It's large, so I'll just link to it, but here's the ad Gingrich is running in NH tomorrow:

Dicks was the last Republican administration--these are Newts and Mitts and Ricks.

Alfred's hero, David Gergen, says that Gingrich is "on a crusade to bring Mitt Romney down."

if you were forced to share an apartment with one of these assholes for a month, who would you choose?

rick perry (best) - he's really dumb but is seems like he'd give you some space. he apparently believes that he's been chosen by god to, uh, run a terrible campaign and then exit early, but i get the feeling that he only evangelizes when other evangelists are looking. he'd probably leave me alone and pay the rent.
huntsman - almost put him at #1 but it seemed too obvious. he's a fool but at least he doesn't think scientists are evil.
mitt romney - he would be really boring and would probably think less of you for not wearing a sport coat all of the time, and he's a cold and calculating robot, but at least he seems somewhat intelligent.
michele bachman - what a sad state of affairs where this monster somehow doesn't rank last. she would yell at you about the dishes, she'd yell at you for not going to church, she'd just fucking yell at you all of the time.
newt gingrich - he only pays half the rent and tries to make you pay 150% of your own rent, justifying it by laying out a laundry list of things you have done wrong.
santorum (worst) - anything you do is wrong. you are going to hell, and he will always have his annoying, crying family over. also all of the anal froth everywhere, all over the carpet, in the cappucino

Fundamentally, not Newt. I'm guessing that when the cameras are off, Perry's just like one of the drunks who used to bang up power carts when I worked at a golf course 35 years ago. I think he'd probably be fun.

clemenza, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

santorum would be the best because imagine how fun it would be to make him listen to your sex noises.

Bachmann not dropping out. The debate this weekend shall be...of interest.

can this pleaaaaase end in a tie

k3vin k., Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh, no tie ... just getting rid of ONE of these assholes for good would be nice (apparently TOO nice).

Gay Andy Taffel (Eisbaer), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

I know this is the expectations-game that drives non-junkies crazy, but I think Romney and Santorum are in the clear either way--it seems to me that it's Paul who got dented a bit tonight.

clemenza, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

Romney got all of 25% of the Iowa vote, and according to a source (boston.com) linked on google: "only 56 percent of Romney's backers voiced strong support for him". Good show, big fella.

Aimless, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

That 56% does surprise (and encourage) me.

clemenza, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha neither is gonna drop out after losing by 50 votes - a virtual tie - especially romney

xxp

k3vin k., Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

feel like there might be a big difference in the narrative if romney wins iowa and nh!! vs. comes 2nd in iowa (by 100 votes) and wins nh

iatee, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

until tonight, i thought that i knew the only true-blue Santorum supporter (a coworker, an otherwise wonderful chap) ... he isn't even from Pennsylvania (or, maybe that's why he likes Man-on-Dog so much).

Gay Andy Taffel (Eisbaer), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wouldn't a solid win for Romney in NH make Iowa more or less moot? I mean, I hope it doesn't happen, but if it does?

clemenza, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

perry sounds like he's about to drop out

your pain is probably equal (Z S), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wow--Perry seems to be dropping out.

clemenza, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

he just said he would return to texas and "assess" the situation, or whatever.

not unexpected, i guess, but i thought he'd drag it out a bit longer

suspending his campaign

your pain is probably equal (Z S), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 04:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh, shit, reassessing, not suspending. fuck you rachel maddow, i was right!

your pain is probably equal (Z S), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

already saw the media prepping the 'romneys been hanging around Iowa for years why doesnt no one like him' narrative earlier tonight fwiw

nice knowin ya rick j/k you're ridiculous

Clay, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

This reassessment of Perry's will result in him bowing out of the next debate and essentially ending the campaign.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

That's about the first smart thing he's done all campaign. Bachmann reportedly lives under the delusion she's in the running for VP--she needs to vacate too.

I can't but think the rest of his term as governor is going to be everyone in the Texas GOP finally getting out the knives on him.

25k caucused for Obama tonight, apparently a much larger number than anyone expected

37 votes now lol

k3vin k., Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

Santorum benefitted most here from being a sanctimonious, colorless drudge. The sanctimony attracted the religious right voters and, as the colorless drudge who was stuck in the low single digits for six months, he didn't draw any fire from his opponents, so he was still standing when the rest of the flavors-of-the-month faltered.

Mr. Paul may pick up some strength among the live-free-or-die kooks, now.

Also, McCain to endorse Romney. Oh joy!

CNN panel is debating where Perry stands in relation to Fred Thompson and John Connally as the worst candidate ever. (I'd also throw in Phil Gramm's war chest-heavy run.)

Plz, god, give us Santorum, RuPaul and Newt, in that order.

^^ quoting myself. Yes, I am giddy, as promised. This result was close enough for me.

Aimless, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm thinking the santorum voters just know they're gonna get a second chane to vote for romney in November and wanted to spice up their lives a bit. I man imagine having to vote for Romney twice, sheesh.

Clay, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was hoping for Beck, Bogert, and Appice, but this is good enough.

has anyone made the joke about santorum coming from behind yet?

because he is

your pain is probably equal (Z S), Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nobody really wants to drop out because of the good chance they could have a lead in the polls tomorrow or the next day. This race has been nuts.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nicole had a great Santorum line upthread.

Re: sharing an apartment

-Huntsman would be blasting prog at all hours, can't have that.
-Bachmann would probably be the worst, imagine trying to have your significant other over.
-Santorum I actually think might be ok, he'd probably be busy a lot and the bills would get paid on time. He'd probably get bitchy about little things though.
-Romney would also pay the bills but I don't want to live with that asshole, he'd probably act super ingratiating and try to befriend me.
-Perry would be a nightmare, I'd like spend no time at the place, he'd always be watching shitty TV and inviting his douchebag friends over
-Gingrich would be annoying as hell but also the most entertaining, like I could start a 77 thread called "my asshole staying at my place is being a fuckin dick again" and it would be a gold mine every day

"my asshole staying at my place" uh i mean "this asshole etc..."
