going to drop Bush from the ticket in favor of SpongeBob SquarePants? I've heard that SpongeBob has a higher favorable rating than George does.
I'm not sure how he fits into Republican image. He doesn't seem to fit the image of a staunch conservative. Well, since George was able to be taught to walk and talk at the same time, I'm sure that SpongeBob's image can be brushed up, also.
On the plus side, he already has a campaign song.
Yes, but there is a problemPaulCL

SpongeBob SquarePants, or "S" to his friends, wants his best friend Patrick to be his running mate. The problem is: Patrick is your prototypical Ivy-league educated liberal Democrat. Hence, a problem with the ticket.

Now Squidword wants into the action too. He wants Rumsfeld's job....we'll just have to wait and see where the seashells fall on this one!

I'm not sure the Republicans want to go down in history as the first major party to nominate a gay presidential candidate.
Not to mention an invertibrate. nmsn69

so I looked this one up on the dictionary and came up with nothing. However, the Bush (both of them) and Clinton adminisrations have had plenty of spineless jellyfish. Going back a further, Henry Kissinger was a bit sponge-like.

He might pull in some Democrat votes, being that he is a little like Al Gore. (A square, and being very absorbent)

If Bush were an animal, he'd be a hound dog, usually sitting on the front porch, barking when the paperboy goes by. You could take him hunting, and he'd loyally lope along with you. Not a cunning house cat, but then without the arrogance and narcissism of the cat, either.
Or a billy goat?mickey-mac

Ramming his head into anyone within striking distance, eating anything in sight, and repeatedly spewing incomprehensible noises?

He thinks that "arrogant" means that he smells good.
