If Santorum becomes the nominee, I will have lost whatever faith I have in humanity.

Great! Bye .

Poor Michele. Oh, poor Michele *Tries to hide her smirk*.

Quote:
She became known for a series of misstatements and historical errors, including suggesting the first battle of the Revolutionary War was fought in New Hampshire, not Massachusetts, warning about the dangers of the Soviet Union, which hasn’t existed for 20 years, contending that a vaccine used to combat human papillomavirus causes mental retardation, and referring to the U.S. embassy in Iran, which has been closed for more than 30 years.
The fact that someone who thinks like this had any sort of shot at the presidency should really terrify way more people than it currently does.

And ditto what BoMac said about Santorum. Rush is apparently liking him now? Well, there's a meeting of the minds!

i am stupified that rick santorum has a reasonable chance to be the republican nominee for president.

honestly... rick santorum? the man who's name is synonymous with fecal mater and anal lube? an absolute bigot of the highest order? really?

baffling.

Unfortunately I don't find it all that baffling. This term has brought the worse out of the Republican party.

why? it's only a commentary on the (aging, dying) Republican base, and it means Obama will win, like, 49 states.

Gingrich does not need any money or staff, all he needs is a plane ticket and a suitcase. He will keep showing up at debates and other public events to get the free exposure and coverage. That is how he rolls.

I really think if he could tilt this to Santorum, he would. He is petty.
His ego is now out in front of his libido.

Agreed, and proof positive he never had the temperament for POTUS.

And here we have Ron Paul:

a) not having the discernment he was being punked and
b) being paranoid over a gay conspiracy.

you establishment Republican types really do hate him because he's against perpetual war in the Middle East, don't you.

I'd like a few more to quickly drop out so all that is left are Romney v Paul v one of the two remaining Christian Crazies, and I'd like them to properly have at it. I'd like to see their three ideologies properly pushed and promoted and challenged - but it won't happen.

Just to note in passing as another example of the double standards of the liberal left, this type of comment wouldn't be tolerated here or elsewhere if it was made by a right-winger about a middle aged female politician.

Santorum’s voting record shows that he embraced George Bush–style “big-government conservatism.” For example, he supported the Medicare prescription-drug benefit and No Child Left Behind.

He never met an earmark that he didn’t like. In fact, it wasn’t just earmarks for his own state that he favored, which might be forgiven as pure electoral pragmatism, but earmarks for everyone, including the notorious “Bridge to Nowhere.” The quintessential Washington insider, he worked closely with Tom DeLay to set up the “K Street Project,” linking lobbyists with the GOP leadership.

He voted against NAFTA and has long opposed free trade. He backed higher tariffs on everything from steel to honey. He still supports an industrial policy with the government tilting the playing field toward manufacturing industries and picking winners and losers.

The truth is Rick Santorum is so left on the issues that matter he makes even Mitt Romney look like a red meat conservative. Be very afraid, Republican America. This is how bad things are.

Just to note in passing, during the 2008 elections I remember on various occasions specific posters referring to HRC as a bitch, a termagant, a hag, a witch, and then there were the continuous shrill hysterics and weirdly fetishism-tinged rants of one particular individual that went on for months. Though I don't recall the f-word specifically being invoked, if that's the operative measure here.

Personally I'm content just to label Newt Gingrich a grandiose, petty, imperious windbag with a crackpot streak a mile wide. Whether he also happens to be a decently competent flirt one-on-one when he wants to be, I'd have no idea.

Newt is a noted womanizer, has been married three times, and was carrying on an affair during the Lewinsky scandal in 1998 and 1999.

don't know of any middle-aged female politicians guilty of the same.

looking back, my comment probably was inappropriate. but to view Gingrich's personal history -- and political crusades, against woman and gay people -- as equivalent to any run-of-the-mill female politician, or against HRC in particular, isn't quite accurate.

it was also, in my mind at least, more of a commentary on his overall asshole personality and not quite as much on his girth, looks, lack of style, or bad haircut.

(all of which a female politician would have long since gotten her gays to correct as she'd be acutely aware that she's always being judged on her pantsuits and hairstyles)

Well Newt allegedly said that his first wife, the one who had cancer when he divorced her (whatever the real story about that is), wasn't young enough or pretty enough to be First Lady. Apparently he has an inflated sense of his own attractiveness Does he meet the attractiveness requirements for President, or do those only exist for females and/or First Ladies?
