“Quote of the Day”

Via: MSNBC ‘Lean Forward’

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said “ABSOLUTELY” he would consider another presidential run. Speaking from the Republican convention in Tampa, Fla., the Republican governor did not hesitate when Chuck ‘the Greek drawf’ Todd, host of Daily Rundown, asked him if he would ever consider doing so again.

“Oh absolutely. There’s a long time until 2016 and a lot of good things can happen,” he said.

– Governor Rick Perry (TX)

“Quote of the Day”

“Now I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company Bain Capital with all the jobs that they killed, I’m sure he was worried that he’d run out of pink slips.

There is something inherently wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business and I happen to think that’s indefensible.

If you’re a victim of Bain Capital’s downsizing, it’s the ultimate insult for Mitt Romney to come to South Carolina and tell you he feels your pain, BECAUSE HE CAUSED IT.”

Govenor Rick Perry (R-TX)

Texas Republican Party Platform Ends Call To Criminalize Gay Marriage

Via: Huffington Post

The Texas Republican Party adopted a new platform this past weekend reaffirming the party’s opposition to same-sex marriage and pornography, while ending calls for criminalizing both practices.

The party platform, adopted at a convention in Fort Worth, differs from the 2010 platform that would have made it a felony to issue a same-sex marriage license or perform a same-sex wedding. But the Texas GOP continues to oppose marriage equality.

In addition, the party dialed back its 2010 call to criminalize pornography and strip clubs in the state.

The platform, which lays out the party’s principles, is adopted every two years.

UPDATE: taking ‘indecent liberties with a corn-dog’ was also decriminalized.

Rick Perry (R-TX) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day, possibly Century’

Via: MSNBC.com

“Three and a half years, nearly 100 rounds of golf. Barack Obama has exploded the debt in this country. He has passed a stimulus program that grew government and not the economy. He socialized health care and he armed Mexican drug cartels.

ADMIT IT, America, 2008 was our national ‘oops’ moment”

Mystery Senator Hints at Mass GOP Suicide if Romney Loses Michigan

Via: Wonkette

Republican voters have had an entire year now give or take to make up their minds about who they want as their candidate for president, yet they continue to gnash their teeth and weep blood a year later like some game show contestant given two minutes to stare at a row of identical boxes and correctly choose the one with the prize (a bag of poop) inside it or be electrocuted with an anal probe.

Which is why a crusty gym sock like Rick Santorum is somehow now completely tied with a rectangular dildo like Mitt Romney in the Mitt-bot’s home state of Michigan, and why Republican leaders are secretly plotting some kind of mass suicide ritual known as “choosing any random other candidate less insane than the idiots already in the race to go and join the race at this late date” if Mitt can’t seal up the nomination post haste.

One anonymous panicky U.S. Senator confirms this, according to ABC News!

~

A prominent Republican senator just told me that if Romney can’t win in Michigan, the Republican Party needs to go back to the drawing board and convince somebody new to get into the race.

“If Romney cannot win Michigan, we need a new candidate,” said the senator, who has not endorsed anyone and requested anonymity.

The senator believes Romney will ultimately win in Michigan but says he will publicly call for the party to find a new candidate if he does not.

“We’d get killed,” the senator said if Romney manages to win the nomination after he failed to win the state in which he grew up.

On the campaign trail in Michigan, Mitt Romney listed what he loves about his birth state:

– the people

– the cars

– the lakes

– the air

and even,

-the trees; “The trees are just the right height,” he said, without explanation

Yeah. It’s all playing into Sarah Palin’s master plan.

It seems like only yesterday, Rick ‘good-hair’ Perry was suppose be the GOP ‘mystery’ candidate.

If they ‘beg’, would he accept the nomination?

oh, probably

Support for Mitt Romney VANISHES

Via: Think Progress

Rick Santorum decisively swept all three primary contests last night, shattering the myth of inevitability that presumed front-runner Mitt Romney has tried to construct. While the vote in Missouri assigned no delegates, the results there and in Colorado and Minnesota nonetheless show a clear refutation of Romney in states that will be battlegrounds in the general election.

But there is even more troubling news for Romney. As ThinkProgress has noted, Republican turnout has been down in virtually every primary so far, suggesting a lack of enthusiasm for Romney and the rest of the GOP field. But last night’s results are far more severe. Turnout was not just down but down tremendously, and in many places, Romney was unable to capture anywhere close to as many votes as he won in 2008.

Romney won Colorado with 60 percent of the vote four years ago, and its demographics favored the candidate, but this year, Romney won just 34.9 percent of the vote, coming 6 points shy of Santorum.

In Minnesota, which Romney won with 41 percent of the vote in 2008, he won just 16.9 percent last night — coming in third behind Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).

And in Missouri, Romney was down slightly, from 29 percent in 2008 to 25.3 percent last night.

Clearly, the winner yesterday was President Obama.

RE-ELECT Obama/Biden in 2012!

The Best Totally Wrong Predictions of the Republican Primary

Via: Atlantic Wire

There are many crazy-ass predictions, but my favorite:

Prediction: Perry is unstoppable.

Prognosticator: CNN’s James Moore

Date: August 31, 2011

Quote: “Perry (see above) will win the Iowa caucuses easily because Michele Bachmann will be running out of money and will have scared the party leadership. In New Hampshire, he will at least finish close to Romney, and in South Carolina he will affirm his run by winning the delegates necessary to seal up the nomination. Perry will take South Carolina by a margin wider than his credibility gap. Romney has the money and the infrastructure (and faltering judgment) to hang tough until Super Tuesday on March 6, but Perry will easily pocket wins in Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma and Tennessee. With the nomination wrapped up, Perry will then start talking about jobs and the economy instead of Jesus.”

Reality: Perry came in fifth in Iowa, sixth in New Hampshire, and dropped out before South Carolina.

Rick Perry Bungeeing His Way to ZERO, But CNN Letting Him Debate Anyway

Via: Wonkette

CNN decided Wednesday to let Rick Perry into its upcoming Republican debate in South Carolina January 19, despite the fact that he technically doesn’t qualify for it, since his polling average is not that much higher than the average of people who aren’t even in the race anymore. “Oh but he’s fun!,” they cry, and this isn’t so shocking from the network that tries to please everybody by pleasing no one.

“He has met the criteria,” a CNN spokesperson told Talking Points Memo, and when TPM followed up asking what exact criteria that was, they didn’t not “immediately,” and may not ever, receive clarification. CNN’s eligibility requirements for the debate are pretty clear-cut, and Perry just doesn’t make them.

Since it will be awhile until we can experience the anti-anxiety and comedic power of Perry’s performance, TPM also has this delightful slideshow of “things that are less steep than Rick Perry’s drop in the polls.”

Specifically, the roofs of historic buildings, with Perry “posing” in front of those buildings, looking like the confused paper doll that he so often appears to be. [TPM]

Evangelicals Consider Pushing Gingrich, Perry To Drop Out And Back Santorum

Via: Huff9ngton Post

A prominent evangelical Christian said Friday that if Rick Santorum continues to surge in the polls and does well in New Hampshire and South Carolina, Christian leaders are planning to ask Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry to drop out and get behind the former Pennsylvania senator.

There is real concern that ‘Mormon’ [Mitt] Romney will win without having to face one concentrated effort of a conservative challenger,” Richard Land, one of the most well-known Southern Baptist leaders in the nation, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

“What I hear conservatives saying is we need to keep talking about this and we need to let Gingrich and Santorum and Perry continue to make their case, but at some point, earlier rather than later, we need to try to unite all of the social conservative forces around one candidate and have this great debate that so many people want to see between Romney and the non-Romney,” said Land, whose official title is president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.

Q: Assuming it’ll be Obama vs Romney, will there be a third-party ‘Jeebus’ candidate?

A: Oh hell, yeah!
