VIDEO: Rick Santorum thinks we have an immigration problem … with LEGAL immigrants (UPDATED)

Rick Santorum’s grandfather came to America in 1923 as an immigrant but that fact does not deter him from thinking that we have a big problem in this country that’s “almost as bad” as illegal immigration. The problem, according to Santorum, is LEGAL immigration. According to Santorum, all those legal immigrants coming into America are taking the jobs meant for […]

The GOP Rape Advisory Chart: Volume III

The GOP Rape Advisory Chart: Volume III

Yes, that’s right. Just like Peter Jackson’s production of The Hobbit, I’ve found so much raw material to work with that I decided to break what was originally a single story into two, and now three sections.

Rick Santorum exits stage left

Missed it by THAT much As of this afternoon, we won’t have Rick Santorum to kick around anymore. He has suspended his campaign which, in politispeak, means he reserves the right to get back in if Romney crashes and burns. It’s a shrewd move because if anyone could crash and burn when he has the advantage, it’s Mitt Romney. So, […]

Santorum campaign protest rally outside Mich GOP HQ for that ONE delegate draws three. People.

The never-ending Clown Show™ As I wrote about yesterday, Rick Santorum is fighting tooth and nail for that one Michigan delegate that they believe was inappropriately awarded to Mitt Romney.

These Republicans could […]

Dele-gate Honestly, I never thought that Michigan GOP Primary Clown Show™ would still be the gift to Democrats that keeps on giving a week later but, well, it is. Though the state’s primary was almost a week ago, the Rick Santorum campaign is continuing to dispute the primary’s results. The campaign has taken their fight over the way the Michigan […]
