“The place is so crowded, no one goes there any more.” Yogi Berra
And so the 2012 Republican paradox some call a presidential primary race begins in earnest… facetiously.
From Newt blaming his infidelity on overzealous patriotism — piggy-backed by Santorum’s marijuana-use admission to defend Gingrich — to Huckabee’s stumbling, bumbling defense of his Obama-birther remarks, to Palin’s tweeting battles with Kathy Griffin, the GOP Bad Boys and Girls of Comedy Tour is heading to a caucus near you.
With the 2012 presidential race still far in the distance, hypocrisy, ambiguity and double standards are rolling toward Iowa and New Hampshire, the epicenters of some of the wildest fluctuations on the political coherence meter. Yes, gentle lady and gentleman voters, it’s once again time to run against who you used to be.
“I sustain and support (Rove vs Wade), and the right of a woman to make that choice, and my personal beliefs, like the personal beliefs of other people, should not be brought into a political campaign. I respect and will fully protect a woman’s right to choose.” Mitt Romney, 1994, running for senate in liberal Massachusetts
“I respect and will fully protect a woman’s right to choose.” Mitt Romney, 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial acceptance speech
“On abortion, I was wrong.” Mitt Romney, 2007 GOP Presidential debate

“F—ing retarded.” Presidential Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel scolding a liberal group at a private meeting at the White House.
“Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.” Sarah Palin wrote while calling for Emanuel’s firing on her Facebook page
“Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards…There’s going to be a retard summit at the White House.” Rush Limbaugh on his radio show referring to Emanuel’s comments and his White House meeting with disability advocates.
“They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh was using satire … I didn’t hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with ‘f-ing retards,’ and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.” Sarah Palin, defending Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday.
Strap on your seatbelts, folks! You’re about to board the Sarah Palin Hypocrite Coaster. You must be Read more
After turning down a lucrative offer from The Onion, in a rambling Tweet, lame duck Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin has announced her rationale for stepping down from office.

It’s Turkey Time Year Round
by Steve Young
Turkey - 1. large birds in the genus Meleagris native to North America. 2. a useless thing, unwise purchase, a box office bomb in entertainment, or a foolish person and their despicable behavior.
Here are just some of 2008’s best turkeys.
Donovan McNabb - The Bird’s quarterback who spent so much time throwing the ball into the ground or the stomach of the opposing team, he never had a chance to read the NFL’s rule book.
Andy Reid - For his inability to place his players in a better position to win during a game or actually answer any question after the game about
why he hadn’t.
13-13 Tie In Cincinnati - See above.
Wall Street - Turned its financial gambling parlor into a stacked game of Russian roulette with every chamber full.
Milton Street - Just “Milton Street.”
Federal Government - As part of the president’s economic stimulus package, they spent $42 million to send out letters telling us that in May we’d get another letter with a $600 check in Read more
In what could completely change the political web industry forever, both partisan and non-partisan political sites are now choosing to post bogus headlines, stories and pictures of scantily-clad, Victoria Secret models in suggestive poses and advancing the possibility that they might become potential political candidates with no substantiation and no other reason than to drive revenue traffic.
“With the presidential election over it’s nearly impossible to get anyone to travel to these sites let alone click onto the advertising links that deliver the two or three dollars of revenue a day these bloggers live on,” said political watchdog Averill Harriman. “Writing bogus stories of these models have some sort of political future,
“The worst part of this type of political deception is that many of these sites will first post their columns on other sites or in print, said Harriman, “then leadthe readers to believe that they might find many more suggestive pictures of other hot models if they click on to Read more
