It is a good place marker, it is a sign.
When Romney does not win, they will refer to this.
They will say nominating a non-Christian cultist that was soft on abortion and gay rights, and a money changer > is why God allowed Obama to win a second term

GOP blew it, they had a true God fearing man in Santorum.

Sarah Palin Strippers Flown to Tampa to Give Republicans Lap Dances For RNC Weekend

Sarah Palin Strippers Flown to Tampa to Give Republicans Lap Dances For RNC Weekend

To rev up for the upcoming Republican National Convention in August, Tampa –– the strip club capital of the South –– strip clubs are getting creative to increase the number of patrons. To cater to potential new customers among the 50,000 people in town for the RNC, one adult venue hired Sarah Palin look-a-like and porn star Lisa Ann to strip at their club. It is no secret that sex and politics often mix, but this becomes a real problem when a party’s stance is built around condemning any kind of deviant sexuality.


Capitalism.

I'm depressed because you're probably right.

I've prognosticated since the beginning of the year as to what the Fox News spin on the Romney-loss will be. And it will be three things:

1 - Romney wasn't conservative enough. Obviously, this holds no water. He's pretty much running to the right of Bush for Christ's sake. But that's what they'll believe considering they think they're the silent majority. That he failed to show strong differences between himself and Obama. In John Kerry's case, this mode of thinking was correct, but certainly not in Romney's.

2 - Romney was a dull candidacy that didn't inspire anyone. This will get about double the air time as #1 and will usually be coupled with it on Fox News.

3 - This is the biggie and the most obvious. The conservatives will complain that the public is uninformed, and Fox News (of all places!) will be the ones to state this case ad nausea. In fact, I already found an article earlier this spring written by Bill O'Reilly that made that exact case. This will ultimately be their big excuse after they raise the Tea Partiers hopes only to see a huge loss in November. "It's not that the rest of the country isn't with us, it's that they're misled by propaganda!"

Pretty much, yeah. It has been really funny watching the GOP and the Fox News types and such trying to build up enthusiasm for Romney. You know after he loses they'll eventually drop him like a hot potato and try and find someone much more tied to the base.

That Palin strippers story is just all sorts of wrong on so many levels. Ick.

He can run to the right of Bush all he wants, but he can't run from his record... that's what they'll spin it as.

Funny thing is... I'm gonna vote for Obama again, but if Governor Mittens was running instead of Candidate Mittens, I'd probably vote for President Mittens.

I'm not voting for the Big O because he's done such a good job... he hasn't. I'm voting for him because the other option sucks.

Me too. But not even because of Mitt 'Snake Oil' Romney.

But because having a Republican President empowers those goons from the Tea Party.
They will control the whole show. Divided Government (balance of power) is one thing we need that we can accomplish (or simply maintain). The congressional Republicans will have no choice but to play a little ball (see: Clinton's 2nd term).

And I say this as someone that is somewhat fiscally conservative.
So really, I think it's not such a bad thing to lose the congress to Republicans. What we don't need is rubber stamping lunacy via Romney pacifying those those Tea Party clowns.

I actually met her once. Did an interview at a media entity I used to be employed at. She's a Lakers fan, which bugged me.

some of them have their hands full and probably won't be saying much:




Quote:
Rev. Grant Storms, critic of Southern Decadence, convicted of obscenity for public masturbation
Published: Wednesday, August 22, 2012, 6:59 PM

By Paul Purpura, The Times-Picayune

The Rev. Grant Storms, the former "Christian patriot" pastor whose marches against homosexuality at New Orleans' Southern Decadence festival briefly put him in the national spotlight, was convicted of obscenity Wednesday, for exposing himself while masturbating at Lafreniere Park last year. In his confession, he described public masturbation as "a thrill," but authorities debunked suspicions that he was a pedophile.

Storms, 55, who lives in Metairie, declined to comment after the conviction. Judge Ross LaDart of the 24th Judicial District Court, who presided over the daylong trial because Storms waived a jury, did not even break to deliberate. He promptly found Storms guilty of the single count of obscenity. He sentenced Storms to three years of probation, citing no evidence of a criminal history.

LaDart also ordered Storms to be evaluated, apparently psychologically. The judge noted that in Storms' confession, he admitted that Feb. 25, 2011, the day he was arrested, was the third time that week that he masturbated in Lafreniere Park.

"Lafreniere Park is a public place," LaDart said in announcing the verdict.

"Lafreniere Park is a place that was chosen by this defendant to engage in a history of masturbation."

Storms declined to testify. His attorneys, Brett Emmanuel and Donald Cashio, did not overtly deny their client masturbated in the park but argued he never exposed his penis. The exposure was a necessary element of the obscenity charge.

In his confession, Storms told Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Sgt. Kevin Balser he had taken a break from his grass cutting business to sip a beer in the park, where he said he became "horny." He said he put his hands into his underwear, but he never exposed himself.

"Why do you go to the park and do this, as far as masturbating?" Balser asked Storms hours after the arrest.
"I don't know," Storms responded. "I guess a thrill."
"So it's a thrill-slash-fantasy for you?" Balser asked.
"Yes," Storms said.

The incident immediately raised speculation that Storms was a pedophile, because he masturbated with children nearby. Assistant District Attorney Seth Shute shot those allegations down outright Wednesday, saying in opening statements that detectives found no evidence of child pornography on his computer or cell phone, and there was "never a shred of evidence (showing) that Mr. Storms was masturbating to children."

Apparently attempting to explain to police why he exposed himself, Storms confessed that as a grass cutter, he carried a "pee bottle" with him, and on the day of his arrest, he sipped a beer in his van and then had to urinate. He did it in the bottle, instead of walking to a park restroom. However, Detective Donald Zanotelli testified he searched Storms' van and found no bottles with urine in them.

Following his arrest, Storms provided an impromptu press conference for local television reporters, accusing the Sheriff's Office of suggesting he was a pedophile and calling detectives "maniacal" and "coercive." But he admitted to have watched pornography that day and to putting his hands in his pants. "I apologize deeply for my inappropriate, sinful actions," he said tearfully, describing himself as "disoriented and confused."

The press conference came back to haunt Storms, as Shute used a recording of it as evidence Wednesday. "It begs the question: What is he apologizing for?" Shute said.

The exposure appeared to be incidental. Shute's key witness was Maria Soto, an Hispanic nanny who at times needed help from an interpreter to testify. She said she was taking three children to Lafreniere for a picnic when she parked in a shady spot next to Storms' minivan. She got out of her car and happened to see him doing the deed as he reclined in the driver's seat, wearing a hat that partially covered his face.

She said he saw her and immediately covered his penis with his other hand. Emmanuel, Storms' attorney, challenged her claim of seeing the penis, asking her at one point if she had ever seen a man masturbate. She became angry. "That's embarrassing for you to ask me that," Soto told him.

Storms received national media attention in 2003, for his leading his small congregation through the French Quarter during the annual gay festival, Southern Decadence, admonishing homosexuals and calling the city of New Orleans a "prostitute" for allowing the event that generates tourism dollars. A Bourbon Street merchants association at one point went to court to get a restraining order barring Storms and his followers from using bullhorns. National news media converged on New Orleans in 2003 to cover his protests.
