  1. *el barfo*

    1. Sean Penn made up to look like Robert Smith of the Cure… what’s not to like? (Kidding!)

      1. It’s amazing how hard he’s worked to commit career suicide.

        You gotta respect that.

        I didn’t think he could go lower than I Am Sam. I was wrong.

        That clip was harder to watch than Tim Burton’s take on Planet of the Apes, in which the female apes, in their lipstick, looked a lot like Sean Penn in that clip.

        Jesus manesus. He could make any indie film he wanted–why’d he pick that POS? Dude needs somebody normal around for an occasional reality check.

        I think he’s tryin’ too hard for an Oscar or something. He definitely shouldn’t try any harder.

        1. he’s such a good actor, it really is a shame

          heck, i love doggtown and zboys and he narrated that.

          it really is a waste of talent.

        2. Holocaust, cross-dresser, baby-boomer cultural references.

          It’s like someone thre an oscar into a centrifuge, found the base elements, and created an unstable compound from them.

          1. He already did his lovable retard role, so they had to leave that one out.

      2. Disintegration is the best album ever!

  2. OMG! Frothy Fecal Mix is actually winning!

    ‘John’ will be so proud!

  3. I may as well expose my heretical tendencies: If Paul loses, better to lose to Santorum than to Romney (or Bob Barr’s buddy Gingrich).

    The reason is simple: If we can’t have a good candidate, at lest let’s have a candidate who (to my mind) offends all the right people. Sarah Palin would be ideal in this regard, but Santorum will certainly do.

    1. I would take Sarah Palin over any of the other three running. Why all the hate for her? I’m not saying I could vote for her but come on. For one thing she seems amenable to changing marijuana policy for one thing.

      1. “I would take Sarah Palin over any of the other three running.”

        I think this applies to most people on H&R.

        1. It should apply but Palin-derangement knows no bounds.

          1. I was actually making a double entendre.

            1. I figured so but anyway the cosmos wouldn’t even fuck her. they find something distasteful about “breeders”.

          2. Maybe this is the misogynist in me, but I can tell crazy women when I see them, and Palin just has that look in her eyes.

            I mean, aside from her total ignorance, Nixon-like paranoia, and of course the whole resigning from office because it was a drag and she’d rather do reality shows thing.

            You know, it’s like the Republicans are so sure they are guaranteed a win that they think they can nominate a horse and win.

            Romney has his problems, sure, but at least with him a campaign that should really be about spending and the economy won’t end up being about abortion or some shit. Santorum will make it a culture war; well guess what— all the people on his side are already dying to get rid of Obama.

            1. Here’s a perfect example of Palin derangement. Reality television is far more respectable than politics. Not even close.

              Romney has his problems, sure, but at least with him a campaign that should really be about spending and the economy won’t end up being about abortion or some shit.

              Ahahahahahah.

              1. How would it be about spending and the economy with Romney? They’d only be arguing over which controls the government should enact to centrally plan a “recovery” – while the Fed actually attempts that, and fails spectacularly just as it has over the last four years.

        2. “I would take Sarah Palin over any of the other three running.”

          In the same sense that I would take a punch to the face over a kick in the groin.

          1. Exactly

      2. “For one thing she seems amenable to changing marijuana policy for one thing.” This almost sounds like two things (one thing + one thing). Are you high?

        1. Well for one thing I’m only high if you count alcohol as a drug, which I do, so yes, for one thing.

    2. It’s not that I actively wish high blood pressure on my progressive brothers and sisters – in fact, I encourage them to keep their blood pressure down. But watching them go over the top in response to there fairly standard politicians, simply because they believe in traditional marriage and oppose abortion on demand, is immensely entertaining.

      The more victories by Santorum, the more hysterical fainting fits by the Great and the Good, especially as they realize that
      Santorum won among women in Miss and Ala, lost among men.

      1. You are a true libertarian!

        1. You are a Flying-Spaghetti-Monster gaywad.

        2. It’s hilarious to here these people deny that they are anything but Republican fellow travelers. “Both parties suck, so vote Republican!”

          1. There’s an Italian poem I think you should be included in.

          2. Gotta punish the democRATS. It’s their turn.

          3. Fuck you I’m writing in Ben Franklin’s Ghost.

            I think Obama has been shit as President. Why would I vote for his Republican robot twin?

            1. First robot president?

              1. Ah yes, John Quincy Adding Machine. He struck a chord with the voters when he promised not to go on a killing spree.

                1. But, like most politicians he promised more than he could deliver.

        3. He’s not saying he’d vote or has voted for Santorum, Demfag. He’s just saying it’s fucking hilarious for Santorum to keep winning states due to the apoplectic seizures ass clowns like you are having over him.

          1. Demfag? Really, when you get old enough to leave the high school locker room and come up with some better insults than fag, let me know.

            1. That wasn’t to you Tony. It is a play on shrike’s default “christfag” for anyone who doesn’t believe that christians are teh evul!

      2. I think with Santorum you also have to account for that whole “believing my political opponents are possessed by the literal devil” thing.

        He doesn’t have quite the crazy eyes level of nuts that Bachmann had, but he’ll do.

        1. In fairness, the actual belief of Christians is that non-Christians are influenced by the literal devil, not possessed by him.

      3. By ‘traditional marriage’ you mean the abduction of our enemy’s women, right?

        1. Well, that’s my tradition.

  4. I’ve always thought that the main thing wrong with The Straight Story was how much it wasn’t Steve Stevens: Whiny Procrastinating Nazi Hunter.

    Now I don’t feel so alone.

  5. OK wow, now thats what I am talking about dude, very cool indeed.

  6. Puke alert!

  7. Something amusing to watch while we are waiting for Hawaii to vote.

    1. That was pretty cool.

      Reminded me of Breaking Bad as an ABC sitcom

    2. that was wonderful

    3. I’m guessing Romney wins Hawaii — Deep Blue, about 5% Mormon — seems like total Romney territory.

  8. Scientists to bring extinct woolly mammoth back to life with the help of elephants.

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/te…..57183.html

    1. If movies are to believed, this can’t end well.

      1. Depends on what movie. If it ends like Logjammin’, I’d be cool with that.

        1. I want recreated saber tooth tigers and cave bears. Not for science. For the trophy room, of course.

  9. Never ever underestimate the GOP’s ability to snatch defeat from the hands of victory.

    1. And just the other day someone was getting on my case because I said Santorum “almost” won the rep nomination.

      “He won two states, that’s not almost winning anything. He was never a real contender Romney blah blah blah”.

  10. I want to joke about Santorum winning in the South, but really it just makes me sad that fear, hate, and bigotry still thrive.

    1. That was a tweet from @badastronomer

      1. oh a followup:
        “Some people seem to think I’m generalizing the South. I’m not. I *am* saying people respond to Santorum’s message. And that’s what’s so sad.”

        1. If anyone here wanted to get his tweets they would have subscribed.

          Oh, its still more culture war bullshit. Which is sad.

          1. Bad astronomer is a douche. He should stick to talking about bad astronomy.

    2. Fear, hate and bigotry are common throughout the country. Why is this surprising to you? Oh wait, you probably one of those jackasses who think only TEAM RED southerners are like that.

      1. Jackasses? My, my, how very… HATEFUL.

        1. It’s hate all the way down.

    3. Too many otherwise fine individuals have had their politics warped by higher educational culture.

      I’m really warming up to this idea of banning employment discrimination on the basis of educational credentials. Anything and everything to destroy academia. We musn’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good

      1. Surprise. SIV finds common ground with superstitious mouth breathers.

        1. Charles Murray is a superstitious mouth breather? I’ll take allies where I can get ’em.

  11. “human rights” group wants Dante’s Divine Comedy removed from school curricula.

    The President of the group objects to the part in the Inferno “The Prophet Mohammed was subjected to a horrific punishment ? his body was split from end to end so that his entrails dangled out, an image” – she points out – “that offends Islamic culture.” Good for her to share her expertise with us, otherwise we wouldn’t have known if the image would be offensive to Muslims.

    http://tgr.ph/ysxhuc

    1. Even some gay protective of their cultural heritage, despite what Dante does to sodomites in the Inferno (scorched by fiery rain forever):

      Franco Grillini, the leader of the gay group Gaynet, called the censorship proposal “an excess of political correctness.”

    2. Fuck those guys. Dante was an equal opportunity offender.

      1. Yeah, In the Inferno, everyone from Jersey Shore is forced to watch *Cats* for all eternity.

        1. REPEAT but called for

    3. Art cannot be above criticism,” Miss Sereni said.

      Um, OK.

  12. As a Canuck, please expleain how the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam get delegates but no Electoral College votes.

    1. Because voters in the Virgin Islands have proven their political competence, and statehood cannot be far behind.

    2. Not states and parties are technically private clubs.

    3. I’m no sap-swilling seal clubber, but if I recall our Constitution correctly, states elect the President- not individual voters.

    4. The US is unique in that its constitution makes no reference to parties; in fact many of the founders actively discouraged the development of partisan politics. So these entities have no special legal status beyond that of any other political organization and therefore can select their candidate in any way they please. The Republican Party simply decided to include the non-state territories out of party preference, but they were not required to do this, in theory they could select the candidate that they endorsed through reading goats entrails for a sign from the gods if that is what they wanted to do.

      1. I’m fairly convinced that they fix the votes based on a method like this: http://www.southparkstudios.co…..38/bailout

        It’s the only explanation.

        1. A favorite episode!

      2. They could even let foreigners pick their candidates if they wanted… That might actually work well for the Europhile Democrats…

  13. I don’t even have to check the byline when there’s an Eddie Stanky reference in the title.

    Now when Matt starts working in Roy Cullenbine references we’re truly set.

    1. Word! Dope little lick. I’m gonna dl this and throw it in a set.

      Thanks Dagny T!

      1. A friend of mine who happens to be the cracketiest cracker in the world does this dance when drunk. The more people out there doing da stanky legg, the better.

        I’m probably the only retard who didn’t know this Talking Heads song, but it is now one of my favs of theirs. Welch posts are the gifts that keep on giving.

  14. Romney I can see winning a deep blue, high tax state with strong economic ties to the US Navy and other military installations. But Santorum in second? Screw you Hawaii.

    1. Ah, well. It is, as I understand it, a caucus, so there is that – the delegates will likely tend to be higher for Paul than the straw vote.

    2. Well, Paul won the Big Island and lost Maui by 9 votes.

      For some reason those fuckers in Honolulu love Santorum, I guess.

  15. Alabama/Mississippi GOP voters:
    Who do not believe in evolution: 60%/66%
    Who think Obama is a Muslim: 45%/52%
    Who think inter-racial marriage should be illegal: 21%/29%
    Who voted for Ron Paul: 5%/4%

    1. Man fuck ’em, fuck em all. Totally ironic with Ron Paul being the only candidate staunchly on the South’s “side” ala Lysander Spooner.

      Normally, I couldn’t care less about what other people believe. The problem is that their stupidity is allowed to influence and/or grow government or sanction use of force. Such is the evils of democracy. Most can’t separate political beliefs from personal beliefs.

      At this point I’m in favor of getting Santorum in as president just to see the world burn.

      However that won’t be enough. We need to experience some Team Blue’s madness as well (like those cunts who thinks the 1st amendment is bad because Rush hides behind it).

      Then, and only then.. maybe, just maybe, we’ll be ready for some real liberty; for a real dismantling of the leviathan.

      .. but then again, the only thing that we learn from history is that we learn nothing at all

      1. If you want to see the world burn you should vote a straight partisan ticket. Divided government only delays the inevitable.

    2. I’m proud to say I’m among the 5% who voted for Paul in Alabama.

      1. Me too.

  16. Those guys totally seem to have it going on man, I mean like totally.
