    I'm going to give it a shot. If you don't hear from me in 2 hours send for help.

    OK, it's been 2+ hours!!


    Laughing Laughing Laughing Thanks Don. I'm ok. Although I'm having this feeling to scrub off all my skin, shove ice picks in my ears and carve my eyes out with a spoon.

    Good grief! These people are fucking insane!!! affraid

    After suffering through all of that, I have concluded that I hate Rick Santorum MORE than ever before. (If that's even possible.) They all suck on social policy. They all suck on foreign policy. They all suck. Claudia, where are you? (You know she'd be all over this like white on rice.)

    Why is it that I agree with Ron Paul so much of the time and then he pulls out a zinger and I have to write him off as crazy? I don't get it.

    Wow. That was something else. The summary from ThinkProgress that I posted earlier did a really good summary.

    Oh, how I miss the hot tub. We'd be boiling over by now.

    Ok. I'm going to watch last night's Daily Show which Lin said was a hit. I need to wash my brain.

    I'll see yinz on the NET because you all know I'm winning. cyclops

    Nope, my turn to WIN!

    Eff Michelle Bachman - poor girl was offended about her being "subservient" to her holy husband.

    "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." Ephesians 5:22
    "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law." 1 Corinthians 14:34

    Ahhh, the selective hypocrisy of organized religion!

    Well.

    There's that.

    Maybe I should email those to her.

    I missed the debate during my flight back home. Maybe it was for the best.

    Same tired statements. They tried to pin them down on science and global warming but they danced the dance and avoided the questions.

    You didn't miss much. You could have predicted this just as easily. Newt leading the circle jerk against Obama and blaming the media for introducing a fight between the candidates. A lot of Reagan loving. A lot of tracking back previous statements. And Ron Paul and 999 Hermain Cain. (I missed that so I can't wait to read about it tomorrow.)

    Just what you'd expect.

    I'm seeing some of the "lowlights" this morning. Perry is off his rocker. And Romney is actually trying to get to the left of Perry by "defending" Social Security.

    I've got to say this. Rachel Maddow's apparently genuine giddiness whenever she covers events like this turns my stomach. She seemingly can't get enough of poliTICS (as opposed to poliCY): the personalities, the partisanship, the bickering, the sloganeering, the spin, etc. She seems to thoroughly enjoy entertaining* TRUTHINESS.

    * in both senses of the word

    Yeah. I don't know why she does a decent job of covering issues on her show most of the time, and then gets all caught up in the horse race aspects of debates and elections. Who's up? Who's down? Who got one over on the forerunner? Can that one still be considered the forerunner? How will that gaffe affect elderly primary voters in North Carolina and Hispanic voters in Nevada months from now? ARGRRHH! It drives me batty!

    I suspect that her having a Ph.D. in Political Science from Oxford, might explain her apparent fascination with the "horse race" aspects of campaigns. Observing the political animals politicians are, is her "sport." That coupled with her undergrad degree in Public Policy from Stanford fuels her fire, so to speak. My poli-sci advisor was the same come election time.

    Santorum says "no place for sex" in the military!

    A gay soldier asked him a question about DADT.
