Too bad he's not a fundy. Because I'm pretty sure that if he was born again, he'd claim it was done by C-section so he didn't have to touch the naughty parts. And I'd love that.

But since he is a catholic, Nick's suggestion that he be made a saint makes sense. A whole bunch of people are praying he doesn't get to be president, and if he looses, that would be proof that he's saint material. And he's been brain-dead long enough to qualify.

Crap this is complex. I'm so glad we atheists don't have to put up with all that stuff. Though I do plan to anoint my burger with ketchup tonight.
NO, NO, NO...today is Ash Weds.  You can't eat meat today.  Ketchup...yes.  Burger...NO.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

This is ash Wednesday? Then I'm gonna eat a whole lot of burgers. Baby burgers. And I don't mean those tiny White Castle pieces of crap.

Oh, that's why my Catholic friend gave me an oriental spicy, citrusy, vegetable soup.

The soup was so peppery (even for me) that I had to wash it down with chocolate ice cream.

To be honest, I was rooting, "Bachmann, Bachmann, Bachmann!" a couple months ago, just so we could see all 50 states go against a hypocritical christian, but Ricky-poo is better! Even some of my believing friends are ready to attack him at his religious stance. But he's doing just what other far-righters like to do-- shoot themselves in the foot, arm and pancreas. (Hey, they love the NRA too!)

I can just hear a potential debate between Barack and Ricky-poo:

Panelist: "Mr. President, what is your stance on contraception?"

Pres. Obama: "Well, I certainly won't be going towards the 'Bayer' necessities! I think aspirin has rights too!" (uproarious laughter, Santorum farts, cries and runs away) :D
2nd of all, if all you believe in is peer-reviewed papers, you won't go very far in life...

Slate -- Santorum's Martyr Complex
Quote
It is true, as the Santorum adviser claims, that Romney pivots back to talking about the economy when asked about his religion. But that’s just campaign discipline. Romney switches back to the economy when asked what breakfast cereal he prefers.
...
Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post, who was a Santorum booster before it was cool, precisely identifies his excesses; John Podhoretz in the New York Post explains why Santorum's moralism will be unattractive in a general election; and Peter Wehner in Commentary makes a similar case.
...
Santorum isn’t suffering for his faith. He’s being held accountable for what he says.

About this Normandy Beach thing...apparently the English, Russian and every other army was defeated by the Nazi's, but by god we Americans held off to preserve our way of life so that millions may be denied medical treatment...I bet the British, French, Canadians, and...THE GERMANS are still stewing about not having to be denied health care.
Whodda thunked it Ricky?
I know if I get to see a doctor without going into desperate poverty I'm  gonna fucking kill me some Nazi's!

Anyway my favorite is his #31 -- that the Americans who stormed ashore on D-Day were volunteers fighting for private health care.

Quote
Almost 60,000 average Americans had the courage to go out and charge those beaches on Normandy, to drop out of airplanes who knows where, and take on the battle for freedom. Average Americans, the very Americans that our government now, and this president, does not trust to make a decision on your health care plan. Those Americans risked everything so they could make that decision on their health care plan.

Well, my dad stormed the beaches at Normandy (Omaha Beach), eventually becoming a 100% disabled vet who received socialist healthcare from the VA for 25 years.

All of those things are quite bizarre, but the idea that soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy so they could pick their health care plan is pretty close to the top of the list.

Santorum is not running for President, but for Ayatollah, and there are millions who would like to see America run as a fundamentalist Christian nation and with a President who had the power to enforce their extreme religious beliefs as law.

I want a President who will uphold the sworn oath of office:

Quote
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

not running the nation by the Bible but preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States.

I live in Wisconsin and I have learned firsthand what happens when conservatives gain control of a state's government, the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.  They move quickly to consolidate their power and to further their agenda.  The same would happen to the United States on a national level if they were to gain control of he White House and the Senate.

Very true.  So do you think your Gov. will be tossed out of office when the recall election comes up or has he had enough time and money from the Koc bros to buy it for himself?

I don't know.  It's going to be a tough job with the million$ the Koch bros have to throw the unions and Democratic supporters can never match it.  If only Feingold would have run, he would defeat Walker handily.  If the recall succeeds it will be a tribute to the people of Wisconsin in overcoming the power and corruption of political money.

In 2010 lots of Democrats stayed home from voting and that is how Walker won.  He received 90% of the vote total that McCain received in the presidential election and that is not too shabby in an off-year election.  His Democratic opponent, Barrett, received only 60% of the vote total that went to Obama.  That's how Walker won and it shows what happens when people do not participate in the system--someone will fill the void and have the power to impact the lives of everyone.

Santorum gets sick

Slate -- Can Politics Make You Vomit?
Quote
As for why Santorum, in particular, has been made sick by the separation of church and state, it could be that he has an unusually sensitive stomach. A recent study suggests that people with stronger physiological responses to disgusting images, like a picture of a man with a mouthful of worms, are more likely to identify as politically conservative and to oppose gay marriage.

I am such a person. It makes me good at learning languages but really bad at listening to people.

I am not conservative, except sometimes I get angry with stupid people.

I guess I am an outlier.

I think santorum will lose the bid and then get hired as vice-president. Then, during the capaign the little boys and crack dealers will come forward.

Nothing will be proven, and it will all disappear, until two years after his run as vice-president. At that point, he will be found with a rent boy in a New Jersey apartment.

Maybe.  A weakened Romney will be the nominee of the GOP, but I think that Santorum has burned the bridges and poisoned the waters as far as being a VP with Romney go.  Romney will likely go for a Teahadist, but it won't be Santorum.

Christie, governor of NJ.  Quite possible.  He endorsed Romney last year and so he would be a good fit.  A good strategy for Christie because when Romney gets his ass whupped it sets up Christie to be in a primo position in 2016 to get the Republican nomination and then not have to run against a Democratic incumbent.

That's because whenever you see conservatives around King Rush, they're so far up his ass that you can't tell who they used to be any longer.

Maybe.  A weakened Romney will be the nominee of the GOP, but I think that Santorum has burned the bridges and poisoned the waters as far as being a VP with Romney go.  Romney will likely go for a Teahadist, but it won't be Santorum.

I'm with the others, I see him going for Christie.  It's the only real way Romney can appeal to the GOP base that hates him so hard.

Romney, it should be plain by now will say whatever he thinks people want to hear.  Christie has built his reputation on being an asshole who says what he feels like.
