Who will Romney choose as VP?

CW appears to be that one chooses a VP to appeal to a demographic that one is weakest with. For Romney, this would seem to be the entire Republican base, who hates his guts with the passion of a thousand suns. And, too, women. So, who should he pick? Palin (It worked so well last time!)? Bachmann (too nuts? Is that possible?)? Frothy (too disgusting? Is that possible?)? Or some fellow corporate-sponsored cyborg like Paul Ryan (too happy in his current job?)? This is fun speculation - anyone out there have an opinion?

Via Firedoglake, I found this amazing spot-on commentary at a site called Black Agenda Report. But what I found really interesting was the sidebar on the right, listing other essay topics, and noting how decisively anti-Obama they are. Yikes. I'm bookmarking that site for sure.
