NateGrey: tkwasny: If the GOP goes for deep dirt on the Obama administration, non-stop, they might win if they pick a black VP like Condi Rice or Allen West. If Romney wins it's more corporatism just like Obama. The people lose again in 2012 either way. Loss with a cannon shot to the face, or loss with a hop into a lava pit.

Both sides are bad. Vote Republican.


So now its become who you DON'T want more in the White House. Gee I'm all a-twitter about this election cycle.

Sofa King Smart: Weaver95: 'shining city on the hill'.

what weird catch phrases evangelicals have...

Reagan used that 'biblical' phrase... so by using it they get associated with both... god and Reagan (which for many 'conservatives' is the same entity).


Actually conservatives believed that if you crucified Reagan he would only take one day to come back to life.

GOP: "They bought it!"

This was planned all along folks. The GOP nomination process was never nothing more than an elaborate show.

His daughter suffers from a trisomy 18 defect and she will, in all probability die in a few years. But this time, her illness was minor (if she was actually ill at all). She was only in the hospital for two days. He can blame it on her illness, though, and say he needs to spend time with his family. Then he can later accept the VP tap.

I guess we're done with the fun portion of this election.

netweavr: And on a more serious note, I hope his daughter gets well soon. No one likes having a sick child.


In a related note, mark your calendar - in about 2 weeks Rick will be telling Fox News that the reason he got out was that it was too much strain on his family, particularly the special needs child he spawned much like the Palins who were too god damn old to have another farking oxygen-poaching mouth-breathing child.

And then the United Coalition of New Derpistan (GOP) will applaud him and he'll go down as some sort of retarded hero in the pantheon of derpy news.

Vlad_the_Inaner: 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.

Which validates the French building their base in a valley at Điện Biên Phủ?


Because those are the only two options? Your city should be built on a waterway or against a pass of some sort. You need to prevent being encircled and cut-off from resupply. Else you're just building a monument to human stupidity.

bobbette: But, more importantly, Alanis Obomsawin's documentary of the Oka Crisis, Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance, covers a lot of similar themes up to (nearly) the present day, and you can watch the full feature film on the NFB's website.


I forgot about that flick - I saw it at work a couple of years ago, which means it aired on at least one digital specialty channel in the past couple of years. Excellent film.

There are several good films on NFB's site - Finding Dawn was heart-wrenching.

My old job had a couple of weekly programs hosted by aboriginal people. Both were well worth listening to.

She's not going to get well soon. Or ever. She has Trisome 18. It's a genetic disorder, extra chromosome. They don't get better.

Dr Dreidel: zedster: Zion (Hebrew for penis)

No.

"Zion" is the Anglicized form of the Hebrew word "tsee-own" [tzadik-yud-vav-nun), a euphemism for Jerusalem; though really it's a placeholder for "rebuilt center of Jewry, complete with Temple." I think it's also the origin of the English word "scion".

"Zayin" (also the 7th letter of the Hebrew alphabet) is a slang term for "penis", due to the shape of the letter in modern Hebrew block print.

I've corrected this mistake before. I really hope it's not a "thing" now...


the angloized zion was a mistransliteration by a German biblical scholar. Also, Zayin b'ayin or b'tachat is a common joke Hebrew phrase with the later the equivalent of stick up their ass

I think they'll come around and vote for the lesser of two evils (from their perspective) - the one without a "D" next to his name.

Crying daughter got hot since the crying pic. And is it just me or does Harry Potter son have a touch of gay face?

Yes and yes, and I think we have discussed the gayface of Harry Potter Santorum before. It would be poetic justice if two of his kids ended up gay. (Crying Daughter would be such a hot femme.)


Poetic justice, yes, but I wouldn't want to wish that on his kids with him as their father. I imagine that the shiat would hit the fan even worse than it did with Alan Keyes' daughter, who wound up practically homeless after he refused to pay for her education.
 
2012-04-10 03:07:10 PM

Guidette Frankentits: Clearly this means The USA is a Christian nation and is ready to implement a New Word Order and Christian Theocracy, clearly.


This would have worked a lot better had Santorum WON, not dropped out of the race. No, this means that we're all ready to embrace the revealed truth of Joseph Smith.

I, for one, will be immediately dropping out of school and preparing myself to love my fellow sister wives.

make me some tea: kid_icarus: 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).

I was taught that in Lutheran school as well, although my teabagger dad is favorable toward Mormons having worked for a company owned by a Mormon family for 40 years. I'm not sure what his opinion of Romney is, however, but I don't think he was a fan of Santorum either. My folks like Gingrich from the looks of it.


I think if the Romney camp has any hope of bringing in the evangelical Christian vote, they'll have to downplay his Mormonism (at least in terms of the theology) and instead focus on the common social issues they share. Expect to see abortion and the gheys talked about a lot.

the freepers are having a mental breakdown right now, but again - its early. by the end of the week I suspect they'll have worked their way around to accepting Romney as the opposition candidate.


It'll be a few weeks. Remember the HillaryIs44 gang? Obama was sexist and they were going to no vote or go McCain? A month later they were in the fold.

Obama will say something (anything) and they'll proclaim it the worst ever and pronounce how they'll hold their noses and vote. A few weeks after that they'll be back in the fold - whether it's the VP nod or Convention or something random, they'll be back.

Oh my god, Crying Girl (Sarah Maria Santorum) really is 14. She was born in 1998.

This child was 3 years old on 9/11.

Did you think she was hot? You (me too) are now a pervert. If Rick Santorum was in charge all our licenses for the sexual realm would be suspended.

LadyBelgara: Aar1012: Any statement from Romneybot 2.0?

Aye, the typical crap:

Mitt Romney's campaign issued the following statement congratulating Rick Santorum:

"Senator Santorum is an able and worthy competitor, and I congratulate him on the campaign he ran. He has proven himself to be an important voice in our party and in the nation. We both recognize that what is most important is putting the failures of the last three years behind us and setting America back on the path to prosperity."


So will he be disappearing this weekend to upgrade to the Romneybot OS 2.5?

From Freeperville

This means either:

1) Obama wins. Or,

2) The onerous Romney wins, fouls up horribly, cements the liberal socialist agenda in Washington, captains the economy as it collapses, guaranteeing that the Democrats will rule for another 50 years, assuming the United States itself does not collapse from its top-heavy, inefficient and totalitarian government.

In both cases, the conservative Supreme Court is lost, America's status as an economic and military superpower is over, internationalism will cause massive deprivation and suffering, our Bill of Rights will be forgotten and we will be subjected to East Germany quality nanny-statism.

The parts of our economy that could succeed will be suppressed, we will have massive and unpopular social change foisted on us, ignorant and fatalistic pseudo-scientists will finally get a ruinous chance to lord it over us with fantasies like population control and MMGW, and Agenda 21 will try to force all Americans into giant metropolises on the coasts, so that the heartland will be depopulated.

The very young will either be aborted or raised in government controlled stalls like farm animals, and anyone over the age of 60 will be put down as "obsolete". Death will be king.

Our allies will fall like dominoes before assorted tyrants, and millions of innocent people will be enslaved or die.

Congratulations, Republican leaders. This is what you wanted. This is what you craved. This is what you paid for and forced. And this is why you struggled so hard against the conservatives that wanted to stop this.

You won. America lost. Hopefully America will be remembered as a place that was once great, like Atlantis, a wonderful place full of dynamic people that the oppressed people of the world could have looked at with hope, that they might someday live like that, in freedom and liberty.

And hopefully, people like you will be remembered for ruining it, both directly and in complicity with the forces of evil and despair. That your names be cursed until they are forgotten, and your offspring live as castrated chattel.

You won.


But, tell us how you really feel?
 
2012-04-10 03:10:24 PM
Hmm, he dropped out right before the PA race...he served in PA...so he probably found out in polling that PA people probably were going to crap all over him for being the dingle berry he is...and then Romney could say - hey look PA is where he served and nobody likes him there.

So he saved some face and dropped out before any PA santorum could be sprayed on him there.

They're still different words. not homonyms, homophones, synonyms or in any way related. They come from different root words.

If it's a joke, it's not funny. It'd be like saying "That John Kerry; what a maroon! I bet he went shiat nuts at his HS prom, too!"

Sorry, angry at the dumbass parents. Just because your penis can still spew seed and her wizard sleeve can accept it, doesn't mean that it is a good idea to have kids in your 40s.

Every child is a gift! (if you are a rich asshole who can afford the insurance or the out-of-pocket expenses)

It's real easy to say every child is a gift, Rick, when you don't have to worry at night how you're going to care for the so-called gift, you prick.

I too think Ricky got out before a loss in PA slapped him silly. Can't make a dime as a FOX News contributer with that kind of embarrassment.
