His constituents are defending him with "b-b-but Clinton", "b-b-but Kennedy" and "the women are whores."

When you're having to smash Chattanooga papers as being liberal, you know you've farked up.

The race is close. How is that surprising? Voters in places like Tennessee have been trained to be loyal to the Republican party above all else.

I guess family values don't matter so much after all.

Of course they matter.

And, Republicans are always pro-family values. All evidence to the contrary is to be disregarded.

But she also said they smoked marijuana during their relationship and remembered DesJarlais prescribing her pain medication on dates at his home.

Hey, when you look like a young Uncle Fester, it makes sense to fall back on your ability to prescribe quality narcotics.

The hilarious side-effect of politicians also being humans is whenever we get to see their human exploits described in political fashion. I swear the only time I hear pot called "marijuana" is when a politician was caught smoking some.

But he'll fight to make abortion illegal and protect the sanctity of marriage! We have to vote for him!

Not really. Pro conservatives are going to roll pro conservative, liberals going to roll liberal. You have to convince the undecided. As the consensus of Fark "politics" submitters that the undecideds are a bag of dicks for not having already chosen to be democrat (see fark's debate thread), you are gonna have to be a little more sensitive to my penise's needs if you want my "undecided" vote.

Even Nazi Germany wasn't as farked as Tennessee. Congrats, rednecks.

Most people don't care if their politicians are actually good people or deserve to be elected to office. They have been indoctrinated into republicanism from childbirth and just like their belief in Jesus no amount of logic or reason will dissuade them.

A third of the country would still vote for a Republican candidate over a Democrat even if he consumed a newborn child on live TV.

"Well, he may EAT babies, but at least he doesn't ABORT them!"

I guess some women enjoy being to the truth about themselves--that they have no right to decide when to have children, that they don't even know what rape is...

And all anti-life people would vote for a Democrat even after watching him perform a late term abortion in person. That's how it goes.

But I still don't see where this guy's job performance is affected by who he screws around with. Right, Bill and Hillary?

shotglasss: And all anti-life people


There's an anti-life movement? Holy shiat. I had no idea.

Since they seem to be the antithesis to the pro-life movement, do they explode bombs at abortion clinics that make people come back to life? Do they not shoot people at churches?

You need to send me a pamphlet on these folks, please.

interesting viewpoint. my life experience is that politicians are lowlife lying self-serving connected manipulators with little or no morals or personal values and that most all adults are well aware of this. R or D politicians are not made to live up to their campaign promises. people are so used to getting such poor performance from those in office that most folks seem to have no expectations of politicians at all. it's all a huge hoodwink.

my BIL pointed out that there is the type that will declare "my grand daddy voted X, my daddy voted X, so I'm voting X" party types out there. that was one of the saddest things i've ever heard. ignorance is a horrible thing.

Do we know any conservatives who admit to eating baby? Do we know any party that doesn't have a problem with abortion? Actually pro choice- what is best for you and your body is not really my business. Not pro eating babies either- that's just disgusting

Children, that there's what you call "false equivalency." See what junior did there? A Republican candidate blending up a baby and sipping it through a straw because they're sick farks is not nearly the same thing as performing an emergency medical procedure to save the life of a woman.

Late term and third trimester abortions are performed due to the threat of the life and health of the mother or a fetal genetic or severe deformity or abnormality of the fetus. Some of the genetic and fetal abnormalities can be found on the following address: (Link)

No one would be able to view a medical procedure the way they would in this example be able to watch Romney and his buddies sipping on dead baby stew from a hidden camera at a fundraising dinner anyway. And, the sickness that is Republican hypocrisy is not in any universe the same as a non-partisan, non-political subscription to the Hippocratic oath.

If you believe the FiveThirtyEight calculations, right now a Romney presidency is slightly more likely than flipping 2 coins and having them both come up as heads. He's getting better odds (37.1%) over at Intrade.

It's basically a similar concept to droit de signeur and such; the people in power are held to a different set of standards because they're in power and, therefore, are superior to the rest of us. He;s basically just a boy being a boy and all that.

On the other hand he has far worse odds over at Princeton Election Consortium which doesn't use national polls in its model since unlike 538 it's only interested in the EV results and not the popular vote:
