Who is this Rick Santorum? Sounds like Satan-o-rum doesn't it? Anyone who protest to much may be a sheep in wolves clothing.
He wants to kill public education, believes college is bad because liberal professors will indoctrinate students, and women need to be in the kitchen or a maternity ward.
What year does he live in?
The 'circular firing squad' of debating fiends has spawn the Santorum space traveler longing for the 1920's. Women did not have the right to vote, public education was mostly for sons of the wealthy, monopolies ruled the economy to the detriment of everyone but the rich, and white men/ Jim Crow ruled much of the country.
I have news for him--I do not believe the majority of men, women, African Americans, parents wanting their children to have a better life, forward thinking people of any ilk or reasonable Republicans can abide these ridiculous diatribes. The bigger question is who are these people who want him to be President?

I apologize for the length, but this was a note that I first posted on facebook last weekend. It may rile some feathers, but sometimes a good spring cleaning is needed:
Since last January, I have been watching and listening very closely to many of the elected officials, activists and hanger-ons after the Republicans gained complete control of the General Assembly; a feat unseen in over 120 years. With this historic win come the fruits of victory, and in this case it meant the ability to redraw the state's legislative and congressional maps.
After a three judge panel refused to delay the 2012 primary date (and in essence the filing period), we have seen scores of veteran democrats dropiing like flies. This is in NO WAY an attack on them-I thank them for their willingness to step up and serve! However, this has given me pause to think about the bigger picture, and despite of the incoming fire that will surely follow, my thoughts:

The Democratic Party and President Obama’s re-election brain trust are doing cartwheels and giving each other high-fives over the news that Newt Gingrich is surging in the polls in Florida and won the South Carolina primary.
“Thank you, thank you, and thank you. We couldn’t have done it better ourselves! You have just voted for a candidate who is viewed unfavorably by 60% of American voters according to the non-partisan Public Policy Polling organization! If there is less popular American politician not currently serving time in prison, we are not aware of one. We are hoping and praying that other Republican Primary voters follow your example and vote for Newt “open marriage” “grandiose” “dump your wives as soon as they get sick” Gingrich in future primaries.

As the next Congressional fight over payroll tax extensions and unemployment benefits and pipelines gets set up in the next few weeks for either its final chapter or to be kicked down the road a bit farther, one or the other, you’re going to hear a lot from our Republican friends about how much they value work and workers; most especially, they’ll tell you, they value American jobs for American workers.
After all, they’ll say, creating American jobs is the most important thing of all.
But if we were to look back over just the last few months, some would tell us, we could quickly find examples of how Republicans promote ideas that don’t seem to value work or workers at all, much less American jobs.
Well as it turns out, “some” seem to be right; to illustrate one of those examples we’ll look back a month or two or three to a time some Republicans might wish was long, long, ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

My own father cheated on my mother and left us for a younger woman…those were hard times.

Rebublicans are lining up to challenge Congressman Larry Kissell in the newly redrawn 8th Congressional District. Despite his conservative leanings, the gerrymandered districts drawn by the Republican legislature will make it more difficult for Kissell to win reelection.
The following is a cursory glance at the candidates who have declared their intentions to run in North Carolina's 8th District. Stu Rothenberg has said it would take a miracle for Kissell to win. So folks....which one do you want in Washington in his place?
