Back away slowly, Canada…

Potential next President of the USA:

CrazyEyes, come on down!

Yes.  It’s true. And amidst the squirming-like-a-toad insanity that’s been holding the collective USian brain in its grip lately, it could happen… a lot more easily than we probably think.

Saner people are already making a mad dash for the exits, raising the Batshit Index of the GOP’s 2012 presidential field a few more points.  Before this is all over, Charles Manson will announce his candidacy.  Why not?  He’s got the eyes for it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Harpie, here’s a Job Creation Program for you:  let’s get that Zombie Wall along the 49th built before 2012.

    Ya, but…..

    You forgot to mention how well she captured the staid, conservative, not crazy-no-way corndog vote.

    Thank you Jesus! Please, please pick Sarah Palin as your Vee Pee.

    That corndog shot is full of win.

    But on a more serious note, the likes of Bachmann and Palin getting so far in US politics does not bode well for the future of women being taken seriously as political leaders. Ugh, what an ugly and demoralizing state of affairs.

      LOL, that’s exactly what I said!

      But yeah, it doesn’t bode well for the future of women being taken seriously in politics. Hillary, the burden is all on you now!

    I thought Mitt Romney was in the lead. Mind you He does have the looks and personality of a funeral director. That would probably mean he’ll most likely have the tea-baggiest running mate carrying his water for him. A funeral director and a bombastic, crazy-eyed tea-bagger against Obama in 2012.

    ck – I think Romney is still the frontrunner among sane Republicans, the business community etc. I would be very surprised if there wasn’t a movement afoot among these people to “Stop Bachmann!”

    As amusing as it is to see Bachmann inch a little closer to being the actual candidate, it’s still very unlikely. My understanding is that the Iowa Poll is considered important for the bible-thumping vote, but not much else.

    I not going to take too much stock into who is “winning” the leadership races right now. After the second or third primary is completed, it’ll become a bit more clearer. After all, other than the Obama girl, not many thought Obama had a chance until then. Kinda like how nobody thought Dion would become the LPC leader until he became everyone’s second choice between Iggy and Ray.

    My personal dark-horse pick is Newt Gingrich. He’s got some name recognition, it’s been long enough that his baggage is mostly forgotten irrelevant now, and he’s got the word rich in his name. What more do the republicans want? Besides, Bachmann will be splitting the batshit crazy vote with Ron Paul early on, sure to hurt her chances.

      Newt!!??? :lol: Really? Is he still running?
      I’m not sure name recognition and being around for a long time will help the Newtster — people seem to want someone who doesn’t represent the “establishment”.

      Anyway, you’re right not to put too much stock in this poll — it’s considered important for socons, but my understanding is that it’s not an indicator of how the general election will go. But it’s fun to think about Bachmann being president (well, fun in kind of a terrifying way, like a roller coaster).

    Don’t forget Rick Perry. He’s another batshitcrazy Dominionist. Plus — I’m too lazy to find the link; you can google — how’s this for ‘family values’? His father-in-law performed his vasectomy.

    I got nuthin’.

    Hmm. Three years ago the Tea Party emerged from nowhere and leftist pundits and bloggers immdiately began penning articles on how stooopid and crazy and dangerous and racist and ill-mannered they were. Since then, the Tea Partiers have organized at a grass roots level, enlisted countless hours of volunteer time from supporters, raised hundreds of millions of dollars, shaken the GOP to its core and elected so many candidates that they now hold the balance of power in Washington. Meanwhile, the left just keeps on writing those same insulting articles. Dynamite strategy!

    Anybody want to try and explain how three generations of universal, compulsory, secular, expert-directed, union-guided public education led to this? I know–it’s the shock jocks. That’s the ticket, the shock jocks!

    • 18 JJ Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at 6:36 am

      “Since then, the Tea Partiers have organized at a grass roots level…”

      Hm, you left something out right about there…
      “…assisted by huge infusions of cash and organizational help from oilmongers like the Koch Bros, the Heritage Foundation, Freedomworks and a plethora of other massively-moneyed right-wing special interests plus an entire TV network devoted to promoting their activities & ideology…”
      There, FIFY :P

      I agree that the TP eventually became a force to be reckoned with, but please: except for the oil-drenched money pit where it started, there’s little difference between teaparty ‘grassroots activism’ and what Obama supporters did in 2008. (Except that very few Obamabots were screaming for John McCain’s birth certificate or accusing him of being a Panamanian usurper.)

      Also: I don’t think anyone but the most delusional leftie would disagree that the TP has had a significant impact on US politics. It was obvious to anyone who was paying attention when the GOP started purging their ranks of anyone who was deemed Insufficiently Right-Wing.

      However, the TP’s success at moving the Overton Window doesn’t preclude ridiculing some of their goofier candidates. Michele Bachmann isn’t a nut because of the tea party, she’s a nut because she’s a nut.

    I swear, if any of these batshit-crazy teabaggers and holy rollers win the next American election, I’m gonna sign myself up as a volunteer to build the world’s tallest wall between us and them! Starting with the Douglas/Peace Arch border crossing!

    • 20 JJ Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at 7:03 pm

      We laugh about it, but it’s amazing how close they get :shock:

      I’m starting to see the benefits of the aerial spraying of prozac over certain regions of the world, primarily the middle east and the USA.
