It would be so hilarious if the economy continued to improve through November and Santorum was the Republican nominee and was mostly arguing social issues.

Wow, who ARE these Neanderthals??

Quote:
Appearing of MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today, Foster Friess, the main donor to the Super PAC backing Rick Santorum’s presidential bid, dismissed the controversy surrounding President Obama’s new birth control rule by suggesting that women should just keep their legs shut. Asked if he worried that Santorum’s Puritanical views on sex and social issues could hurt the candidate in the general election, Friess offered a more home-spun family planning scheme:

FRIESS: On this contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so inexpensive. You know, back in my days, they used Baer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.

Just a certain kind of old white guy who came of age in the 50s and isn't much in touch with current social culture, tends to refer to women as "gals" and "broads" and effects a characteristic fake-jovial manner to soften his paternalism. I've known quite a few...


ETA -- haha, I just remembered something. Didn't Palin herself call Santorum a "knuckle-dragging Neanderthal" last time around?

so seems like the GOP doesn't want women to vote for them this time around?

What a circus! As long as none of these clowns get anywhere near the White House I guess it's fine entertainment.

That is the fear that lurks in the back of my mind.

It is entertaining to see this idiocy unfold, yes, but it's also incredibly depressing and makes me want to do this on a constant basis: .

Gotta say I was pretty shocked to discover these were the legitimate views of legitimate presidential candidates. I always thought the democrats/republicans divide was not too dissimilar to the labor/liberal divide over here: just two parties with some contrasting ideologies but no extreme or gob-smackingly ignorant views. But I am slowly learning that this is not the case in the States. It's quite scary to know that some of these GOP nominees have such large followings and could perceivably win the next election.

It is.

But see, to those supporting these candidates, they look at these guys and state that these people are promoting a return to "good, Christian family values", unlike those heathen lefties. So the followers look past all the nutty stuff because of that.

The religious right still has a hold here in the States. A small one, perhaps, but it still exists, and we still have people who think your belief systems are an automatic indicator of whether or not you'll be a good president.
