MEDIA IS THE NEW WELFARE QUEENS  9:48 am March 26, 2012

Rick Santorum Yells Rude Swear at Terrible Liberal Media (VIDEO!)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Deeper Why is the terrible liberal media forcing Rick Santorum to yell swears at them by repeating his words back to him and asking about them? WHYYYYYY?
Because they are the liberal media, duh. They could no more stop forcing Rick Santorum to yell rude swears at them by repeating his words and asking questions about them, than they could stop being terrorists. It’s just who they are. And that is why Rick Santorum told Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times to stop distorting his words, it is ********! (The word is “bullshit.”) Seriously, you gotta see this perfect koan of a CBS video, in which they show Santorum’s words, Zeleny asking about them, and Santorum freaking out, lyinnnnnng, and then clearly having to talk himself down from just cold delivering a physical beatdown on poor Zeleny, after the jump. But is there whining? THERE IS THAT TOO!

That 3 am telephone call, Ricky, it's coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE!

memzilla March 26, 2012 at 10:03 am

I remember that movie, Dial M For Moran.

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 10:22 am

Bastard's unhinged from someone asking him a question.

Callyson March 26, 2012 at 12:42 pm

"Ricky, this is God calling. STFU already. No, really. I only wanted you to run for President for the good laughs you would give us, but now your time is done. Go back to Virginia and let the grown ups take over now. And stop saying that your attempt to enforce your sexual hangups in public policies is some kind of religious issue."

Biel_ze_Bubba March 27, 2012 at 2:33 am

I figured it would coming from inside his head.

BaldarTFlagass March 26, 2012 at 9:53 am

Bullshit? Horseshit! Tough shit.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

I never imagined the day I'd see bullshit coming out of a candy-ass

ManchuCandidate March 26, 2012 at 9:53 am

Well to be fair crybaby, (to bring out that tired old Wingnut trope) you do it too.

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 9:53 am

Two Santorum posts in a row. The minute I got up I knew this morning was going to be full of shit.

Kakkeltje March 26, 2012 at 11:59 am

mixed with lube?

Gratuitous World March 26, 2012 at 9:53 am

The transplant is the first heart Cheney has ever had.

Stenography – the only acceptable form of reporting.

If we allow reporters to ask questions, why – they might ask questions! This, of course, is communism. And baby murder.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

The First Amendment doesn't give people the right to ask mean questions.

not that Dewey March 26, 2012 at 11:23 am

But the 2nd amendment gives us the right to shoot journalists, in self-defense. Especially if we feel threatened by their questions.

MosesInvests March 26, 2012 at 11:37 am

Even if they're not wearing hoodies and/or carrying Skittles?

not that Dewey March 26, 2012 at 11:46 am

Especially if they're not wearing hoodies! It's just like Obama taking away our guns by not taking away our guns.

starfanglednut March 26, 2012 at 5:08 pm

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:00 am

Did she drop her American Girl doll? Is that why she ducked?

SkinnyNerd March 26, 2012 at 10:45 am

At 1:42 she tries to calm him down a bit, but he just shakes his head defiantly and goes on.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:48 am

I'm surprised he didn't say "Shut up, bitch, I'm talking here!"

starfanglednut March 26, 2012 at 5:13 pm

First the baby jesus cries, and then ricky has to put a quarter in the jar for the fund to visit the creation museum.

Nopantsmcgee March 26, 2012 at 9:54 am

The stress has become too much. He should just quit and go spend more time with his wife, kids and fetus jars.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:55 am

Is that a frozen santorum cone?

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 9:55 am

This will not play well in Obamaville.

memzilla March 26, 2012 at 9:56 am

"The media is distorting what I am saying" = "The media is quoting me verbatim."

Ricky, Ricky… remember your Orwell. It takes at least a day for your old words to reach the memory hole at the Ministry of Truth.

Terry March 26, 2012 at 10:58 am

It's not just Rick. There's a big section of the GOP base who actually believes that quoting a GOP candidate verbatim is a gotcha question.

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 1:09 pm

They hang out at the Conservatives For Palin website.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:56 am

I see where Nate Thurm will be hired on as an image consultant shortly.

DemmeFatale March 26, 2012 at 10:27 am

Two demoralizing Santorum posts, obliterated by the hilarious presence of Nathan Thurm (and his cigarette), and Irving "Bouncy C" Cohen!
Thanks!

WunkRocker March 26, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Dalton Trumbo called…

sbj1964 March 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

Santorum just has not been right since the anal leakage caused him to lose his mind.

cheetojeebus March 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

This is bad news for Dairy Queen.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 9:58 am

You leave Michele Bachmann out of this!

Pookums March 26, 2012 at 10:05 am

HEY HEY HEY. She's from MN, not WI.

Chichikovovich March 26, 2012 at 10:17 am

You mean Marcus Bachmann.

mavenmaven March 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

No one knows about s#!% the way Santorum does!

Steverino247 March 26, 2012 at 9:58 am

Look at those fucking eyes. This guy is seriously crazy.

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 10:04 am

Well, you know, Republicans.

MissNancyPriss March 26, 2012 at 11:38 am

DON'T look at those eyes.

Steverino247 March 26, 2012 at 12:49 pm

What have you done to his eyes? You MANIACS!

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Didn't even have to look at his face. Seriously, who goes through life with a last name that means the resulting substance of lube and anal sex? I mean, that right there leads you to believe that the man is mentally unhinged.

tcaalaw March 26, 2012 at 9:58 am

Someone please tell me that the woman in the blue dress isn't the same daughter who was shown crying in the plaid dress back when Santorum lost his senate seat. Because I can't fap to the video if that's the case.

Biff March 26, 2012 at 10:36 am

I hate to break it to you, but then you'll just shout "bullshit" anyway.

deanbooth March 26, 2012 at 10:00 am

Well, who is the worst Republican? …All of them, Katie!

Crank_Tango March 26, 2012 at 10:00 am

Santorum is in the tank for….I dunno but for god's sake will someone empty the tank!

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Just flush it.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:00 am

Why does the truth hate Rick Santorum???????

HistoriCat March 26, 2012 at 12:14 pm

The truth wanted to be part of the in-crowd.

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Many, many reasons.

memzilla March 26, 2012 at 10:00 am

I still can't decide if AstroGlide® should sue Santorum or hire him as their spokesman. On the one hand, ick. On the other hand, Google™ rank!

Limeylizzie March 26, 2012 at 10:02 am

OK, at about 1.13 he looks mentally ill ,as that eye furthest away from the camera gets really open and frozen in hate.

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 10:06 am

If he's ever in a room with Michelle Bachmann, it will be an overwhelming singularity of hate-sanity.

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

I see you have bleached all the Republican debates from last year out of your brain.

sullivanst March 26, 2012 at 10:33 am

James Michael Curley March 26, 2012 at 10:07 am

Stroke!

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 10:09 am

The people behind him look like people who are on the subway, (express train), and a nutjob just cold starts going off. You're just a captive audience and you can't get away, can't look away, and hope the nutjob doesn't boil over. They look just like that.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:19 am

Oddly, those nutjobs are usually witnessing for the Lord, too.

Biff March 26, 2012 at 10:38 am

Where's George Zimmerman when you need him?

prommie March 26, 2012 at 10:26 am

Correction: At that point, he looks more noticeably mentally ill than he normally looks.

Limeylizzie March 26, 2012 at 10:54 am

True.

RadioStalingrad March 26, 2012 at 10:02 am

Needs moar hoodies.

BarackMyWorld March 26, 2012 at 10:03 am

This is why Santorum should start using a teleprompter.

HippieEsq March 26, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Would interfere with his channeling direct ordres from heaven.

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I was thinking he should start using Valium.

Limeylizzie March 26, 2012 at 10:05 am

His using the word "Bullshit" means I can openly, and frequently, call him a Catholic Cunt, right?

freakishlywrong March 26, 2012 at 10:11 am

Yes.

Limeylizzie March 26, 2012 at 10:15 am

Oh goody!

prommie March 26, 2012 at 10:25 am

You can call him a fucking papist cunt, too.

Rotundo_ March 26, 2012 at 5:27 pm

GreatChristiano March 26, 2012 at 10:06 am

A liar needs a good memory, but hey–if we are gonna start holding these candidates to their words, it will get messy.

weej_bain March 26, 2012 at 10:07 am

Fecally frothy. Less filling too, also.

MadBrahms March 26, 2012 at 10:07 am

The CBS guy is such a dick to him, as he should be. "You sound upset about something."

Beautiful.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 10:08 am

I liked the stop-smoking ad at the beginning with the dying lady getting a sponge bath.

not that Dewey March 26, 2012 at 11:25 am

With a contraceptive sponge!

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Even I can't fap to that.

James Michael Curley March 26, 2012 at 10:08 am

Then he walked half way around the world while the NYTimes was putting its boots on.

Excellent.

prommie March 26, 2012 at 11:17 am

He just flat-out loses it whenever he's not wearing a sweater vest.

Oooh! That's a great idea. I may need one on election night.

Pragmatist2 March 26, 2012 at 10:10 am

Whoa!!!!!
What's with the bracelets he is wearing????
Isn't that kind of, dare I say it, gay?

valthemus March 26, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Santorum gay? No! No, no, no!! We don't want him! WE DON'T WANT HIM!!!

From the same story, found on msnbc.com:

"In an earlier rally in Fond du Lac, WI, Santorum drew an overflow crowd."

Well duh, msnbc — I'd join a crowd of oglers too if I thought I could see a politician's head spin from steam whistling out of his ears! Also, overflow from santorum, ew.

Rotundo_ March 26, 2012 at 5:35 pm

It's Fondy-the fascists are thick in those parts, Oshkosh, Appleton et environs. Between them and Waukesha you have the thick moneybelt of Wisconsin Republicans. The counties beyond those in the southeast and Fox valley that vote republican are bumpkin country, stump jumpers, and sisterbreeding specialists.

Circus World Museum… Truth?

LiveToServeYa March 26, 2012 at 10:13 am

…and then the petard exploded, sending Santorum flying onto various walls. Of course, it was his own petard … for great justice. The guy to the right looks like he's having to smother a laugh at the beginning.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

Can we still say "petard"?

The poor petards can't help what they are.

Was the "oath" he uttered the "If You Quote Me It Didn't Happen" reverse-swear, perfected by rival Gingrich?

GreatChristiano March 26, 2012 at 10:52 am

I think it was more, "If I see it, it's bullshit" oath, thusly redacting previous unspoke claim.

smashedinhat March 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

Keep digging that hole Ricky. Probably upset that he's left his special love sock in the drawer at home.

GreatChristiano March 26, 2012 at 10:53 am

Ahhh, you know who else misses his "special love sock"???

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Mick Foley?

e_z March 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

"Follow up question Mr Santorum" the reporter then asked if…" that Bull Shit contained a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter"?

At which point Rick's exploded.

Game, Set, match.

Fuckin' Media.

actor212 March 26, 2012 at 10:17 am

Is that Guy Smiley introducing the clip? He seriously needs a face lift!

Chill-A-Sketch March 26, 2012 at 10:18 am

Until now, I was pretty sure that Frothy was going to be the nominee. This changes everything.

GreatChristiano March 26, 2012 at 10:26 am

No, no, Newt will be the nominee–he said so.

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 10:20 am

It's not such a big fucking deal, is it?

Mumbletypeg March 26, 2012 at 11:01 am

As a Canadian you must be a native speaker, whereas I "adopted" the language during school years.
"Je vous en prie" was the expression my memory summoned first. I would say it was the "more familiar" construction of word choice, but therein results multiple meanings of "familiar" ['tu' vs. 'vous'] and I risk muddling my intended connotation all over again!

prommie March 26, 2012 at 10:22 am

That girl looks so traumatized.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

Well, damn it, I am going to have to sort of defend the frothmeister here a little–there really is a difference between calling Romney "the worst Republican" and calling him "the worst Republican to run against Obama, particularly on the issue of health care."

Qualifying phrases matter. If they didn't then we would have to be nauseated by ALL kinds of frothy mixtures, not merely the ones that are composed of lube and fecal matter, which are sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.

On the other hand, completely losing your shit when you're asked the question is kind of, you know, not especially Presidential. Grow up, ya pissy little whiner.

Lucky for Santorum, the WORST Republican still running is Gingrich.

Burgdorf March 26, 2012 at 11:15 am

FDR once said "Democracy cannot succeed…" What a communist. Why did we elect him for 3 terms? Wait, what? there is more to that quote and I deliberately stopped half way through in order to try and provoke a response and drum up some news?

As much as I hate Santorum, I kinda get his rage. This reporter should know better than to pull that amateur crap, and I am kinda glad ol' brown and frothy called him out on it.

swordfis March 26, 2012 at 11:30 am

He said what the reporter quoted word for word "Romney is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Obama." He may have said it in the context of Romneycare, but the message is clear. It's a low and idiotic thing to say.

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Frothy's trying to have it both ways there, Radar:
"Romney is the WORST Republican in the COUNTRY, pause, to put up against Obama"
"You said that Romney was the worst Republican in the cou–"
"AHHH TH' LIB'RUL MEDIA IS TWISTING MY WORDS!"
Also he totally has that Produce Pete whine going on there.

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 3:04 pm

so is there more to the quote than is in the online video?

Arishii March 26, 2012 at 5:31 pm

If he can't manage turn that question into something benign he's truly limited as a public speaker or negotiator.
Q: "You said that Mitt Romney is the worst Republican in the country. Is that true?"
A: Yes. In the context of Obamacare, I believe that to be true.
Why jump the shark?

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Real Republicans don't do that. Real Republicans use every opportunity to attack the New York Times, home of flaming liberals like Judith Miller and Ross Douthat. It's surprising Frothy let the guy finish his question.

sullivanst March 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

"Asking that question shows you don't care at all about the truth"

Because everybody knows that if you care about the truth, you never ask questions…

V572 Flambé March 26, 2012 at 10:24 am

Rick Santorum is the whiniest, most sniveling, bitchy little girl in the country…when talking to Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times.

Neoyorquino March 26, 2012 at 10:26 am

Santorum loses his shit. There's something very meta about that.

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 10:28 am

Can you blame him? Even the Lord, in the book of John, said, "Get the fuck out of My face, you Me-damned Pharisees!"

RadioStalingrad March 26, 2012 at 10:28 am

He did, however, get the whining part right.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ March 26, 2012 at 10:30 am

When the south gets word of his little potty-mouth, they will now feel a pang of buyer's remorse. This campaign just got cool.

paulabflat March 26, 2012 at 10:46 am

not at all. bullshit is nothing. in fact, he'll be a hero for standing up to that damned member of the elitist media.

i kid you not. that's spunk, too, and round here there ain't nothin' more manworthy than spunk. "that took some real spunk!"

frothed up spunk. heh!!

prommie March 26, 2012 at 10:31 am

I think the daughter is blinking in morse code. "Save me, please, for the love of God, someone save me."

Agreed on COTD. Sweet.

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 10:35 am

What a stupid thing to lose your shit over. He turned a defensible attack on Romney into an opportunity to look like a grade school teacher having a nervous breakdown.

Pithaughn March 26, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Thank you , grade school teacher is precisely accurate. Immediately thought of the stuttering teacher in " the Sixth sense" .

These "gotcha" questions have got to stop.
Little Ricky is going to blow a gasket!

(Is that reporter chewing gum? Dude!)

prommie March 26, 2012 at 11:07 am

He's gonna blow something. I was thinking more on the lines of a goat, than a gasket.

__kth__ March 26, 2012 at 10:41 am

Nothing has shaken my faith in the Romney campaign more than their inability to reduce Santorum to a whimpering, Muskie-esque puddle of tears. Because how hard could it be.

Mumbletypeg March 26, 2012 at 10:52 am

Muskie libel! Edmund wept at the toll the media scrutiny was taking on his wife's health. Ricky* is just chagrined that the media scrutiny of his poorly framed speechifying is taking a toll on his credibility as a viable nominee.
—–
*Maybe it's just me, but what I see coming across in Santorum's display of defensiveness — even though he's practicing Catholic & all — reminds me of nothing so much as the type of lay minister who's emerged from being 'prayed over' with the cautionary "There are vipers who'll throw themselves across your path, and wolves in sheeps clothing" evangelical tripe — stepping in his own filth, then painting the reporters pointing at his shoes as the scapegoats.

subsum March 26, 2012 at 10:47 am

Yeah… suck on that chocolate stick… suck on it, stick it deep in yer mouth, yeah. You like it, dontcha? Huh? Say you like it, beotch. Say it!

Politics would be so much simpler if journalists would just quit asking questions.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 10:53 am

A cynic might suggest that Assjuice was just looking for an opportunity to be seen bravely yelling at a member of the Liberal Media.

sullivanst March 26, 2012 at 10:56 am

A true cynic would think "and it'll probably work".

prommie March 26, 2012 at 11:06 am

A strategy now known as "Pulling a Christie."

HistoriCat March 26, 2012 at 12:25 pm

It works so well for Newt. Somewhere Gingrich is working up a self-righteous indignation about Santorum stealing his shtick.

paulabflat March 27, 2012 at 11:22 am

it will play very well, very well indeed, in the southern bastions of asshattery.

already has.

i hear things.

Ricky the carnivorous pony.

If you have ever seen Tom Cruise get really mad, he gets the same look in his eyes. Whats going on is they are trying to telepathically murder someone. Cruise is, well, lets say he suffers from "the mental condition which shall not be named," and as a result, he believes all the shit they told him about the magic powers he has as an Operating Thetan Level VII, and when he gets mad at an interviewer, you can actually see him focusing his stare on the guy and trying to hex him. Clearly, Rick is doing the same thing here. I don't know what magic powers Opus Dei Catholics are supposed to have, but they must be like OT VII Scientologists, and they can hex vexatious reporters.

Burgdorf March 26, 2012 at 11:09 am

One might say Santorum was so angry he was "Frothing at the mouth"…. eww.

VespulaMaculata March 26, 2012 at 11:14 am

My hope rests on the chance that at least one of his kids hasn't drunk the Kool-Aid and there'll be a "Daddy Dearest" expose that'll leave Rick so isolated future conservative candidates won't want him even sweeping up after their appearance stops.

But I'm such a ridiculous optimist.

donner_froh March 26, 2012 at 11:14 am

If the liberal media would stop asking Ricky about what he said and report on what he wished he had said if he wasn't such an idiot, all of this could be avoided.

Nesnora March 26, 2012 at 11:15 am

That picture made me gag on my coffee, HA!

MissNancyPriss March 26, 2012 at 11:36 am

Oh my god he is freaking crazy, he is ready to explode. Jesus better take this lunatic soon.

Toomush_Infer March 26, 2012 at 11:52 am

Well…..at least he didn't call it Santorum….

EloquentScience March 26, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Hint to Frothy: with an internet name like you have, it would best to stay away from food that looks like what it does and people with iPhone cameras.

Beowoof March 26, 2012 at 12:03 pm

He will just go to confession and everything will be okay again.

Exhausted66 March 26, 2012 at 12:08 pm

How about a warning that you're about to see an amputated toe?
West coast oatmeal does not approve.

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 2:05 pm

You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 27, 2012 at 12:04 am

Romney aides got it right…for once. #Tantorum

"What are you guys in the business of doing–reporting the truth?"
Frothy, you are a moran. Truth.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ March 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Now that a WH contender can speak like a comedian, can we please elect Doug Stanhope? How about Eddie Izzard or Ricky Gervais? No, wait… they're British.

*scoff* not like it matters. Fuck a birth certificate! Amirite, Barry?!

Chet Kincaid March 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm

TPM has interesting updates:
http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/03/santoru

Apparently The Ferret's entire campaign is now based on defining who is a "Real Republican" and who is "The Worst Republican":

Santorum brushed the comment aside during a Fox and Friends interview on Monday. “If you haven’t cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you’re not really a real Republican is the way I look at it,” Santorum said, beaming. “We’re out there slugging away … and we’re mixing it up.”

And he's trying to fundraise off the shit, also:

But early Monday morning, the campaign sent an email blast asking for a $30 contribution — roughly the price of a New York Times subscription. “I’m Ready to Take On the New York Times,” a header in the email read:

ElPinche March 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Are there any photographs of Santorum not giving blow jobs to food and foreign objects?

Redhead March 26, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Well, I'm SO glad Santorum is able to respond to criticism (real or imaginary) in a professional, mature and rational manner, without resorting to childish temper tantrums and name calling. This certainly bodes well for his ability to handle criticism and adversity in office.

Joey_Blau March 26, 2012 at 12:37 pm

waaa waaa!! bitchy little baby… It was a setup question and Rick took a deep deep bite all the way to the back of his throat…

and while Rick has said some time that Willard is weak on healthcare. the last speach left out healthcare and just said he was the worst R to run.. period.

anyway.. Sanctorum's time is running out. time for .. Herman cain videos!!

GreatChristiano March 26, 2012 at 12:43 pm

"I mean, what are you guys in the business of doing?" he needs to ask the news team.

HippieEsq March 26, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Does this mean Rick has to go to confession to say "sorry jeebus for saying cow poopie"? What happens when the priest makes a move thinking only an unsuspecting young altar boy would wear a dork-ass sweater vest like that???? Watch out Rick….

anniegetyerfun March 26, 2012 at 12:58 pm

What is it about his face that makes it so punchable? The forehead? It's like someone took Bob Saget's face and injected it with a giant syringe of Prissy Bitch.

EmileZoloft March 26, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I see that, but here I really see Steve Carell's whine.

starfanglednut March 26, 2012 at 5:29 pm

His face gets more and more punchable as the campaign goes on. He is swollen with self righteous grandiosity.

a_pink_poodle March 26, 2012 at 1:11 pm

When Santorum said that Mitt Romney was the worst Republican in the country, he actually meant Mitt Romney was the worst Republican in the country!

See there goes the liberal media again distorting his words into exactly what he said a few minutes ago!

owhatever March 26, 2012 at 1:20 pm

"Are you here to report the truth, or to spin things?"
"Actually, I'm here because my editor was so pissed off with me that ordered me, let me check my notes to get it right, yeah here it is, quote … to go cover that asswipe Santorum."

GOPCrusher March 26, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I'm not sure I want to live in a world where you can be asked about something you said.

wood50 March 26, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Remember (way back in 2008) when we all thought McCain/Palin were the crazies in the GOP?

Abernathy March 26, 2012 at 1:56 pm

He really loves putting stuff in his mouth. Might I suggest a gag next?

Doktor StrangeZoom March 26, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Perhaps the Liberal Elites could find something to Cram Down His Throat

ttommyunger March 26, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I don't know why Ricky's tongue hates him so much, but it really must have been bad…We will see this bit of un-Presidential video again…..and again…..I'll wager.

sezme March 26, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Actually, it's a trick question. In fact, they are all the worst Republicans to run against Obama. Each one worse than the other.

Romney is the worst because he represents the Republican wing with an unalloyed greed for both money and power at any cost.

Gingrich is the worst because he represents the Republican wing with absolutely no morals whatsoever.

Paul is the worst because he represents the Randian, libertarian, racist, misguided youth wing of the Republican party. And he has two first names.

Santorum is the worst because he represents the Republicans who just cold hate everyone who isn't like them a pasty sweater-vest-wearing creep.

walterhwhite March 26, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Well, that's it. I'm never having one of those frosty freeze cones again.

SiameseCatLady March 26, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Ricky has so many sterling qualities, but I think the whiny baby routine is his best. Seriously, he reminds me of a 4 year old (apologies to all 4 year olds). His family probably thinks its perfectly normal for a grown man to act like that. Imagine him having one of his whiny fits in the Oval Office…

docterry6973 March 26, 2012 at 3:15 pm

But I don't WANT them to use birth control! (stamps foot and sobs). Mr. DeMint, make them stop!

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 3:00 pm

I did enjoy the way the reporter refused to engage the hostility, and just let Taliban Rick reveal his inner ugliness (which was frankly no big secret to those who have a discerning eye). I do so hate that man.

paulabflat March 27, 2012 at 11:28 am

santorum's becoming something like an angry chatty cathy.

just pull the string.

jump aside.

rickmaci March 26, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Tricky Ricky with his tighty whities in a wad, again. Of course, later today his spin managers will be quietly walking back the comments about Romoney and the NYT.

Tommy1733 March 26, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Actually I have a lot of sympathy for Santorum. His brain is continually trying to reconcile his "beliefs" and reality – the cognitive dissonance must be very distracting.

glamourdammerung March 26, 2012 at 4:38 pm

How to do well in the Republican primary:

1. Say something extremely stupid (preferably racist as well).
2. Bitch and cry about the "liberal media distorting your words" by exactly quoting the full statement in context
3. ????
4. Grift profit!

Soylent Green March 26, 2012 at 4:47 pm

They really live by that car insurance rule to not admit fault. All these larfs would've dissapated if they said things like, " I misspoke saying Obama was better than Romney", "I meant avoid to look threatening when I said Hoodies are to blame", "Sorry, I said to speak English when you so clearly do already, my bad."
Yet another example of avoiding an apology or admitting to flub. I couldn't state this and be funny at the same time, so fuck it.

dezeinstein March 26, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Wow. Does he kiss his Jesus with that mouth?

Trinket March 26, 2012 at 6:41 pm

How utterly charming.

labman57 March 26, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Santorum suffers from the same weakness as do Palin, Gingrich, Bachmann, Cain, and other tea party brown-nosing political lightweights:

He regards any reporter or interviewer who has the temerity to hold him accountable for his previously stated positions to be a bullying, biased member of a left-wing conspiracy, and he views any question for which is unwilling or unable to provide an honest, substantive question to be a "gotcha" question.

In short, these political lightweights feel that members of the news media should act as though they are working for their public relations departments, only asking them the questions that they want to be asked.

Santorum has defended his outburst with a snarky little response to the effect that every self-respecting Republican politician has cussed out a reporter now and then.

So according to Righteous Rick, it is a Republican rite of passage to treat journalists (or non-fawning constituents) with contempt.
