In Process: A Report On Surveillance By The 2016 Presidential Candidates

This report, which we will update several times during the primary campaign and general election, will summarize what actions the different declared and likely presidential candidates are taking to incorporate surveillance software into their own political web sites. [...]

My Own New York Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Poll

Yesterday, I received a New York Voter Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Polling Ballot in the mail. Why would I receive a presidential preference poll from the Republicans, when I’ve never voted for a Republican in my life? I suppose the GOP data bots were programmed to note that I’m a political independent, and bring me [...]

Rick Santorum is Running for President in 2016: Remember…

that Republican former Senator Rick Santorum is preparing to run for President in 2016, guaranteeing that the debate in the GOP primaries will be pulled to the right in an entertaining manner. Say whatever you like about Rick Santorum’s politics (please, go ahead), but he sure is fun to watch. Take a walk down [...]

Santorum Suicide By Gasoline

It’s strange to me that Rick Santorum would choose to use this particular image in a campaign ad, because what the picture shows is suicide through the means of gasoline. It looks to me like a statement that our dependence upon gasoline is killing our society. That’s a message that doesn’t support Santorum’s freak out about gasoline prices. It suggests that we all need to relax, walk away from the gasoline pump, and simply drive our cars less when the price of gasoline is high. [...]

Reading the Auras of The Presidential Candidates

After a divine revelation, I have realized the power to see the auras of the 2012 Republican presidential candidates, magical fields of energy emanating from their bodies. [...]

Is Eating Fried Food Pro-Life?

Given the pro-Santorum PAC’s payment’s to Tubby’s Tank House, it seems that what PRO-LIFE means is that fertilized eggs get full human rights, but people are encouraged to go ahead and take the fast track to a heart attack after they’re born. [...]

Rick Santorum Relies on an Advisory Boar

I guess they’re hoping that if they root around for long enough, they’ll find a reason for voters to support Rick Santorum. When pigs fly! You can’t make a silk purse out of a… You get the idea. [...]

Secular Activists: Let’s Make Rick Santorum Vomit

Let’s send letters to Santorum, with no other content than the message, “Mr. Santorum, I support the separation of church and state.” Every time he reads one of these letters, Santorum will get the urge to puke. [...]

You Islamic Radical – Oops – I Mean Environmentalist!

After people heard her accuse President Obama of being a secret Muslim extremist, Alice Stewart came back to MSNBC and said that her use of the phrase “radical Islamic” was just a slip of the tongue. We all can understand that, right? Why, just the other day, I was at the grocery store, and I asked the man at the deli counter for some “thinly sliced radical Islamic”. [...]

A Map of 2012 Maine Republican Caucus Results by County (Or Is It?)

2/17 Update: the Maine GOP has retracted its official results for Washington and Waldo Counties, promising after considerable pressure to count caucus votes that had gone uncounted. A new count will be made at the March 10 meeting of the Republican State Committee. See this space for further updates.

2/15 Update: See the end of [...]
