If Ron Paul Runs for President in 2012, Who's His Running Mate?

Yesterday Brian Doherty blogged about the eternal recurrence of the third party. Meanwhile over at, they're running a running mate poll for 2012.

(The poll doesn't specify whether we are talking about a major party run or a third party run.)

The list is pretty dispiriting, simply as a catalog of prominent libertarian/libertarian-friendly/libertarian-tolerant politicos (although several on the list may not even meet those basic criteria).

For a fun bonus activity, tally up the number of truthers and/or birthers on the list in the comments section.
