Rick Santorum Welcomes You To Obama’s Murder Colony

by Jim Newell

Where farts come out of your earRick Santorum has taken a breather from losing the Republican presidential nomination to put out this ad, “Obamaville,” showing “a small, American town two years from now if Obama is reelected.” It shows poor people being poor and having no money, suffering from the financial maladies of the times. It’s just like how Obamaville is right now, or how Romneyville or Santorumville (gross) will be two years from now. (It is slightly better than Gingrichville, though, since it the residents haven’t nuked themselves.)

The best image is that of the fellow holding a gas pump to the temple of his head, as though to kill himself. Does he have any idea how much that would cost if he did it?

And then the living Real Americans, after having Obama take all of their money that they never had, just sit around watching Wall Streeters on their several television sets stacked atop each other. Despite the post-apocalyptic level of poverty afflicting Obamaville, it will apparently be the norm for these Americans to watch several television sets at the same time. So yeah, this rings true. Ace ad from Weird Rick!

But the danger from drowning in the toxic sludge at Santorum Acres would be worse.

Terry March 26, 2012 at 9:19 am

Don't forget all the poor women dying in childbirth. Fun times!

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:31 am

At least they'd be propped up out of the sludge by their transvaginal wands.

James Michael Curley March 26, 2012 at 9:05 am

Will my Farmville avitar work in Obamaville, cause that damn thing don't wanna work any where, just collect welfare.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 9:06 am

I would go to church and pray that this never happens, but OBAMA HAS CLOSED ALL THE CHURCHES!!!!!!

Shouldn't that read "All Ass, Babylon"?

sezme March 26, 2012 at 9:07 am

Well, expensive though it may be, at least it's gasoline that comes out of that pump, not that frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that's sometimes the byproduct of electing Rick Santorum President.

SoBeach March 26, 2012 at 9:08 am

How could that ad NOT start with the ominous and obligatory "In a world…"

Fail.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 9:14 am

Don LaFontaine is gone, and we live in a diminished age.

In a world…where voiceovers no no longer say "in a world…" (Because Obama has eliminated freedom, mostly)

not that Dewey March 26, 2012 at 11:01 am

They could get the guy from "The President's Speech"…

In a world where a Don LaFontaine impersonator lays voiceovers on a parody video for Obama…

I liked the Randall Flagg reference at the beginning, with the crows. Also, a little subliminal racism with that, neh? Crows, get it?

You mean like these crows?

Très Southland Tales!

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 9:10 am

I like the very subtle bit where, at the words "sworn American enemy," the TV screen flashes between images of Ahmadinejad and Obama. It's a thoughtful contribution to responsible political discourse.

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 9:32 am

I'm surprised there was no subtle shot of a birf certificate. Rick's.

Callyson March 26, 2012 at 12:36 pm

They were talking about that on NPR, and the Santorum lackey, I mean spokesperson, was seriously trying to deny that they were trying to equate Obama and Ahmadinejad. "No, we were just alluding to his failed Iran policy."
Why the reporter's response was not to ROTFL, I have no idea…

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 12:52 pm

I guess I don't understand why, after the Somali pirates, Osama Bin Laden, and Muammar Quadaffi (Quadaffy, Ghadafi, etc.) they still believe that they can try to tie the President to Islam.
Do they really believe that pandering to the less than 20% of the American population that believe that shit, is really the way to win the election?
But after the Etch-A-Sketch fiasco of last week, the answer has to be, yes. Yes they do.

CthuNHu March 26, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Normal, non-sociopathic person: This evil, horrible, despicable, defamatory thing I could say about this person I don't like is glaringly false, so I won't say it.

I only have flat screen TVs, which don't stack well at all. What to do?

I like cheesy grits. And catfish.

That chick in the kitchen at 0:20 is kinda hot. Maybe I'll vote for Santorum!

BaldarTFlagass March 26, 2012 at 9:11 am

I am sure that Rod Serling was a typical hollywood liberal, and would not approve of this message.

HistoriCat March 26, 2012 at 11:27 am

Rod Serling was a Unitarian – obviously he was a liberal and a commie.

cheetojeebus March 26, 2012 at 9:12 am

Rod Serling is gonna claw his way out of his grave and literally skull fuck the editor and narrator of this in anger.

Oh what tribulating times we life in when a bullet is cheaper than a squirt of gas.

Ain't watching this. I try and avoid stepping in Santorum.

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 9:18 am

Please, we all know Gingrichville would be on the moon.

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 9:18 am

That nice, christian, down home working man's hero, Rick Santorum is quite a lying asshole.

Was that filmed in an old Pennsylvania steel town?

OC_Surf_Serf March 26, 2012 at 9:20 am

Holy crap what's with the blinking nightmare tree at 0:46? Anyone else see that? Gyah!

Mumbletypeg March 26, 2012 at 9:27 am

I cannot watch it here from work. But the still shot, shown above, reminds me of "Lost Highway" promo/ imagery. So the "blinking nightmare" I'm picturing right now is one Robert Blake, in greasepaint, uttering that horrible laugh to terrorize Bill Pullman over the phone.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 9:29 am

It's part of Obama's insane regulatory restrictions on manufacturers: All trees must now be equipped with high beams.

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 9:33 am

And be the right height.

FlownOver March 26, 2012 at 9:46 am

And hang heavy with strange fruit.

SkinnyNerd March 26, 2012 at 10:27 am

The shot at the end with all the trees reminded me of Twin Peaks. Damn, I really liked that show. Looks like a wonderful place to live. Now where's Bob?

Time was you could get an abortion for a nickel and stop by the gumball machine on the way out. Why do you hate America, Obama?

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 9:41 am

Onion belt. I'll bet nobody ever thought of THAT before!!

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:50 am

I remember running down to the corner abortion shop with a quarter in my hand, and picking out the fetuses I wanted to abort.

"Gimme six of them, and four of them, and can I have the root beer candy one? I'll deliver the papers to old Mrs. Johnson for ya!"

Now, I gotta buy them by the jumbo bag with a discount card. And that means I have to pick the blacks ones out to enjoy the others.

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Those Sam's Choice fetuses certainly don't have that same homemade taste that I remember from my youth.

Where were the Obama sponsored hobo fights?

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:43 am

Didn't you see them on the TV just before the political ads to re-re-elect Obama/Ahmadinejad '14?

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 9:23 am

"Can switching to Geico really save you 15% or more on car insurance? Has Barack Obama authorized FEMA, the Justice Department and the IRS to establish White Slavery?

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 9:26 am

That attack ad would've been a whole lot better if he farmed it out to RonCo.

Santorumville is where no one has sex unless the Ayatollah Santorum says it's okay.

ManchuCandidate March 26, 2012 at 9:27 am

Oh irony. Santorum is pissed because we never listened to him and his ilk during the blowing up of the housing bubble. If we had listened to the wingnuts (ie done nothing) when the world economize nearly shit the bed in 08/09, we'd all be neck deep in economic Santorum.

SorosBot March 26, 2012 at 9:29 am

Why is it a stupid small town, instead of an actual city where real Americans live?

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 9:32 am

Anyone who takes mass transit is not a Real American.

ThundercatHo March 26, 2012 at 9:46 am

Because then they would have to show urban youths in hoodies and saggy pants standing around on street corners eating Skittles and Rick's crack team decided it wouldn't be a good time to rile up the blahs.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:46 am

Because cities themselves were obliterated by Ahmadinejad's sekrit weppuns program that only a Presnidet Santorum could have wiped out.

Callyson March 26, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Cities scare Frothy. They're filled with blahs, people who have recreational sex, and non closeted gheyz.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:30 am

Odd it doesn't end with Rick Santorum tearing down a snow-covered street shouting, "Merry Christmas, you beautiful building and loan!"

Tundra Grifter March 26, 2012 at 9:35 am

actor212;

I was thinking the same thing! Somebody saw "It's a Wonderful Life" too many times.

That's probably Li'l Ricky's answer when someone at FoxPAC asks him another gotcha question: "What's your favorite movie?"

Guppy March 26, 2012 at 10:21 am

When doesn't he loudly proclaim his love for a bank?

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:58 am

The dark secret of the Santoum campaign is his multiple arrests for sexually assaulting the night deposit slots.

Guppy March 26, 2012 at 12:42 pm

And he refuses to allow the banks access to emergency contraception!

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 1:04 pm

If only those poor people had been snobby enough to go to college. Then they wouldn't have to live in haunted houses and practice cannibalism.

mrblifil March 26, 2012 at 9:50 am

Plenty of stock photography and stock video footage tossed in there. History shows Republicans never, but never, pay for permission to use stock photos and video. Also: worst. Gay. Porn. Evar.

Obamaville?

These Facebook games are getting out of hand.

Mumbletypeg March 26, 2012 at 9:51 am

Santorum could take a tip or three from the original McCain campaign media team: vintage wonkette headlined, "Barack Obama is Personally Raising Your Gas Prices."

'Tanks' for the memories, Newell!~

At least in Obamaville the poor people will have insurance and not be turned away at the hospital admissions office as they are now. In Santorumville the rich people will be partying as they foreclose on the people shown in this video.

Chichikovovich March 26, 2012 at 10:02 am

That place is paradise! They have full bowls of fruit on the table, they're driving new SUV's, have nice looking watches on their wrists (is the smoker giving us the eyeball at 0:52 supposed to be George Zimmerman?) and they have color TV's! These people aren't "poor"! They're wealthy beyond the imagining of people in other countries!

[And at 0:12, is that one of those $300 basketball shoes I keep reading about on right-wing sites?]

MilwaukeeKent March 26, 2012 at 10:06 am

The shady guys in the smoke-filled room, right? They're writing their own notes and drinking out of those cheap styrofoam coffee cups you get at gas stations.

Imagine a small American town two years from now if Obama is re-elected.
Playground equipment is creaky, and childrens' shoelaces go untied.
Sexy librarians don't let you talk, while outdoors large turds roam the streets.
Families appreciate produce and Diane Arbus, and hospitals have empty beds.
Your tank holds over 37 gallons, and with gas under $2.50 a gallon people are using it to wash their hair. Whoops, better put out that candle!
Old people are still creepy — where does the time go?
Meanwhile, Max Headroom pre-enactors watch Ahmadinejad and his cloned Crimson Guard parade, symmetrical trees are evil, cheers! I'm drinking water!
Labor law is so bad, I got fired for having a plant at my desk – and I work at home!
Lewis Black is cruising around your neighborhood in a minivan, ranting about the Blair Witch Project, people who can't spell, cold sores, and people who stand too close to the camera.
