Art Threat: Humour: The most vicious way to attack someone – Artwork of illustrator Zina Saunders

When I found Zina Saunders’ [pronounced Zai-nah] animations on Mothers Jones a couple weeks ago I knew I’d have to ask her for a chat. We got on the phone last week and by the time I was off I was texting my friends that she was one of the best interviews I’d . . . → Read More: Art Threat: Humour: The most vicious way to attack someone – Artwork of illustrator Zina Saunders

Drive-by Planet: Rick Santorum to wage war on America’s ‘porn pandemic’

Republican social issues crusader Rick Santorum has described contraception as “a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.” In other words in Santorum’s mind contraceptives are nothing less than a sex-aid that risk turning women into sluts – something Rush Limbaugh could relate . . . → Read More: Drive-by Planet: Rick Santorum to wage war on America’s ‘porn pandemic’

Like porn? You won’t like a Santorum presidency.

In another sign just how dangerous to freedom and the American way Rick Santorum really is, this statement from the presidential contender should send chills down one’s spine.

Current federal “obscenity” laws prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or . . . → Read More: Like porn? You won’t like a Santorum presidency.

Dead Wild Roses: Republican Hypocrisy on Contraception, Liberty, Et Cetera

The government should not impose its values on the people of American, unless of course, its christian religious values. I wonder if anyone in the GOP has read George Orwell’s 1984, because they certainly seem to be running from the same playbook as the Party….

Trashy's World: Yeah.

And go ahead and Google “Santorum”. But don’t do it if you’re eating. Seriously. Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario

The Disaffected Lib: Democrats for Santorum

Recognizing that there’s just not enough hilarity these days:

But, don’t forget Detroit Republicans for Romney

Headline of the day: "Poll: Santorum comes from behind in Alabama three-way"

Courtesy of the blog, Second Front. I’m pretty sure that headline is indeed accidental. While Weld for Birmingham’s headlines can be imaginative, they are not usually not this satirical or sexual.

Tell us Rick Santorum, what is "burning down here"?

Hilarious (and appropriate) short video of a Santorum speech just last night. I knew you had it in you, Rick.

The Disaffected Lib: The Republicans’ Unlikely Champion or The Lord Blesses Obama

Judge Not that Ye Be Not Judged – Matthew 7:1. Apparently Rick Santorum somehow missed that sermon.   The current Republican nomination frontrunner positively delights in judging, and invariably condemning, his fellow Americans for conduct that doesn’t meet his medieval standards. The only thing that has propelled this religious nutjob to the top is the backing . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: The Republicans’ Unlikely Champion or The Lord Blesses Obama

DeSmogBlog: Republicans Aren’t the “Truth Party,” Mr. Santorum. They’re the “Certainty Party.”

225px-Rick_Santorum_official_photo.jpg

Rick Santorum has been talking about the “politicization of science” a lot lately—although (a pet peeve of mine) he seems to have a problem with pronouncing the phrase. He says “polititization.” Check it out here.

Not as bad as the people who say "political-ization," but don't get me started.

Anyway, this is . . . → Read More: DeSmogBlog: Republicans Aren’t the “Truth Party,” Mr. Santorum. They’re the “Certainty Party.”

Sun News Network + Jason Kenney = frothy mixture

If you ever wanted to combine the worst of Conservatism – that frothy mixture of deceit, barely-veiled racism and amoral opportunism – look no further than the perfect marriage of the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism and Fox News North.

Six federal bureaucrats were drafted to pose as new Canadians for a citizenship . . . → Read More: Sun News Network + Jason Kenney = frothy mixture

Submitted without (much) comment

Because sometimes there’s just no comment I could possibly *come* up with that would provide adequate snarkification. From Rick Santorum’s website, what is presumably a money raising promotion with the world’s greatest acronym: It’s still there as of 2:45 Pacific, so the Santorum campaign must be delirious with joy, imagining that the surge of incumming . . . → Read More: Submitted without (much) comment

Rick Santorum and the Right to be Weird

Make no mistake: the frothy Rick Santorum is weird in ways that go light-years beyond grotesque. But when he obligingly provides so much material for his opponents to work with, I wonder if this aspect of his weirdness is appropriate fodder for televised political debate: During a segment on Fox News Monday, Alan Colmes told . . . → Read More: Rick Santorum and the Right to be Weird

Who let the dogs in??

The GOP Primary Reality Clown Show has packed up its balloons and clown shoes and fart whistles and red foam noses and is headed for New Hampshire after a terrifying Tuesday night in Iowa. Terrifying to sane humans, for sure, but even more terrifying to dogs. It’s true: dogs everywhere shuddered in horrified unison Tuesday . . . → Read More: Who let the dogs in??
