Primarily Terrible

[Content Note: Racist slur.]

Below is video of Rick Santorum giving a speech to supporters at The Armory in Janesville, Wisconsin on March 27, 2012. The video will begin playing in the middle of the speech (if it doesn't, jump to 34:23).

Santorum: We know. We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like—the antiwar, government nig—uh, the, uh, America was a source for division around the world.

I'm sure there's a perfectly logical and reasonable explanation for this. Like the time he said "bluh people," even though it sounded like "black people." It's just SO WEIRD how Rick Santorum keeps stumbling over things that definitely sound like super racist garbage!

It's prolly because we anti-racists keep INJECTING RACE INTO IT! We're just LOOKING FOR THINGS TO GET MAD ABOUT! That's the problem.

I truly cannot wait to hear the explanation of what he was trying to say this time. What a fucking dirtbag.

This might be my favorite sentence ever written about Newt Gingrich: "Newt Gingrich does not eat sandwiches; he fundamentally transforms them, radically changing them from solid foodstuff to masticated bolus to energy." LOL! That captures so perfectly Gingrich's belief that everything that is new to him (like online fundraising) is something he revolutionized. His outsized ego is truly peerless.

Something something Ron Paul. Has anyone seen Ron Paul lately? I'm sure he's doing something GREAT somewhere. Maybe he can write some newsletters for Rick Santorum.

Mitt Romney has been endorsed by Paul Ryan. Yippee. Who cares. It's not so much an endorsement of Romney as a message by a party leader to the other candidates to get the hell out of the race. George H.W. Bush was less circumspect: "It's time when to hold 'em and time when to fold 'em. Well, I think it's time for people to all get behind this good man."

Don't be fooled. Papa Bush is just angling for a ride in Mitt Romney's car elevator.

In other Romney-related news: "Bob McDevitt has filed paperwork to launch the super PAC Animal Lovers Against Romney. McDevitt, a longtime Democratic supporter and political operative, tells PI the goal is to 'get the message out just how callous in temperament Mitt Romney is.' The owner of a rescue dog said the issue is personal. The group, whose website is, has its official rollout next week and plans on targeting 10 battleground states with Internet ads. The budget: $1 million."

Talk about these things! Or don't. Whatever makes you happy. Life is short.
