CPAC Is Wack: 9 Things That Made Us Go “Huh”?

Sarah Palin Big Gulp

This weekend was the Conservative Political Action Conference, an uber-conservative political event where all kinds of crazy shit goes down each year. It was sad because some of these people are absolutely batcrackers crazers. Like, my dad is a Fox News-loving, Bush-voting Republican and he is embarrassed by these people. But at the same time it was delightful because all weekend my Twitter was blowing up with “Oh my God, Sarah Palin said what?!” incredulity. And I do love a good Twitter kerfluffle.

So here are some highlights — and feel free to add others in the comments. Keep reading »

Political theater like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions are a big swamp of blerrgghhh to me. My opinion is that it’s all just a dog-and-pony show and not really the best way to get to know a candidate, their viewpoints, or their cronies at all.

But yes, it’s still a big to-do. What happens is important in the sense that it gets a lot of press coverage. So in the interest of being a well-informed member of the populace, here are 5 things to know about what happened at last night’s Republican National Convention: Keep reading »

“True Blood’”s Muse: Rick Santorum

“True Blood””s just-begun Season 5 has its roots in the Republican primaries. No, there weren’t any known vampires running for office—but the policies of Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum were scary enough, says show creator Alan Ball. While watching the primaries, Ball found himself “asking what would it be like to have a theocracy in America—which is way more terrifying than any fictional monster could ever be,” he tells the Wrap.

The most “terrifying” thing about Santorum: “How many people agree with him,” Ball notes. “Our jumping off point was ‘OK, what is a vampire theocracy?’” Read more …

Rick Santorum aborts his campaign
Watch Video

Not that I wanted Sen. Rick Santorum to continue his presidential campaign of caveman asshattery. But it doesn’t seem fair that he should get to just, you know, choose that choice for himself while women around the country are forced to wait up to 72 hours to make a decision about their own freakin’ uterus. Ashley Judd, Michelle Trachtenberg, and a couple other ladies have the best idea on how to fix this injustice: Rick Santorum should have a 72-day waiting period — and a healthy dose of “non-judgmental” lecturing — before he can abort his campaign. Rick, are you sure this is the right decision? Are you suuuure?  [Funny Or Die]

Rick Santorum suspended his GOP presidential campaign yesterday, but we all know more anti-gay, anti-woman asshattery is probably still forthcoming. Who would be surprised if he ends up with his very own gig on Fox News a la Sarah Palin? Not us! Obviously we’re going to need a good amount of booze to deal with such a turn of events and that’s why we’re thrilled a NYC bar has debuted a frothy brown beverage that it’s calling the Santorum. As the sicker-minded amongst us are aware, “Santorum” is sex columnist Dan Savage’s name for “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”

The $8 Santorum cocktail at the Brooklyn bar Pacific Standard, however, is a feast for more delicate palettes: Baileys Irish Cream, orange-flavored vodka, Angostura bitters, and Godiva dark chocolate flakes. Sounds mmm-mmm-good. Perhaps we’ll knock back a few on Election Night? [Slate]
