Republican Debates Make Me Angry

Meow! Romney and Perry!

But besides the suspect bullshit like Santorum's recalling of DADT and the weird Republican "OMG, what is this internet and Google thing?" for the proles, two items hit me pretty hard.

Bachmann on Religion

She figuratively said that all religious expression should be awesome and open to the public. No one mentioned her "scary Muslims" thoughts and ideals. So Michele, is it okay for Muslims to pray in public? I didn't think so.

Cain's Cancer

Honestly, I was unaware and AWESOME for him. However, he used his personal issue to say that Obamacare would have killed him.

So how about a thought experiment: if you were poor and unemployed and had no insurance, what would have been your chances then without universal healthcare? I know it's Rich People Problems, but, really? You basically said that because you're rich enough to pay for mad scannings and treatments you survived?


Perry won, except for his "badminton" remark. Romney made reference to the "side" people in the debate. Fox marginalized everyone else.

The most interesting part of the debate was the positioning of the candidates, the marginalizing, the posing of the questions to either push up or drop down certain candidates.

The only one missing was Jesus, the question: What is your position on killing prisoners? *Jesus gets booed*


Perry lost. His bit of jabbering was not endearing to the W crowd, and apparently everyone on the right wants to push Mittens. I would love to be there when they decide in their secret bunker that he's the candidate and someone says "Wait, will a Mormon pull the Evangelical Christian vote?" and everyone shits their pants.
