Blackburn on McCain’s short list? This is where John McCain, could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory


A South Carolina blog claims to have seen the five names on John McCain’s short list for Vice President: Joe Lieberman, Charlie Crist, Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, and Marsha Blackburn.

Blackburn would certainly be a good choice to help consolidate some of the Talk Radio Conservative who claim that they’re going to sit out the election rather than vote for John McCain. The Tennessee Republican congressman is fiscally conservative, strong on illegal immigration, and a supporter of victory in Iraq. She is also a scrappy fighter who came to prominence as a Tennessee State Senator who spearheaded the successful fight to stop a state income tax proposed by a Republican governor, and then emerged successfully from a heated primary over two better-funded candidates to win her first term in Congress in 2002. Blackburn is also a darling of Talk Radio Conservatives and frequent guest on their shows.

The blog claims that the McCain campaign is also considering a “secure the center” strategy which would allegedly put 27 states, instead of the usual 12 to 14, into play for Republicans in November.

McCain’s VP choice is crucial…and while Marsha Blackburn…is an attractive person…outside of Tennessee, she is an unknown. John…make it a damn good one, unless you really like the sound of President Obama, or President Clinton.

    I think Blackburn would make an excellent choice, because conservatives know her and love her. However, picking Lieberman would have the benefit of watching Democrat Jews – who, it has been said, “live like WASPs but vote like Puerto Ricans” – have raging brain seizures trying to figure out how to vote. You gotta admit, that would be fun to watch.

  2. Maggie Says:

    This blog is clearly not a reliable source of information. There is no way Lieberman is on any short list.

    No sale.

    I’m not claiming to know who is on the list, but Joe is not there.

    It needs to be Mitt.
