I don’t see Santorum hanging onto the cliff.

Archivarix on January 6, 2012 at 1:23 PM

I am pulling for anyone that has as legitimate chance of defeating the 4th best President evah!

Pre emptive Strike: No its not racist, Obama is creating a nation of dead beats.

He’s already hit bottom and made a 20-foot crater.

C’mon Sarjex, King Leonidas had the stones to kick an Iranian Persian into the pit and slay his homies. Mitt, OTOH, well…..not so much.

Ragin Cajun… wherebout’s you is, enh? We got at least one other Louisianian on these boards, I believe goes by the name Cajun Carrot or some such.

Reminds me of those political cartoons from the 1800’s that weren’t funny.

It’s an existentialist commentary on 21st century life. A deeply intellectual homage to what the Edmund Bergler, the 20th century psychoanalyst, cited as “Man’s inhumanity to man is equaled only by man’s inhumanity to himself.” An intensely philosophical reflection on both the mundane and the superlative, the image is best contemplated for many days so that it’s deep inherent message of truism is best understood to it’s fullest.

RINO Narcissist, the other Obama

Schadenfreude on January 6, 2012 at 1:42 PM

This conservative will NOT vote for Romney! If the GOP nominates another RINO (Republican In Name Only) I’ll stay home for the first time in my voting history. Until Americans realize both Democrat and Republican elites have the same masters we are all screwed.

Bush signed T.A.R.P phase 1

Obama signed T.A.R.P phase 2

both have the same masters!

I only see ONE non-puppet running for President and you all know who that is.

ted c on January 6, 2012 at 1:31 PM

As the cartoon suggests, Mitt will readily kick his own party members down a hole. He’ll be on his knees before 0bama long before November.

Well gee…

And I live in Missouruh. I used to live in that great swath of homeland called Acadiana too.

But, if you don’t want to get more specific… like Thibodeaux, Mamou, Grand Coteau, Cade, I get it.

@whatcat:

Are you sure you’re looking at the same picture as we are? Your description seems to more aptly describe this!!

Except Mitt really hasn’t had to kick anyone… all of them have thrown themselves off the cliff willingly…

Eh. When the tendency is to use it as an ongoing response, I suspect a lot of folks are left “convoluted”.

Sorry for the complete non-sequitur, but I thought the cartoon referred to The Nightmare Before Christmas:

Wasn’t picking nits. I was merely pointing out the fact that when you post the same comment verbatim in every thread it’s just going to be difficult for folks to figure out what you’re talking about.

whatcat on January 6, 2012 at 4:04 PM

Good job, dude. I like it.

Jailbreak on January 6, 2012 at 4:27 PM

I have been to every state in the USA, and the folks in Iowa are some of the nicest, and decent people I have ever met. Utah as well.

JustJP on January 6, 2012 at 4:28 PM

Umm…well…if you had named the “kicker” American Conservatives and had the names of all the candidates going over, I’d say: NOT BAD.

Hyping Romney – neither Conservative nor Alpha manly – in this manner?
PATHETIC.

eminds me of those political cartoons from the 1800’s that weren’t funny.

Yup, not funny and not very clever. Art kinda sucks too, in my opinion.

I know the history, but if not having seen the movie makes me a goober, oh well. Just never really got into steroid-pumped, oil-smeared, man-boys slashing each other with swords in a film length video game.
