You're Gonna Drive Me To Drinkin'


As The Heretik says, the latter parts of the article mention the awfulness of some of Newt's ideas. But there's no excuse for that headline and lede.

In other This Country Is Insane news, here's Women for Cain. And Donald Trump will be moderating a gooper debate (sponsored by Newsmax) in Des Moines on Dec. 27.

That headline is accurate, it just left out the details that said factory would crush the children who work there in its gears, give the surrounding communities cancer, and produce platforms that collapse the minute they have any weight put on them.

The fact that this man is getting as much consideration as he is just boggles my mind. Does no one remember anything??

Jennifer said...

Silly me, I forgot how it all works. Never mind.

I'll take one of those drinks.

Brando said...

No, they don't teach history in home school.

Am I paranoid for thinking the Obama re-election committee is engineering this? Because Candidate Newt is a much easier path to re-election than actually, you know, BEING A DEMOCRAT and DOING STUFF THAT THE DEMOCRATIC BASE LIKES.

Wall Street and the M.I.C. will be most disappointed if Obama is reelected, zrm.

He's been hell on them.

Gas-bag; blow-hard; creep. His 'ideas' are unsound for so many reasons it makes one's head spin.

Not all ideation is positive, good, humane, or, dare I say it, wise. Man's a fool, but, no doubt about it, clever. That's what scares me.

His ego and corruption will bring him down.

I shake my head and wonder when I died I went into this universe and why I can remember bits from the other universe where things were a little more sane. I mean, if I was sooo bad that I should get into the same timestream as Gingrich and Bachmann and Ahmadinejad and even John Key, I should have some trigger or something that kicks in when I am being less than honest or something, surely. Because I can't be allowed to do whatever it-was again.

Bmpthnx! for the Kind!

Can't say I approve of the methods to get there, but I approve of the end results. Cheers!

Are Caesars the only thing getting you through the day now? :P

vs, there aren't many kittens around here on the mountain. Mostly people keep them indoors because of speeders and critters.

Nonetheless, post updated with more drinkin', and fire.

That's what you stomach looks like with that hawtsorce in it

Substance McGravitas said...

Mmm, now I want clam juice.

Calming images. :-) You are too much!

Whose idea was the celery? Why not a carrot?

Randal Graves said...

Didn't they just have one of these election things a couple of years ago?

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

knowdoubt, I have never heard of a carrot as a Bloody Mary garnish...although the idea makes sense.

I like to have a citrus wedge in there, too. Limes are on sale and I'm on way to the store anyways.

Here's a Bloody Caesar recipe along the lines of what S. McG (IF that is his real name!) was referring to.

I like to go with v-8, meself.

P.S. Good point, R.G. Apparently we're election addicts...yet we never get it right.

Funny thing, Mandos.

I went to Pittman's Market in Hancock, Md. today, and was able and ready to buy Clamato for the taste test.

But there was none to be had.

Mandos said...

In MD? You need to go all the way to the DC area to find it. Anything on University Blvd, or even the Target in Hyattsville. Where lots of Hispanic people shop, is best. However, they never carry the Extra Spicy version (to which you still add Tabasco but it is still better) and it is 2X the Canadian price, or used to be until the US dollar started falling.

Dragon-King Wangchuck said...

This is what I mean. I've re-typed this comment three times trying to make some witty remark about Caesars.

wev. When in doubt, go with Haiku.

Farenholdt does not
Get that factories make stuff
That is all the same.

Women for Cain is
Not for solicitation
Of booty calls. Yet.

Dragon-King Wangchuck said...

A little vodka
Tomatoes, worcestershire and heat
But where are teh clams?

Dragon-King Wangchuck said...

You do gotta give teh GOP moneymen some credit though. The anti-establishment nominee is Newt. That's a masterful piece of slight of hand.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

OMG, it's DKW!

Welcome to my humble abode.

As for the Clamato, I will find it, and make a Caesar.

D&D Demands IT.

Speaking of delish or disgust and characteristically Canoodlian comestibles, POUTINE!

My Drunk Kitchen, he lol'ed.

Thunder, I haven't either, don't know much about drinking except cheap beer and wine, just trying to be funny. I din;t even know it was a margarita.
