Sky-high hopes for Rubio as VP go up in smoke...
Since Rubio is unavailable -and after (colorful) talks with Charo ended in disappointment- actor Cheech Marin has stepped-up to fill the perceived void on the 2012 GOP ticket. Romney's surprise move has shocked some observers, wags wasting no time in labeling the pair 'Flippy -n- Hippy'.

Yet VP nominee-in-waiting Marin oozes confidence:
'Look, the dude made me nervous the first time I met him, too...
I know he looks like a narc, man (laughs)'.
Cheech went on to say "With my (California- ouch) divorce,
I need some dough, bro! And all I got to do is convince a couple million vatos that Romney is 'cool' and I got a easy 4-year gig. Sounds like a real hassle, I know-- but most idiots in this country will believe anything you tell 'em, look what happened last time."
Asked about his qualifications for the job, the washed-up comic retorted sharply:"You know how much #%&@! loco-weed I'd have to huff down to be half as dumb as Joe Biden?"
Marin added "Obama, Axelrod... they were really counting on Hispanics, and they also thought they had the stoner-slacker vote all sewn-up, facing that mama's boy Rubio! But they didn't count on me being in the mix, ha ha."
