Just when I thought Santorum couldn't get anymore retarded..

Postby Mr. Coffee » 2012-01-24 04:53am

He ups and does this shit. That's right, folks... Santorum loves CUM and can't wait for you to splash a hot conservative load (of cash) all over his smiling face.

And we wonder why the rest of the world points and laughs at America so much.

I am at the brink of preferring that Santorum get the nomination.

Because Obama will massacre him so bad in the general elections that the crazy batshit insane wing of the Republican party will be thoroughly discredited.

Really? Because if the stupid shit people are throwing at him is the worst they've got, it's going to be a cakewalk. He's had people sniggering about cum and santorum, claiming "pli- people's lives" means "black", and accusing him of killing his unborn daughter because she died from complications caused by surgery meant to save her life. Is it too much to ask that people attack him in ways that at least make some fucking sense?

I don't get it. Did they really not see that? Especially after the whole semen + fecal matter thing? Or were they just so in love with the name Conservatives United Moneybomb that they decided they were going to go with it anyway?

Santorum is a bumbling loon, and his campaign makes him look like a bumbling loon. Even when people attack him over stupid shit (and he is also getting attacked for very good reasons as well, not limited to being a huge fucking bigot) like that, his response is idiotic at best, and more importantly makes him look more like a bunmbling loon. Compare that to Obama, where people attacked him over stupid shit (No Birth Certificate! He's a MOOZLIM!) and they were the ones that came out looking like idiots.

People have been saying they would love to see any of the republican field in Question Time, simply because they would look like massive idiots. That's not necessary, put any of them in a debate with Obama and he will eat them alive. He may not have had a great run with the presidency, and was not the savior may hoped he would be, but campaigning is what the man does, and he will butcher any of the current republicans simply on the idiocy of most of their own policies.

You realize how Santorum came to be associated with santorum, right? It's because of his medieval-era policies on homosexuals and his generally regressive attitudes. His wanting to repeal "Obamacare" alone is going to lose him substantial votes, while I'm sure the public is going to love his sabre-rattling with Iran.

On the whole, the guy is a horrifically shitty candidate, so why not laugh at his idiotic choice of acronyms?

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say it's because it's his name.

If anyone wants to give him flak about his political positions I say go right ahead, just quit being such a child about it.

That definition came about because he was being a giant homophobic douchnozzle and pissed off a rather famous blogger who decided to launch a campaign to redefine his name as such...

A lot of people are talking about it. Which might very well be the goal here.

One reason I love our electoral system in America is how it boils down the party differences and agendas, and makes everything so clear.

Watching 5 or 6 men all trying to be MORE Republican than the others (and/or Democrat, depending who the incumbent is) really makes it clear what these people, experienced politicians and dedicated party members, think the Republican party is and stands for in ways that speeches and manifestos don't.

Apparently this year people think that 'Republican' stands for 'bigot and probable lunatic.' Their brilliant plan to make me vote democrat is working, and I can't wait to see how they make that benefit them.

It's gotten to the point that I dread a "moderate" like Romney winning the nomination, because if he loses to Obama then the crazy part of the Republican base will just scream louder and go "WE NEED SOMEONE EVERN MOAR CONSERVATIVE".

Bachmann may end up the sanest Republican nominee in the next cycle if this happens -_-.

I think there is a good chance that like his friend and former colleague Larry Craig, Santorum may himself be in the closet.

Have a very nice day.

And that scheme of his actually worked.

I was not aware of that, but it still doesn't change how I feel on the subject.

A kickstarter project counts as a "scheme" now?

Well if you want to continue the metaphor, he and his supporters are spooging all over the naysayers...ohh angry political sex! There's a market for that somewhere. And, with a goal of $1M and current donations of $2,609,486, SpessMareen31*3 has a valid point.

Maybe those damn dirty Santorites understand double entendre and are giggling all the way to the war chest, hmmm?

Santorum's problem got its start back in 2003, when the then-senator from Pennsylvania compared homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia, saying the "definition of marriage" has never included "man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be." The ensuing controversy prompted syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage, who's gay, to start a contest, soliciting reader suggestions for slang terms to "memorialize the scandal." The winner came up with the "frothy mixture" idea, Savage launched a website, and a meme was born. Even though mainstream news outlets would never link to it, Savage's site rose in the Google rankings, thanks in part to bloggers who posted Santorum-related news on the site or linked to it from their blogs. Eventually it eclipsed Santorum's own campaign site in search results; some observers even suggested it may have contributed to Santorum's crushing 18-point defeat in his 2006 campaign against Bob Casey.

So, what, is SM93's point that half of America is insane because a relative handful of people donated money to Santorum's campaign even though his fundraiser has a silly acronym?
