My favorite Iowa caucus result? The 133 people who voted "No Preference" So it's January in Iowa. It's dark, the temperature is hovering just over freezing, and you take the trouble to drive to your local VFW hall, sit through an hour of speeches, actually stick around to the very end to vote, and then when it all comes down to it, you vote "No Preference"? Seriously, WTF?! Are you really that bored? These people must call the suicide hotline just to share their pie recipes.

Or we could continue to have this guy.

Why not?

/I never understood why that picture keeps being used

Because it's Obama on a bicycle, looking like a dorky recreational bicyclist.
The Republican voter isn't happy unless his Presidential candidate only ever travels in a motorcade of gigantic Presidential limousines with USA flag decals on the obsidian-black mirror polished door panels, dual Ma Deuce machine guns, a Marine Core helicopter filled with NAVY SEALS hovering twenty feet overhead (HOOAH) at 115 miles per hour getting 1 mile per gallon sucking down quarter pounder cheeseburgers from Mcdonalds in the old style nonbiodegradable styrofoam containers that he chucks out the window at the gay pride parade.

TheJoe03: The WindowLicker: I really hope, that after all the hooting and hollering about occupy wall street, those dammed hippies occupy a farking voting booth next year.

Too bad Obama has successfully drove away and disappointed his young, liberal base. What a dumbass.

/Him raiding and attacking the medical marijuana clubs in CA was the first straw
//Him signing the fascist police state defense bill was the last
///I'm either voting 3rd party or not at all.

That was my last straw...and I'm a straight ticket Dem. Not in 2012. I will not vote for Obama.

Santorum: Like your favorite answer on the quiz you didn't study for - (E) None of the Above
Romney: Is awesome except for the creepy polygamist cult thing
Paul: Ross Perot, if Perot was burning a cross on your lawn
Gingrich: He's fat, ugly, goes through wives like kleenex, and says stupid shiat
Bachmann: So farking crazy she's even less desirable than Gingrich

the opposite of charity is justice: CNN and Wolf Blitzer are on the phone with the precinct that hasn't reported in, if the numbers being reported are correct it sounds like Romney wins Iowa by 20-something votes.

See that is why I don't believe in Iowa for anything. At least in Illinois we already have the results a few weeks before the election and we make sure our dead people have contributed to the democratic process.

From Sullivan's blog:

A reader's comment about Bachmann -- "The definition of tone-deaf: The entire country thinks your husband is gay, and the cute little anecdote you choose to pull out about him is that, while you were all campaigning, he was buying accessories for your dog."

LOL - did Bachmann really farking talk about that in her concession speech?

What's real odd is that this is a different venue (look at the different podiums) but they stand in the same spots

I couldn't find any details that are different, I think it's the same venue but a different angle.

BoothbyTCD: Eeeeexcelent! More crazy people! More derp! Dance for my amusement GOP! Now we just need Paul or Bacjmann to win in New Hampshire. Go forth and stir that pot of shiat!

No, we need Huntsman to win in New Hampshire, so that the GOP have to stop and consider the possibility that someone other than a ranting extremist might be who they want to run... They wont follow through on it, but there will be confusion!

I think it'll happen sometime between Hell Freezes Over and Monkeys Fly Out of My Butt.

Captain Frothy McButtfroth still ain't got a prayer. I'd bet his taxidermied fetus on it.

I'm surprised as well. I've actually been keeping up with (or so I thought ... ) the goings-on of things in politics lately and I had no idea Santorum was even running for the nomination.

ACEllis: I think Santorum had an amazing speech. It was genuine, laid out a tangible jobs plan, and showed a serious human side that is impossible to call fake.

Well, I see someone else has not been paying attention to any sort of politics at all, so now I don't feel so bad.

ACallForPeace: TheJoe03: Is this really the best we can do America? We have over 300 million people and we can't find one decent person to lead us? Really?

It's not that there are no decent people to lead those 300 million people.
It's that no decent person wants to be a leader and nobody who wants to lead people is decent.
Even if they are decent, the leadership role in the hierarchy will change that soon enough.

More to the point, the only thing Americans hate more than a crooked politician is an honest one.

A hilarious result. American political expert and former judge of NBC reality programming, Piers Morgan, thinks that Santorum is likeable and admirable. Equally funny.
