Devil with the Red Dress On

We may be able to forget about blue dresses for the 2008 election cycle, as the next presidental elections may be featuring red ones. Here’s the take from Washington Monthly:

Lurking just over the horizon are liabilities for three Republicans who have topped several national, independent polls for the GOP’s favorite 2008 nominee: Sen. John McCain (affair, divorce), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (affair, divorce, affair, divorce), and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (divorce, affair, nasty divorce). Together, they form the most maritally challenged crop of presidential hopefuls in American political history.

This may prove interesting. In the very least, it should provide enough material keep Jon Stewart very busy. Props.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. There were press reports alleging that the former mayor of New York wanted to move his mistress into the Mayoral mansion before his separated or ex-wife had moved out.

    However, none of these people have vaguely the difficulty that Governor Romney will have with the antiMormon religious bigots.

    Right, Romney would have just married the mistress and expected both wives to cohabitate…

  3. These men were only divorced because their wives were leading them down a slippery path to Hell. Sometimes you must do what you must do to safeguard your own soul.

  4. And here I was hoping that the biggest liability for McCain and Giuliani was the fact that they are Fascist scum. Oh, well, such is life in the New Libertarian Order…
