I love a joke that’s taken way too far, and that’s why I’m totally over the drag queen moon for the Twitter account @Ron Paul’s Drag Race, a mash up of libertarian Republican candidate Ron Paul and “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” host RuPaul. Sashay, Chante! [Twitter]

Look closely, my children. Closer. Even closer. This portrait of Rick Santorum is no ordinary portrait of Rick Santorum. For it is made of hundreds of pictures of gay porn. That’s right, it’s Rick Santorum fashioned from the fleshy penises and washboard abs of gay porn stars. Oh, how Santorum would shriek in horror if he knew.
Today’s Lady News: Rick Santorum Says Birth Control “Just Costs A Few Dollars,” Is Not Something “You Need Insurance For”
- Oh, Rick Santorum, just shut up already! He told conservatives at the CPAC conference today that insurers shouldn’t cover the cost of birth control because it “costs just a few dollars. Is that what insurance is for?” He continued, adding “Things that are not really things you need insurance for, and still forcing on something that is not a critical economic need, when you have an economic distress, where you would need insurance. But forcing them even more to do it for minor expenses.” Regardless of what your opinions on health care reform are, Rick Santorum is just WRONG. It’s not “just a few dollars.” It’s not a “minor expense.” My birth control pills had a co-pay of $60 — that’s with insurance — so I stopped taking them because they were out of my budget.

Oh, the bounty that is What Old White Men Think You Should Be Allowed To Do With Your Uterus! This weekend, Republican presidential wannabe Ron Paul sat down with Piers Morgan and, in a departure from his usual “no abortion under any circumstances” position, said he would support abortion if the woman had been raped — but only if it was an honest rape.
Piers Morgan asked Ron Paul if his daughters or granddaughters were raped, if he could actually look them in the eye and tell them they had to carry the pregnancy to term. “If it’s an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen,” said Ron Paul, who is also a doctor.
“Honest rape“? Did he actually go there? Oh, yeah, he actually went there. Keep reading »
Look at the graphic above. Believe it or not, one of the ridiculous campaign promises above was actually uttered by a presidential candidate. Yes, Newt Gingrich actually claims that, if elected, he’ll get a moon colony going by the end of his second term. That’s right America: You could be barbecuing on the moon by 2020 if Newt has his way. Newt’s plan would allow for the moon colony to apply for statehood once a population of 13,000 had been achieved. So yes, he’s thought of everything.
“I will, as president, encourage the introduction of the ‘Northwest Ordinance’ for space to put a marker down that we want Americans to think boldly about the future, and we want Americans to go out and study hard and work hard and together we’re going to unleash the American people to build the country we love,” Gingrich said in Florida this week, rather not coincidentally in an area hard hit by the cancellation of the space program.
Candidates will say anything to get elected, am I right? So we dreamed up a few other wild zingers we thought the President and Newt’s fellow Republican candidates might say. Enjoy!
