In the past few weeks we keep hearing, "If Mitt Romney loses Michigan, I think we will see a brokered convention." Which I would agree with if I knew what a brokered convention was. It turns out that it isn't all that complicated: When none of a party's candidates (in this case, the Republican Party) does not get the required number of votes from delegates in the primaries, they basically say "screw it" and hunker down in a smoke-and-bourbon-filled room until they decide on a winner.
Chris Christie- 6/1: Maybe the only Republican other than Ron Paul who could pull votes from Democrats.
Jeb Bush- 10/1: If he had a different last name he'd be 8/1.
Mitch Daniels- 10/1: If he looked less like a cartoon evil doer, he'd be 8/1.
Marco Rubio- 12/1
Eric Cantor- 15/1: Is he even a real Cantor? I haven't heard him sing once. Not sure I can trust this guy...
Tim Pawlenty- 20/1
Joe Wilson- 50/1: And, no I don't lie.
Bobby Jindal- 60/1: Bobby, you're not white, yet you still want the nomination of the GOP. Best of luck to you with that one, pal.
Sarah Palin- 75/1: Is ChicagoNow "Lamestream"? And has anyone else noticed that the spoonerism of her name is Parah Salin (para-sailin')?
Odds it's a current Governor: 9/5
Odds the nomination is NOT a white male: 500/1
Odds Sarah Palin offers to break a tie via, "a Snow Machine off": 5/1
Odds the nominee is Marco Rubio and he names Ralph Lauren as VP and runs on the Marco Polo ticket: 400/1
