By the time the RNC comes around he'll be bleating about how purity can only be assured by installing monitor chips in the brains of people who enjoy Jack Donaghy ironically and demanding that tampons be sold only by prescription, followed by his campaign promise to change the $10 bill to a photo of Reagan and Jesus double-teaming a crying Janeane Garofalo.

culebra: WhyteRaven74: culebra: "Yep. Still Romney"-which is the least exciting thing in the world.

Romney has been losing ground in a few states in the polls. And six weeks ago Santorum had pretty much zero chance of winning anything anywhere.

And around that time it was Newt Gingrich that was supposed to win the nomination, according to the polls. Before that it was the other insane GOP hopeful (not that one, the other one), and before that someone else not named Romney.

Polls are nice, but they aren't predictions. They reflect current attitudes, which is why Newt was on top (bad mental image) after having some good showings. Once the primaries swing back into a part of the country where people will vote for him, Romney will start winning again and the polls will reflect it.

The social conservative wing of the GOP may be in denial about Romney's impending win, but that doesn't mean I have to be. And yeah, I could be horribly wrong. These are just my interpretations.


Look. I know the GOP will come to whatever remaining senses they have and nominate Romney. But don't you dare take away my dream of seeing Obama debate Santorum.

Obama: I believe women are capable, intelligent people who should have the same opportunities as men.
Santorum: The President doesn't have his biblical theology right. Women are subservient accessories to a man's existence.

Obama: I will continue to work to make sure Iran poses no threat to the world.

I had a professor in my east coast liberal elitist university who was a hard core conservative. Named as an Ambassador under Ronald Reagan, a big wig in the GOP's intellectual elite (this was in the 90s, when such a thing existed*).

He used to sharpen his teeth on teenage liberals. You want to defend Clinton's* policies to him, you needed to come with a good argument. I watched this guy tear into people who couldn't defend his argument.

One of my friends wrote his final paper praising Jimmy Carter and the Camp David Accords. He did some meticulous research, backed up every single one of his arguments with citations and facts- and this was long before Wikipedia*.

He got an A+ on that paper. The professor read part of it out loud to the class, praising his research and his arguments, and then said it was one of the most infuriating things he had ever written.

You want that guy to teach college courses? Great. Give me a dozen of them. But I have a feeling that's not what Santorum means.

Quite a few but still a minority. Conservatism and tardism are not mutually inclusive. Imagine a venn diagram where the circles nearly overlap.

So, basically you're talking about people from a noticeably thin crescent-shape, that about right?

Here's the other thing that nobody ever seems to mention when this comes up: even if they have the ability, conservatives don't want to teach.

Conservatives want to go out and make oodles and oodles of cash so they can build a 20-foot sign on their enormous lawn that reads, in letters made of gold and caviar, "fark you I got mine." What they do not want to do is toil their whole lives away in a boring, low-paid, unglamorous and kind of unmanly profession like teaching college.

Where is Rick Santorum going to come up with this legion of bible thumping, Rush Limbaugh listening effete intellectuals who talk like William F. Buckley and are clamoring at the gates of academia? He's not. Rick Santorum is an idiot.

4. Gut Social Security. After all grandma and grandpa are close to death anyway after we took the medicare away.
5. Tax the poor to pay for the wars until they can't even afford food and decent shelter. DEATH DEATH DEATH.
6. Allow speculators to pump the price of Gasoline and heating fuel to outrageous prices. More people die.
7. Close the FDA and EPA after all the free market can decide who's products kill the least amount of people.

Now that all those people have died we can make government smaller because there are

I wish we had Carlin around for this election. His bits about Catholics were always my favorite.

On a similar note, someone should troll Santorum's campaign by switching the music at his next function to Zappa's Catholic Girls.

If you are to be eligible for federal funds, you'll have to provide an equal number of conservative professors as liberal professors.

Sounds like someone forgot that we're supposed to have the federal department of education, along with the fairness doctrine.

This would increase government control over the people.

I actually know a conservative history professor. Back when I met him and he was in school he would talk about how unfair it was that he was taxed for being a high achiever. After he mooched off of his wife to pay for his schooling he left her and his son for a student. He hasn't even seen his son for five years.

He's very Gingrichian.

IronTom: There should be a certain large percentage of teachers at each school that actually loves America.


What does it mean to love America? Why do you have to be conservative in order to love America? Does loving America mean that you're not allowed to criticize some of the atrocities they've committed? Should they just be ignored?

There are conservative universities, if a young man or woman desires that sort of education. Who is Santorum to decide whether or not a professor is "conservative" enough.

That sounds an awful lot like brainwashing to me. Something fascist or totalitarian states do.

The man is a reactionary crypto-fascist. He has no trace of the legacy of Edmund Burke or even Russell Kirk anywhere in his body.

That does not mean I automatically love anyone who wraps themselves in an American flag, proclaims how much THEIRS is the right way to love America and any other way is obviously hating America, and then proceeds to run on a platform of denying equality before the law, liberty, and justice (which is pretty much describes the entire group of modern day Republican candidates but especially Santorum and Gingrich).
