First Republican straw poll of the season and it’s a doozy!

Lawd have mercy, what a selection of Republicans, most right, many way right, to choose from! Politico of course has the 411, see the bottom of the post for how the email alert words the same information:

Romney won with 35 percent, beating second-place finisher Ron Paul by 24 points in the WMUR-ABC News straw poll of members of the state Republican Party. In third place was former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who won 8 percent—just one point ahead of Sarah Palin, who drew 7 percent.

*jump to*

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann won 5 percent, pizza mogul Herman Cain took 4 percent, and Santorum won 3 percent—tied with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, Indiana Rep. Mike Pence and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

The Half-Term Governor from AK did better than I expected and Pence the fuckwit did worse.Santorum and Batshit Bachmann should of gotten nothing, but there is no accounting for some folks tastes is there? Now, the news alert I got in my email put it this way:

The full results from the WMUR/ABC/N.H. Republican Party presidential straw poll are: Mitt Romney with 35% of the 273 ballots cast, Ron Paul with 11%, Tim Pawlenty with 8% and Sarah Palin with 7%. The remaining results: Michele Bachmann and Jim DeMint with 5% each; Herman Cain with 4%; Chris Christie, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Mitch Daniels and Mike Huckabee with 3% each; Rudy Giuliani, Judd Gregg, Gary Johnson and “other” with 2% each; and Donald Trump and Haley Barbour with 1% each. Jon Huntsman Jr. and John Thune were on the ballot but received no votes.(emphasis mine)

I did laugh my brown ass off over Thune’s returns or lack thereof. I howled over Haley Barbour’s one percent. 😉 All, in all, the actual Politico writeup seemed much kinder and gentler to the assholes in the bunch, wouldn’t you say?

Rick Santorum – Biggest Idiot this side of the Milky Way.

Ricky wants to be President. That will never happen of course, but to that end he continues to open his piehole and this week was no exception. Playing the race card, Santorum waxed ignorant as is his usual. The following pov is from a rightwing site, the NationalJournal, from their Hotline on Call section:

Referring to Obama’s comment during the 2008 campaign that determining when human life begins is “above my pay grade,” Santorum tees off on Obama, saying: “Just about everything else in the world, he’s willing to have the government do, but he can’t answer that basic question, which is not a debatable issue at all. … The question is — and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer — ‘Is that human life a person under the Constitution?’ And Barack Obama says no.”

Then, Santorum ices the cake: “Well, if that human life is not a person, then — I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, ‘No, we’re going to decide who are people and who are not people.'”

This over-the-top statement is only the most recent from Santorum, whose 18-point drubbing in his 2006 re-election bid was attributed in part to a string of controversial remarks about gender roles and hot-button social issues like gay marriage and abortion.

Political observers following Santorum’s all-but-official campaign have witnessed in recent months a more subdued and calculated Santorum, leading many to wonder if the once-fiery socially conservative senator has turned a corner and learned from the plethora of self-inflicted mistakes caused by his seemingly careless tongue. It appears their question has been answered.

If you like Sarah Palin, you will adore Rick Santorum. We on the left, will have hours of yucks and laughter, not to mention plenty to write that shows how ridiculous the religious right is and how little they have in common with the moderates and the independent voters in our nation. There is a video on NJ’s site but really, do we need to watch it here? Do you seriously want to ruin your lunch?

Welcome back Ricky you sick fuck!
