If you had to pick a GOP politician to be your grandmother/father, who would you pick?

ross perot (does he count?). he's crazy! think of the stories i could tell at bars. and he's rich.

I was going to go personality but I like Beenu's idea on the money angle.

I'm going to go Bloomberg (still considering him one) or the Governator.

Lincoln?

whichever one has the highest ratio of net worth to other grandchildren. if i have to be the grandchild of a republican, i'd like to at least walk away with some cash when they kick the bucket.

I was going to say Arnold Schwarzenegger too because that is the closest I'll ever get to being a Kennedy.

Also, Beth D, nice call on Lincoln.

Such an odd question, but I will go with Rutherford B. Hayes because I like his name.

Frances Cady....that was my grandfather and he was a state senator in CT so I would probably pick him.

Darrell Issa has the highest net worth, but he is an insufferable prick. So I guess I'd go with Robin Hayes, who is the second richest:

and by Frances I mean Francis.

That's a hard question because comparing republicans and grandfathers are like comparing apples and oranges. One is old, cranky, set in his ways, intolerant of different cultures. The other is your parent's father.
