Rick Perry Camp’s Anti-Mormon Message - The Daily Beast

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry has publicly distanced himself from the anti-Mormon rhetoric of a prominent Baptist minister who has endorsed his presidential campaign. But new evidence suggests that Perry’s team may be quietly advancing the notion that Mitt Romney’s faith should disqualify him from the White House.

The Daily Beast has obtained a series of emails that show an influential evangelical activist with close ties to the Perry campaign stressing the political importance of “juxtaposing traditional Christianity to the false God of Mormonism,” and calling for a “clarion call to Evangelical pastors and pews” that will be “the key to the primary” for Perry."

Perry's already lost the nomination. Nice to know that he plans to go down in a dignified fashion.

Who would have predicted this?

I had a feeling Perry wouldn't get the nom, but I didn't expect him to fail this hard this fast, and I definitely didn't think Herman insane Caine to be doing this well at this point.

I am not ready to write Perry off completely yet.

These primaries happen one at a time. And some early states do have a good GOP religious turn out. In 2000 there was a whispering campaign that pretty much stopped McCain in a few states. About his daughter, her race and parentage. These current polls won't count as much as the get out the vote calls, etc.

I'd imagine any Republican contenders this time out won't try to run their 2016 chances too hard into the ground (except for Cain, who seems to really not give a damn with his crazy rhetoric, sometimes).

2016 must look fairly ripe for the GOP, considering the corporate fund-raising juggernaut in the White House will have finished out his term limit.

Rick Santorum Calls SNL Poke At His Anti-Gay Marriage Views 'Bullying'


Rick Santorum on Sunday responded to a Saturday Night Live skit that poked fun at his anti-gay marriage views.

In the comedy sketch, GOP candidates attending a presidential debate in Iowa were arranged according to poll rankings, putting Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann in a broom closet, Ron Paul in a hotel parking garage and Santorum in a gay bar in San Francisco's Castro District.

In the room with the moderator were frontrunners Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, though he had to face a wall.

Santorum, known as the field's most outspoken opponent of gay rights, and in particular marriage, is briefly seen cowering in the gay bar sandwiched between men wearing tank tops and leather vests.

Speaking to New Hampshire radio station WGIR, Santorum called the comedy skit a form of “bullying.”

“We've been hammered by the left for my standing up for the traditional family and I will continue to do so,” Santorum said. “The left, unfortunately, participates in bullying more than the right does. They say that they're tolerant, and they're anything but tolerant of people who disagree with them and support traditional values.”

Spoken like someone who's never experienced actual bullying.

it's bullying when the bullied kids stand up for themselves, apparently.

Jim Downey, registered Republican, has been SNL's main political writer for decades.
Did he write that sketch? I couldn't say for certain but I'd bet good money that he did.
So much for "the Left"...but I guess these paper-thin-skinned, supposed 'tough guy' conservatives like Santorum see anything that doesn't coddle their nutsack as "Left".

For context, recall the Democratic Primary sketches in 2008, when SNL was about the only mainstream program that called out the mainstream media for their Obama bias in those mock CNN sketches.

Or hell, those Downey-penned Gore/Bush sketches which were a lot less 'flattering' to Gore than Bush. Or the '92 Democratic debate sketch entitled "The Race To Be The Guy That Loses to Bush".

i hope they ask Cain about barbecuing Mexicans along his electric fence. and then about Anderson's hunky new boyfriend.



sadly, i won't be watching as it's my hus-bully's birthday, and we're going out to dinner with another couple of bullies.

also, as an aside, it's really fucking sick of Santorum to feign "wah, i'm being bullied" when another kid killed himself this week because he was out (worse, he had made his own "it gets better" video). Santorum's past statements -- "man on dog" -- and present positions absolutely contribute to a homophobic environment that's hell on kids.

Just caught about a half hour of the debate because there's nothing else on TV.

Perry just got fucking BURNED by Romney. Hard. Man, it was hard to watch.

Perry had what I'm sure he thought would be his "big moment" of the debate. He ferociously called out Romney for employing "illegals" (does anyone else hate it when these guys call people "illegals"? It just comes off as, frankly, racist) and then proceeded to look totally immature, like a kid in a schoolyard fight, interrupting Romney over and over as Romney was trying to defend himself. Romney eventually did defend himself, and busted on Perry for being a shitty debater and telling him that if he wants to be President he needs to learn how to let other people speak. Got 'em.

Santorum was doing the same thing earlier in the debate (interrupting Romney and looking like an idiot in the process) but nobody really cares about Santorum.

Anyway, these candidates are all ridiculous. Bachmann at one point was in the corner shrieking "ANDERSON! ANDERSON! ANDERSON! ANDERSON! ANDERSON!"

I think I'll Google Santorum to see if anyone cares about him. You all should do the same.

Romney's swatting them down like flies. First Cain, then Santorum, Gingrich and Perry. If this ends up finally being the "everyone go after Romney" debate, he's in fantastic shape.

I like it.

i agree that Romney is heads and shoulders above everyone else on that stage.

what is the right wing's problem with him? why did all of Perry's support go to Cain and not to Romney? what's the resistance? it can't just be Romney-care, can it?

i mean this seriously.
