Ron Paul possibly has raised more money than any other GOP candidate.  His supporters are among the most enthusiastic.  And yet, he still cannot win a primary.  Newt Gingrich’s campaign is floundering like a fish out of water, and by the way, for a fifty dollar fee you can get a picture taken with the man.  It remains to be seen as to what side Mitt Romney really is on.

And then there was Rick Santorum!  And Sarah Palin!

By now you have heard of Santorum’s “bullshit” comment and how New York Times journalist Jeff Zeleny asked Santorum if Romney “was the worst Republican in the country to run against Obama.”  By now you’ve heard of little Ricky’s tirade and how Zeleny was “distorting” Ricky’s words.  “That’s bullshit!”  And you can quote him on that.

However, in Racine, Wisconsin Santorum had this to say:  “Why would we put someone up who is uniquely – pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama. Why would Wisconsin want to vote for someone like that?”

Sounds pretty close to me.

There’s a couple of reasons why Santorum would characterize Zeleny’s question as “bullshit”.  1. Bad press is better than no press.  2. Fearing a loss to the GOP frontrunner, after his inflammatory comments, maybe Santorum felt he had to get on Romney’s good side.  You know, the best chance for the V.P. nomination.

Enter Sarah Palin with the obligatory ‘don’t cha know’ persona.

The former half-term governor of Alaska took to Fox News (where else) to voice her opinion.  Which brings me to another point: Do you know why Sarah Palin never goes to any other network other than Fixed News?  She would have to answer some real questions.

“It was good and it was strong and it was about time because he’s saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting conservative’s words (Zeleny’s words were not ‘twisting’.  If Ms. Palin could read Santorum’s words verbatim – oh, that’s right, she doesn’t know what that word means),” Palin said on Fox News late Monday night. “I was like welcome to my world Rick. And good on ya, (‘don’t cha know’ moment) don’t retreat (this is as overplayed as Git-R-Done).”

Meanwhile, Santorum said that a conservative that doesn’t take on a journalist from the New York Times isn’t “worth your salt” – as far as he’s concerned.

No, Ricky, a conservative that wants to tackle the real issues – by this I mean the Party of No for the sake of saying “No” when it comes to party lines – and sticking to real conservatism (unlike George W. Bush) makes you a conservative.

Taking on a liberal journalist from the New York Times doesn’t make you a conservative, it makes you – well, I don’t know what it makes you, but not conservative.

“I was glad that he called out this reporter,” Palin said. “He and the other candidates, all of them, they need to do more of this because believe me the American people are tired of what the leftist media continues to do to conservatives.”

Wrong again, Sarah.  The American people don’t know what their tired of.  You want to label something as bullshit?  How about a foreign policy that props up despots all in the name of “freedom”?  How about turning a once secular nation into a civil war zone?  How about excluding evidence that the United States gave Iraq it’s biological weapons and nuclear technology?  How about the sacrifice of American’s right all in the name of a bogus ‘war on terrorism’?

Santorum couldn’t aim for the toilet bowl unless the Republican establishment was holding it for him.

I am a conspiracy theorist – as if you couldn’t already tell – so with that being said, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that if you were to present me with a ‘conspiracy theory’, nine times out of ten, I would believe it!

For if there were no conspiracy theories, there would be no conspiracies.  Right?

Yes, I believe September 11, 2001 was an ‘inside job’ (if it wasn’t, then the Bush administration certainly did a  @#!*% good job of letting it happen).  Nothing galls me more than to hear someone say: “Bush kept us safe!”  I would be thinking of Ann Coulter now that I mention it.  Excuse me, but wasn’t Bush POTUS then?

No, we did not go to the moon.  Under the guise of ‘national security’ the government has manufactured biological weapons for which there is no cure.  I am also of the persuasion that we are just lab rats for the pharmaceutical companies.  Seriously, how in the @#!*% does a drug make it to market where “suicidal thoughts or actions may occur”?!

The Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, and the Bohemian Grove; along with the Club of Rome (if they still exist) – can’t forget the Skull and Bones – are all working in a cohesive fashion to bring about a ‘New World Order’.

And no, politicians do not really hate one another!

There is a plethora of conspiracy theories that we can discuss, but I just don’t have the time.  In light of the aforementioned, according to the gov’ment, I probably have a brain disorder of some sort.  The only ones that truly have a brain disorder are the ones that trust what their gov’ment says.

I am a conspiracy theorist!

Reading on the Georgia Guidestones.

Dear Reader, today you have homework.  Your assignment is to find the nearest avid Fox News viewer and point out the double-standards of Faux News and its associations.  By now, you’ve probably been drenched in Rush Limbaugh’s scurrilous remarks of Sandra Fluke; comments that he says were an “attempt to be humorous.”

It may be something new to Rush – but then again he has made a living out of making off-color comments (the habitual ‘open my mouth and insert my big, fat stinky foot’ offender) – but most women, regardless if they deserve it or not, don’t like to be called a “slut” or a “prostitute”.

What’s more disturbing is the comment: “If we’re going to have to pay for this, then we want something in return, Ms. Fluke.  And that would be the videos of all this sex posted online so we can see what we’re getting for our money.”

So Rush Limbaugh likes porn?

Of course, he doesn’t.  He was just provoking, like he always does, right?

Besides the fact that Limbaugh had to stoop to the bottom of the rat-pool to pull out this gem to fill a few minutes on his nefarious talk show, the comments are defaming toward Ms. Fluke.

Granted, I am not for female contraception being paid for by taxpayers dollars other than medical reasons not associated with sex; with that being said, there were a multi-tude of various angles that Limbaugh could have approached the issue.  From a political perspective, perhaps?  As opposed to a slanderous one.

But that is what Limbaugh does, he provokes.  And he evidently provoked me.

By weeks end sponsors began to cancel support of Limbaughs show.

“For over twenty years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation.  I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.”

Sure you did, Rush.  Because that’s what you do.  That’s your M.O.!

The true absurdity is that over all this great country of ours, listeners and followers of Limbaugh are parrotting his remarks.  Already enamored with the “gift of God”, followers will see the left’s attack as clear vindication that Rush is right and the rest of us are all wrong.

But this is not the first time that Limbaugh has made derogatory comments and back-peddaled.  To list all the cases would cause you, Dear Reader, to read until dinner time.  However, Limbaugh’s dragging of political discourse through the muck and mire, and his subsequent one-eighty turn around, proves one point (two points, actually): In cases of the First Amendment in regards to corporate media – money talks.  And rush probably believes in free speech about as much as an adult believes in Santa Clause.  In short, Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer; nothing more, nothing less.

You know, I could find some sort of respect for Limbaugh – although, I would have to drudge the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to find any – if he had just stayed to his guns and gone down with the sinking ship.

If you are a Limbaugh fan and his treatment of an individual does not change your opinion of him one ioda, and it doesn’t cause you cancel your own support of his radio show (you must stop listening to his show), then your not worth the political oxygen that you breathe.

It’s decision time, Dear Reader.  Will it be the blue pill; the one that leads from the influence of the shameless and desolate soul that we have come to call Rush Limbaugh?  Or will it be the red pill; the one that keeps you in the trenches of political damnation.

As for me, I’m taking the blue pill; right along with my morning coffee.
