Hey, how about a “Jeb Bush vs. Palin” brokered convention?

posted at 9:57 pm on February 13, 2012 by Allahpundit

I know, I know. It’s not going to happen. But you can’t throw traffic bait this sweet at me and not expect it to be posted. When I saw it, my eyes lit up like a hitter sitting on a 3-0 count with the bases loaded watching a lollypop curveball start to break.

Think of the storylines. Establishment vs. grassroots. Dynastic blue bloods vs. self-made middle-class populist. Third Bush nominee vs. first woman nominee. It would be the greatest blog story ever. It would also tear the party into thousands of pieces, but never mind that.

Greatest blog story ever.

Santorum’s contraception boom — “We’re all Catholics now,” said Mike Huckabee — won’t hold up. Because we’re not. This race could well go to a brokered convention. If Jeb Bush is proposed, so Sarah Palin should be minutes later. She is now and always has been the singular Jacksonian voice in the original Tea Party phenomenon; the only one who can bring it to the mainstream. Her absence from the primary race has left a vacuum and no substitute has been found. Every other possible or potential leadership hopeful has risen and receded in this long Republican primary season…

Perry won [the Texas gubernatorial race] in a landslide. But why would the Bush establishment pull out all the stops to support Hutchison, who was sure to lose? Because they saw a new conservative movement building with Perry and Palin and were determined early on to stamp it out. They still are.

Bush/Christie or Christie/ Bush as “establishment” representation is bound to bring muffled chuckles (“Hey Abbott!!!”) and Obama would win in a landslide. But Bush/Christie vs. Sarah Palin/Rick Perry positions coming head to head at the Republican Convention would pit the storied worlds of Dexter and Paulie Walnuts; the most notoriously corrupt, burned-out, busted-up, used-up, dangerous, underwater and broke Eastern states, against the new, independent, states-oriented, freedom-seeking constitutional conservatives like Palin of the Western states, Texas and Alaska. Now that would be interesting.

If the convention did deadlock on the first ballot and some establishment favorite emerged as the knight in shining armor — Daniels, Bush, Christie — would a populist favorite jump in as an alternative? If so, who? Remember, if we got to that point, the party would be in a white-knuckle panic that its nominee would be fatally weakened against Obama in the general. Electability, or perceived electability, would be prized then even more than it is now as a way to overcome the chaos of the convention and the fact that the nominee would be starting with little or no organization. That gives the establishment candidate a heavy advantage, especially if he can entice populist-minded delegates by naming a grassroots hero (like Rubio, say) as VP in advance. The only option I can see that might make it interesting is if the populist alternative somehow got Rand Paul to agree to be on the ticket with him/her. That would lock up Ron Paul’s delegates and would give the populist ticket an element of viability that might get Santorum’s and Gingrich’s delegates to take a second look. Can’t wait.

They have every right to try as much as they want. We have the rightto say no, so don`t sweat it. Having Palin surprise everyone and end up as the nominee would throw the whole campaign out of wack, especialy for Obama.

Meh. Unless a brokered convention comes away with Jindal, Ryan on top of the ticket and Petraeus or Rubio on the bottom, it is coming away with a 54-46 loss. Even if it did, it wouldn’t be great, sending somebody in the middle of the fray who hasn’t been campaigning.

Most likely we’re taking Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich to the big game… best to prepare with one of them.

Zaggs on February 13, 2012 at 10:07 PM

There is absolutely no way Palin will be chosen. If she even put her hat in the ring she would just be embarrassing herself.

If Jeb is smart, he’ll play up his amnesty AND going pretty far right on future immigration… i.e. defending Arizona style immigration laws, taking away all welfare state rights from future illegals, and calling for Plyler vs Doe to be overturned after a “grand compromise”.

ninjapirate on February 13, 2012 at 10:07 PM

Ron Paul on the GOP ticket would guarantee a permanent schism of the GOP and a second Obama term. The effect on the country would be convulsive, followed by the permanent right-of-center to left-of-center transformation the hardcore Left has been seeking for decades, followed by inexorable decline into something worse than Greek-style chaos since what Greeks do, by and large, only affects themselves.

No thanks to a brokered convention. No outcome is positive.

troyriser_gopftw on February 13, 2012 at 10:07 PM

Jeb Bush vs. Palin?

More like Jeb Bush and/or Palin.

There’s plenty to differentiate the two, of course, but they share one thing in common: the nation would have to be in a state of panic matching 2008 for either of them to win (and Jeb would be unlikely even then, and a sure candidate for ejection 4 years later if the economy wasn’t performing incredibly, because he wouldn’t reform government).

HitNRun on February 13, 2012 at 10:08 PM

And that’s different than Mint vs Santy how?

Palin’s people are already fired up by Rick’s christo-facist pandering.

Newts people are fired up.

The middle is loath to elect a Bush or Palin.

So what’s the diff?

freshface on February 13, 2012 at 10:08 PM

For several years I had been looking forward to seeing Sarah Palin debate Obama, and shred his lies and verbally eviscerate him for what he has done to this country.

With Jeb, it would be another political debate.

With Sarah, Obama would be a trophy on the wall.

Sarah Palin would be the right candidate to face Obama. She is the outsider. If the Republicans want to beat Obama Palin would have the best shot. Jeb Bush not so much.

CoolChange80 on February 13, 2012 at 10:10 PM

CoolChange: Palin is outside the Beltway, yes. I don’t think the American people, as a whole, are that desperate yet.

Thing is, I’m not sure we would win in 2016 after 4 more years of Obama. The Democrats could run a highly successful ‘bad cop / good cop’ routine by running someone as an ‘outsider’ (say, Bayh?) as a way of ‘adjusting’ Obama’s ‘excesses’.

Why is it a versus type of situation? They actually have a very significant factor in common: neither of them could re-win their home-state governorship, let alone a national election. And yet, both could garner more votes than Rick Santorum.

Palin and Newt are the only two who would be strong enough to go to Washington, D.C…

First we need to kidnap Jindal, Palin, Perry, Rand Paul…etc lock them in a room with no audience and have a 2 hour debate. Then parachute them into the convention(with obligatory Twisted Sister soundtrack, laser show and explosions) onto the stage and say, “Ok, Romney, or one of these folks?”

Well?…Chop, chop!

She is now and always has been the singular Jacksonian voice in the original Tea Party phenomenon; the only one who can bring it to the mainstream.

7%: That’s possible. But, really, with a brokered convention, what’s the chances you’ll get someone who is willing to take on the Beltway? Palin would be the ideal candidate for that, but not only does she have the results of 2008 to wade through, she also has her well-earned reputation for cleaning up corruption _in the GOP_. Do you REALLY think that the GOP Establishment will let her any nearer the nomination than absolutely possible?

Personally, I don’t care about salvaging ANYTHING for the GOP. I want conservatives in the House, and if you elect any conservatives under the auspices of the GOP, the Establishment treats them as bought-and-paid-for votes on bills.

Rather like the GOP treats their conservative base: bought-and-paid-for votes for election. :p

Why is it Jeb or Sarah?

Can’t I have both? In either order?

Romney will keep it respectable against Obama. Heck, he could still possibly win, though Obama isn’t acting too scared. Newt and Rick are dead-bang losers.

If Romney picks a respectable VP candidate he could keep it close, but we all know Axelrod, Plouffe and Jarrett know how to win a close election (they’re Chicago crooks).

But Jeb / Sarah? Or Sarah / Jeb? Even if the establishment-Bushie types and the TP-populist types hate each other, at some point they recognize that they NEED each other. That’s the whole point of coalition building.

Pick both. That would electrify, then unify, the party for the fall. The MSM would fall over in shock. Axelrod would have to tear up his playbook and come up with another.

Crazy, I know, but maybe, just maybe, crazy-smart.

Basils: That was clear after the way the GOP betrayed the people who gave them the House in 2010. If they’re going to die, let them die.

We owe them nothing.

I thought the plan was for Obama to beat Mr. Birth-Control-Ought-To-Be-Illegal Santorum in a 60-40 contest. So is it now Obama vs I’m-glad-to-get-to-be-here Palin in a 65-35 contest?

The Party of Stupid has a death wish.

I don’t know about you, but I have earned a masters degree. I can tell that Obama is going to beat all of our candidates thus far.

The fact that you even uttered a name-calling reference just speaks to the fact that you’re a leftist.

Forget about Palin or another Bush. Why not get someone that can unite the base and the establishment like Jindal? He has a more impressive resume/record than Palin and a down-the-line conservative record unlike Jeb.

Sure!!!!The Mitt thread was on it’s way to 1,0000, and then you throw a skirt in front of him!
