- 9 point lead for Obama over Romney in the latest WaPo/ABC News Poll source
» It’s the largest lead either candidate has held over one another since The Washington Post/ABC News started polling Romney-Obama match-ups in April of last year. It’s also a huge reversal from just a month…
“Santorum often touts his grandfather’s flight from Italy “to escape fascism,” but he has neglected to publicly mention their close ties with the Italian Communist Party. “Rick’s grandfather Pietro was a liberal man and he understood right away what was happening in Italy,” Mrs. Santorum told Oggi. ‘He was anti-fascist to the extreme, and the political climate in 1925 was stifling so he left for America.’”
This is a win-win for everyone involved. Huntsman gets to enjoy some of Gingrich’s residual press coverage, and Gingrich gets to debate a candidate who actually knows something about foreign policy. Sounds like a good idea to us.
In the year of too many goddamn debates, this is one I’m actually glad to hear about.
Me too. Gingrich may be a bit of a dick, but at least he’s relatively smart. And, Huntsman is “the normal one.”

Also, the guy is a Republican, so Cain can’t claim that this is an coordinated attack from the “Democrat machine.” At least, he says he’s a Republican. He could be lying. So could Cain’s accuser. So could Cain! So could everybody!
You wanna add another candidate? It’s like the Republican primary is like a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week, you just add another idiot. …First you guys wanted (Michele) Bachmann, then (Rick) Perry — now (Chris) Christie? You know what, Republican base? Meet me at camera three!
(To camera three.) Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe your candidates aren’t the problem — maybe it’s you? You’re hard to please or figure out! You’re unrealistic! I mean, you’re pro-life, yet — (rolls tape of GOP members applauding Texas’s death penalty) — what was that? You’re afraid of ‘death panels,’ yet for uninsured coma patients — (rolls tape of GOP members shouting ‘YEAH!!!’ when Ron Paul was asked if a patient without health insurance should be allowed to die) — that’s the crowd: ‘YEAH!!!’ You guys ‘support the troops’ — well except for Captain Creatine over here (rolls tape of gay U.S. Army soldier who asked GOP candidates if they’d repeal DADT — and was booed by GOP debate crowd).
It’s like the Republican base is at war with its own talking points: ‘I want someone who’s gonna cut taxes — and balance the budget! Someone who’s a skilled orator — that doesn’t talk all fancy! The child of poor immigrants — who will build a fence to keep them out of this country! Someone who’s strong enough for a man — but Ph-balanced for a woman!
…It’s like your ideal candidate is a rare, super-heavy element that can only exist in a particular particle accelerator. And even then, only for a fraction of a second. Before you all remember how much you hate science.
You guys need to take a long, hard look in the mirror, and not come away thinking ‘Hey, there’s something wrong with this mirror.’"
JON STEWART, on media-fed rumors that New Jersey governor Chris Christie may enter the GOP presidential race — as well as the hypocritical sentiments of the Republican party — on The Daily Show. (via valjeans)
This whole bit was brilliant, favorite line in the whole thing was “Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe your candidates aren’t the problem — maybe it’s you?”
This quote is perfection.
Jon Stewart: my love. my loins.
Not the Onion.
We had to click twice to be absolutely convinced that this wasn’t The Onion. It’s not.
I feel like my life is slowly just becoming an absurdist fantasy
