Santorum loses his cool


In all fairness, the short clip that shows Santorum bash Romney as the worst Republican candidate may not be complete.

Does that warrant the temper tantrum he throws in the clip above?

I’d like to know if the press is taking the quote out of context completely, and where I can find the transcript to make my own assessment, but apparently the journalists in the clip don’t give a shit about that.

See you next Tuesday Nooner: Democrats for Santorum


About the video:

Uploaded by  on Feb 27, 2012

Democrats: Vote Santorum. For now. Really enjoy it.

To any who oppose such tactics on moral grounds, one might ask if they’re part of the same group of people who oft bemoan the passive, compromise-y tactics of the current administration. Be the change you’ve been waiting for, and so forth.

To those who say Santorum is an actual threat in national polls because Rasmussen has him up by three amongst left-handed seniors or whatever: whatever. Careful observers will note that in a field of candidates this jaw-droppingly lame, everybody gets a taste of sweet sweet candy–if only for a moment. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/26/herman-cain-2012-primary-polls_n_103…

Foot juggling that will knock your socks off


Prepare yourself for the amazing talent that calls herself Selyna Bogino, in an act called, “Bamberg Zaubert.”

Everybody needs a talent, right?

I watched the video in high def at full screen, and got a little hot and bothered … if you know what I mean.

Speaking of talent … In other news, the thought of separating church and state nauseates Rick Santorum. As long as the church that isn’t getting separated is the one of his choice, stuff as much allah, prayer mats and/or madrasas in the government as you can!

Right!!!

Right?

Where are you going?

See this story for details.

I don’t know about you, but after reading that about Santorum, Selyna Bogino has a better chance of getting elected the next president of the United States. How can a man, who doesn’t want the future of America going to college, who wants everyone to wait for marriage for sex, who thinks Barack Obama’s brand of Christianity is phony, possibly become the next president (president!) of the United States.

Santorum: Obama “A Snob” For Wanting Everyone To Go To College


Santorum called Obama a “snob” because he said he wants everyone to go to college. Santorum says that a college education means that students will become indoctrinated by liberal professors.

As if the first 18 years of a kid’s life isn’t enough time for parents and churches to take ahold of a brain.

And what happened to yours truly, who went to a conservative Presbyterian college … and turned out liberal?

It’s not Santorum I’m worried about here, either. It’s the audience who is clapping for such insanity.

Santorum’s opening his mouth, we should clap!

Imagine that: education = a bad thing.

Don’t get smart, ya’ll, that’ll lead to godless hedonism. Stay all dumb and shit so you can raise your stupid kids right.

It’s more like Santorum doesn’t want an educated constituency. Allah forbid any of them knew how to think for themselves.

Scary.

I am the 62 percent


In this article from CBS, Rick Santorum reportedly said these words:

Because you know 62 percent of children who enter college with a faith conviction leave without it.

Finally, I’m part of the majority.

Santorum blames the absence of Judeo-Christian teachings for kids leaving college without Yeshua in tow.

I not only had 12 years of intense, evangelical training through Christian elementary to high schooling, churching, and upbringing, I also went to a Presbyterian College with a very clear Christian message.

I was the poster child of Christian indoctrination that Santorum hails as the correct way to raise children.

Santorum doesn’t want people to get an education?

He thinks putting children in churches and Christian elementary schools isn’t indoctrination? What shallow amount of child psychology does Santorum need to understand the fallacies of his reasoning?

I’ve heard this before from conservatives: education ruins belief.

How about that.

Santorum also said:

The indoctrination that occurs in American universities is one of the keys to the left holding and maintaining power in America. And it is indoctrination. If it was the other way around, the ACLU would be out there making sure that there wasn’t one penny of government dollars going to colleges and universities, right?

At Skepticamp Chicago, Jamie Bernstein talked about Probabilities. I bet the probability formula for a tried-and-true Christian graduating college from a Christian university as a soon-to-be atheist is all kinds of improbable. But there’s a formula for it, and I don’t know how to use it.

 

Dan Savage sings the hits


Dan Savage speaking at IWU

From this article at Mtv.com, Dan Savage says:

Well, we’ve been seeing this throughout the campaign, where Bachmann and Romney and Perry and Santorum, they’ve all been challenged not by activists or gay organizations, but by individual voters. … Increasingly LGBT people are empowered, not ashamed,” he said. “They’re attacking us, and we’re confronting them. We’re holding them accountable and calling them on their lies and their ‘pious baloney,’ to borrow Newt Gingrich’s phrase. America is waking up to the fact that we’re not bogeymen, and we’re not coming to do any harm, and that we’re your daughters and sons and neighbors, sometimes your parents, your co-workers, friends, colleagues. The Republican party, in this desperate [nod] to its dying evangelical base, is just ramping up the homophobia, and they’re doing themselves real long-term damage.

“What’s interesting is that, you look at who’s been doing the most hate speech: Bachmann? She’s out. Herman Cain? He’s out. Perry? He’s all but out. Santorum? He’s running fourth, he’s trailing even in conservative South Carolina,” Savage continued.

“It’s not winning them the election anymore. It’s not 1992; Pat Buchanan can’t get up and give a ‘gay rights never, family values forever’ speech at the Republican National Convention anymore. Times have changed.
