Late Night FDL: Cats, Kittens, Mittens and Santorum

 

Let’s face it, we know the Internet was invented to showcase cats, and we may have reached the absolute end of the Internet with this latest entry into politics. However, Hank the Cat may face some obstacles in his Senate run, because well, you have to be (technically) human to be elected. Rombot: Barely human.

However Hank is unlikely to cough up a hairball over the separation of church and state, something that makes Rick Santorum throw up. What else might make Santorum spew puke? But now, like a dog, Frothy Mix Rick wants to eat the words he vomited about JFK, telling Laura Ingraham:

I wish I had that particular line back.

He went on to say:

I think we need to have a free exercise of religion in this country and it’s important for those First Amendment freedoms to be alive and well in America.

So that means he’d be cool with an endorsement from Druids, Wiccans and Aleister Crowely’s Ordo Templi Orientis? What about the Temple of Set and the Church of Satan? Just checking. ‘Cause you know, free exercise of religion means freedom for all religions to exercise. And some of them exercise in the nude.

Meanwhile in Michigan, Democrats have been voting for Santorum against Romney in the primary. Good strategy or bad?

Them too! Religious Freedom for all. Though THIS might upset some folks.

Oh, if only Hank were on the ballot here in Georgia for our open primary. I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. I think I may have a wiser kitteh or two, but they realize that politics is not for them.

We want to toss as large a wrench into the Republican works as we can, so we’re torn between voting for The Frothy Mixture and Pig Newton. Decisions, decisions, decisions….

The Republican clown car has gotten all the media it rates. Enough already.

Even bobo is apologizing at this point.

Crap! That pisses ME off. Though probably for different reasons that it will with plastic talking heads.

How about the endorsement of the Ancient Old Ones?

With Santorum on the ticket, it could well be.

Cthulhu for always!

“Good strategy or bad?”

I voted in the last republican primary in Texas so I could vote against Rick Perry. Kay Bailey ain’t great but she would have been better than Rick.

Democrats love that “lesser of two evils” strategy and with no democratic primary, I think voting is better than not voting.

I may go for some RP this time around.

If there were not some important races down ticket here in Montana, I might do that. You do not declare a party here, just ask for whichever ballot you want when you get to the polls (one primary date for everyone).

True. He actually has a good chance of seizing some delegates here, if he is still on the ticket by our almost the last primary in the nation (I guess Utah wanted to be the clincher).

Even if he didn’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell and Cthulhu was his opponent….

I agree. He just hits all the major rightwing demographics here in Montana. Bear in mind that the Libertarians and Constitution Party are regularly on the ballot here.

To make it worse, I went seeking when I had my apostasy at 13 and started reading religious texts and descriptions quite widely. I have read the Bible, the Koran, the Book of Mormon, the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, the Upanashads, the Tibetan and Egyptian Books of the Dead, the Prose and Poetic Eddas and the Nibelungen, Assyrian and Babylonian mythology (including Gilgamesh), Bhuddist and Taoist scripture, and a whole lot of other mores esoteric stuff.

Are you in the eastern or western part of Montana? The western part’s almost sane, IIRC — it’s the eastern part where the “Justus Township” nutters hang out.


DrDick | Tuesday February 28, 2012 09:09 pm 51

And on that esoteric note, I need to toddle off, as I must lecture tomorrow morning on the origins of modern humanity. Take care all.


Phoenix Woman | Tuesday February 28, 2012 09:11 pm 52

So, if not for the sweater vest, you couldn’t tell the difference.

To be fair, Santorum doesn’t look like a victim of fetal alcohol syndrome, whereas Bush Jr. and his small head always made me wonder if Bar couldn’t put down the martini shaker even for a moment when she was carrying him.

I am in western Montana, specifically in the People’s Republic of Missoula, the lone shining beacon of sanity in the state. Sadly there are a lot of whackaloons all over the state. The militias and Freemen are big just south of here in Ravali County and the white supremacists have been flocking to Kalispell in Flathead County just north of here.

Been getting blasted with repub calls this cycle here in MI. Never had that before. Got one of those robo calls today with lots of static in it that said send a message to our MI Gov that endorsed Romney and go vote for Santorum cause Dems weren’t having a primary. Thought the call was from Dems till I heard on CNN that it was Santorum’s robo call. Anyways, I thought that was a good idea and 3 of us did it. They had 3 ballots for us to choose from, Dem that didn’t have repub primary on it, a Repub one that did, and an Independant. I asked them what about my privacy voting rights. Dah, we don’t have any in a primary. I took the Repub ballot and still got to vote for a Dem in our District race.
