Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Iowa Caucasians Caucus Edition

What a fun week it’s been, gentle people – drums of Freeper toxic waste (triple redundancy score!) have been piling up faster than I can catalogue them, much less open and decontaminate them.

Needless to say, the whole of Freeperville is awash in Santorum, so this one’s going to be more icky than normal.

Suits ON! Blowers ON! Airlock door OPEN! Let’s GO!

First one up –Romney takes Iowa – Jim Rob takes nitroglycerin!

Iowa GOP: Romney wins caucuses [Romney 30,015, Santorum 30,007]
CNN ^ | 1/4/12

Posted on Wednesday, January 04, 2012 2:09:20 AM bySlings and Arrows

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney beat former Sen. Rick Santorum by a margin of just 8 votes in the Iowa GOP caucuses, the chairman of the Iowa Republican Party announced early Wednesday.

********************************

Gee, what a surprise.

“Tokyo Rove”?
Funny. I remember not so long ago, when you buttmunches were kissng his ass like it was the first time you’d ever gotten to first base.
Allow me to remind you, by posting a pic I took fromthe very forum you’re currently posting in, during the second term of the Dubya Administration, when you imbeciles thought “Tokyo Rove” was all that and a bag of chips :

Ring any bells?

To: Slings and Arrows

I find it very odd thatTokyo Rove was the FIRST person to know Willard “won” Iowa.

I guess not.

I would think the people counting the votes and the media would know first. And there were also reports of random precincts not counting right, but they refuse to do a recount.

No question about it: Romney and the establishment STOLE the Iowa caucuses!

This whole Iowa Caucus stinks to high heaven! The Fox people said that the votes were lost so Romney and Rick agreed to pre-agranged vote totals?? This whole thing is Fishy…The 2012 race is looking like a Dog and Pony show to hand Romney the Nomination and get in his Admin’s good graces…I’m calling shenanigans!!!!

You’re wrong! If we don’t like the outcome, it must be corrupt. Can’t be that the Romney vote tally is close to the 2008 numbers, that he ran a smart campaign (something we shouldn’t pay attention to), and that a caucus process is fairly decentralized and difficult to fix. It’s corrupt! Corrupt!

Freepers can like Mitt or not (I’ve been trying to stomach him till the McCain endorsement raised my level of bile again) – but I do wish people would be a bit more sane.

The Tea Party Train Wreck That Never Happened
Washington Examiner ^ | December 20, 2011 | Noemie Emery

Posted on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 9:06:45 AM bylbryce

Three weeks ago, E.J. Dionne (or “Baghdad Bob,” as James Taranto has called him) saw nothing but doom in the GOP’s future, as “the Republican establishment … is essentially powerless,” having surrendered its soul to the evil Tea Party, which has driven the country to hell.

Events since have proved this judgment mistaken: The establishment lives, and is doing its duty; part of the Tea Party has been merging with it; and the “system” is working as planned.

What are the signs that the system is working? When the prospect of former House speaker Newt Gingrich as the presidential nominee of the Republican Party first appeared to be rising, first responders from all parts of the party rushed to their stations en masse.

Former House colleagues called him unstable. The National Review termed him “erratic.” Ann Coulter called him all hat and no cattle. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., weighed in with a similar judgment.

Tea Party stars rushed to shore up Mitt Romney, the most probable Gingrich alternative. Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., had already endorsed him. Gov. Nikki Haley, R-S.C., now endorsed him. Christine O’Donnell, who unseated Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware’s GOP Senate primary, endorsed the ex-moderate.

This was bad news for Dionne and his friends, who have waiting been three years for a Tea Party blowup (which they ought to know now is not likely to happen), and for the suicide wing of the conservative movement, which blames all its woes on establishment cunning, and calls the Coulters and Coburns RINOs and worse.

For the rest of the world, it was an unrelieved blessing. In a matter of days the Newt boom subsided, and the former speaker fell gently to Earth.

*****************************

It is a testament to the profoundly patriotic conviction, sense of moral righteousness of those who perservered against all odds in making the Tea Party, the adoption of its principles, the success it has been, certainly will continue to be. There were untold number of reasons the Tea Party might have faded away. It succeeded as well as it has as a result of the truest form of patriotism, love of country by the intrepid citizenry who made in happen, as guided by the US Constitution as divinely inspired document having preserved this great nation of ours through centuries of turbulence, adversity, when having destroyed lesser nations in the process.God Bless The Tea Party! God Bless America!

Jim Robinson: Taking stock of our dwindling conservative inventory
Jan 5, 2011 | Jim Robinson

Posted on Thursday, January 05, 2012 1:23:02 PM byJim Robinson

Tea party favorite and pro-life conservative Sarah Palin and her family were viciously attacked to the point she chosenot to run to cash in.

FIFY

Congressional Tea Party Caucus leader and constitutional pro-life conservative Michele Bachmann had early promise, but I guess came across as too “shrill”

YaThink

and consequentlyher numbers driven down the money dried up to the point she exited.

FIFY.

Successful pro-life conservative Texas Governor Perry hit the race at the top but due to missteps and less than stellar debate performances

soon fizzled and is now all but gone.

When fuckingMichelle Bachmann laughs at you on stage, you’re clown shoes in size 13 EEE.

Pro-life conservative businessman Cain and his famous 9-9-9 plan had promise, but was driven out due toindefensible allegations acting like the sleazy boss in a bad office drama.

FIFY.

Pro-life Reagan Revolution conservative Newt Gingrich reinvigorated his campaign and soared to the top of the national polls, but was unacceptable to the establishment and apparently also unacceptable to the “true conservatives” among us and his numbers are now plummeting

You’re running out of chumps, aren’t you?

You’d think “unquestionably” pro-life, pro-family conservative Rick Santorum whose recent surge took him to a tie in Iowa and who’s now surging in the national polls might be good enough to stand against Romney for the base, but looks like there are “true conservatives” now attacking HIM as not good enough.

Well, drive them all out and who’s left?

Huntsman? Who? Moonbat Paul?

JIM ROBINSON! Your new GOP candidate for President!!

Ideas anyone? Should we all continue attacking the conservatives we don’t like until we drive them all out?

What makes you think you nutcases can stop now? Once you start drawing ideological lines in the sand, sooner or later, it’s just you and the mirror.

Personally, I could easily have lived with Palin, Bachmann,

In your wet dreams.

Cain, Perry, Newt or Santorum and would be proud to enthusiastically support any of them, warts and all. Any one of them is infinitely better than Obama or Romney.

But if we don’t land on one soon and raise him up over Romney, guess who we’re going to be stuck with?And it ain’t going to be pretty.

It is, however, gonna be pretty funny.

And if abortionist/statist/progressive Romney (or moonbat Paul) is the one, might as well get used to four more years of Obama. I won’t vote for or support either one of those two.

I’d suggest that we all stop trying to tear down the other conservative candidates in the race

Like Jim Rob just did in the preceeding paragraphs…

and instead concentrate on trying to build up our own personal favorites. Who knows? May even discover an acceptable conservative (if not a great conservative) in the bunch.

David-duke-for-president

We’ve never had a perfect conservative yet. Not even the magnificent Ronald Reagan.

If Reagan were running today on what he actually did as President, he’d be polling behind Huntsman.

Just sayin’.

We and they all have warts.

Let’s leave your anus out of this, shall we? I just ate breakfast.

But we do want to have a candidate with at least an actual CONSERVATIVE record and not an out and out liberal progressive RINO. So let’s compare their records and their actual conservative accomplishments but not try to destroy them personally.

God bless andmay the best CONSERVATIVE be our nominee.

Shocker: Mitt Romney Winning Tea Party Vote in New Hampshire
Sunshine State News ^ | December 19th | Kenric Ward

Posted on Friday, December 23, 2011 7:20:13 AM byHalfmanhalfamazing

Mitt Romney broke through the tea party barrier Monday, winning that segment’s vote in a New Hampshire poll.

Romney beat Ron Paul among tea partiers, 29 percent to 21 percent, the Public Policy Polling survey reported. It was the first time Romney has carried a plurality of tea party voters, with whom the former Massachusetts governor has had chilly relations.

And in a possible leading indicator heading to Florida, Romney garnered 50 percent of the senior vote in the New Hampshire poll conducted by the Democratic-leaning PPP.

Overall, Romney was the choice of 35 percent of PPP respondents. Paul garnered 19 percent; Newt Gingrich, 13 percent; Jon Huntsman, 5 percent; Michele Bachmann, 3 percent; Rick Santorum, 2 percent; and Rick Perry and Gary Johnson, 1 percent.

More Car Fires Hit LA, Arson Suspected (Muslim youths bring New Years tradition to Hollywood?)Associated Press ^ | 12/31/11 | MICHAEL R. BLOOD

Posted on Saturday, December 31, 2011 7:27:26 AM byjimbo123

Several more cars burned in suspected arson attacks in the Los Angeles area early Saturday morning, and authorities investigated if they were connected to nearly two dozen deliberately set blazes a day earlier, police said.

Seven or eight cars burned Saturday in the North Hollywood area, said officer Robert Collier.

He said he didn’t have further details of the blazes, but said arson is suspected and there could be a link to the earlier blazes.

Funny how there is no mention that setting cars on fired is a muslim New Years tradition.

“Should we give a damn about problems in LA?”

Just about every national trend starts in California and then goes mainstream because it gets written into scripts. Once it’s on TV as main plot, background or filler material, it grants permission for the rest of America to mimic them. If cars are being burned in California look, a year or two later, for cars to be alight in Peoria.

As racist as this sounds now, it will be mainstream thought once we have the problems France has. We must stop letting Muslims into the country. Radical or not, they’re the pine straw (fuel load) on the forest floor. Once the flames are started by the “radicals” then the entire fuel load will burn, taking civilization’s roots with it.

We can only live as civilized as our neighbors will allow. If a Caucasian woman doesn’t dare leave her house without a veil because she might be attacked and raped then she must step back into the ninth century just to buy groceries.

L.A. arson probe: Fire-starting materials found in van, police say (Detained suspect from Germany)LA Times ^ | 1/2/12 | Andrew Blankstein, Richard Winton and Ari Bloomekatz

Posted on Monday, January 02, 2012 10:57:13 AM byjimbo123

Los Angeles Police Department detectives found materials that could have been used to set fires inside the minivan of a “person of interest” detained for questioning in the recent string of L.A. arson fires, law enforcement sources told The Times.

The sources did not reveal details but said detectives confiscated “evidence and materials” that suggest the individual had the ability to ignite some or all of the blazes.

Little is known about the man. Sources said the the minivan had Canadian license plates but that detectives believe the man might originally be from Germany.

  1. Pope Impious XXIII says:

    As the primaries heat up, the sheen on the Freeper Sludge is showing all the colors of the rainbow, like an oil spill on a rainy Spring day.
    It is, in its own way, beautiful.

  2. John Barleycorn says:

    I think I need a cigarette, and I don’t even smoke. Good times!

  3. gene says:

    It’s amazing that your average freeper can muster the required brain power to push the keys on their keyboard in the correct sequence in order to generate these “thoughts”.

  4. MarcD says:

    I know logic and forensic argument are not strong points of Freepers. They probably think that forensic argument is an episodic crime drama on CBS. They must realize, however, that accusing Rove of rigging elections is prime facie eveidence that they believe Republicans are every bit as dirty as the unfounded claims they level at Democrats!
    It was always, “Alinsky had the baby daddies go to ACORN in order to intimidate little old white folks into voting Democrat!” Now they *immediately* go to Republican vote tampering. What was that Freud said about projection?

  5. Jay in Oregon says:

    Now they *immediately* go to Republican vote tampering.
    To be fair, they immediately go to “establishment” Republican vote-tampering. Because everyone knows that Freedumb-luvin’ Tea-Party-patriot-types are above such petty concerns.
    Everyone is out to get the poor, poor Tea Party. When feeling victimized is the only tool you have, everyone looks like an oppressor.

  6. MapleStreet says:

    I admit that I don’t “get it”.
    Why should Iowa be guaranteed the first position and how does that make them special. The Caucus is only the folks who show up (can find baby sitters, make enough money that they don’t have to work that night, etc. etc. Count all the skewing factors you can think of.) As there are now around 1/2 dozen major contenders in the race, so much depends on who gets who’s vote as candidates drop out – so 20 votes one way or the other really does’t make a difference.
    Are the candidates practicing their political skills at arguing points that don’t matter while Rome burns down all around them?
    The accusation of miscounted votes doesn’t come from the official in charge of that meeting. The official apparently hasn’t said anytning. So why don’t I jump up and declare that the repub votes for Obama in the Caucus were uncounted and enough to put him over the top? I have as much standing as they do.
    How long till the Freepers claim that the person making the accusation that a dem is the one making the accusation in a false flag attack?
    As pointed out above, if it WAS vote tampering, then it was under a solidly repub structure (Iowa repub party) that was running it. And what does that say about the quality of the recount in Florida a decade ago?
    Bringing me to a personal hot point – if we can’t verify the elections, we don’t have a democracy / republic.

  7. Tommy T says:

    “As the primaries heat up, the sheen”
    I see what you did there.
