    And how does that deal with the issues of the next election??

    Perhaps they should have a separate thread for those who feels the name of the candidates are amusing and they can test their schoolyard cleverness there.


    I suppose Monty Python (and what a funny name that is!!) will forever remain cutting edge to some people.

    How about this

    Turtledude who brought up Witches, newts and Newt into this thread is not a raging liberal. He is what most would consider a libertarian conservative. You truelly are getting outraged over something the childish liberals have not done

    I am truly not outraged, just bored with the low level quality of debate, and humor, when the 'newt' jokes were exhausted 16 years ago. He has just announced his candidacy so we can expect the same 'jokes' to be trotted out ad nauseum for the next year and a half.

    No doubt. We do like to joke about a president's (or any high profile figure) name. Barry Hussain Soetero Obama certainly hasn't been exempt from that.

    Now, if Rick Santorum gets nominated, just imagine what will be said about that name (google "santorum" and see).

Welfare should be a tool to help people when they come on hard times to get back on their feet and find jobs and not be used the way it is now.

    As for the racist thing, while I don't believe most conservatives are racists, yes they are out there. I don't think racism follows any particular party lines, but it definitely exists and would come into play a little bit.
    I think Cain is going to have a problem because of his past gigs and guest hosting of radio shows. He has floated thousands of sound bytes that can be used against him. A candidate who is on record offering his opinions on almost everything has given his opponents a gift of ammunition to use against him.

    Yes, it cost a lot of money to clean up after the last administration.
