Today in Santorum




Apparently, Rick Santorum has a Twitter problem along with his Google problem. (via)

Also, too: Dog pee can’t stop Santorum.

    Oh Behave!

    Hot coffee through the nose is just a bit uncomfortable — but snorting with delighted derision, is perhaps, adequate compensation for same.

    @Tom Levenson: I barely prevented the same thing, and had to turn away from the monitor lest I read the next tweet. Shades of Monty Python’s Most Dangerous Joke.

    Are we sure RickSantorumPR isn’t a fake? Actually, I’m assuming it is until proven otherwise. Just too rich to be Rick.

    Couldn’t happen to a more worthy sanctimonious prick. Personal humiliation is the way to fight them since they can’t be reasoned with. No one can stand to be mocked forever, except maybe Palin who’s delusional.

    ETA: I’m assuming that the Twitter account is a spoof. It has to be. It HAS to be.

    Accounts that end in PR usually are parody accounts, like this one. A more famous example was @BPGlobalPR.

    @Poopyman: Obvious fake, yhink bpglobalpr. There are other hilarious tweets at the link. Don’t look with beverages in mouth.

    Obvious fake but fascinating all the same. The conversion of Santorum’s name into an obscenity is so subtle that even ordinary campaign style slogans (this is from the fake twitter feed) like:

    “Come with me, America!” read like porn. Couldn’t happen to a nastier piece of work.

    Anthony Weiner apparently has a twitter problem, too.

    I saw “I’m behind America and ready to leave my mark!” retweeted by someone I follow and just about bust my gut I was laughing so hard.

    @arguingwithsignposts: OK, OK. Quite obvious once I finally went straight to the site, throbbing with Santorum action:

    While you’re enjoying those Memorial Day wieners with friends and family don’t forget to spread a little Santorum at your BBQs this weekend!

    my mother the other night, said she doesn’t think he could win penn hills pa, much less pennsylvania. then she went on to say, that as long as the old people who remember him are around, he has no chance. she was worried that younger people might not know how horrible he is, and support him.

    as dog as my witness, i wanted to put her mind at ease, but i didn’t know how to explain it.

    @John Cole:

    @anthonyweiner’s Tweets are protected.

    Well, everyone should use protection.

    What’s AW’s tweet problem?

    I think ‘dog’ is a good way to start.

    So instead they voted for uberdouchebag Club-For-Growther Pat Toomey, who is arguably worse because he’s smarter.

    oh no he din’t?!?

    if i was a momma of a young republican, he wouldn’t be attending any santorum rally without protection …lololololol..

    @Fucen Pneumatic Fuck Wrench Tarmal:

    Your mom is correct. The people of Penn Hills detest him for ripping them off for all those tax dollars he took for his kids’ education when they never lived in Penn Hills but actually lived year round in DC. And abandoned home in is name was his only claim to that money and people in Penn Hills knew they didn’t and never did live in that house, which, if you’ve seen it, you know there’s no way Ricky and his huge brood had ever intended to live in it.

    @gypsy howell:

    Actually, knowing the demographics of Penn Hills, my guess is that they voted for Joe Sestak. Doubt very much that area went for Toomey.

    Oh, no, he didn’t write those. Do you think he has an aide who does nothing but his tweets who really just hates his guts? That would be my guess.

    @geg6: This Post-Gazette editorial should be rerun just to remind folks of Santorum’s character.

    @geg6:

    one of my mom’s friends was a gop committee person or whateveryoucallit there, which is why she made the reference, her friend apparently hated santorum before it was popular. he burned many bridges.

    @gypsy howell:

    i’m cautiously optimistic that the Marcellus Shale Discount Sale, will santorize the state’s gop, but sadly, yes, there was a price to be paid for them turning their backs on santorum.

    @Tom Levenson: I hope I never suddenly develop such a sophisticated sense of humor that this frothy mix of jokes wouldn’t send me into gales of giggles.

    @gypsy howell: Actually, in taking down Santorum, they voted for Bob Casey Jr.

    Absolutely the funniest thing I’ve read on the Internets Tubes all week!

    Proof positive that Rick really really really is much stupider than even Sarah Palin. Beyond a doubt.

    If his election lasts for more than four hours, he should probably consult a doctor.

    I have to say, about the dog pee story; it sounds like Santorum is halfway to a Penthouse Forum letter and then changes it around to make a more Christianist-approved message.

    Now that the Huckster is out, the burden is on Sanitarium to pour the jesus juice. Being the true patriot real American hero that he is, he will gladly drag that cross to the hilltop.

    @Daddy-O: Check out the Twitter account. Zero doubt that it’s a parody. Still hilarious.

    He’s the gift that keeps on giving. His campaign slogan is good too: stolen from Langston Hughes.

    I am not sure that “focusing on an outcome” is a smart thing to do. Focusing on an outcome means you are focusing on the future, and that isn’t effective whatsoever.

    Another parody account has just been launched, this one for Paul Ryan.

    Two faves so far:

    I don’t get it. Seniors love coupons.

    And:

    Let me repeat the *only* Americans who will be hurt by the Ryan Plan are the 79% who are currently under age 55.

    @Joel:

    speaking of, kurt warner told a better version of that exact story, during one of deion sanders’ hold on player segments, of course in his version, a lady borrowed money from him at a gas station, and wanted him to follow her home so she could repay him.

    and no i don’t know why i remember him telling the story, my mind is odd like that, but.

    far be it from me to suggest that santorum is stealing from warner, or that warner’s or santorum’s story didn’t happen, but it sounds like a jesusy trope.

    @bkny:

    Someone posted about this in one of the lower threads. Said it was a breitbart related fake. I don’t care much for Wiener, but I doubt he did this.

    Fred says:

    @ruemara: Yawn….are you people still dumb enough to fall for yet another Briebart manufactured stunt?

    The screen grab of Wieners twitter account was photoshopped. Shock right?! Sigh……………

    Get a clue people!

    PR twitter accounts are an internet tradition. You should familiarize yourself with them.

    Allan says:

    @Violet: It appears that the creator of the PaulRyanPR account has been fiddling with the name, etc. When it launched, it had no indication that it was a satire, and linked to Ryan’s congressional website. This may have violated Twitter’s terms of service, hence the adjustments.

    @sukabi:

    RawStory, DKos, and others have debunked Brietbarts’ claims of Weiner’s weiner

    OOPS! Weiner cut off his Kos apologists/pixel analysts at the knees with his “my account was hacked” excuse. So the posts weren’t altered by Boogeyman Breitbart like the Kossacks “proved!” He’s admitting they were sent, just that he didn’t send them. (We’ll expect an apology from Kossacks to Breitbart about…never.)

    Of course, like every other famous person who uses that “my account was hacked” excuse after they post something stupid, Weiner’s probably lying. His innocence in this matter would involve an incredible series of coincidences that only true drones would believe.

    Look, the guy was sending a boner-shot to his side-piece and accidentally sent it as a public tweet instead of a private message. He couldn’t pull it down fast enough, and It got Out. It’s between him and his wife if he just owns up, but pols never get that the cover-up is worse than the crime, do they? They’re convinced they’re so much smarter than the ignorant simpletons who elect them.

    @Bender: anyone who would believe ANYTHING Breitbart posts is an idiot. He’s been involved in more fraud than Goldman Sacs.
