Crude, derivative and about as funny as acute pancreatitis. I'd recommend not giving up the day job, but then I think it's quite clear that you don't actually have one.

Things Ron Paul Supporters Do Well:

- Have a strong showing in straw polls.

- Make their presence known in meaningless primaries (when the nomination is already decided. See: 2008 U.S. Presidential Primaries)

- Create funny ads.

- Internet Pros.


Yep, that's about it. Thanks, guys!

And what do Santorum supporters do well again?

In order, what I'm imagining is something (a) tragically stunted, (b) vaguely perverse, (c) indiscriminate and plotless, and (d) dolefully reactionary.

It sounds like you just wrote a question for the SAT.

That's a possibility.

Then question is, however, why should we give a sh*t ?

He'll be a lot more friendly for civil liberties at home many on the left clamor about. Quit buying what the mainstream media says about him.

I was responding to the thread title.

This goes to show why it is a bad idea to obsess about a politician.

More from the same thread as Gustaf's.

If Romney wins in 2012, he will be reelected in 2016. All presidents who defeated an incumbent have gone on to serve full terms.  In 2020, the youngest "50's kids" would be 61--pretty old to be president.  

Carter? Benjamin Harrison?

Carter isn't a good example, he was running against Nixon's ghost, not Ford.  As for Benjamin Harrison, I am referring to only post-WWII elections.

Here's another relationship that will blow your mind - no President with a "J" in his name has ever served two full terms.

Well, I am only referring to the post-Jacksonian era. Jackson and the five preceding Presidents were all Js, and four of them including Jackson himself served two full terms. But ever since, the letter has been cursed.

And in case you cite William Jefferson Clinton - I'm only referring to first and last names.

His haters have always been far more obsessed than I. I'll admit when there is a good Santorum joke but you post every little sad attempt at humor in one of the comedy threads or here. I know, I know..."LOL 18 POINTS!!!" but that's only your weak attempt to cover up the seething anger you have over the fact that he was in elected office for sixteen years. I guess whatever the guy did to you that gets you so angry didn't resonate soon enough. Feel free to share whatever that was, by the way. Spill coffee on you by accident? Fender bender? I know there must be something. After all, you got up and ran away to Ohio!

yo, allow me to demonstrate for our unwitty and gratuitously challenged KEmperor, for he is a tad rusty after being away for several years:

So your argument is that species just evolve to a certain degree and that's it?

what I am saying is that if you take a bacterium and bastardize the heck out of it over 100 million generations, it's offspring are still going to be nothing more than a bunch of single-celled bacteria bastards.  It aint gonna become multi-celled, much less sprout arms and legs.  Now, once in a while one of those bastards might be paled skinned and red haired, but that doesnt mean it aint also a bastard...heck we gots one of those right here on the forum.

no need to thank me for providing an example

Wall Street Aristocracy Got $1.2 Trillion From Fed

By Bradley Keoun and Phil Kuntz - Aug 22, 2011

The largest borrower, Morgan Stanley (MS), got as much as $107.3 billion, while Citigroup took $99.5 billion and Bank of America $91.4 billion, according to a Bloomberg News compilation of data obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, months of litigation and an act of Congress.

Almost half of the Fedís top 30 borrowers, measured by peak balances, were European firms.

Which is why we shouldn't tax them, either, amirite CARL?

Don't you think that's a bit of an odd question to ask random strangers? Are you from the 1950s and on hunt for cottagers in order to prosecute them? In which case I'm going to have to disappoint you; I'm not really into that type of thing.

Do you think public toilets are better than the private toilet you access on a daily basis?

That may just be an even stranger question. So strange, actually, that I have no sneering come-back line ready to throw at it. Bizarre. Are you on ketamine?
