    I, as every regular here knows, despise Newton Leroy, but that is one damn good ad – because it’s true.

    Finally…Simple…just the right tone …you have to make a conscious choice to look away from the truth.  I have to say, whoever put Tim Geithner in that ad, thank you so much.

    Y’all do know that the only candidate that’s still in the running who isn’t a Progressive hack, is Ron Paul, right?

    Absolutely! Too bad he didn’t make that commercial earlier and played it nonstop in FLA.

    I wish Mike G. below weren’t right too. Yes, we are well and truly screwed.

    You know that Tim Geithner’s daddy Peter was Obama’s mother’s boss at the Ford Foundation. It’s just one big happy family where they walk away with bailout $$ and we get screwed. 

    Ron Paul or bust for me.

    Newt is far from perfect, but if the choice is Newt or Mitt, I’m going Newt.

    I would imagine that Soros is smart enough to realize he was helping make a commerical for Newt Gingrich when he made those Romney-favorable remarks in Europe.

    No Robert, it’s not going to be Rick. 
    The only thing Rick is doing is assuring
    Romney’s primacy in the primary.

    Of course it isn’t true, but Soros money did pay for the Pelosi-Gingrich couch ad.

    Exactly how to do an attack ad in the primaries.  Attack both your internal and external opponents.

    Here’s hoping Newt has finally found his voice.

    Vox Day had this about two weeks ago. Come on Smitty, read your  blogroll my man.

    And quit sullying Bruce Campbell. He could stomp you.

    How true. Quit the full time job, abandon the 6-month-old, and just read the blogroll all day. 😉
    Seriously, blogging remains a best-effort proposition.
    Furthermore, there is value in repetition, there is value in repetition, so don’t make me send Kull after you.
