Here we go again

It’s Newt vs. Mitt, live from Florida!

5 pm Yosemite (8 pm Okefenokee time) on CNN

I’ll be watching reruns of Chappelle’s Show. The Wayne Brady episode is supposed to be on.

This is an open thread.

    Should be fun. The hard part was finding CNN on my 1400 channel idiot box πŸ˜‰

    Vodkapundit’s giving his liver a rest, so Jazz Shaw is liveblogging for him tonight. If you want to read the blow-by-blow punches…..

    Let me know when the “training Day” bit is on Chappelle.

    Is Santorum drunk?

  5. 1539days says:

    Immigration? Snore. This is just CNN trying to shift the Hispanic vote to Obama. Ironic, since he has gotten more illegals unemployed than any other president.

  6. 1539days says:


    Rick Santorum fighting for relevancy. He made a big statement about how Mitt Making money wasn’t a bad thing and Newt advising companies wasn’t a bad thing.

    Santorum running is a bad thing. If he were out, Romney would be out, too.

  7. 1539days says:

    Newt pulled out the moderator card. Wolf got booed.Romney defended the media. Idiot. Left himself open to Newt.

  8. 1539days says:

    Ron Paul courting the Owies who have been infiltrated by Paulites.

  9. Karma says:

    Newt just implied Rubio for VP to the home crowd.

  10. Karma says:

    And that Mittens and Newt dance around health care made it seem like neither of them would repeal Obamacare.

    Of course, after Ron Paul forces himself into the debate, against Wolfe’s wishes and answers the question. Newt suddenly decides health care needs a ground up review that looks more like days Ron Paul muses about.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Just read a Krauthammer article implying ….”after that low ball SOTU Obama gave, if the Republican’s can’t beat him in Nov, they should declare bankruptcy”


  12. 1539days says:

    Ouch. Romney gets asked about him dissing Reagan. Suck it, Willard.

  13. Three Wickets says:

    If the entrenched political establishment in Washington is going to be crapped on, I have no trouble having a loony candidate who obsesses about going to the moon doing the crapping.

  14. DandyTiger says:

    What a horrible debate. The Republican party really should start over. I’d say Mitt did loads better than he has. He was sweeting and got booed and stumbled, but somehow he came across better in the end. Newt did better than the last debate too, but didn’t really knock any out of the park. Given that Mitt is ahead by 7 points now and there are no more debates until the vote, I’d say he’ll win Florida. And then we’ll hear it’s over. Again. {{head desk}}

    • 1539days says:

      Mitt Romney got 31% in Florida in 2008. I bet he does about the same.

      • DandyTiger says:

        Rasmussen has Mittens 39, Newtonion 31, rest in the noise. If you’re right and much less vote for Mittens (and probably vote Newt), then oopsie. That’s what I’m hoping for just to mess with the powers that be.

        • DandyTiger says:

          I read a bit more of the survey. Mitt has had a 17 point turn around. Kind of mirroring how Newt got a last minute surge in SC.

          Wonder if that will continue or if Mitt peaked a bit early and will slide back down. I think the pilling on of the establishment and big money for negative ads has worked. And well, it’s Newt after all. πŸ™‚

  15. Karma says:

    Kept forgetting I was listening to it…..wah, wah, wah , wah.

    According to the talking heads round up, Mittens has a new debate coach. He did seem a bit more animated and would remind me that there was a debate on.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Excellent article and good laying out of the dilemma of free where you’re the product.

      Something to consider is that there are alternatives. Google is turning out to be quite surprisingly evil. Using others, even if they might be doing some of the same, might be better just so that every internet resource you use isn’t with Google.

      Things have gotten so weird out there that I’m surprised every day that it’s still legal to use cash.

    • Pips says:

      What creeps me out the most about this is that even as someone who speaks out against ever more surveillance and try to protect my own data and privacy almost to the degree of paranoia, I still can’t fathom doing without Google. Or blogging for that matter. And that scares me. 😦

  16. DandyTiger says:

    A protest vote is all well and good. And there’s nothing like shaking up the establishment and sticking it to them. But Newt. Is there a way to bleach your brain? Just wondering.

    Brewer’s dust-up with Obama sends sales of her book soaring

    PHOENIX – It’s debatable whether arguing with the president of the United States is a bad move politically.
    But it appears it can be financially beneficial.
    On Wednesday, sales of “Scorpions for Breakfast” were tepid., where Gov. Jan Brewer has been marketing her political book on border security, federalism and the “liberal media,” reported that sales ranked it No. 343,222 of all the titles on its list.
    By Thursday morning, it had skyrocketed to No. 56. And by 8 p.m. Thursday it had made it all the way to No. 10 on the bestseller list.
    No other book on Amazon’s list increased its sales by so much in the last 24 hours.
    That sudden demand to see what Brewer wrote coincides with the highly publicized on-the-tarmac confrontation Wednesday between the governor and the president as he stepped off Air Force One to make a speech in Arizona.

      Good for her ! Isn’t it common knowledge that she was not pleased with her private Oval meeting with him over her border woes. He basically blew her off, now he’s upset she’s writing about it ?

      I might just go order her book too πŸ˜‰

    • DandyTiger says:

      The Obot media’s take on this seems to be that they wished he would have broken her finger, or that maybe the secret service would have slammed her face down on the tarmac.

      That level of hate and violence over someone daring to question dear leader doesn’t surprise me one bit.

  18. votermom says:

    It would be funny if Ron Paul won FL. That would make a different winner for each primary.
    (I know he doesn’t have a chance – just an idle thought)

  19. Betty says:

    Does anyone know anything about this:

    Now we learn that Bain, under Romney’s “supervision”, purchased and ran the Damon Corporation, who pled guilty to Federal conspiracy charges as a result of tens of millions of dollars in systemic Medicare fraud committed under Romney’s and Bain’s control. Damon was fined over $119-million which was, at the time, the largest criminal healthcare fine in Massachusetts history and Mr. Romney’s participation was characterized in 1996 by Corporate Crime Reporter thusly: “As manager and board member of Damon Corp, Mitt Romney sits at the center of one of the top 15 corporate crimes of the 1990’s.”

    julian assange will work on russian tv.

    where does this leave bradley manning and his case?

  21. yttik says:

    Darn, I missed a vital and important debate that could have helped solidify my position of voting for Any Dead Goat But Obama.

    So which dead goat won? The fat billy goat? The goat with perfect hair? The gay hating goat? They pygmy goat that keeps sneaking up and butting people in the rear?

    I heard Santorum thinks kids are born bad and we have to mold them into something good. That’s a ba-a-ad goat. I hope that goat drops out.

    I heard Mittens told Newt that “11 million grandmas are not the problem.” Ha! Good one. I was all confused about the 11 million grandmas who are going to self deport. Maybe that has something to do with all those school kids taking over their janitorial jobs?

  22. HELENK says:

    Georgia court case against backtrack. His name may not be on the Georgia ballot. Now this could happen in other states.
    Since the democrats have not let anyone run against him in the primaries, what happens????

    Now information on court record. Whether or not you think the whole thing is crazy , it is now on record and could cause a really big problem for the democrats.

  23. HELENK says:

    every idiot that ever lived must work in the backtrack government.

    unlawful to require high school diploma when hiring???????

      Uh, he doesn’t have an accountant? His wife can’t take the stuff to the accountant? This is a weird story unless he is filing for an instant refund at Ameritax and all he’s got is a W-2.
