Brownback and Romney fight over who is the bigger jackhole

Not that there was much chance of either Brownback or Romney getting my vote in 2008, but this little dust-up seals it.  Romney’s new ad:

I’m deeply troubled about the culture that surrounds our kids today… I’d like to see us clean up the water in which our kids are swimming. I’d like to keep pornography from coming up on their computers. I’d like to keep drugs off the street. I’d like to see less violence and sex on TV and in video games and in movies. If we get serious about this we can actually do a great deal to clean up the water in which our kids and grandkids are swimming.

Does the word “parenting,” or the concept of responsible parenting show up in this ad anywhere?  No?  Imagine that.  Brownback’s idiotic “I can be a bigger nosy Nelly than you” response:

In a move rich with irony, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign released a new television advertisement decrying “the culture that surrounds our kids today,” despite the fact that Romney served on the board of Marriott International, which generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue through in-room pornography services at its hotels.

In stark contrast with Romney’s role at Marriott, which brought him over $100,000 per year, Senator Sam Brownback lead the fight against indecency and asked the hotel chain to stop offering pornography in its rooms.

Senator Brownback has been a leader on decency and media issues… Despite facing intense industry opposition, Brownback has worked to strengthen video game ratings standards and to study the impact of media on childhood development.

Hey Senator Brownback, would you care to maybe study the impact of involved parenting on childhood development?  How about the concept of responsibility?  Does that affect childhood development in any way?

God how I loathe the social conservative.  It’s not like there’s a better option on the left though.  Democrats are gearing up for another round of “Let’s ban the popular media format of the decade” all over the country.  Last time it was music, this time it’s video games.

If Fred Thompson or Rudy Giuliani come out with this crap too, I might just not vote at all.  I’ve had it.  Social conservatives can kiss my ass.  Let me say it again, for the morons in the cheap seats:

THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEMS.  YOU ARE.

We really need to sit these dipshits down and have them watch south park.  I mean seriously how many episodes of that show are there where the “moral” of the story is “this wouldn’t have been a fucking issue if the parents had taken responsibility instead of demanding that others do their job”

They wouldn’t get the message. Instead they’d be struck aghast by the swearing and violence.

Ouch. Goddamn. I was eyeballing Romney as a pick for a while, but the more he opens his mouth on the campaign trail, the less I like him. This is more of the same. Do the Republicans actually have a candidate worth a damn coming up? With the exception of Ron Paul, it seems to be more of the old guard.

Fred Thompson seems like a get the gov out of your house statist, but who knows. Rudy/Fred might be a good combination.

Social authoritarianism is the biggest factor in my voting decisions. Anymore, the person who gets my vote will be the one who talks about what they AREN’T going to do.

Romney doesn’t even know where he stands on issues.  It’s hilarious hearing him talking about how he is pro second amendment while supporting gun bans. Same thing with Rudy.  At this point, Paul’s got my vote.

Apparently we have a new species, the Jackholalope!

The Jackholalope is not to be confused with the Jackalope. However both run quickly, Jackholalopes running from truth-civic duty and logic, and reproduce exponentially, just can’t seem to get rid of them. The Jackholalope has become a scourge on the political landscape and should be inhumanely eliminated to allow for re-population with civic leaders who understand the founding fathers, the constitution and the people they have been elected by to serve. Statalopes? Anyone? Oh shut up.

At this point, Paul’s got my vote.

I’m more of a Ringo fan…

I’ll go with Peter.  He’s the one who always gets robbed so they can count on the support of Paul.  That guy deserves a break for once.

Any government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.—George Bernard Shaw

Screw Peter and Ringo.

I’m voting for Paul.

...Stanley.

Lick it up, bitch.

As a confirmed Jenova’s Witness, it’s my duty to write-in vote for Sephiroth.

By the way, have all of you heard about Reunion? I have some lovely pamphlets…
