Burr says he'd accept vice presidential nomination

RALEIGH (AP) -- North Carolina Senator Richard Burr says he would accept a spot on John McCain's presidential ticket if asked by the Arizona senator. Burr has joined McCain on the campaign trail several times, stumping for him in places like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Burr and his wife were with McCain on Super Tuesday and the two senators often discuss strategy and policy together. The first-term Republican from Winston-Salem told The Associated Press today his advocacy of McCain is not an audition. Burr says he's simply trying to get the best candidate elected. McCain is the leading candidate for the Republican nomination. Burr endorsed McCain last March. Burr and McCain do disagree on some issues, including campaign finance reform and some aspects of immigration reform. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Best candidate?

HAHAHAHA! Let's just say "the best candidate with a chance of getting the Republican nomination." As for a "best candidate," not a single one worth spit was even fielded by the Republicans. They offered no "bests" at all. * A chameleon former governor - liberal today, conservative tomorrow! * A senator who is more liberal than many Democrats and hates the First Amendment * A preacher/former governor who has a lot of dirty laundry in his home state that he chooses not to explain * A former mayor who can't stand the Second Amendment * A narcoleptic former senator who might have done a good job if he had ever demonstrated the least bit of drive or motivation toward the presidency * A nutjob Congressman who wants us to roll the clock back to 1840. (SIGH!) We face a grim four years with the Socialists holding both branches of Congress and the White House, simply because the Republicans couldn't get anyone better than this line-up of bums. Let's say a quick prayer that Bloomberg joins as an independent. That's the ONLY way we're going to keep the Robin Hood wealth-redistribution mob out of the White House.
