It’s primary day in Louisiana. Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.) will win handily.
It doesn’t matter.
It will prove once again that when given a choice, evangelical conservatives would rather eat the ass end of a skunk than vote for Mitt Romney.
But it doesn’t matter.
The Republican Party will do what it must do. It will do what it always does. It will nominate the “next guy in line.” In 1988, they nominated Vice President Bush although he faced a challenge from Bob Dole. When Bush lost his re-election try in 1992, the GOP nominated “the next guy in line” — Bob Dole. Clinton beat him like a drum. Republicans started talking about George W. Bush as the apparent nominee for 2000 before Clinton was even sworn in for his second term. Bush faced a stiff challenge from Sen. John McCain. But, of course, Bush won election (so to speak) in 2000 and reelection in 2004. In 2008 when the GOP needed a nominee, they had a wide variety of candidates to choose from. There was the evangelical former Arizona Mike Huckabee. There was the famous movie actor, TV star and former Sen. Fred Thompson. There was this moderate former governor from Massachusetts who was trying real hard to fool everyone into thinking he was a conservative. His name was Mitt Romney. But it was not Mitt Romney’s turn. Nor was it Mike Huckabee’s or Fred Thompson’s turn. It was John McCain’s turn.
Now, it’s Mitt Romney’s turn. So, like they always do, the GOP will nominate the next guy in line.

The longer the race for the Republican nomination goes on the harder it is to find any joy in ridiculing the people who actually think they are going to be President. Every day they seem to go out of their way to show just how out of touch they are with modern day reality. The list of things they have said and their puritanical views make me wonder if they have some sort of serious mental health condition. Why they think anyone other than people who look and think just like them will vote for them is beyond me. Then again George W Bush got elected one and a half times so in all honesty nothing surprises me. It's the United States anything is possible. Although I'm pretty sure Women and Minorities have enough good judgement to not vote for people who talk down to them, want to to take their rights away and at the least don't show any respect for them and at the worst treat them like second hand citizens if they treat them like citizens at all. As an American I'm embarrassed by the whole bunch of them.The longer the race for the Republican nomination goes on the harder it is to find any... more
As all the news networks and journalists scramble to find unique ways to cover the up-coming election, WHACKO-TV's Wolf Douglas decided to do something totally different. He pulls off an interview on the front lawn of the White House. With special permission from the big guy, Douglas interviews a real-live illegal immigrant just yards from the most powerful man on the earth. Well, until the Secret Service got wind of it. What an ending.As all the news networks and journalists scramble to find unique ways to cover the... more

Apparently the G.O.P in all it's wisdom has decided that rather than providing alternatives to programs and legislation that they are against they would rather attempt to fight battles that have all ready been won. Unfortunately for them the targets of their misplaced attention are far more powerful and established than they were when they were fighting to gain equality in the last century. Although there are still issues to be resolved like pay equity and a level playing field when it comes to job advancement Women will never give up what is rightfully theirs because of some imaginary view of what their place in society should be in order to make men happy.I'm not sure how limiting the rights of Women plays into the grand scheme but I'm pretty sure it's not going to help get a Republican elected to anything. Just a thought.Apparently the G.O.P in all it's wisdom has decided that rather than providing... more

What do you say we ignore the mainstream media congratulations of Gov. Romney and say instead that Mitt got his butt kicked tonight in three different arenas by “NOT-Mitt”?
All told, Mitt got 3,647 of the 9,593 votes cast tonight.
MITT ROMNEY — 3,647 — 38%
NOT MITT ROMNEY — 5,946 — 62%

Campaign '92. Remember Paul Tsongas?
US presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has swept the contests for the Republican Party nomination in Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado.
Mr Santorum outperformed longtime front-runner Mitt Romney, who has struggled to connect with the party's conservative base.
Supporters in Missouri heard Mr Santorum declare victory for all those "building the conservative movement".
The eventual nominee will face Barack Obama in November's election.
Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich hardly campaigned in the three states that voted on Tuesday, and did not even appear on Missouri's ballot.US presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has swept the contests for the Republican Party... more
I'd like to think that most people in their right minds, if they've actually taken any time out of living their lives to watch a Republican debate probably has had enough. By now it's pretty apparent what the Republicans stand for and against and although it's fun to some of us who probably pay more attention than is healthy to watch them eat their own the time has come to face facts. Well at least my version of facts based upon hours of reading, watching and actually paying attention to history. Of course if enough people believe something and no one disputes it who's to say what a fact really is anyway? None the less I'll continue. Despite all the in fighting and name calling and their insistence that they they will somehow fix the nation by taking it back in time and that their version of so called "Family Values" is better than the other guys with three wives none of them are going to be President. Unless of course President Obamas secret Socialist, Muslim, Marxist, Communist, Nazi, Alien Overlords from the planet Zebo come to Earth and show us his real birth certificate and the truth is finally revealed. Which of course is entirely possible when you stop and think about all the other made up facts that have been tossed around this election cycle. After all perception is reality and as we all know some people will believe anything. Or so my evil Alien Overlords have said.I'd like to think that most people in their right minds, if they've actually... more
Texas Governor Rick Perry is withdrawing from the Republican presidential race, US media report.
He is expected to hold a news conference at 11:00 (1600 GMT) in South Carolina to announce his exit.
Mr Perry is tipped to endorse former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for the Republican presidential nomination.
When Mr Perry entered the race in August, he briefly shot to the front of the pack before gaffes and poor debate performances set him back.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is the front-runner in the state-by-state race for the Republican Party's nomination to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama for the White House this November.
But recent opinion polls have shown a resurgent Mr Gingrich gaining on Mr Romney.
After finishing fifth in Iowa's first-in-the-nation nominating contest, Mr Perry briefly reconsidered his campaign before ploughing on.
He skipped campaigning in New Hampshire to focus on the conservative Republican state of South Carolina, but his message failed to take off in that state.Texas Governor Rick Perry is withdrawing from the Republican presidential race, US... more

Virginia has been a tough ballot to crack for several GOP candidates because the state requires campaigns to collect signatures from at least 10,000 registered voters. Romney and Paul were the only ones who made the ballot for the March 6 primary.
Perry sued, and was later joined in the lawsuit by Gingrich, Huntsman and Santorum. But on Friday, a federal judge in Richmond refused to add them to the ballot, saying the candidates should have challenged Virginia's primary qualifying rules earlier.

So far the Presidential Primary season has been filled with excitement. Well that is, if you like vile opinions, vitriolic speeches and vacuous statements. WHACKO-TV put the full force of its news team on duty for New Hampshire. INSURRECTION TWENTY TWELVE, as we call it, is a bent look at straight men trying to win the nomination of the Republican Party. We spared no expense and were not underwritten by any Super PAC; that we know of? We are on our way to South Carolina now for some low country barbeque. Until then, enjoy the recap.So far the Presidential Primary season has been filled with excitement. Well that is,... more
One of the more hysterical asides of the Republican circus act, better known as the GOP presidential primary season, is watching the non-Mittens candidates fall all over themselves as they try to take the seemingly intractable, life-size Ken Doll/Human/Alien hybrid down. While no one is thrilled with Mitt Romney, least of all the voters, his competition still can’t seem to topple him.

Gingrich, as well as Texas Gov. Rick Perry, did not meet the state's requirement of 10,000 signatures and, therefore, did not qualify for the ballot, the Virginia GOP said via Twitter.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul did qualify.
Virginia requires candidates to submit petitions with 10,000 signatures from registered Virginia voters. Additionally, 400 signatures must come from voters in each of the state's eleven congressional districts. Virginia holds its Republican primary on March 6.
