. “If there was a fourth name on the list, it’s [Virginia Gov.] Bob McDonnell.”

    That’s right, Bob McDonnell’s only being considered as Willard’s VP pick because he’s an “incredibly boring white guy.” And even then, he clocks in at #4, behind super-incredibly boring white guys Rob Portman (zzzz), Tim Pawlenty (double zzzz), and Mitch Daniels (triple zzzz). On the other hand, Bob McDonnell brings…well, uh, actually nothing to the ticket, other than the downside of his trans-vaginal ultrasound “war on women” fiasco. Oh well, so much for Bob McDonnell getting to be on the losing Republican presidential ticket this year. Don’t worry, though, I’m sure there’s a lucrative job lobbying for dirty energy, for-profit colleges (McD could team up with Brian Moran over there), and/or other corporate bad actors in T-Bob’s future!

    P.S. Note what they are NOT looking for – a women, a Latino, etc.
