Santorum 1. The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum.
either has an incredibly stupid staff or a staff that’s laughing like hyenas behind his back.
Conservatives Unite Moneybomb? CUM! Wow!
Excuse the brief and tardy post, but I’m experiencing terrible computer problems. While I have a moment where it’s actually working, I though I’d write a quick post and get the podcast up…
On the show today, after laughing at Santorum’s expense…
I spoke with Susan Saladoff, the producer/director of the film Hot Coffee. Your homework is to see this movie – lots of info about it on its official website- hotcoffeethemovie.com
And as we do every Monday morning, I commiserated with Crooks and Liars‘ Nicole Belle about all the madness, including the Sunday shows, in our Fools on the Hill segment. Here’s what she brought us this week:
What I think the South Carolina primary showed beyond a reasonable doubt is that the media will do whatever it has to do to create and foster a horse race for their own benefit, their ratings and ad sales. And Saturday, John Heilemann doing the post-primary analysis admitted as such directly.
In order to keep the horse race going, the media goes after whoever is in the lead, giving the others a chance to catch up or overtake them. After a bewildering amount of discussion of Mitt Romney’s tax returns—leading Mitt to tell Chris Wallace that he’ll release his 2010 returns and his 2011 estimates and that it was a mistake to withhold them earlier—not to mention tax havens in the Cayman Islands and showing his prickly responses to those who asked him about those tax returns, Romney went from a two digit lead a week before the South Carolina primary to losing by two digits to Newt Gingrich. As Joe Scarborough said on Meet the Press, the GOP “base is revolting” against Romney.
But now, Newt is in the lead. So now the media is setting their sights on him, and boy, is he a target rich environment. Chris Christie takes a shot off his starboard plank and tells David Gregory that Gingrich “has embarrassed the party”.
Meanwhile, James Clyburn—the sole Democrat booked on the Sunday shows this week—also had some things to say about Newt Gingrich’s campaign strategy as well. Clyburn accused Gingrich of practicing the Southern Strategy of using racist code words.
