Fox News Unveils Debate Top Ten

Sitting at the kids table: Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, Carly Fiorina, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore.

  • William

    They need to embiggen the kids table.

    • pj

      that will be fun to watch….”pass the desperation please”

    • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

      With Huckabee, Christie and Trump’s big hair, they need to embiggen the big table.

      • JW Swift

        Trump’s ego needs its own table. Hell, it’s own Zip Code!

        • Beagle

          …keep going…l

  • Craig S

    I’m having a dinner party with friends on Thursday night for the debate. Drinking game: every time they say Obamacare, do a shot. It is going to be a very messy night.

    • MacCrocodile

      If you want someone to die of alcohol poisoning (on a Thursday, no less!) add in “First amendment” or “religious freedom”.

      • Ed Burrow

        Hell… Religious freedom by itself would do.

        • Homo Erectus

          Come on, guys – I gotta work on Friday fer chrissakes.

      • justmeeeee

        the American people

        • MacCrocodile

          “Unelected judges”

          This replaces previous elections’ “Activist judges”.

          • clay

            guaranteed with Cruz in the debate.

      • DumbHairyApe

        Trustworthy.

    • Alphabet Hotel

      We were gonna use the word “illegal”.

    • Gustav2

      Defund Planned Parenthood = shot

      Every time Kasich interupts the questioner before the question is finished = shot

      Kasich mentioning his stellar governorship, our low unemployment (even tho it is higher than the average of all the states) = shot

      Kasich mentioning Ohio’s rainy day fund was down to 87 cents (lie) and he balanced our budget = shot (even tho he sold state assets to do it)

      Kasich saying he balanced the Federal budget (almost all by himself) during the Clinton administrtion = double shot

      • tcinsf

        So … not a Kasich fan?

        • Gustav2

          Used to be my congressman, now my governor. He sounds reasonable on the campaign trail, but is a Teavangelical.

          • tcinsf

            We don’t really have a contribution this cycle … Carly Fiorina has left us and we’re glad to see the back of her.

    • Homo Erectus

      Some version of “Unconstitutional” = shot

    • tcinsf

      BENGHAZI!

    • Cuberly

      My guess is the “taking back” of numerous “things” will be a running topic.

    • Sk3ptic

      Religious freedom, judicial activism, and lawless are my vote to get the the quickest full-on blackout.

    • BobSF_94117

      Spare yourself. Just turn off the sound and drink with abandon.

    • clay

      “foreign”

  • All of them are political midgets compared to the lion of the Republican Party, and its shining star, Donald Trump. Donald has the tact, wit, magnetism, temperament, looks, moral leadership qualities, and ability to connect with minority voters to propel him to the Republican nomination. Ill be hoping for this and will be eating my popcorn in anticipation of a fun -filled debate that hopefully will deteriorate into a shouting match. The only problem is the two bitchiest Republican candidates, Carly and Lindsey, and demoted to the kiddies table earlier that night. I was kinda hoping they would provoke The Donald if they were there.

  • MacCrocodile

    This is a very disappointing list, but I guess there’s no list I’d rather see from the GOP. I expect very little from them, and yet they still disappoint me every time.

  • TampaZeke

    Oh yes! There’s more than enough clownage there to make this conservative crazyfest and must see!

  • bambinoitaliano

    Jon Stewart could just finish off on Friday you know. I’m just saying. I can’t wait for the return of Real Time with Bill Maher this Friday.

  • Lakeview Bob

    I just cannot believe that Fuckabee and Cruz could be in the top 10. Not to mention mental midget Carson. The idea that any of these fools could possibly be nominated makes me sick to my stomach.

    • Joe in PA

      ratings my man, ratings.

      • Sk3ptic

        Yeah– CLEARLY not based totally on polls, as they’d promised.

        • teeveedub

          One of the polls that Fox News based their average on is the Fox News poll. So, you know, completely unbiased.

        • Rambie

          This list matches perfectly with 538’s analysis of the polls they posted today.

    • bambinoitaliano

      We know Ben Carson is to token black as Rand Paul is the token libertarian. I almost protest the absent of Lady Graham but since he never step out of the closet I don’t feel he warrant the Gawker outing at this point.

    • tristram

      Like these 10 or not, it’s clearly the GOP’s top tier. The 7 plausible P or VP candidates are all there (*with an asterisk for Fiorina, who might possibly get tapped for VP), and Huckabee, Cruz and Carson have substantial constituencies within the party that ‘deserve’ to be represented (plus they’re good at ‘firing up the base’ and making the others, except the Donald, appear somewhat reasonable by comparison). Rachel’s incessant kvetching notwithstanding, none* of the kiddie table candidates was ever going to be on the ticket, and none of them has a substantive policy position that is not represented by one of the 10.

      • Sporkfighter

        “Like these 10 or not, it’s clearly the GOP’s top tier.”

        Wow.

      • clay

        Four years ago this week, Fox News sponsored a GOP candidates debate with eight participants, excluding a couple who weren’t polling above 1% and I don’t remember anyone thinking that was unreasonable. This week their sponsoring a GOP candidates debate with ten participants, excluding only those polling within the margin of error of 0%. That doesn’t seem so unreasonable.

        • Captain Jack

          I wonder who owns fox? Anyone we know?

      • Ontogenesis

        Rachel’s bitching because it’s a disgusting subversion of our political process to let a TV CHANNEL decide who gets to be in the presidential debate! Even the pollsters don’t want their polls used that way.

        • tristram

          There’s nothing about parties or debates in the Constitution. Since the time of Lincoln our political process has been a changing dance among individual candidates, factions and the media of the day. For most of that time, newspapers were partisan, actively promoted certain candidates and controlled much of the process. Within my lifetime, it was accepted wisdom that the major party candidates would be chosen in ‘smoke-filled back rooms.’ Now in a world of unbridled megadonor spending and ultra-partisan tv networks, the dance is changing again. And Rachel’s sputtering, which was clever for a short while, has become tiresome and a waste of time for her and her viewers. There are too many real issues with real consequences to which she could apply her time and intelligence.

          • Jafafa Hots

            If I were a multi-billionaire I would stage a contest where the candidate with the best record of free-throws out of 100 would get 2 billion for their campaign.

            Then invite the media to cover it, and watch as “democracy” was decided over the course of the several hours it would take all of these bozos to each take 100 shots.

            It might not change a things, but it would prove a point and the whole world would be laughing.

            You KNOW none of them would risk not showing up to try… well, maybe one last-place loser would try to make the points of being above it all.

            Hm… Or… maybe I would put a needle in a haystack and have them all dive in in a frenzy before the cameras trying to find it.

            Or maybe a paintball contest?
            Each of them taking turns dressed as a clown in a dunking tank?

          • Ginger Snap

            Maybe a game of dogeball?

          • Jafafa Hots

            It would have to be something that would last quite a while and make them look absolutely ridiculous.

          • JulieBL

            ^^^^ This. I’m not betting on Christie

          • Skokieguy

            The world is already laughing

    • Webslinger

      this nails it for me…

    • MarkOH

      Same with Kasich but I think he snuck in because it’s his state and he announced so late. People haven’t had time to get the word out on him.

      • unsavedheathen

        Rachel Maddow tonight…. Fox News changed the criteria for deciding the debate so that Kasich won the tenth spot and Perry was out. They had previously said that the ten debaters would be decided by the five national polls conducted closest to today’s date. The average of those polls placed Perry on the stage and Kasich at the children’s table. That’s not what Fox(Murdoch) wanted, so they disqualified the NBC/WSJ poll and VIOLA! the future vice-persidential nominee is in!

        • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

          When facts go against the Fox agenda, they just ignore the facts. Those inside their disinformation bubble won’t see the difference. Simple!

        • Ontogenesis

          They’re so full of shit.

        • popebuck1

          I was amazed that Rachel even acted surprised. Who could have predicted that Fox News would blatantly rig the results to get the candidates they wanted? I mean, usually Fox News is ALL about integrity.

        • tristram

          ‘The average of those polls placed Perry on the stage and Kasich at the children’s table.’ Not so – Rachel herself showed the numbers. Skipping the NBC/WSJ increased Kasich’s lead over Perry from .8 to 1.4 (or something like that). Either way, Kasich won – they just made it look better. But you’re right about the VP part – Kasich has a pretty good shot at it.

      • DutchBoy74

        According to his wiki, he’s already had a shoe in with Fox.

        He contributed to Fox for 6 years with his own show from 2001-2007.Then he contributed to the crash of 2008 driving Lehman Bros into bankruptcy as a managing Director. He practically embodies everything that went fucked up with this country after 9/11.

        Top notch presidential material I tell you.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Kasich

    • Mike__in_Houston

      Great minds think alike. You named my top three Most Hated. The thought that those three could be president of ANYTHING…

    • Todd Allis

      I looked at several on the list and thought, how could these be in the top 10? Then I checked the ones left out, and yeah, those are indeed the cream of the crap.

      • NMNative

        Cream of the crap. Ha! You’re on top of the game today Todd.

    • teedofftaxpayer

      You have to remember that Huckleberry was a FOX contributor. He’s their darling. Any bets on who FOX will favor in this debate? I don’t think it’ll be Trump.

      • clay

        He was let go from Fox News because his variety show was shit.

        • Octavio

          Yeah. The Lennon Sisters have all filed sexual harassment suits against him. πŸ™‚

          • Homo Erectus

            As have the Decastro sisters.

          • Octavio

            But Peggy, Cherie and Babette are dead. I’ve seen their ghosts haunting the dead zone of Las Vegas Blvd between Fremont St. and the major Strip casino/hotels. Spoooooooooky!

          • Homo Erectus

            Are you saying it would be beneath the Donald to molest cadavers?

    • LovesIrony

      A circus needs its clowns

      • Michael Rush

        there ought to be clowns .

        • Sk3ptic

          …don’t bother
          they’re here.

          • DumbHairyApe

            Isn’t it rich?

        • Craig Howell

          “Isn’t it queer?” Well, actually, not so much.

          • People4Humanity

            Include Miss Lindsaybelle.

        • Whicker Park

          Will there be balloons onstage?

    • Lindoro Almaviva

      it shouldn’t. Look at what the Party has devolved to and who has become their base: uneducated fools that would rather walk around with tinfoil on their heads than actually use reason.

      When seen from that light I am surprised that Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal are not doing better.

    • teeveedub

      I think what’s the most stunning to me is that no one in the GOP seems the least bit embarrassed or concerned or ashamed that the Republican Party has devolved into this collection of crackpots who are driven more by religious or ideological purity than they are in any desire to serve the actual needs of the people.

      It’s frightening.

      • clay

        Their first priority– ideological alignment.
        Their second priority– elect-ability.
        Their third criterion– ability to govern.

        But that puts them only one step behind the Democratic Party who seem mostly focused on elect-ability.

      • tristram

        You might not like their positions, but don’t underestimate them. Three or four are buffoons, But four, probably five, of them, if nominated, will have a better than even chance of being the next president. Winning a 3rd successive term is hugely difficult for any party. Lots of voters are looking for a reason to dump Hillary, and the Dems have no plan B. One slip by Hillary or one crisis on the national or international scene between now and election day that Obama does not handle perfectly, and she and the Dems’ hopes for the WH are toast. Trump is doing Bush, Walker, Rubio, Christie and Kasich a huge favor. One of them will win the nomination by ‘standing up’ to him, thus winning cred as the ‘less extreme’ alternative for voters who want a change.

        • Run Joe Run!

        • Skokieguy

          No plan B? Have you heard the Bernie and Hillary are running tied in the New Hampshire polls?

          • tristram

            As much as I love Bernie, I know he will never be President. The Dems have to thread the eye of a tiny needle.

          • Skokieguy

            Glad you “know”. Just like the people who said Obama couldn’t beat Hillary.

            If you love Bernie, get off your butt and do something.

        • teeveedub

          A lot can change, of course, but currently none of the GOP candidates are polling within striking distance of Ms. Clinton. But she’s been known to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory before.

      • DutchBoy74

        The GOP is nothing more than an extension of the Koch Bros and their ilk.

        They lost their own presidential race back in the 80’s and they figured they could just buy something more powerful than the presidency – the entire Republican party and half the Democrats.

        They aren’t ashamed of them because they are extensions of these rich fucktards own mind.

        What is sad is that there are people in this world who have zero shame in not having a brain of their own and are perfectly happy being the face of some other puppetmaster as long as they get power and money along the way.

    • Rebecca Gardner

      When I here Carson speak I immediately think of Chauncey Gardner from Being There.

      If you’ve not seen this movie then you are younger than me but watch this video below, then watch Ben Carson. I dare you to find a difference.

      https://youtu.be/TYeVQzTVyLk

    • Hal Watts

      I agree that their top 10 is a freakshow. But you must understand, these are the preferred candidates of the Teavangelical party members, many of whom are quite bizarre themselves.

    • Dale

      Of course you can believe they’re in the top ten…

      of FAT christian illiterate PIGS.

  • Joe in PA

    well darn, I was hoping to see Perry NOT remember the federal departments he would eliminate.

    • clay

      As Trump imputed about McCain, the GOP doesn’t give also-rans a second chance; notice where Gingrich, Santorum and Romney are?

  • anne marie in philly

    thank the dogs and cats I never watch tv! to listen to those pukes for even 2 seconds would make me throw a brick at the screen!

    • Its gonna be fun watching them piss off The Donald, and watching them try to shut The Donald up when he talks too much. I want to hear him yell YOU’RE FIRED in that Queens accent of his.

      • pj

        if trump wins will he paint the white house gold?

        • Hue-Man

          Nah, it’s a teardown. To be replaced by a new Trump extravaganza.

          • pj

            lol….bigger im sure……with a nicer pool……and granite counter tops……

        • RoFaWh

          He’ll do much better than that. All the monumental buildings in DC will be enhanced with “TRUMP” in large gold letters with flashing lights: The Capitol, the Supreme Court, all the Smithsonian museums, the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, the Washington Monument, the White House, the National Cathedral, the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Ford’s Theater, the Library of Congress, CIA and NSA headquarters, and anything else he thinks of.

          Trumpity-doo-dah, Trumpity-ay…

  • SpiderPIG

    “kids table”. Adorable.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Adorable??
      The table perhaps – but not these kids.

      • Mike__in_Houston

        No, that description. And perfect it is, too…

        • Dreaming Vertebrate

          Indeed it is. I was trying to make a funny by misapplying the adjective to the component parts instead of the whole. Doesn’t always work!

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    So, … no women?
    And I’m only seeing 18 nuts at the big boys’ table.
    Seems Rubio’s have not descended.

    • bkmn

      He is still stinging from the time he tried to push for serious immigration reform and the gentle, loving Teafolkβ„’ ate him for breakfast.

    • Reality.Bites

      There’s only one woman running and she’s an absurd candidate, even for the Republicans.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        The lovely Miss Lindseybelle has her moments of clarity.
        Be fair now.

        • Octavio

          LOL!

  • shellback

    Out of the entire asylum, they couldn’t find one sane person?

    • olandp

      Who might that be?

      • MDixon34

        Maybe Rob Portman? He’s a little more reasonable than the current field. But the “base” would never consider him.

        • Gustav2

          He is currently losing his Senate seat to Strictland in the polls.

      • BearEyes

        John Huntsman seems “reasonable” compared to the clowncar.

        • teeveedub

          Yeah, and look where it got him.

          • Sporkfighter

            Says it all.

        • Octavio

          At this point in history Huntsman is left of Obama. πŸ™‚

          • BearEyes

            Sad but true. I still see Obama as an Eisenhower republican (which bears absolutely NO resemblance whatsoever to any repub since Nixon).

      • Homo Erectus

        Howdy Doody?

    • Joe in PA

      that reminds me…I need to watch Snake Pit again.

      “She’s very sick you know”.

  • bkmn

    Who will say something that will cause the base to eat them alive? I’m betting Jebya will say/do something that pisses them off.

    • Sam_Handwich

      i’m thinking they will all pile on Jeb…they all want him off the stage

      • bkmn

        You know the Koch funded candidates have him in their crosshairs.

        • RoFaWh

          The presence of Hucikabee on the debate team tells us that Rupert Murdoch himself decided who would be in the debates and who wouldn’t.

          I wonder if Murdoch has deliberately salted the debate with crazies to make his preferred candidate look better???

          • bkmn

            I’d love to see the behind the scenes smackdowns between the Kochs, Murdoch, Sheldon Adelson and the rest of the uncomfortably wealthy backers over their “boys”.

          • Bluto
          • Homo Erectus

            I wonder if Rupert will be here for the next election cycle? or Sheldon for that matter?

      • KCMC

        Hog pile Squeeeele

    • BearEyes

      Jebya just pissed off women this afternoon saying they don’t need any healthcare spending.

    • Cuberly

      Jebya has been the gift that keeps on giving. I swear on a daily basis he derps the shit out of something. Then of course his campaign has to release, yet another, clarification. And he’s the “smart one”?

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    So, … after all the polling we can distill the raw data down to this:
    10 nutjobs at the big table and 7 nutjobs at the kids table.

  • olandp

    Walker #3? The pundits thought for sure that the RNC/FOXEntertainment/News would finagle a way to put Fiorina in there. But Walker #3? Guess you can only go so shallow before you hit bottom.

  • Sam_Handwich

    i wonder who will win the corn dog deep-throating portion of the pageant

    • Sk3ptic

      Any one of ’em I’m sure has practice…

    • KCMC

      again

    • clay

      Since this debate is basically replacing the Ames Straw Poll, I’m not so sure Iowa County Fairs are going to get as much attention this cycle.

  • Reality.Bites

    Does this mean fetus-in-a-mason-jar is shut out of the debate too?

    • Sam_Handwich

      the bush jar sibling?

    • Homo Erectus

      Must. pray. harder.

  • Cuberly

    When I first heard mention of the kiddie table last week I couldn’t stop laughing. Not that the occupants of the main table are any worse off.

  • AtticusP

    Hand-picked.

    And Roger Ailes’ plump little hands picked them.

  • bitwise

    Man, that is just a world of crazy right there. This debate is going to either be a circlejerk or a trainwreck.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      I’m hoping it devolves into a circular firing squad.
      (metaphorical only)

    • Homo Erectus

      Clusterfuck?

      • bkmn

        Clusterwreck

        • fastlanestranger

          Circletrain?

          • Sk3ptic

            Trainjerk circlewreck.

    • Sporkfighter

      65 million years since an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs. Perhaps we’re due for another small one . . .

  • dcurlee

    Let the comedy hour begin

  • Corey

    Santorum did not ooze into the Top 10.

    • Sam_Handwich

      still, it’s nothing to sniff at

      • Joe in PA

        eeewwwwhhh

        that is all.

    • Corey

      Santorum came out at the bottom.

      • Homo Erectus

        as expected.

    • Cuberly

      Oh I bet Jebya and Walker have some left over from their Koch orgy over the weekend.

    • SunsetGay

      Shit sinks.

      Toupees however, remain at the top.

  • Homo Erectus

    Proving once again that money doesn’t buy everything.

  • RoFaWh

    Nos. 3–8 are just bad jokes that shouldn’t be put in charge of cleaning the turds out of the cat’s litter box, much less the USA.

    I don’t care for the rest either but afaict, they aren’t certifiably insane. Except maybe Trumpity-Dumpity-doo-dah.

  • e jerry powell

    For as much as we’ve heard from or about Jindal since the Lafayette shootings, I’m surprised to hear that he’s still in this thing.

    But hey, schadenfreude works for me, and I’m enjoying reading about who Fox News has put at the kiddie’s table.

    • If polling at about 1% still counts as “in it.” 😘

  • ScottJL

    Wow. Here we have it, their best and brightest. Pardon me while I throw up.

  • Cuberly

    Alright, who’s got the bingo card ready?

    • ScottJL

      Bingo I can play, a drinking game with these folk and I’d have liver failure in a minute or two.

      • Cuberly

        Was trying to think of a teabagger talking-point that wouldn’t result in alcohol poisoning but couldn’t think of one. They haven’t been using the “lawless administration” or “illegal executive orders” memes as much but not sure I’d wanna risk it.

  • Homo Erectus

    On what planet would Trump, Huckleberry and Carsick be the creme of the crop?

        • billbear1961

          Well, it’s knocked over on its side, the poor thing.

  • Mike__in_Houston

    Any debate that puts Perry the buffoon, Frothy Mix, Piyush and Lindseybelle on the second tier can’t be all bad. Too bad that Fuckabee, Carson who has never held office, and the guy from Canada can’t join them (well, all the rest as well, but those are my top contenders for Jackass of the Year).

    Two or three strong contenders there and one excellent one.

  • As I posted on another blog, it’s crazy that the “kids table” includes the runner-up from last time (usually the heir presumptive for the GOP), a three-time Governor of the second largest state in the country (and the largest red state), a three-term Governor of a blue state and the third largest state in the country, and a U.S. Senator who’s been in Washington for 20 years and has more foreign policy experience than the rest of the field combined. In exchange, the “adult table” will include two businessmen who’ve never even ran for public office much less ever been elected to anything, three first-term senators, and (least shocking, but still) two former governors who were last up for election 12 years ago and last held public office of any sort 8 years ago.

    • Homo Erectus

      Um..Minor point. New York is the 4th largest state. Florida, the 3rd largest state is providing 5 of the top 10 candidates.

      • According to just about everything I have read, the Republicans cannot win without Florida’s 29 electoral votes. Florida is the biggest swing state, and I think we can assume there is a 50/50 chance that Bush or Rubio will be on the ticket right now.

          In order to guarantee that Jeb! gets the nomination, the FL GOP has determined that this election will be a winner takes all. Everybody else goes home. Walker has already said he won’t waste any time or money on Florida.

          • fake Catherine Burns

            I’m agnostic you moron. So anyone who hates men who rapes young boys is a gay hater, because you are saying homosexuality is inclusive of NAMBLA (Harry Hay founder of the US gay rights movement mr “Nambla walks with me”) and men who have sex with young boys. And only homophobes hate those who have sex with young boys?

          • billbear1961

            Show me, you jackass, where I say that someone who hates men who rape boys is a gay-hater! Show me, idiot.

            Show me where I say homosexuality is inclusive of NAMBLA and pedophiles! Are you having a conversation with voices in your fucking head? Because you sure as hell are NOT paying attention to what *I* am saying! As I suspected, you can’t READ.

            I’ve never heard of Harry Hay. IF he says/said what you claim he said, he can go to HELL (if he’s still alive). Any asshole can claim to speak for an entire community–it doesn’t mean he DOES.

            I said nothing about whether or not YOU are a believer. I said you’ll find no support for pedophiles HERE, but YOUR side makes excuses for them if–like the great “Holy Warrior,” Josh Duggar–they oppose equality for LGBTs.

            “And only homophobes hate those who have sex with young boys?”

            Who said that? I didn’t. Everyone on this site despises adults who have sex with children and wants to see them in PRISON.

            YOUR side, however, makes excuses for them, as I’ve said, and as we’ve seen repeatedly in the news since Duggar’s disgusting crimes have come to light.

            Shame on you and your sick allies!

            IF this man makes excuses for pedophiles, I denounce him for it. So will the VAST majority of the LGBT community. Take your evidence to Fox–they’ll certainly help you disseminate it. Let’s see how it stands up outside your bubble.

            There are lots of men–some of them important men–in your community who molest little girls and underage teenage girls, and there are those who make excuses for them, look the other way and enable the terrible crimes they commit.

            Therefore, following your reasoning, your entire community stands condemned.

            How sad for you!

            It must be very frustrating for you, you abusive piece of SHIT, that people have come to understand the difference between pedophiles and gay men, just as they understand the difference between pedophiles and straight men.

            Now, go argue with the voices in your head, because this is my LAST post to you.

            Reply to me if you like, but I won’t be reading what you say.

            Josh Duggar was always slandering the LGBT community with accusations we were a danger to kids. HE turned out to be a danger to kids, didn’t he? His own sisters!

            Crisis Mag: Notice the links back to our mutual research into the Russian democracy trying to stop foreign gay pedophiles aka “gay dads” raping their children.

            Here is why Russia made those “anti-gay” pedophile anti-propaganda laws..

            Australian Gay Marriage Activists raped a Russian baby – the back story is here. (search garry burns decimated on VGB blog.. too tired to dig up the link or see other links below)
            Fag member for Sydney Alex Greenwich MP called Russia “Homophobic” in his letter to Bob Pedo Carr for cutting off supply of white skinned boys for $5000 after one US and one Australian gay marriage activist “gaydads” couple bought one, that were members of Alex’s Australian Marriage Equality and filled the little boys passport up with stamps on a global Gay Marriage Activists baby fuck tour, that was made possible by the Australian government breaking it’s own requirements for DNA tests for surrogate parents, and they were of no biological relation. See the link to hear a JEW ABC journalist praise the baby fuckers and listen to them call Russia, Australia and America “homophobic” for delaying their 20 month anal child rape and since two week old oral child sex toy from leaving Russia… with love. Who can deny love right? Gay marriage is just two men loving each-eachother and fucking young Russia orphans.

            The next photo is from a Singapore Gay Activist’s blog who posted this after the baby rapists were arrested to use this child rape victim as a poster boy for gay rights and decrimilizing sodomy in Singapore. That’s right – gay marraige activists are using gaydads babyrape victims as a poster boy for their movement. FYI The Signapore government just prosecuted this faggot and first man to own a gay orgyroom sauna for scandalizing the courts and defaming the former prime minister.

            Do you honestly believe there are no pedophile rings abusing little girls? Your concern for boys is laudable–you don’t seem to give a DAMN about girls.

            Shall I start posting all the horrific stories of abuse–sexual and otherwise–suffered by children at the hands of their heterosexual parents?

            Obviously, to follow your “reasoning,” it proves that all heterosexuals are degenerate pedophiles.

            Any cop trained in this matter will tell you that children are at the greatest risk of every kind of abuse from straight married men.

            Once again, following your reasoning, to keep children safe, we should obviously keep them away from married heterosexual men.

          • fake Catherine Burns

            i hate all pedophiles. I called the cops on a hetrosexual pedophile Jeff Koid connected to the sydneigh.com.au convention in 2002 before I targeted gays. Why do gay’s like bronies?

          Theater-Style Buttered Popcorn

          Directions:

          Movie theaters use butter-flavored oil, which has a lower water content than butter so it makes popcorn less soggy. Real clarified butter has the same effect. To make it, melt 2 sticks butter in a glass measuring cup in the microwave. Let sit for a few minutes; the butter will separate into 3 layers. Skim off the top layer of foam, then slowly pour the clarified butter into a heatproof container; discard the bottom layer of milk solids. Use 3 tablespoons hot clarified butter for 10 cups [popped] popcorn; refrigerate the rest (it’s great for sautΓ©ing).

          β€”Source

          • Octavio

            O/T: I first learned about clarified butter when I watched Julia Child in 1963 on PBS. She was showing how to crack open and present a freshly boiled lobster. Clarifying a cup of farm fresh butter was part of that show. So, when I first read Alice B. Toklas’ recipe for hishish brownies four years later I didn’t have to look up how to clarify butter.

    The top ten sounds a lot more impressive than it is. Huffingtonpost tells me that Walker comes in 3rd at 10.6, then Huckabee and Carson tie at 6.6 and it’s less and less for everybody else.

    Just something for every liberal, progressive, democrat and gay to keep in mind is that the RNC has been very clear that their plans for this election are to avoid the sideshow and expenses mitt incurred fighting other Republicans to the bitter end and his having to move his positions into the crazy town of teabagistan just to get the nomination.

    With that in mind we need to make sure that after that s debate w e do everything possible to get trump and at least one other Looney Tune in their camp to try running as an independent. This will help split the base and if a huckafuck or steaming santorum is the other but besides tRump they will draw the Evangelicals away form they base too.

    The teatards have proven they are willing to squabble like democrats and cut off their nose to spite their face….let’s encourage them to do so.

    We must hold long memories on every thing they do to motivate all of us to get out the vote fifteen months from now.

    What a laughable joke.

    Points: Who hates gays the most?

    Who hates Mexicans the most?

    Who hates valid science the most?

    Who can’t pinpoint one European country on a map?

    Presidential material!

    I haven’t been this excited about a tv event since Tanya Harding was about to take to the ice.

    Pop the popcorn and prop up the LAZY-Boy. It’s gonna be entertaining…

    No real surprises except for the last three. I was fairly sure Rick Santorum would make it and Chris Christie would be the flop. Well this is why no one pays me for predictions.

    Rachel Maddow skewered FOX tonight for changing their own debate formula. They substituted an older poll for their “Five Most Recent National Polls” (dropping the NBC one, go figure), in order to create a statistically significant cut-off space between #10 Kasich and #11 Perry (that wasn’t there if you stuck to their original formula). Me, have sympathy for Rick Perry? MUST be the apocalypse! >;-X

      Koch money is more important to Repukes than rules. And as for hypocrisy, that’s the air they breathe. Still worth hammering away at it though.
