Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Jon Huntsman will be off the ballot also seeing they failed amass the required amount of signatures. As it stands the only nominees to make it ...

Perry makes serious strategy mistake in Virginia, will miss primary

A probable election error by the Perry campaign has turned into a definite faux pas – Perry is off the primary ballot in Virginia due to his inability to secure the needed number of valid signatures.

Come On, GOP!

Let’s pause for a moment and assess the GOP frontrunners: It’s come to light this week that Ron Paul’s newsletter didn’t publish just one possibly racist article, it printed several definitely racist articles. From Mark Mayberry at The Truth About Bills: The comments below seem to be the most notable: • “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I ...

The Basis Of Big Government?

Let me ask you, the reader, this question: What motivates a person to believe that a government which controls every aspect of your life, your business, your personal habits, and your body, is a good idea? To answer the question, let me emphasize the word your. Your life, your business, your habits, your body. We all know that big-government proponents seek ...

Only One Candidate Can Name Their Favorite Supreme Court Justice (Sorta)

At last night’s debate, Megyn Kelly made what seemed like a simple request.  Name your favorite Supreme Court justice.  For some reason, only candidate (barely) was able to pull it off. I mean, wouldn’t it have been awesome if each candidate just rattled off their favorite justice?  But, no.  They all had to get long-winded and then not even have ...

Fox News GOP Debate Recap: Are You More Conservative Than a 5th Grader?

Fox News hosted yet another GOP Primary debate on Thursday night and the entire field was there…well, besides Gary Johnson, but is he in “the field” these days, really?  From the top the thing that interested me the most was that this debate seemed to be set up as the “are you conservative enough” debate.  I liked that.  I like ...

Cannibalism: Why I WON’T Be Watching the Debate Tonight

Commandment 11: Thou shalt not speak ill of thy fellow Republicans, for in the day that thou do, thou shalt surely die… Somebody call a coroner. If Reagan’s 11th commandment is indeed true, then we are just going to see seven corpses on stage tonight. It strikes me odd that all of these candidates hearken back to Reagan as the ...

Rick Perry: A Man Of Great Soul

Until yesterday, I wasn’t completely sure why I liked Rick Perry so much. I have a list of reasons, but none of them really got to the root of why I like him. Yesterday the reason finally dawned on me. I watched this wonderful 11-minute video from Ben Howe entitled “The Rick Perry I Know”… … and I had a revelation: Rick ...

7 Reasons Why Mitt’s A Misfit

The Republican Establishment is fit to be tied.  Mitt Romney is their guy.  He’s the heir apparent to the Republican presidential nomination.  Next in line.  Experienced.  Well-funded.  Former governor.  Businessman.  Presidential looking.  He is well organized in key primary states.  But, it seems that the Republican electorate is not persuaded.  Mitt can’t seem to convince more than about 25% of ...

Diane Sawyer Impressed by Iowa Hicks and Their Book-learnin' : Debate Recap

ABC held yet another Republican debate at Drake University in Iowa Saturday.  Diane Sawyer moderated along with George Steph….. oh you know who he is, don’t make me spell the whole thing.  The GOP field is becoming smaller and it seems to make for a much more interesting debate process.  There was arguing, bickering and even a few jokes.  All ...

Iowa GOP Debate Recap… Kinda

It has been awhile since I recapped a debate. Mostly because of that pesky drinking rule that came with “9-9-9”, but since it was only invoked two or three times tonight, I am still sober enough to present to my twelve loyal readers a recap of the debate @GaltsGirl style! If you are interested in what people other than myself ...
