And the media was reporting that Santorum left a bad taste in voters mouths.

Addressing supporters in Denver, Romney congratulated Santorum

Newt Gingrich, on the other hand, made a pouty face and shat his pants in protest.

I giggle every time I read a headline that Santorum is surging.
 
2012-02-08 08:33:43 AM
This is great for my favorite bleeding-heart asshole liberal political sports-team and all, but I have to ask Santorum supporters: ...why?
 
2012-02-08 08:34:42 AM
And someone tries to glitterbomb Romney again. The people who are using this as a protest method need to stop it because it looks silly. I hope they start prosecuting these things as assault.

glitterbombing is the same thing as being punched in the face. makes total sense.

THIS.

I would love to see a Santorum/Obama debate. For the lulz, of course.

I can't get my head around the total narcissism of the Teatards. They honestly believe that so many Americans share their values that the more rabidly conservative the candidate, the better chance they have.

/And then, when they lose, it'll be all about the lib'rul media and voter fraud and all that.

I'm surprised the Secret Service didn't do anything. The glitter bombing is not helping anyone but the attention whore who is doing it.

I don't see how this is good for the GOP. How did Paul do? Is he going to sweep the next few states next?
 
2012-02-08 08:41:55 AM
This Santorum isn't going anywhere, Romney is going to cork it with his slick tongue and wit.
 
2012-02-08 08:42:29 AM
If you think the guy who collects public money for his own healthcare, then goes out and tells sick people they need to pay market prices for drugs because some "people are willing to pay $900 for an iPad," fine, nominate him... I'll do everything I can to see that this asshat has zero chance of getting elected.

The GOP- we're for smaller government, except when it means we get to decide what's right for you in your doctors office and your bedroom.

He'd better catch up, Santorum is leading in states won.

After Karen Handel quit in a storm of butthurt, I didn't think I could feel any more yummy, yummy Schadenfreude. Thanks, Teatards, for coming through for me. Hey, Mittens, sucks to be you!

My wife keeps telling me to shut up every time I see a story like this and I say "ass juice 2012" she still won't forgive me for telling her to google santorum.

I do have to admit, that if this gets to a brokered convention, and Palin swoops in as the " savior who can unite the party," that she her party perfectly.

I'm reminded of the insular, vanguardist paranoia of Trotskyite and Leninist groups. They think they're the true representatives of "the people", and the only reason tens of millions haven't fallen in step behind them and elevated them to power is because of $insert_enemy_here.

Ultimately, they all share a tendency to seek power over others and throw tantrums when they don't get it.

Of course that's how it's going to go. And then Huntsman wins on Super Tuesday, even though he quit.

I can understand people being duped into thinking Gingrich is an intellectual, but why on Earth would anyone ever vote for Rick Santorum? It boggles the mind.

Santurum is a big government conservative and a complete idiot but he doesn't collect public money for his own healthcare.

Santorum as the GOP candidate would be too good to be true...

Because that's how bad the GOP field is. Pawlenty must be kicking himself - if he had stayed the course he could have been the frontrunner right now.
 
2012-02-08 08:57:49 AM
I like that most people didn't bother to vote (1% in one state, 6% in another). Clearly the preferred candidate is "none of the above".

Actually, Santorum as an elected official who provided a service to the taxpayers receives public health. This is different than the democrat plan which would have everyone receiving public health just because they exist.

There's a difference between doing a job and being compensated for it and just getting something for free.

Watching the late news as they showed the results in Minnesota:

Santorum 44%
Paul 27%
Romney 16%

News reader: and Romney finishes second...

It's like Paul doesn't even exist.
 
2012-02-08 09:01:54 AM
Santorum won every stingle county in Missouri and had more than twice Romney's vote total
Romney came in a distant third well behind RON PAUL in Minnisota.

Prediction: The media will not discuss just how bad Romney lost in these three races. It is understandable that these matter less than Florida but they should matter a lot more than Nevada because 1) Missouri and Colorado are actual swing states and 2) all three have at least twice the electoral votes of Nevada and 3) combined, these three states represent more votes than Florida (although Minnisota is probably a lock for the Democrats in November, especially this year.)
 
2012-02-08 09:05:16 AM
Brokered convention. I can has?
 
2012-02-08 09:05:30 AM
I really want Gingrich's reaction to this.

Dude's got a massive ego, I'm sure he's not equipped to deal with the fact that the GOP is touting him as the obvious conservative alternative to Romney, only to drop him as soon as the numbers turn against him. Even though it's happened to every other GOP candidate so far.

Of course, he's not out yet (these wins are largely symbolic, and Gingrich wasn't even on all the ballots), but it is inevitable.

They're just caucuses, they don't represent the will of the voters, plus weather was bad which meant only the zealots made it out to the polls. Besides, Romney won them all in 2008 and it meant nothing because he lost the primary.

If I learned anything this year about the primaries, its that the media doesnt know jack shiat about them. I have followed it cautiously this year, and the whole damn circus practically guaranteed a Romney massacre up until now. Santorum was said to be licking his wounds and trying to save face for the 2016 elections.

Then I wake up and headline news "Santorum takes 3 states and a sorta nomination".

/Like the rich asshat so out of touch with America is gonna have a chance against Obama

I would guess that there was low voter turn out and the prop 8 decision had a disproportional get 'out the vote' effect for religious fundamentalists, skewing the results.

But sadly, we can't have nice things like a public option where we all pay one entity and they pay for the services. No, we need this system that makes the middlemen rich for doing a superfluous job.

But you didn't want to hear that, you're one of the new derp-on-demand trolls, aren't you?

There's a difference between doing a job and being compensated for it and just getting something for free.

Yep, carry on you worthless wankstain.
