Democratic Party Nominee 2012-Who Will It Be?

Is President Obama a given or will he face a challenger?

Conservatives, by their very nature, aren't usually that skilled in the humour department

Is that poster supposed to be your counter argument?

How many nationally-known, popular comedians can you name who are actually rather conservative or who perform acts that show conservative values in a positive light? Hint: Larry the Cable Guy is an act and actually doesn't have a ridiculous accent when he's off-mic. That's a paragraph with no hint of sarcasm, I'd love to know. I'm a big standup fan and the only guy who comes close for me is Dennis Miller.

And as far as that poster, I honestly think you are far more deft than to fall into the GOP marketing ploy that liberals are the elites trying to give welfare to their poor cousins and conservatives in Congress who are multimillionaires actually give a damn for the average working man.

How many houses does John Mccain own, again? Eight?

Ron Paul would easily beat Obama, but I'd wager the War Party won't select him.

Obama is basically a crap president. Soon as he comes up against serious opposition, he's toast, but the oligarchy still favour him, for reasons best known to themselves. Probably something to do with screwing the middle and working class taxpayers and keeping the Wall Street oligarchy in clover - it usually is.

My dream ticket is Paul-Kucinich - oh well, I can dream, can't I.

Here is my ten point policy prescription for the US:

Withdraw from Iraq - immediately.
Cease funding Israel - immediately.
Withdraw from Afghanistan, on a phased basis
Withdraw US funding from the World Bank/IMF.
Reduce taxes on the middle class - immediately.
Arrest ten multi-millionaire tax evaders and detain them in Gitmo indefinitely. (The rest will learn their lesson, believe me.)
Cut public sector wages by 20%, overnight.
Bring the troops home.
Bring the jobs home.
Re-establish the gold standard.
Screw China, forgive Europe and punish Russia.

Unfortunately, America, like Europe, is run by a of spivs, gimps, and servile cowards, in hock to the bankers, so none of the above will be implemented. It should, though. We all know it.

Obama will be the Democrat nominee,
the only thing that would change that would be if his real birth certificate surfaced.

Don Rickles on Dean Martin Roasts : Sammy Davis Jr - YouTube


Political correctness has killed humor. Remember this? Comedian Fined $15K For Insulting Lesbian Couple

Don Rickles probably isn't even politically conservative but today everybody except white Christian males and conservative women/minorities are in the off-limits, protected, victims of Western culture category.

There is great conservative humor in the writings of Jonah Goldberg, Greg Gutfeld, Ann Coulter and Mark Steyn. But if you can only laugh at what you've been conditioned to laugh at (i.e. the Daily Show and Colbert crowds) you are not going to "get the joke" of the absurdity of much of the Left.

What's left for conservative comics other than the self-deprecating humor of Larry the cable guy or Jeff Foxworthy? Is there a sitcom with a witty, conservative wag? Now, how many have a snarky, gay one?

Why don't you stop with the GOP is anti-science canard. It's not only terribly incorrect but, um... elitist.

Why don't you stop with the, "Anyone who rips the GOP must be an elitist" bullshit?

ok. some of your ideas are good. But regarding public sector wages, why is it always a forgone conclusion they are too high? Yes, they are higher in many cases than private sector wages but there are two things to consider: 1) maybe private sector wages are too low? and.. 2) on average, public sector jobs are jobs that require higher levels of education unlike in the private sector that is becoming increasingly dominated by low skilled service jobs. In any event, a race to the bottom won't help the middle class. We need to protect what's left of our middle class.

It's incorrect? OK, then please tell us who in your tea party crowd has a respect and understanding of science? I haven't seen ONE.

Kucinich would be a dream, I wanted him to be the Democratic candidate back in the last presidential election. Seems like a thoroughly decent individual.
