Mike Huckabee the Nomad

Since the upcoming debate will be taking place in Michigan, home of the automobile, I thought I would put together an automobile analogy about the candidates. First I shall start with Mike Huckabee.

Due to the fact that Mike Huckabee is pro-family and has a lot of good ideas to bring with him I believe he will enter the debate looking like a 1956 Chevy Nomad, the station wagon version of the Bel Air. The Nomad may not have been expensive or had lots of bells and whistles, nor was it sporty, but it was stable and reliable, just like Mike Huckabee.

I believe Mike Huckabee will come out of the debate looking like a 1956 Chevy Bel Air. As the old ads said, "The hot one's even hotter." Just like the 1955 Bel Air was hot, and the 1956 was hotter, Mike Huckabee has been getting hot lately with the media taking more notice of him. But he will be even hotter after the debate.

Now for Mitt Romney. Sure he has great looks and many in the media are hyping him like a Corvette. But is a Corvette really useful? Or is it just for show?
He will end up looking like an AMC Gremlin. People who think he is so great because of his money will see him for who he really is.

Fred Thompson is like an Edsel. He is overstated for all his bells and whistles. This is going to be his first debate. He has been hyped by media and many Republicans. But once the curtain comes up everyone will see that those bells and whistles are useless just as 1950's consumers did with the Edsel.

Rudy Giuliani may be citified, suave and cosmopolitan like a Lincoln Town Car, but he is too fancy to really understand the needs of the American people.

John McCain is like a Plymouth Horizon. Ya know how ya can be driving down the road and ya see one of those old Horizons and think to yourself, "There's still one of those left?". He is old and has nothing left to give, yet he is still around.

Sam Brownback is like the old FORD anagram, Found on Road Dead. He has crashed and burned. It is time for him to bow out gracefully.

Guys like Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter aren't too bad, I am sure they are nice guys, but they are like fuzzy dice without a car to put them in.

Oh you thought I forgot about Ron Paul? No I didn't. He is like some crazy Volkswagen that was painted by stoned hippies. Him and his crazy followers talk about sunshine, peace, love and tip-toeing through the daisies. And they are all colorful characters.

I invite all you gear heads and rockabilly cats and chicks to leave your own comment on car analogies. What cars do you compare what candidates with?

I cracked up laughing at the Sam Brownback thing!

Great post, very unique.

That's what happens when I listen to too much Brian Setzer and old Stray Cats songs ;).
