Choosing a Pony for his running mate would guarantee that i the unlikely chance he won, Romney would almost instantly be assassinated by one or more bronies determined to see a magical cartoon horse as president of the US.

I’ll leave it up to the audience to decide where that falls on the pro/con scale.

Santorum is the worst kind of conservative. He’s an evil and twisted version of Stephen Colbert’s parody of Republicans. He’s just an awful human being. The fact that he got as far as he did is frankly somewhat embarrassing for Americans.

Why does Romney need billions more dollars to beat these bozos? Half of his spending should be going to Santorum and Newt to keep them in the race. The best thing Romney’s got going for him is so he can stand next to those two and give the “get a load of THIS GUY” face.

That pony is Rainbow Dash, by the way.

Yeah, I mean there’s no way he’s choosing the alleged closet lesbian. If anything he’ll pick Applejack for her success as a business owner and “job provider.”

Plus she’ll be the closest option to providing Southern demographic appeal. Actually, I wonder what defines “flyover country” in Equestria, given than a third of the entire population actually lives in clouds.

That was much fun, especially the “cons” of him choosing Blob Ford! …because they are 100% accurate! It’s true, Mitt, there is no downside! (heh, heh) :-)

I really hope he doesn’t pick Tab as a running mate, because I might not be able to resist its healthy goodness.

…and the push to remove the post of Vice President altogether gains more traction.

We can always re-write the Constitution to get someone else to cast the tie-breaker vote in the Senate AND protect the spacetime continuum.

I think the most impressive thing about this list is that you managed to choose fourteen candidates with more intelligence and charm than the current vice president.

Rainbow Dash would not have anything to do with Romney. She personifies the element of Loyalty, and Romney can’t be loyal to any issue for more than five seconds.

If anypony would run with Romney it would be Rarity. She’d do it just for the chance to make Mormon undergarment design more fabulous.

Well if he went with a Pony, he would certainly get backing from Latveria, which could be really useful. American Crossroads may have gobs and gobs of money, but you know what it doesn’t have? A time travel platform. Think about it.

Picking your VP is like picking what color to paint your bedroom. You want something you look good in comparison to but aren’t turned off by.

Therefor, Romney should put the color Red on the ticket, then paint his bedroom Paul Ryan.

Allows Mitt Romney to take wildly differing positions on any issue simultaneously

Mitt Romney already has that ability, so you’ll have to come up with some other PRO for this one.

Kcarab Amabo is more palatable than Santorum, at the very least. You don’t successfully develop man-portable singularity cannons without top-notch science education.

Samberg’s Santorum voice is really similar to his Nicolas Cage “Get in the Cage” voice, which makes me think Samberg-as-Cage would be an excellent VP pick. Altrnately, Samberg-as-Mark-Wahlberg.

Argh, thank god I am not an American. The vote for Rainbow Dash would be so hard not to do automatically. Oh, and as a brony, I am pretty sure the “completely apathetic towards/ignorant of bronies” vote waaaay outweighs the “I hate bronies” vote, a small, very vocal minority that really, really, reallllly needs to do something better with their time than run around shouting “I hate people who like My Little Pony,” an argument that just screams First World Problems. Hating people who like cartoon shows reeks of a damaged mind that should know that hate is valuable, and that hate should be saved for more worthy targets: dictators, Rob Ford, lint, stickers on fruit, the fact that easter candy is three times as sweet than when I was young – you know, things that actually cause you problems.

I wonder if there is a correlation between Rob Ford and how sweet milk chocolate is nowadays.

T-PAIN/RAINBOWDASH 2012!

It’s a not quite hilarious but still slightly amusing that the pony you picked happens to have a lot of fannon portraying her as a lesbian.

I’ve never heard of Jason Sudeikis before, and when I saw the picture, I thought it was a bad picture of Adam Baldwin. Who is indeed an avowed conservative. Hmmm.
PROS:
- Excellent sniper
- A veteran of, like, everything
- Not a Washington insider

CONS:
- Smokes
- Distressing tendency to get tied up, beat up, or otherwise imperiled by waifish women
- Technically a Democrat

Romney absolutely cannot choose Mirror Universe Abed, or any other Community character, otherwise I would feel required to vote for them. I’m pretty sure I’d have to turn in my vagina if I did and I’m pretty attached to it.

Except for Pierce Hawthorne. He can have Pierce Hawthorne, but Fat Neil is right out!

I have a hard time imagining Romney being comfortable with Mirror Universe Obama, because that guy would be too liberal for him. Mirror universe Obama would, after all, have:

-Not expanded offshore drilling;
-Not extended the Patriot Act;
-Worked to prosecute the people who practiced “enhanced interrogation” rather than giving them a free pass;
-Fought tooth and nail against the indefinite detention bill, rather than finally promising not to veto it and signing it into law while saying “Hey, I’m signing this into law, but my administration totally won’t do this even though I’m making it all legal, cross my heart and hope to die”;
-Not blocked the Palestinian bid for statehood, thus allowing Palestinians to maybe get a fair shake for once;
-Not ordered the execution of an American citizen outside the borders of the United States without a trial, regardless of what that person had done;
-Stopped using warrantless wiretaps;
-Not extended the Bush tax cuts;
-Not be willing to bomb Iran or support another power doing so without concrete proof that Iran was definitely developing nukes and was definitely planning to use them.

Mitt Romney and whoever he picks as his running mate would, of course, do everything wrong that our universe’s Barack Obama has done wrong plus a whole shitload of other terrible things (all kinds of deregulation, bringing back DADT, getting rid of anything that even comes close to universal healthcare, probably wanting to bomb Iran RIGHT NOW, etc), so I’m certainly not encouraging anybody to vote for that ticket. I am saying that this is an election where, if you vote, you’re not choosing between a conservative and a liberal. You’re choosing between a conservative and a right-leaning centrist.

@Remus: Rarity is the Element of Generosity, and we know where the Republicans stand on that kind of thing.

The choice for them would be Pinkie Pie, because like them, Pinkie puts the party before any other consideration.
