Rubio and Portman Surpass Christie for VP Odds Following Bilderberg Week

At least, according to Vegas oddsmakers.  One thing can be certain in the U.S...  anything and everything can be gambled on.  

After much of the consiparacy theories flying around, Sen Rubio takes the lead after speaking to a Council on Foreign Relations crowd prior to last week's top secret Bilderberg meetings.    Also surpassing NJ Governor Chris Christie was Junior Senator Rob Portman, also known as "the Best of the Boring White Guys" by some media outlet founded by a NY statist.  

Gaining even more steam from the Bilderberg conspiracies and breaking into this light-hearted "top 6" was IN Governor Mitch Daniels, who was said to be in attendance at Bilderberg, moving him into a virtual tie with Tim Pawlenty and Bob McDonnell.

Here is the complete list courtesy of Sportsbook

(Be proud America...  this is what we've become)

2012 Republican Vice Presidential Nomination - Odds to Win (All Bets Action)
Marco Rubio +200
Rob Portman +250
Chris Christie +500
Tim Pawlenty +1200
Mitch Daniels +1200
Bob McDonnell +1200
Paul Ryan +1500
Condoleeza Rice +1800
Bobby Jindal +1800
Kelly Ayotte +2000
John Thune +2500
Jeb Bush +3000
Susana Martinez +3500
Nikki Haley +3500
Rand Paul +3500
Rick Santorum +4000
Mike Huckabee +4000
Michele Bachmann +15000
Sarah Palin +15000
Newt Gingrich +20000
Herman Cain +20000

For the record, I put $10 on Herman Cain.   What can I say?  I love betting on the dark horse (not in a racist way, but in a hallucinated fantasy of winning big, big money kinda way).   I'm also bored over the lack of women coming out of nowhere with accusations of sexual misconduct this election.   It was more fun with those weekly "surprises".  Go Herman!

Well, what can I say? If Alex Jones and his fearful-of-what's-lurking-under-the-bed Infowars cohorts says it's so, then it must be true. [insert rolling eyes here]

And then there's the other group (well, maybe the same group) that claims Rubio is not a natural born American, even though he meets the most commonly accepted legal definition of such by virtue of being a citizen from birth, with no action on his part (or taken on his behalf) required.

Yeah, Alex Jones is like the political equivalent of Coast to Coast AM.

It will be fun in the future calling leftists "birthers" if/when Rubio is running for a higher office. Irony that thick could clog an artery. Bloomberg will have to put a limit on the number of times you can listen to Rubio birthers for fear of it being dangerous to your health.

I was just happy to hear I'm not the only person who thinks of Build-a-Bear Workshop whenever hearing the word "Bilderberg".
