No, we’re not. Not a chance, but seriously (h/t LC hilljohnny):
Leading Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has failed to meet the requirements to be in the presidential primary election in Virginia, where he resides, the state’s Republican Party said.
First Huntsman (no, we don’t know who he is either, so don’t ask), Santorum and Bachmann. Then Rick Perry, and now Gingrich.
So it’s down to either Luap Nor or Mittens ObamneyCare in Virginia’s primaries.
Two possibilities here, because we don’t remember a clusterfuck of quite those proportions in any previous GOP primary:
1) Virginia GOP shenanigans (after all, who does this particular two-candidate match up benefit?) or
2) The most singularly inept, fucked up, brain-dead, hit every branch of the Stupid Tree on the way down GOP field in history.
We can’t say we can rule either one out. All we can say is that this country is hosed.
It could be Mittens’s hench-maggots borrowing from B. Hussein 0bama’a dirty tricks book, let’s not forget that he slimed his way into the US Senate by getting his election opponents removed from the ballot until the last minute, and Alan Keyes had no time at all to campaign, thus B. Hussein 0bama was inflicted upon America as a US Senator.… Read more »

As His Rottieness says, even a turd named Romney should get our vote over die grosse Nulle.
I’ve said it MONTHS before – We get either Obama 2.0 or Obama Lite. The Primaries are a joke and have been for a while. The Dems seem to have taken over the GOP some time ago judging by the number of insanely corrupt RINOS running the GOP for the past many years. I said it about the last election… Read more »
It is option number 2…. but it is for reason number 1. The Republicrats have no interest in giving “We the People” anyone close to who we want, so we either get the top or bottom side of a shit sandwich. Ron Paul may be sadly mistaken of foreign policy, but until his numbers started to climb to where they… Read more »
My freezer isn’t full enough yet. Sigh.
Romney Plan to Keep Tax Return Private Breaks With Past Mitt Romney, a multimillionaire who is by far the wealthiest of the Republican presidential candidates, said he has no plans to release his income tax returns if he wins his party’s nomination, setting himself apart from past nominees in both parties who have routinely done so. Romney, whose most recent… Read more »
What Cannon Fodder said…
Resistance is NOT futile.
And my watch shows that Mickey is now scratching his armpit. And that means it is about time for some reflection. Tonight is a reminder that to those (us) who believe in something larger, than ourselves, and more permanent than anything, there remains that Something Else. Even if we lose the remnants of our Constitution and our country, there remains… Read more »
Sure seems to be some multi-generational cousin-marrying going on here. Whatever it means, this does not look good for the Virginia Party of Stoopid. Cue the dueling banjos. I love how the inane stream media is spinning this as Newt missed the bus, and not even mentioning the fact that the majority of GOP contenders are also not on the… Read more »
Looks like Virginia is enforcing the rules differently this year.
LC Sir Rurik, K.o.E.:
Speaking of Canada, one of my old ideas was of hanging out in Yukon. (I believe guns are more normative there than in most of the Great White North.)
Canada was beautiful! Flew over a piece of British Columbia in a DC-3, on a fishing trip, awed by the magnificent landscape below. Salmon may have been invented in Canada for all I know……..
The way I see it this benefits Romney the most because even on his best day Paul would only garner about 20-30% of the vote. So basically it comes down to Romney vs a guy who while he has good ideas on domestic policy is so far out in left field in foreign policy that he would never win unless… Read more »
Um, DJ, why would our government want the oil, since we’re one of the countries that doesn’t have a national oil company? Why would oil industry people want to increase the supply of oil, a freely traded commodity, since that means they make less profit on the oil they actually own? If it was a conspiracy, why did it result… Read more »
Educate this Canadian here. What is the importance of the primaries? How come some states have caucuses, some have primaries and some have neither? I thought that if one party gets a majority in both the house and senate, which I have read the GOP will, then they can override even a presidential veto? Regarding moving to Canada, well the… Read more »

Emperor Misha, thanks for the info on the rather complex system. I understand well about how a third party splits the vote. In the ’90s the Progressive Conservatives were the center right party and the Reform Party was created by true conservatives to challenge them. The result were twelve years of Liberal center left governments due to vote splitting. Eventually… Read more »
