I’ve got a mini-margarita chilling and a dozen other things to do tonight but I will check in on the second GOP debate in four days to see with whom we will be going to war and to whom we will not apologize.  And then count how many times Ron Paul gets booed.

The fact that Herman Cain may be a serial creep bothers me less than the fact he is happily ignorant of the information he needs to do the job he seeks.  Speaking of creeps, this guy needs to get his ass kicked.

pierce for the win. again.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha:

Seriously, the amount of time that Rick Santorum spends thinking about other people’s lady parts, and what some men may be doing with their pee-pees, is highly disturbing. I mean, if the bus driver spent as much time talking about this stuff as Santorum does, you’d report him to the cops and carry your kids to school ten miles on your back.

Your Democracy, ladies and gentlemen.

Cherish it.

Charles Pierce may be my new favorite political blogger.  After taking on Eddie Munster, he trained his sights on Rick Perry:

Added Rick Perry Bonus: I was watching the Frontline documentary on the appalling case of Cameron Todd Willingham, whom Perry put to death for murder by arson based on trash science not far removed from bleeding people with leeches. Apparently, toward the end, Willingham believed his wife had sold him out and, while in the death chamber, he told her that he fucking hoped she’d rot in hell, or something to that effect. Confronted with the fact that the best scientific evidence exonerated Willingham of the crime, and that he’d rigged an investigation into the case by firing some people and installing his cronies, Perry says to a gaggle of reporters that Willingham was a “bad man” because, at the end, he directed at his wife “an obscenity-laced triad.”

A triad.

Inches from actual English.

For. The. Win.

all he wanted was a job at Fox News

… or maybe a boost to his book or motivational speaker gigs and suddenly he’s in the top tier of 2012 GOP hopefuls polling at 37% in Iowa.  That’s why he hasn’t been trying that hard to actually win.
