  2. HUUH???????????
    I am a long suffering Iowan here & thought I'd seen & heard it all....but even with my BOSE noise canceling headphones on NO ONE can run away. Please we beg you , do not judge Iowa by the unhappy accident that brings them here. Even hard core GOPers I be talked to have thrown up their hands , everyone else is hurling. Eyerolling is the least of it.

  3. I don't judge you, Gabe's mom. Santorum has spent the bulk of his campaign thusfar in Iowa, so it makes sense that he'd do better there than elsewhere. Personally, I'm kind of glad he's gained traction, because he might be the most unelectable of all the GOP candidates.

  4. Referring to the 3/5 Compromise. Doubtful any of you dumbasses even know what that is.

  5. Prepfan - I'll type slowly so you may follow along - the Three-fifths compromise may be found in Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution.

  6. DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CREATORS OF THE SANTORUM DEFINITION THING?

    IT SPEAKS ABOUT THE LAWSUIT HERE:

  8. I'm sorry, I hate Rick Santorum as much as anybody, but if you take as a given that the guy is pro-life then I don't really see the problem here. All he's saying is that Black Americans have had a terrible cultural experience with not being recognized under the Constitution, so in theory a black man would be quicker to sympathize.

    I'm not saying this argument isn't nonsensical (especially the part where he says "There isn't a biologist in the world who would tell you this isn't a human life"), but it just doesn't seem terribly racist to me.

    I'm not trolling; if someone would like to explain it I'll listen. I'm white, so sometimes I miss certain nuances.

  9. Mike.. its not his argument that is racist, so much as him telling Obama and other black americans how they should relate to a particularly racist part american history (well, one of many). In other words, he is in effect, telling Obama how being black should inform his opinion on abortion and the constitution.

  10. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. —2 Timothy 3:1-7 KJV
