"America" - 1 shot
"God" - 1 shot
"Freedom" - 2 shots
"War on Terror" - 2 shots
erroneously blame something on Obama - 2 shots
Sarah Palin talks - 3 shots
someone praises G.W. Bush - 4 shots
someone lovingly reminisces about the Gipper - 4 shots

Oooh, any time someone new walks onstage wearing an American Flag pin, take a shot.

Why opt for journalists on such an important night? May I instead suggest the crack election team of Shultz, Maddow, O'Donnell, Sharpton and Matthews- covering the results from all angles: from the "Give us our orders, Mr. President" left to the "I am a socialist" left.

I really hope you will join us in the drinking game, numberman.

I also hope that some other talking head will report a tingle in their legs over our boy Newt.

So I had a surgical procedure done today and I'm lying on the couch woozy on pretty good drugs. First time I've started paying attention to these caucuses in weeks.

Newt called Mitt a liar. Santorum called Ron Paul "disgusting". Rick Perry thinks the 2012 election is like landing in Normandy on D-Day. Michele Bachmann is predicting we'll see a miracle tonight (what, she'll come in second last?).

This is amazing. Batshit crazy.

I know Ron Paul's been quite popular in my town. Hell, the other day at work some guy came into my store asking if there were any Ron Paul people in the mall, like with booths and that sort of thing...and I kid you not, he was decked out in Uncle Sam type gear, top hat and coat with the stars and stripes, the works, with a Ron Paul button on the hat and a Tea Party shirt on to boot. And I've had a few people coming in asking about his books.

But who's going to win here tonight, who the hell knows, really? I'm horrible at predicting such things.

Couple responses from the last thread's posts:

I'm still completely and totally mystified to this day as to why that was such a big deal, why that was supposed to be a "campaign-ending action".

You know, I think that's looking like a better and better idea with each passing day.

You have absolutely NO idea just how angry I got when I heard that. My jaw literally dropped and I wanted to seriously punch the shit out of whoever was making the cheering sounds. All I could think of at that moment was my mom, who was out visiting her deathly sick sister at that time (who has since sadly passed away), and I thought back to my dad being sick, and the struggles in both instances to try and pay for their care, and...man. It truly pissed me off. If anyone on that stage had any sort of balls, they would've told those idiots to shut the hell up right then and there.

But nothing. Just stammered backpedaling or silence. That just further proved why I find the Republican attitude so deeply repugnant.

Indeed. If only they were to meet my family, they'd realize that all their stereotypes about such an issue can be squashed in two seconds flat. They wouldn't know what to do with themselves then.

On a significantly lighter note, Tiger Edge, I love your title for the thread .

a nice reminder that ordinary Americans and the freak show of the GOP Primaries are two very, very different things, even in Iowa:

*Pumps fist in the air* YEAH! That video rocks. *Swells with Iowan pride*

"Next time you 'fly over', wave to us. We'll wave back. We're nice" .

Thanks for sharing that, Irvine, I really enjoyed seeing that.

the one Yolland started last Sept:

than this title is not appropriate, it is more like a one off reply

this GOP nomination process, will go on for a few months,
there should be a thread with an appropriate title

From BVS in the previous thread:

Quote:
Or it doesn't really matter who she [Kelly Clarkson] endorsed, what does matter is how she made the endorsement. She caused a tiny bit of controversy and made news, that in turn reminded people she's still around and has a new album.
Nothing like inadvertent promotion.
