I can't imagine how that's a positive.

And wow, you know of younger people who support him? That's frightening. I'm glad that I don't know anyone who thinks he's anything but horrible.

I don't know of anyone supporting him - thankfully - but CNN was interviewing voters and some were about my age. It was sad to see that.

Oooh, more reason to find them bothersome!

I don't know. I agree, it always strikes me extremely odd to see that, too. It's bad enough when there's people in older age groups thinking like Santorum, to imagine teenagers or people in their 20s thinking like him is just beyond creepy and unsettling.

I don't know anyone personally of any age that supports Santorum, thank god. As I said earlier, it's all Ron Paul if anyone up here.

No kidding. I've been hearing the campaign ads and am sighing already. It's gonna be a loooooooooooong year.

I've been hearing a ton of Rick Perry commercials the last couple months on the radio in the area for some reason. Apparently they don't seem to have done much good for him.

We also carry a "NO-bama" 2012 calendar where I work, with a tagline about how January of next year is "real change we can believe in". Gag. Nobody's brought it yet, though.

There was the one woman who looked to be in her late 20s who said "I am voting for him because he stands for family values and I have a family."

Ugh again. CNN is reporting Santorum is ahead with most of the votes in.

I can't believe I live in the same country as his supporters.

I saw that. What are people like that afraid of?

I know what it is. They have irrational fears of gay people. They see them as pedophiles (harsh, but true) and they have this fear that they'll kidnap their children.

Really, America? Really?

Better. They've said if the pace holds, they're expected to have 120,000 turnout, possibly even a little higher, which would be a GOP record.

Why do these people show up in hordes against Mitt?

I mean, yes, he talks out of both sides of his mouth, he changes directions like a fart in the wind and is as principled as a used car salesman, but at least he comes across as sane. I guess that's not a requirement for the GOP.

Ugh, I hate that soundbite cliche. What the frell does that even mean? Like you can't instill your own values in your family no matter who is president? "I have to vote for him, because the other guy hates families and if he becomes president, my family will burst into flames!!!"

That's what I heard from both John King on CNN and Chuck Todd on MSNBC, and their fancy magic Smartboards
