    I believe that life begins at the moment the SaranWrap fails!!!

    • digitalatheist

      Or as MAD magazine put it years ago–in my misspent youth–life begins the moment the boy unhooks the girl’s bra.

    “EX Speaker Gingrich?”

    “How DARE YOU ask such a question!! I’m APPALLED that you would ask such a DISGUSTING question during a Presidential debate! I’m SO SICK of the ELITE ACADEMIC MEDIA manipulating the democratic process to serve and promote their SAUL ALINSKY-WORSHIPPING, GODLESS, SECULAR AGENDA that is a THREAT to GOD’S PLAN for a REPUBLICAN AMERICA! You can learn all about it in SEVERAL OF MY BOOKS! Including my latest, “Winning Through Constant Yelling in Righteous Indignation.” $29.95 hardbound on Amazon.” (holds up a copy)

    “The problem with America is there are too many PESKY REPORTERS and too many YOUTUBE VIDEOS of me STICKING MY FOOT IN MY MOUTH!” (puff puff) “BUY MY BOOKS! BUY MY BOOKS!”

    Santorum also doesn’t believe in Universities, those places contain evil secularists!!!!!1!!!!!

  • Rian Lemmer

    I object! Paul would answer ‘Wars’ or “fiat dollars’

    • Asf

      Indeed. When the heck has Ron Paul said this, let alone made “roads” a major issue????

    Bring back PALIN! Hard to believe it’s come to that! She would win hands down.

      What? No.

    • Alex

      I support that. She poisoned McCain’s candidacy back in 2008, and she can do it again, dammit!

      *screams like a little girl* NO! Watching politics without her is painful enough.

       Palin who?

    I was expecting Santorum’s reply to be homosexuals; maybe Dan Savage.

    I’ve been married for 28 years, no need for birth control for a while, or any republican.

    I have watched most of the debates. It’s the first time I do that with republican debates but this year it was just too good to resist. 

    It is amazing to me that the Republican Party was unable to field anyone more appealing than the current crop. The only exception was Huntsman, whom while a Mormon seems at least to be somewhat sane. At least not completely batshit crazy.
    I used to think that Obama chances fro re-election were not very good, but now I am bullish about him.

    I still wish Gary Johnson would have had a chance.

    I’d love for you good folks to hear something by my pastor titled, “I believe that I cannot believe.”

    It gets good about 10 minutes into it.

      You lost me at “by my pastor”.  Why don’t you write a summary for us instead of linking to droning nonsense.

    • purone

      And it’s horrible 10 seconds into it.

  • Gwen

    Ron Paul wants to end government as we know it, and put the whole thing in our uteri!
