CNN contributor Erick Erickson doubles down on the crazy. Endorses ‘sweet meteor of death’ in GOP primary.

Erickson’s infamous “Trike Force” in action. Erick Erickson’s peculiar form of crazy is legendary. If they had a Museum of Fucked Up Bloggers, he’d be the All Star MVP of Fucked Upness. I’ve told you about him time and time again. But this is some serious fucked-up shit. Influential conservative blogger Erick Erickson said he ...

“What kind of man would mislead, distort and deceive just to win an election?”

“This man would: Newt Gingrich.” That, from a new ad about to hit the US from Newt Gingrich (except the last NG bit, it actually says, ‘Mitt Romney’) attacking frontrunner Mitt Romney. Which begs the question: does Gingrich have even the remotest sense of self awareness or shame? The ethically-challenged, disgraced former Speaker could be ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Damn the Paulbots!

As much as I agree with many of Ron Paul’s principled stances on various issues, I just cannot stand the cult of over-zealous fanatics that support him… Despite all evidence, these folks simply refuse to accept the fact that Dr. Paul will NOT be the Republican nominee for president. To the contrary, they act as ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: No Heat, No Light

Contrary to expectations and all the advance hype, it was quite a flat, disappointingly ineffective, and weirdly obtuse Republican “debate” hosted by NBC in Florida tonight. That was probably the most heated exchange of the evening – a pointless quibble over what constitutes “lobbying” on behalf of government sponsored entities… Zzzzz. There was almost no ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Über Mitt!

Mitt Romney gets asked what time it is and responds with a stilted history of watch-making through the ages… Good grief, I didn’t even know there was yet another Republican “debate” on the TV machine tonight. Guess I’ll have to view it online now to see if John King followed up by asking WHY Romney’s ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Worst “Debate”… Ever

Good grief, what an abysmal travesty ABC News televised earlier this evening in New Hampshire. Absent any substantive discussion, the most notable “gaffe” the media was able to latch onto (something that’s now supposedly trending in the Twittersphere) was Jon Huntsman’s ill-timed barb at Mitt Romney for being a clueless idiot… delivered, unfortunately for him, ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Oops!

In tonight’s latest installment of the GOP Dating Game, Rick Perry makes it clear that, if elected, he would immediately scrap three federal government departments: Education, Commerce, and… one he’s completely unable to identify by name. In fact, it’s the Department of Energy the dumbstruck Perry was at a loss for naming. Considering he rails ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: GOP Google/Fox Debate

For those who didn’t watch the “debate” last night on TV or participate online, TPM provides a one minute highlight reel of instantly forgettable soundbites: Aside from the unremitting craziness of the GOP hopefuls on stage, Google and Fox set a new standard in terms of the interactive online format that could well become the ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Libertarian Hypocrisy

In the Republican “Tea Party Debate” earlier this week, when Ron Paul was asked whether or not a healthy, uninsured 30-year-old man should be left to die if an unexpected tragedy put him into a coma, he unsurprisingly replied that someone who meets such an unfortunate end without insurance should not get a safety net ...
