freeperville is going nuts.

I'm honestly sorry to hear that his daughter is sick, and sincerely hope for a speedy recovery. But damn, did this country just dodge a bullet.

netweavr: Weaver95: 'shining city on the hill'.

what weird catch phrases evangelicals have...

If the city is on a hill, then it is highly-susceptible to siege tactics. Starve the residents.


Not necessarily. The city gets a bonus to archery.

bobbette: Weaver95: there's that 'american exceptionalism' thing again. WTF man....what does that even mean?

It's the belief that America because of its history and culture is the most special and unique and country ever, and (in recent development) normal rules and standards for nations don't apply, because FREEDOM. U-S-A U-S-A


Heh.

I just finished reading Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. Guess how much any reference to AE enrages me right now?

/someone needs to write a canuck equivalent of that book
 
2012-04-10 02:41:04 PM
So did he blame it on the Media or the Devil? Because it certainly couldn't have been his regressive, insane policy platforms...


Oh well... Only three turds left in the GOP bowl, now.

FTFA: GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign, sources say, and has called Mitt Romney. Santorum is speaking in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

You know who else was southern and surrendered at Gettysburg?

/well after
//but, still....I don't think he knows what happened there.

Weaver95: meat0918: make me some tea: Weaver95: the freepers are screaming like a pack of Nazgul right now.

Holy hell, they really seem to hate Romney as much as they hate Obama. A lot of em are gonna sit this one out from the looks of it.

Romney is a Massachusetts Republican, which is a Blue Dog Democrat in many Republican strongholds.

That, and Mormon is just about as much an "other" as "Kenyan".

doesn't matter. the GOP rank and file will STFU, wipe their brains clean and vote for Romney. they'll forget they voted against Romney, they'll do what the party orders them to do.


I dunno. I come from a family of evangelical Christians, and I think their heads all just exploded. They do NOT like Mormons. They think they're a cult, false religion, etc. I honestly don't know what they'll do now. (my dad, for example, will not vote for a Mormon).

"In fact, I'm pretty confident I didn't say black. What I think - I started to say a word and then sort of changed and it sort of - blah - mumbled it and sort of changed my thought.

Weaver95: there's that 'american exceptionalism' thing again. WTF man....what does that even mean?


it's a run around separation of religion and state and a dog whistle.

the idea is God wanted the infallible, down home, white, puritan founding fathers (who were not religious, owned Korans and farked their slaves out of wedlock) to create a new Zion (Hebrew for penis), a shining city on the hill and light onto the nations showing the heathens the true path of being rich, white, and farking the poor
 
2012-04-10 02:42:27 PM
damn it, rick. you can't leave. you put the fun in the primary campaign. you were the heart and frothy soul. mitt is such a magical mormon without the drive...the passion that only two sweaty lumberjacks in love can understand.

I'll miss you, you nut-job. all the best...

I'm in.

AnnoyingKidNextDoor: Depends how militant the Tea Party gets, but I can't help but wonder if he's doing this to rise up Romney's shortlist for VP. I mean who else is there for Pete's sake?


Depends on what Romney's looking for. One thing the GOP isn't short on is bland white smiling people. They (Pawlenty being the front-runner in this category with John Thune, Mitch Daniels, and a hundred others) might actually be capable of making Romney appear interesting by comparison.

I'm not expecting him to try 'interesting' in the VP race. That was where McCain crashed.

How's his pirouette?
 
2012-04-10 02:43:03 PM
So did someone create the sexual definition of his name for political reasons or does it predate his career?
 
2012-04-10 02:43:25 PM
Deliberate?
From the NYT blog, The Caucus (new window):

"Rick Santorum suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, bowing to the inevitability of Mitt Romney's nomination and ending his improbable, come-from-behind quest to become the party's conservative standard-bearer in the fall."
 
2012-04-10 02:43:29 PM
And welcome Mitt's running mate or possible future secretary of state.

Oh yeah. I'd oppress her sexually, if you know what I mean.

/and I think you do

New polling data from PA isn't terrible, but the state's been in tossup territory for a week.
I guess he could no longer believe that it would get better?

LadyBelgara: Loucifer: He's out!? I'm unsure of what will happen next. Quick, someone give me some statisticals!

Either the freepers quickly pretend they were for Rmoney all along, or they go batshiat and split the party voting for independents that are for Amurika.


Browsing FP, it seems as if a lot of people are swearing up and down that they won't vote for Romney, no matter what, never, ever, so you can bet they'll be voting for Romney in November.

The pro-Romney people are being called Romneybots.

Suspending.... I love that.

Meaning: "All you ignorant assholes keep on sending me money!"

Now the fundie that lives down the road from me will have to replace the 30 stickers / signs he has all over his van and yard.
 
2012-04-10 02:43:56 PM
I guess that means it's up to Angry Old Baby to attack Rmoney and further ruin Mittens' chances of winning (not that he ever really had any chance of winning in the first place).

From Freeperland:

I am guessing his daughter is pretty sick.

Good! Now Obama can focus his sights on one of the most dishonest human being the republican party has ever put forth.

What if they get gay marriage and abortion referendums on the ballot?
 
2012-04-10 02:44:53 PM
Not quitting, just "suspending" that way he can still collect donations from people who think abortions and gays are the biggest problems our country has.

This.

I doubt my mother will vote this year. She hates Mormons, and isn't in lockstep with the party. She doesn't like Obama either. The Step Dad will vote for whichever candidate Fox News tells him to vote for, although I think he voted Bob Barr in 2008.

Although... He got rather pissed Michigan's Governor Snyder raised his taxes, as well as cut services he directly relies on, so he might sit this one out as well.
