Lunchtime Poll

LTP: 4/2/12

If you could choose presidential nominees to go head-to-head in a debate for the presidency of the United States of America, whom would you choose?

I ask because family get togethers at my parents’ house tend to devolve into shouting matches, but this last one did not. Why, you may or may not be asking? Because I – in a display of saint-like patience – allowed my mind to drift past discussions on the relative merits of Santorum vs. Ron Paul and, instead, pictured my ideal election debate, one in which I chose the nominees and asked my questions. You know, there are so many people I would like to see argue with one another. Sarah Michelle Gellar vs. Mel Gibson (no contest: Ms. Gellar would win); Barbara Walters vs. Ann Coulter; Sotomayor vs. Dr. Laura Schlessinger. In the end, however, my ultimate would be Elmo vs. Big Bird in a brawl to the death over topics like healthcare, education, and tax reform.

What about you? Whom would you pick for a presidential debate? Ladies and gents, I really can’t wait to hear you chime in on this one.

My picks would be Richard Sharpe (Sharpe’s Rifles etc. as played by Sean Bean) vs. Cullen Bohannon (Hell on Wheels as played by Anson Mount). Mostly I just want to watch good looking men in period dress argue with each other I think.

For a bonus we could have Patrick Harper (Daragh O’Malley) vs. Elam Ferguson (Common) for vice president.

It must be Monday, because I had to reread this post twice before I understood. And after that, immediately though about Regina (The Evil Queen – OAUT) versus Willow (Buffy). R. would be all very ‘You’re A Gay Hippie!’ while Willow can calmly explain that Knowledge Is Best and that the majority shouldn’t be ruled by the minority.

I did it right, or am I a complete donkey now? PM can be tough, y’all.
