Gingrich Leads in GA by Double Digits

Newt Gingrich might actually win his quasi-home state of Georgia next week if a new poll from Scott Rasmussen is to be believed.

Newt Gingrich 38%
Mitt Romney 26%
Rick Santorum 20%
Ron Paul 7%

To me, the bigger news is that Romney has moved ahead of Santorum for second place. This poll was done March 1st among 750 likely voters.

    Uh oh, there might be a video of Obama drinking from keg!

  2. Phil says:

    Drinking beer? That’s not being a very good Muslim.

  3. jason says:

    ” santorum can’t help it if michael moore wanted people to vote for him, give me a break ”

    I hope TimV was being facetious with this comment…

    Once you ask Democrats to vote for you certainly that specifically includes Michael Moore…

  4. Bitterlaw says:

    He likely prefers broadway to nascar, wine over beer. A real sweater man if there ever was one.

    Comment by Tim V — March 2, 2012 @ 12:27 pm

    Tim V. – Some people are deep. I would rather see a Broadway show than spend 30 seconds watching NASCAR. I will drink beer but don’t drink wine. I don’t own a sweater.

  5. jason says:

    ” Why should you be surprised when your detestable attitude towards NEWT and Santorum causes their supporters to have a detestable attitude towards Romney??”

    Translation: Santorum supporters are upset about Romney supporters refusing to support a certain loser, so therefore they will prefer to see Obama elected.


    All the detestable things Santorum supporters say about Romney would not keep me from voting for Santorum, btw.

    From American Spectator regarding the 1976 GOP Primaries:

    “In a number of other primaries in addition to Texas, Reagan did the same thing, either winning due to Democratic crossovers or keeping it close due to the Dems.

    Ford moaned a lot about it, but Reagan repeatedly put up stirring defenses for allowing everybody to vote for whomever they wanted. He said that the GOP candidate would need Dems and independents to vote GOP to win the fall campaign anywya, so why not appeal to them in the primaries, too?

    Reagan won the argument, and only some last-minute vote-renting (of the legal kind) by the Ford White House kept Reagan from winning the nomination at the 1976 convention. But that clsoe call set him up for his triumphant campaign in 1980.”

  7. jason says:

    ” I don’t own a sweater.”

    Really? There is a guy who is dead ringer for you that shops at the Amish market in Shrewsbury.

  8. mnw says:

    zero sez, “I don’t bluff.”

    Right. He folds.

  9. Bitterlaw says:

    The Shrewsbury market flies a rainbow flag from what I’ve heard. Real men hang out in Kleinfeltersville. Just sayin”

  10. jason says:

    6. Different concept. Reagan Democrats are not the Daily Kos/SEIU types that are crossing over to help Santorum. Reagan Democrats stayed with him through the general election. How many Union thugs and DKos types are going to vote for Santorum in the GE?

    Reagan appealed to conservative Democrats to build a coalition, Santorum is appealing to left wingers to subvert the process.

    The difference is huge.

  11. hellbelly says:

    …so your saying Santorum’s robocalls went only to Kos-types? Wow…his organization is way more sophisticated than I’ve given him credit for.

  12. lisab says:

    “they should be able to run on a blend that is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline (the so-called E85 blend), or even a coal-derived methanol/gas mixture.”

    actually you can make oil from coal

    for less than $60/barrel

    and we have lots of coal

  13. jason says:

    ” Real men hang out in Kleinfeltersville.”

    Good to know. Are most of the real men over at Enck’s Gun Barn or at Stohler’s Meat Market?

  14. SUSYQUE says:

    Sad to say…Sentorum danced with the devil when he invited Dems to vote in the MI election. He is now a tainted nominee. Never mind what happened in the last election…the Dems are more vicious than ever.
    Go here:

  15. jason says:

    11. It went to registered Democrats in a union state like Michigan. It was supported by DKos in Operation Hilarity and encouraged by Michael Moore.

    Because of it Santorum avoided a double digit loss and came within 3 points of winning with people who have no intention of supporting him in the GE.

    Calling this “appealing to Reagan Democrats” is a joke.

  16. lisab says:

    Cape Town – A Randburg man has posted an advert on the Gumtree classifieds website in which he would like a midget to kick his ex-girlfriend on the shins.

    “I was recently dumped and require the services of a midget to go and kick my ex-girlfriend in the shins whilst she is at work,” he writes.

    The man, known only as Brett, works for a marketing company, told the Star that his advert was not a joke.

    “I clearly took it out because I want my ex-girlfriend to be kicked in the shins. Midget revenge is the only form of revenge that works these days,” he said.

  17. Bitterlaw says:

    The Reagan Democrats are between 52 years old and death. They may have changed a bit since they received their AARP cards.

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    I once had a case in front of a judge who had the same last name as a town near Harrisburg. His family had settled the area 300 years before. I definitely was not getting the hometown treatment in that court.

  19. NYCmike says:

    “I was bottle fed because the brilliant doctors in 1968 said that formula was superior to breast milk.”

    -I am one of a large brood born from 1955 – 1975 to the same parents, ALL formula-fed. My sisters and sister-in-laws (breast-feeders) all envy my 80-year-old MOM still having a nice set. (their words, not mine!) And we all came out fine!

  20. lisab says:

    you defended mr. paxtang?

  21. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC’s mom was ranked Best Rack at the Kew Gardens Senior Center.

  22. Bitterlaw says:

    lisab – any time a judge starts with, ” So, how was the drive from Philadelphia?” you know you are in for a fight with the court.

  23. Tim V says:

    I hope TimV was being facetious with this comment…Jason


  24. Bitterlaw says:

    I never realized that being a state governor for 4 years makes you a Washington insider but 16 years in the House and Senate makes you an outsider.

    Republicans seem to be having a problem coming up with a credible candidate to run in the Maine open Senate seat All the top possible candidates have said no.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    Breaking News – COD and Angle racing towards Maine to be first to file to run for Senate.

  30. NYCmike says:

    22.NYC’s mom was ranked Best Rack at the Kew Gardens Senior Center.

    -My Mom would not be caught alive in a senior center, she always says “the people are too old, I have nothing in common with them!” My Dad says the same. Instead, they torment each other. Until they crack each other up!
    Very blessed!

  31. mnw says:

    Michaud, the DEM congressman, also took a pass.
    There are only 2 weeks to gather signatures.

    Sean Trende has an interesting analysis at RCP.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – I meant the Kew Gardens Swingers Club. Zing!

    You are lucky indeed. My dad is 84 and was just diagnosed with emphysema. Other than that, he is in good health. Maybe smoking for 66 years was a bad idea.

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    lisab – that was obviously Jason. A man who will wear a sweater will wear a rasberry beret.

  34. Tim V says:

    35- LOL, good one.

  35. jan says:

    Th radical feminist Pingree might just walk easily into the Senate without much fight.

  36. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:



    No I think your nervous breakdown has been progressing quite nicely for some time now

  37. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Sorry to hear about your Dad Bitterlaw

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    I am very sorry that lisab interpreted my admission that I hooked up with flat girls in college to mean that I would wear a beret.

  39. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks. Dad says giving up smoking will give him more money to buy beer. Fight on, Dad.

  40. GF says:

    38- Jan, I wouldn’t jump to any solid conclusions yet; mnw mentioned Trende’s analysis upthread, and ANgus King may yet jump in.

  41. NYCmike says:

    #34 – Kew Gardens Swingers Club, then a rare picture of Bitterlaw in #35.

    2012 may well be the end of the world!

  42. SUSYQUE says:

    #23..CPA…So? WE all have a right to change for the better. Think of all the things you have done but wouldn’t do now.
    Every time I see “CPA” it reminds me to prepare so I will have all the documents I need when I go to the tax man.

  43. NYCmike says:

    #42 – My Grandmother used to say “gettin’ old ain’t for the weak!”
    Here is to your Dad fighting like a Mickey Ward!

  44. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    Let’s hope the delegate stealing will kill Mittens, the pond scum of the earth in this year’s cycle.

    It’s not over yet. Rick leads in OH, and he’s working on his message to blue collars in his close to home state. He can still win OH narrowly, and can and will win OK, TN, and such.

    Romney’s antics, from FL to IA to ME where the Establishment has played tricks or downright cheated is becoming a news story now. The polls may reverse again.

  45. Tim V says:

    I’m also sorry to hear about your Dad, Bitter.

    did you name your evangelical of the day yet ?

  46. GF says:

    Also heard something about potential improprieties dealing with an organization headed by Snowe’s huband (some educaiton group?), but I don’t know much about that at all.

  47. lisab says:

    i just loved bitterlaw’s man-bag in #35

    i suppose he says he needs one as a lawyer 🙂

  48. lisab says:

    best wishes for you father to bitterlaw

  49. janz says:

    More Romney Derangement Syndrome being expressed by dingle. Anybody who leads with so much intense dislike like that is not a rational thinker.

  50. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe Dingle is really Add. The posts are stupid enough. Mitt stole a delegate by winning the state by more than 30,000 votes. Santorum did nothing wrong by trying to get Democrats to the polls to cook the election.

  51. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    “I Don’t Want Me No Mormon” is all its ever been…

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    48 – Your deliberate campaigning to be Favorite Evangelical by a shameless tactic of extending well wishes to my Dad is admirable. Tim V. is, indeed, today’s Favorite Evangelical.

  53. mnw says:

    No, it’s I Am A Beutiful

  54. Tim V says:

    Ace lays a smackdown on chek’s hero David Frum for his vile column re Breitbart

    David Frum will die as he lived, gray, timid, small, spiteful, cramped in thought and bent in spirit, slender of talent and obese in self-regard, unloved, unnoticed, unremembered and unread.

  55. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Chekote sure is cracking up lately isn’t she?

  56. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Breitbart was a monumental loss

    You need strident attack guys but the POTUS nominee cant be like that, we need guys like Breitbart for that…

  57. GF says:

    BTW, Bitter, going back through and reading about your dad; hope that he recovers well and takes to the beer.

    That said, can I snatch “Lapsed Catholic Married into Jewry of the Day” by acclamation?

  58. SUSYQUE says:

    #47…there you go again, bashing Mitt. How about making a compare/contrast between the two men in standard English to make your case?

  59. Tim V says:

    hope, I’m trouncing you in the fav evangelical contest.12-4. no, I’m not really keeping score.

  60. jan says:

    Dingleberry nobody cares about Romney getting the extra delegate in Michigan but Santorum and his dwindling pond of supporters.

    You can scream about it from the backseats at the convention in Tampa.

  61. Tim V says:

    it’s a european carrying case, lisa

  62. lisab says:

    abc’s “what would you do?”

    features a mormon woman admitting to her mormon boyfriend that she, a mormon, once had sex with someone, who may or may not have been a mormon. having premarital sex is against their mormon religion.

    the mormon boyfriend then freaks out and yells at her in public, calling her tainted, as mormons are well known to do.

    the show then asks, “what would you do?”

  63. Bitterlaw says:

    GF – you are indeed the Favorite Lapsed Catholic Jew Lover of the day. Any other categories? Pagan of the Day? Anabaptist of the Day? Lutheran who actually hates pot luck suppers of the Day? I’m not standing at the scorer’s table all day.

  64. lisab says:

    there is one thing that could be on the obama tapes that could really throw things into a tizzy

    what if obama is shown with a pretty white girlfriend?

    that would hurt him with black women, especially michelle, rev. write type black men and just throw open the doors of all kinds of race baiting

  65. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe there is evidence that Obama used to watch Phil Donahue instead of Oprah.

  66. Bitterlaw says:

    If Obama preferred Sally Jesse Paphael to Oprah, it could shake things up.

  67. lisab says:

    i doubt anything else, except outright slurs against whites or Jewish people


    a pretty white girlfriend

    would hurt him.

    slurs against whites would lose him the election

    and a pretty white girlfriend would just tick off black women …

    drugs or cheating or watching donohue would not hurt him much …

    as long as he did not wear a sweater

  68. jan says:

    Internet rumors are that Obama put a hit out on him has a warning not to release the video.

  69. lisab says:

    tornadoes rip through alabama

  70. NYCmike says:

    What if he is praying towards Mecca?

  71. Tim V says:

    lapsed or not, gf, you can be my catholic of the day

  72. Tim V says:

    Breitbart promised, “The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails in the 1980s, like Bill (Ayers) and Bernadine (Dohrn), who said one day we would have the presidency, and the rest of us slept as they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted and they oversaw hundreds of millions of dollars in the Annenberg Challenge and they had real money, from real capitalists. Then they became communists. We got to work on that. That is a parenthesis. Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.”

    The CPAC crowd went wild when Breitbart said ““We are going to vet him (Obama) from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

    Breitbart promised to release the video’s just in time to destroy Barack Obama’s chances for being re-elected, i.e. motive for killing Breitbart.

    Just a little more than two weeks later, Breitbart, age 43, fell over dead while walking his dog near his Brentwood, California home. Officials say his death “appears” to be from “natural causes”, but an autopsy is being performed to determine his actual cause of death.

    Breibart’s passing has all the classic elements needed to create dramatic conspiracy theories:

  73. Bitterlaw says:

    Wow. Even after awarding Favorite Evangelical to Tim V., he names GF Favorite Catholic. Of course, Tim V. loves lapsed Catholics. The more lapsed the better.

  74. Tim V says:

    oops sorry bitter, you told me you didn’t want my award a week ago or so. I’ll be happy to name you tomorrow.

  75. Bitterlaw says:

    Hmmm. When the mother of my son’s friend blew an aneurism in her kitchen at the age of 41 she must have really pissed off Obama. It all makes sense now.

  76. Tim V says:

    bitter, my favorite catholics are the ones that become evangelicals. lapsed catholics are my 2nd fav.

    those that toss out vulgate passages are lower on my list

  77. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim V. – when your wife said she didn’t want a present, did you not buy jer a present? You think I meant that? I thought I would run away with the award because even though we have many Catholics, I know there are a few that have no shot at the award.

  78. Tim V says:

    she might have dated obama, hence the aneurism

  79. Bitterlaw says:

    My rule is very simple. People can believe what they want. However, if a Catholic leaves the Church, I don’t care why. I don’t want to hear why. I want them to shut up, stop bad-mouthing the Church, and move on to wherever they find peace.

  80. Tim V says:

    yes, she told me she didn’t want anything for her birthday but I bought her a present anyway.

    bitter, women are like that but not men.

    zing !

  81. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    When will the “Romney murdered Breitbart!!!” stories first appear on RedState?

  82. Tim V says:

    my former preacher at calvary chappel came out of being a catholic. he didn’t really spend much time bashing catholism though. he did bash rick warren and joel osteen.

  83. Tim V says:

    When will the “Romney murdered Breitbart!!!” stories first appear on RedState?

    worldnetdaily would be more likely

  84. Tim V says:

    oh, sorry, i was hasty. you said ROMNEY not obama. my bad.

  85. janz says:


    Breitbart’s death will most likely continue to be ruled as via ‘natural causes.’ However, political cover-ups are not out of the realm of possibility, either. Even my very matter-of-fact husband’s initial thoughts were ones of suspicions, considering AB’s tendancy to attract enemies, and especially in light of his very public call to vet and take down Obama’s reelection.

  86. Gpo says:

    Read 2 reviews on The Lorax- both said it is ridiculous how radical and terrible the movie is. The lefties can’t even leave dr Seuss alone. Indoctrinate them when they are young I guess

  87. jan says:

    The Democrats have started another campaign to take on Rush about his slut comments.

    I’m tempted to join him, his actions and behavior this cycle have been awful, he’s now now long a net plus for the Republicans to stand behind.

    Do you think it time to cut Rush lose?

  88. Hall Monitor says:

    #67… I don’t think it is a wise idea to speak
    of Mormonism in a disrespectful way by talking about women and sex whether it’s on a TV show or not. The lefties on AbC and other channels have little respect for anyone who is serious and or frivolous about their faith. Mitt Romney takes his religion seriously and respectfully.
    All religions have some “strange”customs or beliefs one may feel is weird.

  89. Tim V says:

    i think rush stepped in it with his slut comment.

  90. janz says:

    Santorum seems to be throwing everything against the kichen wall, in hopes something will stick, creating another surge for him!

  91. SUSYQUE says:

    #92…jan…Rush is not the same as he was say four years ago. There is not too much substance in what he says. It’s now more entertainment than serious dialogue. What do you think about his program?

  92. SoHope says:

    To be fair Lorax book was about enviromentalist activism and anti-corporate indoctrination.

  93. Bitterlaw says:

    Breaking News – Hedgehog Report declares that Breitbart was murdered by Obama agents because he had video of Obama watching Rikki Lake instead of Oprah.

  94. janz says:

    #92 I have felt that Limbaugh was over the top, in hs credibility, years ago! His mouth and arrogance discredits the conservative movement, rather than uplifts it.

  95. janz says:


    You need to start watching NCIS more.

  98. lisab says:

    “I don’t think it is a wise idea to speak
    of Mormonism in a disrespectful way by talking about women and sex whether it’s on a TV show or not.”

    i don’t no how many times i have had to stop a mormon boyfriend from abusing his mormon girlfriend especially if you include treating his mormon girlfriend disrespectfully in public …

    oh wait … i do … zero times!

    in fact, the most disrespectful i have ever seen a mormon act is when romney asked santorum about the birth control issue

  99. Bitterlaw says:

    Janz – I’m not a conspiracy guy. Vince Foster killed himself. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were not an “inside job.” Oswald acted alone. Clinton spunked on Monica and there was nobody else on her grassy knoll.

  100. Bitterlaw says:

    Spunk still goes through the filter but J ENNA gets blocked? Damn.

  101. jan says:

    Rush no longer serves any function in the advancement of Republicans or the conservatism. His endorsement of Democrats voting in a GOP primary was beyond the pale basically teaming up with Michael Moore and Santorum to make the GOP has weak has possible. He is now a liability.

    Release him and let the dogs have him.

    Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

    Posted by Just a Grunt on Mar 02, 2012 at 10:49 am

    For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

    In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

    While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

  103. lisab says:

    If Wes comes back, I don’t think that he’ll get TimVs award, but he was a REALLY lapsed Catholic, indeed, so far as to have left the Church. It’s the Chili’s thing that may get in the way.

    MD may have a shot once he returns, though.

  108. Bitterlaw says:

    When a group of students demanded that Villanova Law School take down the crucifixes in every classroom, the University President stated, respectfully, that he would be happy to refund the balance of their tuition and write letters of recommendation for the offended students to attend another law school. It was never an issue after that.

  109. lisab says:

    can i just ask,

    who goes to a catholic university and expects to get condoms at the university health center …

    that would be like attending oral roberts university and expecting to be able to hold hands with the opposite sex on campus

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    MD left the Catholic Church, attends Easter and Christmas services as a Methodist to keep peace in the family and is some form of agnostic. I don’t know where you gravitate if you become a lapsed agnostic.

  111. janz says:

    #105 Bitter

    That is where you and I differ. Some events, which have too much synchronicity attached to them, gives me pause as to some of the behind-the-scenes circumstances or manipulations. I look at JFK’s death, Marilyn Monoe’s exit as being two prime ones. However, I am adding Breitbart’s demise, rounding it out to a solid three, as being rather suspiciously timed.

  112. lisab says:

    ““in fact, the most disrespectful i have ever seen a mormon act AGAINST A GIRL is when romney asked santorum about the birth control issue””

    no, i really have never seen any mormon treat anyone, boy or girl, man or woman disrespectfully.

    i have seen them disagree

    but never really act disrespectfully

    119- If they come to a disagreement, the can have ice cream since a cream soda might have caffeine.

    Seriously, I had rarely dealt with or met a Mormon before I returned from the Middle East as a teenager, but in the central valley of CA, there are tons. All the ones who invited me into their homes offered ice cream since they didn’t carry soda, tea or coffee. I rather liked that, I must say. Having the Mormon neighbour lady borrow my coffee, Coke and a bottle of wine only to witness her lecturing her kids in her backyard that they were “The Three Evils” was a bit much, however.


  119. lisab says:

    more for us GF

    Could even the stalwart Sarah Palin be getting tired of all the GOP pettiness, and more willing to go with ABO rather than her subtle grind of ABR.

    Have I left anything out?

  124. lisab says:

    “Gosh…it seems that every entity in our culture is falling apart in some way.”

  125. Hall Monitor says:

  126. lisab says:

    does anyone happen to know how much it costs to hire a decent rock band to play at a college event?

    i do not mean a famous band, but more like a good garage band or up and coming band looking to play gigs for experience?

  127. janz says:


    I know, and have said that about her before. I just find it different that Palin’s tune seems to be changing a bit.

  131. Tim V says:

    Have I left anything out?

    yes, the HHR has gotten worse with the departures of howard dean, rdelbov, md, wes, and yes even gary maxwell. polaris rarely posts as he gets tired of being mocked.

    and who has replaced them ? rocky rumprider, dingle, etc.

    oh, even eph and ip, were ok in my book.

  132. lisab says:

    “Who would have thought the polygamist in the race would not be either of the two Mormons?” Is this quote from A. Jon Stewart B. Bill Maher or C. Republican Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels

    Tim V. – you are filled with Christian charity today. You named 3 of the most vulgar, vicious posters.

  134. Brandon says:

    EPH is just mentally unstable. And IP has a creepy obsession with homosexuality.

  135. Tim V says:

    oh and knighthawk is gone now too

  136. Brandon says:

    Knighthawk has apparently chosen to be exclusively with the misfits.

  137. Brandon says:

    Things I learned from my visit to BJG:

    “Unless the dems get sick of Obama enough to want him out themselves, we will never know if he was eligible 100%.”

    IP made a post about an enema

    IP again with a gay reference: “Frum~~A metrosexual salad tossing sycophant,RINO.”

  138. Tim V says:

    ip does seem to dwell on gays

  139. Tim V says:

    ip had some good pic links, some ok poetry, some decent humor, and conservative positions.

  145. Tim V says:

    pw, initiated the “firsts”

  146. Brandon says:

    I trademarked the Maxwell Scale.

  147. DrJay says:

    Rep. Donald Payne gravely ill

    “Don Payne is near the end of his days and members of the New Jersey delegation are saddened and are going to see him,” said one Hill staffer close to the New Jersey delegation.”

    jason coined the term, lisab’s eunuch.

  149. Tim V says:

    lisab created – tm the dem toady

  150. SoHope says:

    I think I popularized “thread rules”
    I coined Dog Turd of a Man, (P)Rick, Echo Eph, Dingleberry…not much but if I leaned anything from the patent battles of the 21st century, it doesn’t matter if you invented it, but who has the best lawyers.

  151. Tim V says:

    ip came up with the name- rockyrumprider- go figure huh

  152. janz says:

    #154 susy

    I was just alluding to the fact that Palin seemed more focused on removing Obama from office, rather than purifying the GOP from any vestiges of elite/establishment influences — her usual rant.

  153. SoHope says:

    mfg copyrighted all the creative spellings for swear words.

  154. Tim V says:

    of course mfg created multiple “parakeet” handles

  155. Tim V says:

    bitter created the “evangelical of the day” award

  156. DrJay says:

    Who came up with “The Silky Pony”?

  157. janz says:

    I miss some of the ‘regulars,’ especially wes and MD. The posts are more on tract with poll and political information sharing when their presence was here.

  158. SoHope says:

    Bitter, have you really been in touch with MD?

  159. DrJay says:

    Happy birthday to Pete Sessions….

  160. SUSYQUE says:

    Gingrich Leaves Trail of Debts, Lawsuits, and Bankruptcies in His Wake
    A lengthy investigation by the website finds a previously unexplored side of Newt Gingrich’s career: “a striking pattern of financial mismanagement at the political and nonprofit groups that Gingrich has created, steered, and abandoned over the past 30 years.”

  161. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Well our bigger problem is we haven’t signed Drew Brees yet…

  162. SUSYQUE says:

    Someone should be able to tell us why Wes and MD
    are hibernating in some distant, quiet, safe place.
    I’m glad Corey shows up. I think I am leaving one more out? What is it?

  163. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Well, very very disappointing if true about the Saints they have always been a clean team in the past…

  164. Brandon says:

    Ted Nugent endorses Romney.

    Ted Nugent endorses Mitt Romney…

    It’s official…this one’s in the books.

    You go, girl!

  170. DrJay says:


    …at a NASCAR event?


  171. SoHope says:

    Did the Lt. Governor let the 1st graders rub oil on the Lt. Gov’s bald head?

  172. SUSYQUE says:

    #162…janz…thanks for answering. It is a good idea and good politics to go after ooo. There are so many good reasons why. I wish hordes of disgruntled voters would begin to surround the WH to display their anger over ooo’s policies.

  173. MittRomneyStoleMyDelegate! says:

    Well who is going to sign Drew Brees in 2013?

    Can’t believe we didn’t pay him…

    as the unofficial first HHR Historian, I diligently researched the archives and determined the month everyone began posting and came up with the inagurial class of 2004 list. Also, I had many posts on HHR trivia.

  176. Tim V says:

    tina, of course has created many nicknames.

  177. Tim V says:

    polaris or key bored, began the practice of posting their handle’s at the end of their posts.

    MD was the first to identify add as a plant and mfg nicknamed him “ficus”

  180. SoHope says:

    Bunu was the first hedgehogger to deny the holocaust.

  181. SoHope says:

    I think I was the first to connect Ron Paul to L. Ron Hubbert…But Wes popularized L. Ron Paul.

  182. HowCouldWeHaveBeenSoStupidAsToNotSignDrewBreesToALongTermContract? says:

    lisab introduced us to snake handlers

  183. SoHope says:

    MD coined Wobbie

  185. jason says:

    Bunu was the first HHR supporter of the flotilla… and last…

  186. Tim V says:

    lisab introduced us to snake handlers

    and more importantly to wahkeena

    say, why should wahkeena let that flake women get all the glory, wahkeena needs free birth control too

  187. SoHope says:

    …and she still hasn’t found a 2nd “baptist” church that does it…or acknowledged that the one church referenced got rid of that pastor years ago and make no future references to snake handling.

  188. Tim V says:

    I was the first to board the Caintrain, LOL

  189. jason says:

    I coined Democracy Corpse….. thank you very much..

    Corey, the original Mittbot

    first avid Mitt supporter

  191. jason says:

    Tina has had the best nicknames….

    Bubu, spendorum, fig newton, and many others

  192. SoHope says:

    I dropped my quasi-Perry support before his first debate.

  193. jason says:

    This is why I come here.. to learn…

    So Ted Nugent is a RINO.

    Who wouda thunk?

  194. a.gore says:

    I invented the Internet.

  195. SoHope says:

    Wes, invented the art of female arousal.

  196. Brandon says:

    The Washington Caucuses start at 10 AM PT, so the results shouldn’t be that late tomorrow.

  197. jason says:

    Breaking News:

    Rick Santorum, porker and earmarker Emeritus, who took several for the team, rose to #3 in the GOP leadership, 16 years in Congress, is now an “outsider”.

    Who knew?


  198. Rielle says:


  199. Brandon says:

    Ah, it seems CNN is starting their coverage at 8 PM, so I guess we won’t see results until then.

  200. jason says:

    Government Motors halts production of Chevy Volt and lays off 1,300.

    I blame Bush.

    Too bad, too, they had such a nice slogan:

    “This isn’t the car we wanted to make. This is the car we had to make.”

  201. Transparent Dem Troll says:

    The lack of trolls here lately is partly due to our re-tooling and re-training we have going on right now. The mood is gloomier here at the DNC troll center as we have failed in our attempts at getting a viable non-viable candidate to take out Romney.

    But now that Wes is gone, my identity is here at HHR is secure. He is the only one who knew who I was.

  202. HowCouldWeHaveBeenSoStupidAsToNotSignDrewBreesToALongTermContract? says:

    …getting a viable non-viable candidate to take out Romney. ”


  203. SoHope says:

    here’s the RNC’s official delegate tally: Unbound-211, Romney -118, Gingrich-29, Santorum-17, Paul-8

  204. Brandon says:

    I like how The Green Papers breaks it down as a hard count and a soft count:

    Soft delegate count: Romney 162, Santorum 65, Gingrich 45, Paul 41.
    Hard delegate count: Romney 118, Gingrich 29, Santorum 17, Paul 8, Huntsman 2.

  205. HowCouldWeHaveBeenSoStupidAsToNotSignDrewBreesToALongTermContract? says:

    This process needs major major reform

    Who can negotiate all of these bizarre rules?

  206. bio mom says:

    Those You Gov polls are too old. Most of the days were before Michigan voted. They will underestimate Romney therefore.

  207. SUSYQUE says:

    Historian…Who is the most disliked? I think his name starts with a b and has 4 letter.

  208. SUSYQUE says:

    There is a picture on Drudge of an dear elderly man embracing his dog. This is in tornado land.
    It really touches my heart. It makes me so sad that so many have lost their homes and lives.

  211. SUSYQUE says:

    Yim V.. Historian, who is bunu?

  212. GF says:

    Bunu…also known as “Acroso,” “Invalid” (often followed by a number sequence i.e. “Ivalid10”) and Newtchickenhawk of some variety or another. The Internet King of Paulbots. Stay clear of him SSQ; just trust me on this.

  213. Tim V says:

    He is the only one who knew who I was.

    so Wes is the transparent dem troll

  214. Tim V says:

    bunu and chek compete for most disliked. both were banned from bjg.
