My 2012 Dream Ticket

In 2012 when Obama / Biden / and Billary get the axe I would love to see the following cast take over

Mississippi Gov Barbour as Pres
Texas Gov Perry as VP
LA Gov Jindal as Sec of Tresury
WI Gov Walker as Sec of Labor
Condi Rice as Sec of State
Sen McCain(R-AZ) as Sec of Defense
Former AK Gov Palin as Sec of Interior
AZ Sherif Joe Arpaio as Sec of Homeland Security
Ben Stein as Sec of Education
SFC (retired) Wallace Tyson as Sec of Veteran Affairs
Exelon CEO John Rowe as Sec of Energy
Matty Moroun as Sec of Trasportation
Doug Oberhelman as Sec of Housing and Urban Development
Donald Trump as Sec of Commerce
Irene Rosenfeld as Sec of Ag
J. Cristian Adams as Attorney General

They'd do nicely ... most would have to take pay cuts ... but they'd kick butt and take names

Joe Biden Railroad

By Joe Stossel
It's amazing how modern politics resembles scenes of Ayn Rand's best-seller Atlas Shrugged.

Like the one in which a high-ranking government official pumps millions of dollars into a failing railroad company. The grateful railroad CEO rewards the government official by renovating his hometown train station and naming it after the government official. The renovation costs $5,700,000 more than expected.

Then comes the ribbon cutting ceremony. The CEO gets on one of his trains to go to the ceremony, but it breaks down. No surprise there: One out of every four trains his company runs is late. The CEO, chuckling at the irony, abandons the train and takes a car to the ceremony.

Unfortunately, that wasn't a scene in Atlas Shrugged. It happened this weekend.

The government official is Joe Biden.

By the way, the first of three Atlas Shrugged movies opens next month, appropriately on April 15th. (TAX DAY)
