AverageAmericanGuy: It doesn't matter. Santorum can't win against Obama. Romney can't win against Obama. Huntsman could win against Obama, but he's no longer around.The only hope the Republicans have is Gingrich, but realistically there really isn't any hope for the Republicans this November.
Three Crooked Squirrels: The fact that a significant portion of America would even consider this guy boggles my mind.[images3.wikia.nocookie.net image 160x120]
I_C_Weener: If you want conservative but not womanizing.
Diogenes: And just when you think he couldn't get any nuttier, now he's against prenatal screening. Not to hit below the belt or anything, but someone whose wife had a miscarriage and has a daughter with a fatal genetic disorder, I would think, would feel differently.
Diogenes: I_C_Weener: If you want conservative but not womanizing.He has other woman problems.
Code_Archeologist: You put the penis in, wait up to nine months and a surprise pops out, YAY!
Backwards Cornfield Races: Can we please please PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEPLEASE PLEASE PLASE stop talking about the election until august when it will actually matter?/oh wait, we need ratingscarry on(yes I realize there's a nomination process, but as a registered independent I do NOT give a shiat)
Backwards Cornfield Races: (yes I realize there's a nomination process, but as a registered independent I do NOT give a shiat)
Aarontology: SO the GOP is going to run on a "Let's turn America into Iran, but with Jesus" platform.OK. Good luck with that.
Aarontology: Backwards Cornfield Races: (yes I realize there's a nomination process, but as a registered independent I do NOT give a shiat)Which is what politicians hope and pray for. That by the time the actual election rolls around, people will have forgotten all the crazy shiat they said and advocated in the primaries because they didn't give a shiat.
Philip Francis Queeg: Earlier today Trump threatened to run if Santorum get's the nomination.I can't imagine what am Obama/Santorum/Trump debate would be like.
DarnoKonrad: That's been their platform since the mid 70s. And it's been somewhat successful.
Backwards Cornfield Races: Which is why I'm voting for someone that is honest about their insanity. Vermin Supreme
Karac: I'd be willing to bet money that Santorum continues saying this same "gays are evil, sex without the sole intent of procreation is evil, women can't make their own decisions" shiat right up until and past the election. The only question is how much "Muslims are evil" he puts into the mix.

Macinfarker: I called the Palin fiasco far in advance, and nailed every bit of their strategy.So now I will predict their strategy on this one.The GOP is ranking up the discord around the party to get the constituency frustrated at the lack of cohesive planning. Then at the right moment this year, probably Summer, they will pull a surprise candidate out of the hat that will "bridge the gaps," unite the party, resulting in a "fired up" constituency. They'll have all the marketing lined up before hand, and launch the entire thing in a media blitz akin to the Palin announcement (anyone else find it odd that the Palin "smootchy" bumper stickers were out the very next day?). The Santorum push is meant to keep the fringe 'nutters in the voting pool.And it will be a close election...had they not done this with Palin, it wouldn't have been even as close as it was. The GOP knows exactly what they are doing.
rcantley: I know Romney is a slimy prick who seems like he was built from a do-it-yourself politician kit.But Christ, it scares me that a significant portion of the population looks at a man as genuinely stupid as Santorum and thinks, I'd go with this guy.

I_C_Weener: In some ways the primaries hurt the Republicans with how petty they've been. In another, they might help. By the time Romney is nominated, everything bad to say about him will have been said and Republicans will no longer care....and Democrats will barely care as they will have their own version of him in Obama. The independents (or whatever you want to call that middle ground) will vote based on two things 1) perception of which one is the most personable, and 2) the economy. If there is war or significant concern internationally, that might add a 3rd. But I doubt it at this point.
Code_Archeologist: Just remember, the people voting in the Republican primary are not actually sane.
