Super Tuesday coming up. I can feel my bowels loosening with excitement. btw, am I the only one who thinks that Newt's campaign kind of vanished in a puff of smoke when his Nevada sugar daddy stopped doling out multi-million dollar candy canes?

Aimless, Saturday, 3 March 2012 02:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

He's doling out money again, so he'll be spending in Georgia and then the week after in Alabama and Mississippi. Said Sugar Daddy has admitted that he wants either Newt or Mitt, and will do anything to stop Santorum.

what does adelson have against santorum? i thought adelson's main thing was israeli hawkishness, but i find it hard to believe that ricky is lacking in that quality.

mookieproof, Saturday, 3 March 2012 02:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm not sure exactly. Reportedly he doesn't like Santorum's socially conservative views, or at the very least he doesn't like the way it ruins the chances of the Republicans beating Obama.

I like this (Ed Kilgore, assessing Romney going into Tuesday): "But then again, it would be perfectly in character for him to find another way to inform Ohioans he could buy and sell the lot of them with pocket change."

Today's WA GOP caucus: boring, not booing.
Basically a boring 4-way split where Romney kinda sorta won.
I was hoping Paul would win only because it cause another panicked GOP media frenzy, but maybe it's best that it was non-resolving instead.
And the whole Dems Voting For Santorum thing is really lame.

Anyone listen to George Will's remarks about Limbaugh on "This Morning"? It revives, depressingly, the moribund idea that he is a Smart Republican Worth Listening To.

It was a funny line. You've decided he isn't worth listening to, so you don't listen--I mean, you're gauging the reactions of people around him.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 5 March 2012 03:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

Not what I meant...I mean not listen as in you've already decided he's incapable of saying anything smart or funny.

clemenza, Monday, 5 March 2012 03:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

As as fat-free sugarless substitute for Beltway wit he's ok if you ignore his history about being wrong about everything in the last thirty years except Ross Perot and Afghanistan. The HuffPost among others this afternoon revived the notion that Will is the Smart, Adult Conservative thanks to this remark, without qualification. It's worth bringing up because it's as loony a notion as taking Santorum seriously.

I'm just saying that it's okay to credit him with being right about this one thing, and in a way that I thought was quite funny, without implying that you think he's a genius. He says stuff on TV. Sometimes he's good.

clemenza, Monday, 5 March 2012 03:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

George Will says more than enough facepalmingly stupid things that I am no longer decieved by the fact that he employs a larger vocabulary and longer sentences than the average shill for Republican foolishness. He may have a fancy education, but he still talks shit most of the time.

I like Rick Nielsen too. I guess bow ties have a fundamentally overpowering allure for me.

George Will and Newt Gingrich are proof that you can get people to think you're smart through the sheer force of persona.

Frum and Will are saying almost exactly the same thing. Why is Will worthy of derision, while Frum is "letting it rip"?

He is still on the ballot in Pennsylvania and other states, so unless he endorses Romney or makes similar noises, I will presume this 'suspension' is like a trial seperation and there's a chance he could get back in it. The hospitalization of his kid allows this to play out for him either way without blame.

iatee, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 18:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Taking care of your kid is a valid way to go out.

I'm of two minds of this:

1) awesome to have them using up millions on each other before the GE, so the end of that so soon is disappointing

2) the schmuck's entire candidacy was a transmission vector for the continual reinforcement of rightwing horseshit to enter the minds of voters & pundits & media consumers on a daily basis. The more times you travel down certain neural pathways, the deeper the ruts get. Dude promoted the standard victimization and resentment of your 21st-C American Republican, and drew attention to plenty of even-more reactionary fuckheads in the process.

3) should we have a new thread now?
