GAT_00: Doktor_Zhivago: GAT_00: Huckleberry

I will have to refer to him as that from this day forth.

I'm assuming it's a portmanteau of Huckabee and dingleberry.

That works.  It also simply just fits to call him Huckleberry.


Calling Huckabee "Huckleberry" is an insult to Huckleberry Finn and Mark Twain. Twain would see the current GOP as the worst of Americana.

It was sometime around the Iowa Straw Poll that I really started to put it all together that it was going to be a shiat-show courtesy of the GOP. Yeah, the winds were blowing that way but you always want to believe than an organization that has some money behind it will pull it together.

Besides, it's Dems who fall in love and the GOP that fall in line.  Right?  Right?

And that's what the Tea Party did.  They said it was okay to fall in love.  They said it was okay to have feelings, like the one's you know are wring and inappropriate.  And some of them even said it's okay to blurt them out over the air-waves about a Georgetown co-ed, or on a Sunday morning TV show when asked about abortion in the case of rape.

Already I'm giddy about it.  I can't wait for the mid-terms to be over because the scramble to screw this up is going to be epic.  Really.  After watching CPAC today it occurred to me; they've learned nothing.  They put their hands into a boiling pot of water, spent a week in the hospital for burns and skin grafts and they're heading right back into the kitchen to do it all over again.

I've said it before and I will say it again.  This is an awesome time to be a political junkie, and even better to be a Democrat.

TheManofPA: Don't see anyone discussing really the random name on the list Carson, who ended up 7th in the straw poll. Odd to see a neurosurgeon who doesn't believe in evolution. It does suck though that he said he's going to retire from being a slicer after all these years (sure the books are hype, but the man is a gifted surgeon). Hopefully he doesn't go off the deep end to move up in the party and tries to push more back to center.


He's the Tea Party's new black friend.

Btw, an update from CNN:

"Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Paul won with 25% of the vote and finished slightly ahead of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. In third place was former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania."

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Meanwhile, Queen Sarah is still being the same old coont as always


That's amazing. She cashed in on an actual shiat-for-brains reality TV show, and she says that the Obamas star in one. At this point, she could claim that it was Obama's nitwit handling of a simple TV interview with Katie Couric that sank the McCain candidacy and those morons would cheer her.

"And what about Obama's invasion of Iraq?" Hysterical cheering.

So that would mean Santorum.  I hope that comes to pass. If Santorum doesn't become the candidate I will be sad.

Santorum has an advantage over any new candidate that tries to win the nomination in '16:  he managed to last through the end of the primaries last time around, so he starts off with a better ground game (just like Romney last time, and McCain in '08).  Like you, I hope that Santorum becomes the Republican nominee, and I'm very happy to see esteemed journalistical resources such as WorldNetDaily spreading Santorum's message across the intertubes.

Reagan (1976)

Dole (1988)
McCain (2000)
Romney (2008)
Santorum (2012)

Yes, Santorum needs to spread. Thick, foamy and odious Santorum. I hope that who ever is the D nominee gets a few frothy jokes out there or better yet, somehow gets Dan Savage to be a debate moderator.

Well, he did serve as GW Bush's Director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget during the time in which that Administration turned a budget surplus into a huge deficit, so he's got that economic genius going for him.
