    I am hoping he'll choose NJ's bloviating bully, Christie. That will rid us of an embarrassment and hopefully finally silence him.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him go outside the current mainstream crop of political players. Some fresh meat would be interesting.

    Dick Cheney's got a new heart. He should be good for another eight years. :)

    Personally I'd hope for Ron Paul or Sarah Palin. Fat chance of either.

    Surely the great Allen West! Now that he's revealed that "75 to 80" Dems in Congress are "card-carrying Communists." Gawd, I'd love to see him run. Entertainment every day!

    The thing is, the Dems are so godawful stupid. Instead of responding to his comment with mockery and ridicule, they took it seriously and responded seriously. Really, they're pathetic.

    They should get little red Commie cards printed up and pass them out. Wear little red hammer-&-sickle lapel pins. Whatever. I'm sure others can come up with more clever things than I can. The point is to make a joke out of it. Instead of huffing and puffing about how "offended" and "insulted" and blah blah blah they are.

    It's not such a joke. The commies quit running their own candidates & endorsed the Dems a few years ago. There's also a caucus of Dems in Congress that used a lot of communist symbolism until they were ridiculed for it publicly, at which point it was removed from their web site.

    Quite true -- it was a few years ago, but when I read about it, I was able to retrieve a copy of their web page with the symbolism from the internet archives (Wayback).

    The Democratic Socialists of America aren't Communists. They're not the same thing.

    And a clenched fist does not a Communist symbol make!

    There are tons of political symbols that use a clenched fist.

    Technically not, that's true. They fall about a quarter-notch short of being full fledged communists. Note that true communism never happened, never will happen. What evolved were oppressive socialist regimes that called themselves communists.

    Both communists and socialists are anathema in America, so what little distinction there is doesn't mean much.

    In this case the connection is very clear. The one in the background image was their symbol specifically, and they hosted the web site for the Progressive Caucus.

    The Democratic Socialists of America has a long history of supporting communist oppression. One really good example is the songbook of the Democratic Socialists of America (again, courtesy WayBack because this was removed from public view when attention was brought to bear on it):
