The fear of non-existent boogeymen will motivate people to vote against their own self-interest, and turn the keys of the palace over to the real evil threat.

Years of reading fundraising appeals from political organizations have persuaded me that:

* Conservative organizations use fear of the future to raise money,
* Progressive organizations use anger at the past to raise money, and
* Liberal organizations use guilt arising from present comfort to raise money.

That is one of the most succinct, and accurate, assessments I have seen.

Yes,

Mr. Frothy only has a chance because the mainstream religious right view Mormonism as a cult. Honestly, I hope he gets the nomination so he can get spanked in the general election.

The religious fundies have manager to co-opt the Republican Party, but I don't think their desire to institute a theocracy will fly with the majority.

The most scariest part is that he is even in the race at all. Letting a nutjob run in the first place is where this country is going. A sigh of relief all around when Cain and Bachman let go of their grab for power, now we just have to wait for Santorum to drop out as well.

Have you googled 'santorum'? - The first popular result says it all....

I'm pretty sure people are laughing at us – hell! I'm laughing at us. When I look at the republican aspirants I can only think, WTF are they thinking?

I saw a really funny skit about that.  Don't remember the name of the show, but it was from the UK.

Soon after we re-elected Bush 43 in 2004, an Englishman asked me what could we have been thinking. I told him we weren't thinking; we were emoting.

I added that unlike the English, we can get rid of rulers without assassination.

take a look at this link (http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/ffrf/forum/topics/new-hampshire-r...)

 

this is the type of person we are fighting with.  this is America.  this is why Santorum has a chance. 

I might just stay in Japan awhile longer. c.c Seriously.....
