I would say, a fictional character, but then I would probably be accused of circular reasoning. :rolleyes:

"Our new program is designed to isolate the few remaining specimens of moderate Republicans, mate them in captivity, and then safely release these rare and precious creatures back into the electorate," said IPPM’s Cynthia Rollins, who traces the decline of the species to changes in the political climate and rampant, predatory fanaticism.

Glenn Greenwald hits a homerun with his article about Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho billionaire who is the national finance co-chair of the Mitt Romney presidential campaign, and the intimidation practices his attorneys use to derail a free press.

Thanks. But Mitt seems to like VanderSloot:

Quote

Romney lavishly praised him this way: “Frank’s vision and sense of social responsibility is second to none and he never ceases to amaze me.”

Still have to figure out how to vote here in Michigan on February 28.

Write in Obama on the Republican ticket. That'll fix 'em!

It's that lever way over there - on the very far right. B-)

Robo-calls aplenty in Michigan these days, mostly from the Romney campaign. Turns out that Mitt is really, really mad at Rick Santorum for his votes for earmarks and for raising the debt limit to avert a US default.

I've been leaning toward voting for Romney to minimize the chances that a dangerous person would get the presidency. But Mitt is making that so very tough to do...

Dangerous like Gingrich or Santorum.

Now Romney has revived revived that old claim about Obama promising to hold unemployment below 8%:

Quote

“Three years ago, a newly elected President Obama told America that if Congress approved his plan to borrow nearly a trillion dollars, he would hold unemployment below 8 percent.”

— Mitt Romney, Feb. 4, 2012

We had dealt with claim more than a year ago but we unaware that it had slipped into the former Massachusetts governor’s talking points until loyal reader Chuck Smith sent us a homemade, five-minute You Tube video challenging Romney to a $10,000 bet to prove that Obama actually ever said this.

$10,000? Wonder where that number came from?

Just vote NO. Or maybe write in "You gotta be kidding". Might be a winner. I see that Santorum has now become The Great Christian Hope. . This has gone well beyond embarrassing.

And today I read that a 2008 speech made my Santorum is coming back to haunt him, one in which he declared the U.S. at war against Satan. And here I thought WE were the Great Satan, and now I'm bumfuddled. Are they just plain Satan, while we are Great Satan, or are they infringing on our copyright? Should we sue?

MikeH, do we have a case? Or is this hyperbole from Santorum the Singular?

I accidentally +1'd your post. Meant to reply thusly: Is there a second choice?
