If this happens, I'm moving to Canada

This is from a Washington Post story about Mitt Romney's behind-the-scenes efforts to unite the Republican Party. The last sentence in this excerpt—the one that starts, "Land said he recently ..."—should terrify anyone with a sense of sanity:

Among those being courted is Richard Land, a longtime leader of the Southern Baptist Convention. As a practice, Land said, he does not endorse political candidates, but he is considered a powerful barometer of the evangelical community.

Land said that after a private dinner with Romney last year at Acadiana, a Washington restaurant, Romney’s advisers have been in regular touch. Land said he recently told them that Romney could win over recalcitrant conservatives by picking Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) as his vice presidential running mate and previewing a few Cabinet selections: Santorum as attorney general, Gingrich as ambassador to the United Nations and John Bolton as secretary of state.

That's two of us. Or maybe 200 million of us (I hope).

On another note, autocorrect changed my response to "shads".
