Okay, not that Ricky Bobby.
What’s that you say? Santorum hasn’t gotten the nomination yet and Jindal hasn’t been tapped or accepted a veep nod?
This is purely speculative and while a bit tongue-in-cheek, perhaps not a bad idea.
If Mr. Santorum is able to garner the Republican nomination for President, Mr. Jindal would be a pretty good pick for Vice President I believe.
And, while some might see a campaign trying to piggyback or correlate in some way to the fictional character of Ricky Bobby as not a good choice or possible, perhaps it might be doable and interesting*. I think the character appeals to a lot of the electorate. It’d be interesting to see, that’s for sure.
So, consider this some campaign advice from a know-nothing-nobody for Team Santorum!
Ricky Bobby 2012! **
Feel free to tell me why this would or wouldn’t work and/or whether it’s a good idea.
*I have no idea about trademarks and intellectual properties vis-a-vis political campaigns, much less how Will Ferrell might feel, but considering how often politicians use popular music in their campaigns, why not a popular movie character that oozes “everyman”?!
**I “stole” the idea off of a comment from someone named “Doughboy” on Hot Air after I had offered the idea of Mr. Santorum teaming up with Mr. Jindal.
