I participated in the RWN poll. My list was:
Mike Huckabee – Big government populist who manages to alienate anyone who isn’t Baptist every time he opens his mouth. He’s the only person who ran this election cycle (besides Ron Paul) that would have made me stay home had he been anywhere on the ticket. We get it, Huck. You hate Mormons! And most likely the church of Christ as well. Huckabee made Mitt’s religion an issue when it never should have been, and I’m pretty convinced that once the economy collapsed in September, Romney is the only Republican that could have actually beat Obama. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a big Romney fan, but he would have been a better nominee than McCain, especially after September. And especially if he’d chosen the Sarahcuda.
John McCain – Let this be a lesson to Shamnestinians: McCain was the best friend of illegal aliens, and the Latino vote went overwhelmingly to the other guy, even though the majority of Latinos are very religious and anti-abortion, and Obama’s not only pro-abortion, he’s pro-infanticide. Also, McCain has been a coward on the issue of the Palin smears — I never thought I’d think of him as a coward or dishonorable, but in the political arena, he’s either a coward or a total jerk. He should have manned up as soon as it started happening, but he never did, and now it’s just another way to push against conservatives, his favorite pastime.
Ron Paul – RON PAUL! I actually agree with him on a lot of issues. But he’s a nightmare on national security, and his supporters do him no favors. Some are Truthers, others try to make him sound more serious by calling him “Dr. Paul.” Yeah, we get it. He’s a dr. That doesn’t make him any more qualified to run the country than I am. Of course, I’m smarter than most doctors I’ve met.
Christopher Buckley – What an arrogant twit.
Colin Powell – He calls himself a Republican, but Republican does not mean conservative. It just means you have an R next to your name. I’ve felt this way for several years, and it was really as surprising as Paris Hilton buying a new handbag for her yip-yap dog when he came out and endorsed Obama. Yeah, never saw that one coming.
Chuck Hagel – Friend or foe? Foe.
Ted Stevens – Felon. We don’t like them so much on our side of the aisle.
Mel Martinez – Shamnestinian.
Hank Paulson – Let’s socialize every failing business in America! All the better if it helps out the unions! We were so stupid to pay off our mortgage when we sold the house.
Peggy Noonan – Self-explanatory.
Ann Coulter – “Let’s act like the tards on the left who have been shouting, ‘Not MY President!’ for years! That’ll show ‘em.” Or… we could be adults and Americans and hope and pray for the wisdom and good choices of whoever is in charge.
Bill Sali – I actually like this guy’s positions on pretty much everything. But he said some dumb things that people should only say on blogs and lost to a fairly liberal Democrat this year. In Idaho. That was a seat we shouldn’t have lost.
