Santorum Froths in New Hampshire: Gay Marriage Boner

So Rick Santorum has dug himself in deeper! And also blew it as he was speaking before a crowd of college Republicans in Concord.

Today’s was one of series of rapid-fire, soon-to-be-patented “Santorum boners,” which have slipped from the candidate’s lips. On Wednesday night, he lamely tried to explain away the

make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money

comment he made in Iowa by telling John King that

In fact, I’m pretty confident I didn’t say ‘black.’ I started to say a word and sort of mumbled it and changed my thought. I don’t recall saying black. No one in that audience heard me say that.

He “started to say a word.” What word? Black? Blighted? Blowsy? Bleached? Blond? Bleary-eyed? (Oh wait, that’s a hyphenate!)

And today the ever frothy Santorum, in front of a crowd of college Republicans, drew jeers when he compared gay marriage to polygamy.

Are we saying everyone should have the right to marry? So anyone can marry anyone else? So anybody can marry several people?

There is a big difference between two people marrying, no matter what the gender combo, and polygamy. Like an extra person difference. And actually anybody can marry several people.

You just have to un-marry the current spouse first. Like Newt Gingrich.

Frothy has begun his “didn’t say that, nuh-un” media tour. Along with denying having said “black” when that is very clearly exactly what he said, he parsed his ‘man-on-dog’ comment the other day to make it seem that he was saying the ‘homosexual marriage’ (as he calls it) was NOT like man-on-dog.

Completely inverting the meaning of the words that got him in trouble with Dan Savage. Tape here.

For a word he “started to say” and “sort of mumbled,” it sure as hell sounds like a loud, clear “black” to me. Maybe we should ask the racists folks in the audience who applauded the remark.

Best thing about Islam, well for guys anyhow, is that you can have a 15 min marriage, and then a divorce, just by saying so.

“So anybody can marry several people?”

Hmmm. Interesting question. Let’s ask Willard M. Romney what he thinks about that.

Better still, ask the Mexican branch of his family.

Santorum is gross. I think he is a dumbass punk. I also think he is likely guilty of T.M.I.
That say’s a lot about modern politics. Lie and hide who you really are and what you really mean in order to gain power.
Except for Ron Paul.

“…Santorum will be on the lips…” Do the Santorum PR crew not know about teh Google…?


Margaret | Friday January 6, 2012 07:55 pm 9

I’m actually a bit astonished that the Not Willard crowd actually turned to ol’ Frothy in the end. Too bad for his campaign that the medias’ scrutiny is on him now…

Look. In my view, ya gotta give the guy some credit. He was an also-ran for the longest time. Couldn’t raise money. So he had to spend what he did have very wisely. So give him credit. He didn’t blow his wad too soon.

@SantorumPR is a parody. And quite the lulzy one at that.

A worthy opponent improves the race. McCain can plug Romney all he wants. It will only increase my spunk.

We always need a Jesus candidate. Every morning, I say, Lord fill me with your hard teachings, so I can spread them on the trail as I go.

And many, many others.

These people are having a very hard time hiding their blatant racism and bigotry.

You can read it even in their faces. Like McConnell. You know what he is thinking from the very first but he is too chicken shit to actually say it to anyone.

“We got to get that damn n&@@$% out of the White House. How the hell did he get elected anyway. Those damn n!&&#@ loving liberals, that’s how.”

Of course you can also really know what the Obambots are thinking to. “Ha..we got a black man elected president. Stick that up your buts you redneck racist clowns.”

Sigh…it’s all the same.

OT

Best laugh of the day.

Strafor is one of those premium foreign policy ‘intelligence’ for high dollar subscription services that was recently hacked for its clients financial info. I won’t say how I got access without paying, but I found the content mediocre and stopped scanning it after a couple or three visits.

Just got an email from them (11p ET Friday, no less) offering all their premium content for free and asking how great they were at responding to their troubles. IIRC, the attack was a week or more ago, and I think they’re not quite up & running yet.

Gotcha.

saw a guy in The City Beautiful today with a Ron Paul t-shirt. First one I’ve seen. We’ll see.

Unfortunately that’s true. The second greatest thing that is broken about our system after the money that governs the system is the way politics and policy have become a spectator sport.

Yea, we now all know Obama is Kenyan or somethin’ unAmerican… maybe a commie from mars. (snark)

It was just easier to reply to you than go all the way back up the comments for the source of the redneck thing.

Barack Obama is not un-American, he is in fact uniquely American. As the son of a caucasian woman and a Kenyan university student, he’s a great example of the melting pot some in this nation used to strive to be. I wasn’t being derisive, just pointing out that he isn’t descended from slaves.

If you’re talking about a scat specimen – it’s 2 words.
If you’re talking about Speaker Boenyhour – it’s one word.

Gaud I miss the honesty of the right wing like that Agnew with his “Commie pinko fagots” remarks.

That tweet up top isn’t real is it? Is it?

The main case against Santorum, is that he is a war criminal.

Yeah buddy, I understand that. The primary reason that I am on this wrong thread is that you ‘cool’ people who belong are right about a few important things.
Imagine a world where we could agree to disagree on that which separates us and agree to agree on what we have in common.
It’s either that or we continue to play russian roulette until the planet becomes entirely like North Korea.
That is the end game B.T.W.
