Flash: Rick Santorum's running mate

What if Rick Santorum today named Jesus Christ as his vice presidential running mate?

In a bold move that could dramatically alter the playing field of the 2012 GOP presidential race, Rick Santorum today named Jesus Christ as his vice presidential running mate.

Santorum has made an increasing number of comments about his relationship with Jesus in recent speeches, but few Republican insiders expected him to announce that he was anointing Christ as his vice presidential pick.

"This could be huge for Santorum," said Stenson Partridge, a veteran GOP consultant. "Among Republican voters, Jesus Christ is even more popular than Ronald Reagan."

The Rev. Pat Robertson said he was "blindsided" by the news of Santorum's decision: "I talked to Jesus last night, and he didn't mention anything about it."

At a raucous Santorum rally in Davenport, Iowa, today, supporters of the former Pennsylvania Senator could be seen holding signs reading "SANTORUM/CHRIST '12."

It is "highly unorthodox" for a presidential candidate to select a vice presidential running mate who is a prominent figure in the Holy Bible, says Davis Logsdon, dean of the School of Divinity at the University of Minnesota.

But according to Logsdon, if the Santorum-Christ ticket makes it all the way to the White House, it could be historic in more ways than one: "If Santorum is elected and something happens to him while in office, we would be looking at our first Jewish president."

That's silly.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

I think I would find that offensive if I could stop laughing. :lol:
"Private human life is anything but dull. On the contrary, it is far too interesting. The troublesome thing about it is that it has no real conventions, makes no inner sense. Anything can happen. It is mysterious, unpredictable, unrehearsable. Professional life is not mysterious at all. The whole music world understands music. Any musician can give to another comprehensible rendition of practically any piece. If there is anything either of them don't understand, there are always plenty of people they can consult about it.
Private life, on the other hand, is beset by a thousand insoluble crises, from unrequited love to colds in the head. Nobody, literally nobody, knows how to avoid any of them. Religion itself can only counsel patience and long-suffering. It is like a nightmare of being forced to execute at sight a score much too difficult for one's training on an instrument nobody know's how to tune and before a public that isn't listening anyway." -Virgil Thomson

I heard Virgin Mary is in the running for Secretary of State--maybe she could solve the problems in the Middle East! Regards, Len [fleeing]
