Hilarious bit of sarcasm here! I vote "Most humorous letter....ever!"

This is a joke, right? I appreciate Mr. Taylor's use of humor to highlight the inadequacies of the Republican candidates for president. However, it would have been even funnier if he had suggested The Donald for interior secretary.

These people you listed think exactly like Romney so how do they offer a different point of view?

David,

You consider your proposed cabinet diverse with opposing ideas? Hardly.

And you assertion that

"...Michelle Bachman. She has wonderful ideas on how to get rid of Obamacare and come up with a workable health system."

I have heard her speak of repeal, but no ideas of how to fix health care.

And Cains 999 tax plan would have Romney paying about ZERO.

I certainly hope Mr. Taylor is a master of sarcasm.

Ron Paul for Sec. of Defense.

This letter was obviously intended as a joke because, with the exception of Huntsman, everyone from top to bottom of the list would be an unmitigated disaster (not only in the suggested offices, but the fact that any of them was in public office at all). This letter wrote the recipe for the destruction of the United states.

Wow, this is sheer fantasy.

If you want to unify the country, conservatives should accept the will of the people when we select a President instead of announcing before he even takes office that they will do everything they can to ensure his failure. The thing is, this is not the first time Republicans have refused to accept the will of the people. Bob Inglis, a former Congressman from SC told Bill Clinton: ""I just want you to know, when you got elected, I hated you. And I asked to be on the Judiciary Committee in 1993, because a bunch of us had already made up our minds that no matter what you did or didn't do, we were going to find some way to impeach you. We hated you. You had no right to be president." And he said, "That's wrong." And he said, "I'm sorry." At least Inglis realized the errors of his ways. Republicans need to do the same now for President Obama.

Quite a bit of pretense here, eh? Who would round out president obamas' next cabinet?

Newt's ego would never allow him to play second fiddle to Romney, though he would love the title of VP (it would sell more books). His big ideas are just a lot of hot air. Thank goodness he will never be president!

Real comedy would have been S. Palin as Secretary of the Interior.

Boy that would be like the remake of "It's a Mad, Mad World."

This article HAS to be a joke.

But then again,
What can we expect....

The far right were the same one's who Boo'd Jon Hunstman Jr. [the best qualified in America] for being in Obama's Administration.

I also reckon that makes Pres. Obama more like Pres. Lincoln as well.

If Newt were Romney's VP, Romney had better sleep in Kevlar pajamas.

Personally, I think Marco Rubio, senator from Florida, would be Romney's ideal pick for VP. He's of Latino descent and would satisfy the conservative side of the GOP. It would make for a solid ticket and satisfy a lot of people.

Sorry, no sleaze please(no go Newt) Biggest ego on the planet. Newt's ego won't even fit into the room. Loose cannon!!

Rubio would also be able to flip-flop right alongside Mitt. Has Rubio decided yet when and how his parents came to the United States? Which story is he telling these days?

How is this any more "funny" than the existing joke?

----------------------

You are, of course, speaking of Gingrich. I agree that he is a master of the absurd, and not fit to have any part in the ruling echelons of the United States.
