  • THIS WILL TURN OUT WELL: House Republicans would have to win back 19 seats in November to “Reclaim Our Majority,” which is why Roy Blunt’s big plan is to back exactly two GOP challengers. [TPM Election Central]

Reaching Our Milking Penis

In essence, these asshats are assisting the Dems “Red to Blue” thing by trying to desperately cling to 17 incumbents while the Dems challenge most (im not sure about all) of the listed rep-incumbents. Perhaps reptards should stop milking their collective penis and go back to the pipe-dreamed world of “moderate.”

EnBuenOra July 1, 2008 at 6:21 pm

That’s okay, they can use Faith Based Math.

Remaining Outside Mainstream Politics — that sounds about right.

If you want to ROMP, then Larry Craig’s your man.

Oh Roy. I warned you to stop sniffing that paint out in back of the barn. Now look what’s happened to your brain. You’re all addled

Brutus Harlot July 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

[re=28024]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Or do they realize how f*ed our country is and figure that if the Dems control everything that they can blame the Dems and take back control in 2010?

Cicada July 1, 2008 at 6:49 pm


1. To play or frolic boisterously.

The ROMP acronym is obviously targeted at The GOP’s target prey – young boys. It’s the acronym equivalent of “Can you help me find my puppy?”

Those sick preverts!

Readily Owned Master Plan

shortsshortsshorts July 1, 2008 at 6:52 pm

[re=28048]Brutus Harlot[/re]: Hopefully by the time that happens though, 1. Oil will be Socialized.
2. Iraq will no longer be on a map
3. Democrats will grow a set
4. Unicorns will finally be protected as a threatened species
5. Al Gore will be cloned
6. Los Angeles will explode
7. All people from the midwest will be forced to evacuate to California, where they will realize that we are not having teh sexy time with anyone or anything while killing Jeebus
and of course
8. Barry will be President.

This suggests to me that 17 other democrats will experience “accidents” in the coming months. Perhaps they will all be attending an occult fundraiser and murdered on the tarmac.

Republicans: Old Malicious Predators

SuperRounder July 1, 2008 at 7:01 pm

This funding decision is based on a complicated equation involving the money they have, the money they think they can raise from their based and contributions from wealthy donors. Also, that new “Don’t Give The Money To Teh Gays” rule.

Cape Clod July 1, 2008 at 7:24 pm

I guess he’s just keeping his expectations realistic. Sort of like being the manager of the Scottish national football team at the start of the World Cup.

Relive Our Massive Phailure

Mahousu July 1, 2008 at 7:26 pm

Roy Blunt is simply following the strategy Kutuzov used against Napoleon. “You’re taking Poland and Lithuania? Fine, have Moscow, too.” Then, this winter, before withdrawing from Moscow, er, Washington, the Republicans will set the whole place on fire.

At least that will take care of Smith Point once and for all.

Mahousu July 1, 2008 at 7:28 pm

[re=28077]Mahousu[/re]: By the way, I should get some sort of award for talking about invasions of Russia and not once mentioning Nazis.

Oops! Too late!

That is all.

El Bombastico July 1, 2008 at 7:45 pm

[re=28076]polar_bear[/re]: “Rub Our Massive Phalluses”. These ARE Republicans we’ve talking about.

Republicans Are Big Losers.
Not the acronym?
HA HA! I am childish and do not care!

Neilist July 1, 2008 at 8:42 pm

[re=28053]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Shorts, old boy:

Los Angeles exploded some time ago.

True, no one here can tell the difference.

But it did happen.

S.Luggo July 1, 2008 at 8:46 pm

[re=28026]EnBuenOra[/re]: Ding, ding, ding.
An aside: Would that be in base 8 or base 12?

ronaldpagan July 1, 2008 at 8:46 pm

Hahaha! The GOP is the underdog and it feels good to be a bully for a change. I thought ROMP was the Republican strategy for the White House…Ruminating On Michelle’s Patriotism.

Rodney Badger July 1, 2008 at 8:48 pm

Sloganeering is not the GOP’s strong suit. These are the same morans who came up with the Change You Deserve slogan that they stole from Effexor.

PUMA, now ROMP. They need to have this election soon. . .

EnBuenOra July 1, 2008 at 8:49 pm

[re=28096]S.Luggo[/re]: That would be base 2.652, carry the 1, and paint everything green because we haven’t had any attacks since 9/11.

KTHXBAI July 1, 2008 at 8:54 pm

This election is going to be so awesome I’m already masturbating to it. The Democrats are going to look like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzneggar teaming up to kick the crap out of a mildew stain.

Never knew that the Orcs had formed a political party. Thanks for the tip, Roy.
BTW, skipped your Respiral? Just asking.

“Reclaim the majority…..in Alabama….maybe”

Mr-Clark July 1, 2008 at 10:38 pm

Ken Layne,

Don’t worry, they could have all taken my investment advice and will win the lottery. It’s nice to know that the RNC has the equivalent of the DNC’s Howard Dean…presumably without the flop-sweat on the Sunday talk shows.

Sincerely and respectfully,

(replace “Pussy” with “Pedophile” or “Pervert” and that last one still holds true.)

[re=28243]ronaldpagan[/re]: Uh, that one might actually attract votes.
