jasimo: This looks/smells/walks/etc. like a plan by Santorum/his handlers to energize the conservative base who hate the 'lamestream media' and think the NYT is one step away from the The Communist Manifesto.

They're already fundraising around the incident and Santorum has cute little catchphrases at the ready, like "If you haven't cursed at a NYT reporter you're not a real Republican."

Not a bad move, really.



Agreed. Although 2012 is looking to be the year that energizing the Republican base = losing the general.
 
2012-03-26 01:08:55 PM  
I am guessing Santorum will lose the convention and team up with Palin to run a third party campaign. This will split the (R) vote between the bug shiat insane crowd and the other 10%.

Come November, this will be a good thing.

I would love to see Santorum try and throw a punch. Or throw a football.

Not going to happen. The Bible doesn't allow that. "And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you." -- Leviticus 11:7-8

Also according to Leviticus, the gheys are bad. Oh, and if you're sweater vest is wool but your button-down shirt is cotton, that's just as bad as the ghey thing.

After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18"Are you so dull?" he asked. "Don't you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him 'unclean'? 19For it doesn't go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body."

Mark 7:17-19

Since we're on the subject anyway, does the same idea from Mark 7:17-19 apply to, say, anally inserted semen? "Nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him 'unclean.'" After all, it doesn't go into his heart, but into his rectal cavity. Eventually it comes out of his body in the form of santorum. Or did Jesus abolish only the law's dietary restrictions?


The Catholic preaching against homosexuality is largely the result of Paul. Jesus didn't seem to care too much. That said, I think what you said is a misinterpretation of the passage. Having semen in the butt doesn't make a man unclean. How it got there would though, according to Paul at least.

Fear not citizen, we've got this!

Casey beat Santorum by 708,206 votes or 17.4 percentage points, the most lopsided victory for a Democratic Senate candidate in history and the widest margin of any of the 2006 Senate contests.

The results were:

Robert P. Casey Jr.: 58.7% - 2,392,984 votes
Rick Santorum: 41.3% - 1,684,778 votes

It got there via an anally inserted penis, which was also something from the outside of his body, and therefore not something which could make a man unclean. Jeez.

I am no Santorum supporter, but this is bullshiat. He did not mean that Romney was the worst Republican in the country. He was clearly saying that in a general election there would be no incentive for the Republican base to support Romney because his policies resemble Obama's.

cameroncrazy1984: urbangirl: i'm no fan of santorum but he's right on this one. big difference between saying "the worst republican in america to put up against barack obama" and "the worst republican in america".

What is the big difference? If he isn't the worst republican in america, why is he the worst republican to put up against Obama?


Especially since he also said, "Pick any other Republican in the country." So any Republican is preferable to Romney. He might not have meant he's the worst, but that's the essence of his comment.

"There's one candidate who's uniquely disqualified to make the case. That's the reason I'm here and he's not," Santorum told reporters outside the Supreme Court as protesters behind him chanted, "Health care is a right."

"This is the most important issue in this election," he said.

While Romney says he would fight to repeal Obama's health care law, Santorum says Romney essentially is disqualified because he put in place a similar law in Massachusetts when he was governor, including a requirement that all residents buy health insurance.


and

"Pick any other Republican in the country," Mr. Santorum told supporters here. "He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama. Why would Wisconsin want to vote for someone like that?"


Link (pops)

So, yeah: he wasn't saying he's the worst in the nation, he's saying that if you want to get rid of 'Obamacare' you're backing the wrong horse since Romney did pretty much the same thing in Massachusetts. Mind you, "Public polls, however, suggest that the vast majority of Massachusetts residents support the state health care system, which Romney signed into law in 2006."

Also, "This was a disaster in Massachusetts," Santorum said.

Disaster my ass. Massachusetts folks like it a bunch, and when I lived there for six months I damn sure took advantage of it (no job-related healthcare, but managed to get subsidized meds without which I would have been screwed).

Bigdogdaddy: I remember George Herbert Walker Bush call Reagan's trickle down plan "voodoo economics" and then praise him after he got the vice presidency.


I've said it before and will again...Santorum or Gingrich would be thrilled to no end to get picked up as the VP candidate by Rmoney. Santorum is emerging as the far better choice, as he is polling waaaaaayyy ahead of Gingrich. With him on the ticket the GOP would be pretty well united and could concentrate on attacking the President.

Instead of hinting that he's ready to play second fiddle, though, Santorum keeps ratchetting up the crazy. This must leave Romney wondering if he can offer the VP without damaging himself.

I'm just imagining Obama sitting back in a chair, reading Sun Tsu, watching Santorum and Romney, and chuckling.

Romney and Santorum have walked right into Obama's Xanatos gambit, and there's no way they can recover at this point. It's not just incumbent advantage, these clowns are practically doing ALL Obama's campaigning work for him.

From what I understand, mathematically, it's Romney FTW unless the convention craters. Santorum would have to win outside the South and Midwest to take it, and that's not going to happen. So really, stuff like this is nothing but sweet, sweet schadenfreude.

HMS_Blinkin: I am now actually curious as to how (and whether) this will effect his standing with his hyper-evangelical base.


My experience with people of that persuasion is that they aren't universally offended by adult language, at least not younger generations (older generations, even with non-evangelicals, are less tolerant of impolite language).

He didn't use God's name in vain and it wasn't profanity of a sexual nature. He'll probably be fine.

Rann Xerox: PonceAlyosha: Rann Xerox: Santorum reminds me of the character Jorge de Burgos, a monk in the movie "The Name of the Rose." Burgos believed that laughter and other forms of earthly happiness were the instruments of the devil and thus could turn man away from God and into the hands of evil.

That movie was pretty sweet, but the book is a lot better.

Thanks. I will request it from my local library. :)


I'd also recommend Foucault's Pendulum as a more interesting and intelligent example of the secret society conspiracy thriller. Just beware that after the success of The Name of the Rose, Eco decided to make the first chapters of his books as inaccessible as possible to discourage casual readers. So the opening of Foucault's Pendulum doesn't actually make sense unless you've already read the whole book through once.

There's theological discussions as to whether Paul was a self-hating homosexual. His rants seem to support this theory.
Personally, I think Paul was a 1st century PT Barnum.

Um, guys, did you even check the link? It was out of context. I don't think Santorum ever outright said that Mitt Romney is the worst Republican, period, just that he's the worst for a particular something or other depending on the speech. Then again, I think the reporter was trolling him, seeing as how he practically said, "You seem upset."

Really, with all the idiotic, downright scary shiat that Santorum says, I don't think out of context is even necessary. There's already PLENTY of material to work with.

If only reporters used an Etch-a-Sketch to quote him, then he could shake it and make it all go away.

I remember NBC Nightly News running an unedited clip of Tom Harkin saying "bullshiat" on the campaign trail. I guess that would have to be '92.

If this had been Obama, the Republicans would be saying he doesn't have the temperament to be president, can't stay calm under pressure, if he can't handle himself with a NY Times reporter what would he do against Ahmadinejad, etc.

Diogenes: Here's a wacky idea -- be more careful with your words in the first place, if you're afraid they'll be used against you. Or exercise "selective expression."

Or you will be called to account for those words. Wouldn't you rather hit the target the first time and not have to make hollow excuses?

It's a campaign, not a coronation.


Its because of statements like this you can never become President.

And your fondness for members of the same gender, but mostly because of statements like this.
