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

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.

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.)

I almost have enough votes in Iowa to start a bowling league. #Roementum

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.

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

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.

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..."

97.5% on intrade

Huntsman would be blasting Beefheart. Would love to discuss that with him, as well as talking about how all such experimentation is inherently left-wing.

no way. you make a pizza for the second time in a week and he just gives you this LOOK. he doesn't say anything, but it's clear that you're supposed to grow up and start cooking real meals.

since i assume that none of them would flush the toilet, which would have the worst best excuse for not doing so?!?

romney is a robot. he enters the restroom on occasion in an attempt to reduce the suspicions of others, but all he does is look at himself in the mirror.

As usual, the Iowa caucuses decide nothing. I swear it is all a conspiracy put together by Days Inn and pancake restaurants who make out like bandits from the whole thing.

(Does Iowa cover three or four time zones? I'm always confused as to why some results come in three hours before others.)

Don't get it: refresh, and CNN goes backwards to 98% in.
