A note worth remembering: You can’t spell Romney without M.O.N.E.Y.

Election Poll: Which Candidate For President Has The Small-Business Vote?

Via: Huffington Post

So which candidate is currently the most popular among small-business owners? Manta, an online community of small businesses, set out to answer that question in a survey released today.

Questions in the survey of 1,022 business owners, conducted earlier this month, included:

– “What political issue will have the biggest impact on your business?” (tax policy topped the list, with access to credit and unemployment not far behind)

– “How satisfied are you with the field of potential 2012 presidential candidates?” (54 percent of respondents are not satisfied)

And perhaps most notably, the survey also asked, “Who do you plan to vote for in the 2012 presidential election?”

Find out which presidential candidate (including the incumbent, President Obama) has thus far captured the small-business vote, according to Manta’s survey:


The following is a complete list of the most favored political candidates among small-business owners, with the most favored candidate at number one, according to Manta’s survey:
1. Barack Obama (34%)
2. Mitt Romney (17%)
3. Ron Paul (14%)
4. Rick Santorum (10%)
5. Newt Gingrich (9%)
6. Other (7%)
7. Rick Perry (3%)
8. Jon Huntsman (1%)
personal thought:
Don’t believe the bull-shit from ALL the GOP candidates about how the adminsitration is hurting small business with regulations and taxes; it is just not true.

Sarah Palin Under the Impression That Chris Christie Wears ‘Panties’

Via: Wonkette

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the supposed-to-have-run of the Republican party, declared Newt Gingrich to be an “embarrassment” to the party during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press this past weekend, so as usual a Republican is embarrassed by America, since Newt, you know, won the South Carolina primary with many more votes than John McCain won in 2008.

To this remark, Fox News loiterer Sarah Palin condescendingly forgave Christie immediately — “Poor Chris. That was a rookie mistake” — but at the same time suggested that the New Jersey governor was getting his “panties in a wad,” though this is probably a requirement/side effect of joining the Romney campaign. Romney himself prefers long chastity underwear, worn inside out, with the buttons on the inside to make access by others more difficult.

Classic Sarah Palin style: mad-libbing by substituting a perfectly suitable word/phrase like BOXER BRIEFS or KNICKERS or TIGHTY WHITEYS with another, less fortunate word, PANTIES.

Still, such a Mama Bear even while mauling her prey:

You know, sometimes, if your candidate loses in just one step along this path, as was the case when Romney lost to Newt the other night — and, of course, Romney is Chris Christie’s guy — well, you kind of get your panties in a wad, and you may say things that you regret later. And I think that that’s what Chris Christie did.

Ralph ‘evidence, who needs evidence’ Shortey (R-OK) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Wonkette

What’s in your anusburger, Oklahoma, besides cow rectums, sawdust and glue?

It can be hard to tell!

Have you ever, as a result, worried to yourself, what if there are also ground up aborted human fetuses in here and I don’t even realize it?

Oklahoma state Senator Ralph Shortey — his real name! — worries so fervently about this possibility that he went and introduced a bill banning the use of aborted fetuses as an ingredient in “food or any other product intended for human consumption.” You know, JUST IN CASE, GUYS. (Dog food, on the other hand, is fine.)


Here is the entire text of Shortey’s bill, which we pray is the last remaining evidence of human civilization when aliens finally discover Earth:

No person or entity shall manufacture or knowingly sell food or any other product intended for human consumption which contains aborted human fetuses in the ingredients or which used aborted human fetuses in the research or development of any of the ingredients.

OH and also this award-winning soundbite from Shortey, who may or may not have shot three syringes full of psilocybin into his eyeballs immediately before he talked to this KRMG news reporter:

“There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors,” says Shortey.

He admits he has NO EVIDENCE that this fetus food nightmare is currently happening in Oklahoma or anywhere else, but then again there’s no evidence that an invisible giant lizard isn’t responsible every time Ralph Shortey’s car keys are definitely not where he left them last time. So there.
