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.

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

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

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.

99% in, and, honest to god, they're separated by five votes.

(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.

Newt's opening shot: hacking into CNN's website and putting up phony numbers for Santorum.

Tie goes to the runner. That's when they bring in Chris Christie.

It really is amazing--go back two weeks ago, and Santorum was fighting Bachmann for last place.

I do love when they start blaming Obama for divorces and depression.

"A bunch of fellow rightwingers have been depressed since he got elected and now their spouses are divorcing them because they've become emotionally isolated and utterly monomaniacal. This must stop!"

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 05:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

This has been Romney's schtick all week--quoting from "America the Beautiful." Wait until Newt unleashes "You Should Never Have Opened That Door" starting tomorrow.

romney down to 40 on in trade! I know I'm the only one who cares about intrade but 97.5 to 40 in like 10 mins is pretty lol

A Romneybot would hearken unto such lines as "Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears", now wouldn't it?

those intrade bounces/plummets are fascinating.

I remember looking around there last year, and there was a totally inexplicable one day bump for romney where all of a sudden he was in the 90s.
