The totally not gay Rick Perry has become the man to beat in the Republican primary as he has already trounced the former frontrunner Michele Bachmann (aka the Wicked Witch of the Midwest). So all the other candidates spent their time at last night’s Tea Party debate trying to ‘take the polish off of Perry’s boots.’ Let the shoot-out begin!
Thankfully, Talking Points Memo made a 100-second video of the entire cannibalistic affair to spare you some indignity. Excluded from the video: the pandering bit where each GOP says what they would bring to the White House and the the audience cheering the idea of a 30-year-old without medical insurance dying. Oh America, you bitch.

Hey Queerty: Instead of the all-emcompassing trashing of a certain group, why not take the time to pick out who it is among this group who offends you. Because let’s face it: If all heterosexuals were to suddenly, rapturously vanish in the blink of an eye, who would you have left to do the dirty jobs for you? It’s like the female fantasy of a society void of males—it may work in the concept of fantasy, but in reality it would only result in the fall of society as we know it.
@Politically Incorrect Thug: Really? ALL the candidates are offensive.
@Politically Incorrect Thug: GOProud [email protected] is butthurt queety is being vewwy vewwy mean to his candidates. awwwww 🙁

Rick Perry will not be the GOP nominee. He’s too extreme. My money is on Mitt Romney.
I care less who wins the nomination.
There is going to be 2 people looking for Red votes who will split the party and provide a shoe-in for Obama.
Bring it on.
@Pitou: Damn I like the sound of that.
Let’s hope they do split the “Red Vote”, thus giving Obama another term — it sounds wonderful.

It begs the question, what would all of those who cheered do if they lost everything they had, including their health insurance? How would they get access to health care? I hope all those in the GOP Senate and House have declined their big federal government benefits package when they leave office or retire as well as refrain from going on medicare and drawing on social security. Let’s see them all sign a Bachmann style pledge to do just that as a token of good faith to keep their tea party scumbaggers and civil libertarians happy. There wouldn’t be many takers believe me, in fact, it would call their bluff, the bunch of phonys and frauds that they are.
@christopher di spirito: Fundamentalist sky-pixie worshipers firmly embedded in the GOP will never allow a Mormon to get the nomination. Ever. It’s the one situation where their bigotry against anything LGBT ever gets to take a back-seat to anything else. Why do you think the media went gaga over Perry? Ron Paul is scary to them, Palin and Bachmann are widely-recognized lunatics, Santorum has a Google problem, and the rest of the candidates are merely blips on the radar.
My guess is that the powers-that-be have decided that Perry can be “sanitized” in time for the election; if this is so, you will see a whole lot of backpedaling and soft-waffling from Perry in the days ahead. So unless you want to see another gay-hating Texan actively fighting us on all fronts, I recommend people dust off their DNC union cards; I’d rather have a president that doesn’t do enough for us, than a President who actively and gleefully works against us.
Perry is the hollow result of a dumbing down of America.
@christopher di spirito: Mitt Romney is Mormon. He doesn’t stand a chance.
@Politically Incorrect Thug: This is not about filling potholes and washing windows.

@Robert in NYC: Bobby, Bobby, Bobby: In case you haven’t been paying attention, Obamacare has turned out to be a disaster. All of his cronies and their businesses are being allowed “waivers” so they don’t have to be involved in it (because they know it’s a con), the rest of the underpriveleged country is standing around saying, “I still don’t have health care except when I go to the ER and don’t pay my bill,” and—here it comes—the only benefit made currently available to Americans is this: If you’re a total slacker, you can hang around your parents’ house unemployed and uninsured until you’re 27 years old. Wow, such progress. The kicker is that if/when it’s implemented, most Americans will refuse to buy it. And what’s Obama gonna do then? Send us all to Gitmo?
You know Huntsman is doomed when he starts referencing Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and their song, “All Apologies.” The most rationale (and the most hip in a fuddy-duddy way) GOP’er is the only one I can stomach.
