In order to register for the event on Tuesday where Erick Erickson is slowly and sensuously going to remove each of his items of clothing live on camera before giving Donald Trump the oral servicing of his dreams, I had to sign up to RedState email.
I haven’t seen that much dumb in my computer since George W. Bush came to visit Shady Pines and got his hand caught in my hard drive because I told him there were magic elves with chocolates living in there.
My favorite email so far?
Do mainstream media polls reflect your views?

In partnership with Contract from America and American Majority, we are conducting the 2012 Tea Party Presidential Poll, which gauges support using a unique “run-off” matchup methodology. The methodology is designed to elicit deeper preferences from voters and make it much more difficult for well-organized campaigns to “game” the system. The results continue to be compelling.
Over the next year, the 2012 Tea Party Presidential Poll will be regularly updated to reflect changing preferences, and should serve as an important election tool for the media and campaigns in determining tea party support throughout the 2012 election cycle.
They have even included President Obama and Hilary Clinton in the match-ups, presumably so they can crow about how poorly Mr. Uppity is polling in their unbiased poll.
I’m not sure I’ve ever wished, until just now, that I could travel back through time and remove my eyeballs with a spoon.
Translation: Your vote for Ron Paul will be deleted, bongsucker.
Also, too: Whats up with the creepy silhouette at the bottom of the straw poll graphic? Is that a riot or an orgy or maybe both?
The absence from that list of anyone who has actually declared their candidacy speaks volumes about the shitstorm that is coming for the GOP in 2012. Their primaries are going to get so ugly that everyone will be looking back fondly on the rumors of McCain’s black love-child as a softer, more innocent time in politics. Whoever graduates as valedictorian from that clown college is so screwed in the general election.
I’ve never heard of any of the candidates, except Obama–and I am surprised that they nominated him, though it’s a nice gesture. I don’t think Hillary is running.
damn! they’ve caught on to our master plan of controlling the media and asking gotcha questions in these debates. Causing these staunch patriots to be judged by our skewed and unrealistic standards and not their own. Not since the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor have we seen the sleeping giant of American eggceptionalism aroused and stampeding in our midst. It’s true, that us libruls are aghast at Republicans finally flexing their long lost privilege to govern us as they see fit and have us manipulating and scheming to keep them from their natural birthright.

is there a term for combining the elements of straw and astroturf? there ought to be.
I read that as ‘strawman poll’ which works for me. And, where is MY name? I bet I could get at least 3% if a picture of my tatas accompanied my name.
Those poll results are incredible! Between them, their top five candidates total an incredible 365% support! They can not lose!
To be slightly fair, intra-group surveys are completely par for the course. Daily Kos and the like would run online surveys to see which candidates the community liked in the primary, for example. But calling it a “poll” and saying that the results reflect your group “and thousands of fellow Americans” – that’s just fncking nuts. They’re busily building their consensual universe.
@Warren Terra: To me, the sad part about ‘thousands of fellow Americans’ is that it’s probably true and completely worthless. I bet I could get a few thousand people to vote for my cats if I really put my mind to it. Pathetic.
Feel the Westmentum!
@asiangrrlMN: That sounds quite interesting. Can you perhaps direct me to your website where I can more closely examine your views?
@asiangrrlMN: I believe that if you ran on the “moar tatas” platform you might have issues, people might get confused that you were advocating illegal vegetables or the like, but then again, pictures are worth a thousand votes and all that… :-)
We can still mock and deride them for it though amirite?
Sarah Proud and Tall
I just want to note that ten seconds after you posted the word “tatas” on this thread, an “Asian Girls for Dating” ad appeared.
You have much power.
@cbear: Here is an incisive look at my…platform. There are more views of my…platform…throughout my website.
@piratedan: Yep. I can give starbursts with the best of them!
@Yutsano: So nice, even my gay fake-hubby can’t stop talking about them.
@Sarah Proud and Tall: PHEAR ME! Now, if I could only translate that power into mad monies….
@asiangrrlMN: well at this rate, with your candidacy announced, I’d still rate your chances of being on a Sunday talk show are greater than Rachel Maddow’s ;-)
@piratedan: True! That would be very amusing. For me, anyway. For the others, probably not so much.
And, on topic, thanks, Ms. Sarah, for taking one for the team. You watch it so I don’t have to poke my eyeballs out with my rusty pitchfork.

Well, my sex drive was just ruined forever. How about the rest of you?
@Spaghetti Lee: No. Considerably dampened? Yes, but ruined forever? It takes a much greater image than that to do such a thing. Such as the image of Limbaugh in a thong bikini singing, “I feel pretty, oh so pretty” as he has his Jonah Goldberg shoot Oxycontin into his fat ass for him.
Erick, son of Erick:
Didn’t Obama do something else recently? Something his predecessor failed to achieve?
Oh yeah, now I remember: Obama caught and executed Bin Laden.
And Erick? Bush didn’t. POW! Bada-bing, asshole!
This is all the more reason to consider Herman Cain as a viable alternative.
Create jobs? Pass an actual meaningful (if flawed) funded health care law? Not start dumb wars? (Yes the jury is still out on Libya but we might be exiting there soon if Congress doesn’t get its shit together anyway.) Those are just off the top of my head.
Studly Pantload, now with enhanced schmuckosity
Sure, but just don’t run said mocking alongside a pic of a white dude. Might cause some
pearlgonad clutching here among the more sensitive bee-jayers.

@Sarah Proud and Tall:
I’m sure a veritable plethora of things happened within ten seconds of asiangrrlMN posting the word “tatas,” but we’re probably best not getting off the boat sofar’s that’s concerned.
After reading that first sentence, I am going back to bed with a cup of tea and the good kind of cold meds, if you know what I mean *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
I am surprised that the conservative elites were actually able to successfully supress Palinism. Collusion with the media?
Only Allahpundit and Jeff Goldstein care about her anymore.
The most recent Sarahpac post is May 11.
It occurs to me that maybe the Rupubs prefer to have Obama in office for another 4 years for a variety of reasons, mainly so they can keep their base angry, and hence no real serious candidate.
Plus they really do love to play at being in the oppressed minority.
By Erick Von Erickson’s standards, that’s actually an incredibly polite description of Obama.
This is a guy who called David Souter a goat-fucking child molester. Seriously, who gets that worked up over a ball of beige like David Souter? It’s like screaming at a bowl of Cream of Wheat.
I still can’t believe CNN actually pays this street-corner hobo to offer his opinions on TV. Charles Manson must’ve been out of their price range.
Sarah Proud and Tall
Ah yes, but it seems to have been replaced with Bachmannism, which is just as much fun except with crazier eyes.
So Obama was elected president after serving part of a term in the senate. That’s fairly impressive in itself. Maybe to contrast he could list the vast accomplishments of the list of the “polled” tea party candidates.
Jesus. Everytime a new poll comes along, there’s another name I hadn’t ever heard of.
Though I will say, if Alan West was the guy from the old Batman TV show and Family Guy, Obama would be in trouble.
I am heartened by the strong showing of Michele Bachmann. It would be an awesome presidential race with her in the running.
Because if they don’t, it’s totally reality’s fault.

Rep. Paul Ryan is #1, but Rep. Ron Paul is no where to be found?
Randroid crazies are being excluded from flooding the poll, but a Randroid is number one?
This “poll” has all the credibility of Feldmarschall von Rumsfailed bleating about Saddam’s WMD being somewhere to the north, west, south or east of Baghdad…
Whole thread, win full of.
I don’t know which would be worse — watching Erick Erickson interview Trump or getting email from RedState.
All I know is I would never do the latter in order to be able to do the former.
Sarah, what were you thinking?
I think one thing all the candidates have is a notable lack of excitement surrounding them; they are dispirited and it shows.
I admit, I like that.
This Republican zoo could make it a bit of a challenge (somewhat kiddingly)for The Prez to game-plan his campaign against. Unless he reached into the looneybin. Gonna be an interesting, certainly entertaining, year.
I tweeted Eric that his timing for interviewing Trump was really bad, as the day he announced the interview was the day after the 8% poll came out.
I hope you watch the starry eyed Erick son of Erick lick the feet of Trump, since I wouldn’t watch if my life depended on it.
Looking forward to your unique take on things.
The percentages total more than 100%. Should I be alarmed?
Sarah Proud and Tall
The “poll” is based on showing head-to-head competitions between two “candidates” from which one must choose. I assume that the perentage figure is the percentage of such face-offs won by that person. You can, if you have time, keep voting on different pairs until you run out of internets.

You have my vote just for offering. That is the boldest, most serious plan I’ve ever heard proposed in American politics.
Yes. They got Faux News to offer her a big stack of cash in exchange for not running. I suspect this is going to be their MO for thinning out the Presidential field.
@Sarah Proud and Tall: In other words, it is even less informative than a standard internet poll. Awesome.
It’s called “taking one for the team”, and is usually recognized as noble self sacrifice.
Allahpundit and Daniel “League of the South” Larison concurr.
The libertarian/fiscal conservative candidate will be Huntsman.
AllahP gets an email.
The teaparty candidate will be Bachman or Palin.
Allahp just can’t quit her.
Will the Kreator of Konservative Krazyworlds (AllahP) hopes be dashed? Was this a headfake for Sarah to dodge the lamestream media for a while?
Who can say?
Q: What is the difference between a libertarian and a tea party republican?
A: The libertarian has a college degree.
They’re all *special*!
@JGabriel: Or as we say here in Queens….”get your shinebox”.
I’m against poll stuffing with every fiber of my being.
This “poll” is strongly suggesting to me that I need moar fibers.
As I was telling all my friends, Obama did the same half-term thing as Palin did, only Obama was rewarded with the Presidency. The bias is so obvious.
