Looking At The Field

Rick Perry is considering a run for President.  This former 3 term democrat in the Texas house of Representatives,   raised taxes in Texas in 2006, angering conservatives.  He hates the federal government. Hates it enough to, at one point, openly consider taking the state of Texas and seceding from the United States.  That’s the guy you want running the federal government, right?


Sarah Palin is beginning a bus tour that makes it look like she wants to run for President.

She won’t. She knows that Americans are not that stupid.  Well some of us aren’t that stupid, anyway.

Chris Christie looks like he may run for President.  Or at the very least there are Republican donors looking to get him to run.  This despite the fact that his poll numbers in his home state are falling, his states credit rating is taking a hit because of his fiscal policies, and is a cheapskate, badly enough that the state’s highest court has ordered him to spend more money on Education. That’s what a Republican rock star looks like.  Srsly.  There are people that actually call him that.  Because he speaks bluntly.

What a bunch of assholes.

Don’t mind the name calling, just “rockin’ out.”



Laws are no longer made by a rational process of public discussion; they are made by a process of blackmail and intimidation, and they are executed in the same manner. The typical lawmaker of today is a man wholly devoid of principle — a mere counter in a grotesque and knavish game. If the right pressure could be applied to him, he would be cheerfully in favor of polygamy, astrology or cannibalism.

Viddy of the day:  Dan Savage on the origin of “Santorum.”


Rick Santorum is running for President, and is the dirtiest , most obscenely biological neologism on the internet. ‘Nuff said.

Donald Trump is running for President of…. whatever planet he is actually from.

Newt Gingrich is running for President.  Does anyone remember how this guy made a name for himself?  By whining about having to get out of the back of the air force one after Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral, and whining like a bitch about it, and shutting down the government because of it.  For leaving his wife while she was in the hospital, with cancer.  The failure of his “Contract On America” to do much for America, besides cost us money, with its biggest measure, the fiscal responsibility act, being found to be unconstitutional.

Mitt Romney? The Former pro-choice governor of Massachusetts?  Romneycare?  Hmmm… I don’t think so.

Are you impressed? I’m not.

There are no really impressive Republican names out there running for President.


That’s it from here, America.  G’night.
