More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

Romney is that repulsive.

...of Romney that perfectly captures his perpetual surprised wienie look. I guess all that flip-flopping has worn away every last vestige of bone from his skeleton.

. . . that to parody a democrat, you have to present him in a way that is over-the-top - different from any way you have ever seen him. Like when SNL showed Obama doing a celebration dance after killing Bin Laden. Or when Clinton was shown eating french fries at McDonald's. In reality, Obama was very congratulatory to the Navy Seals and the intelligence gatherers and didn't grab credit himself. Also, I think Clinton lost weight while he was the president. What makes these situations funny is that they are "scenes we would love to see".
However, when it is time to poke fun at a Republican, all you have to do is portray them the way they are: Palin being interviewed. Boehner crying. Romney spinning a negative into a positive.

ing Lobbyist Pope-Wanna-Be, and I'm not sure about the "Self-" part, although he would thoroughly enjoy flagellating some other poor soul, preferably female. (OK he would be self-flagellating some part of his body with the other hand)

outrage over organ harvesting charges:
I think liberals are being a tad hypocritical. Ordinarily they love recycling, but when a conservative like me is behind it, they sing a different tune.

patented Rent-a-Kidney, they just repossessed it.
Bain found a better deal, a corporate client that would lease the kidney and pay Bain management fees to "monitor" it and replace it when it starts to function at lower efficiency....
See, RMoney does care about the poor: as incubators for rich people's replacement body parts.....

... or did he mean to say sever conservatism? Either way if these 'revelations' actually turn out to be true it should improve his chances for getting the Republican nomination. It is real red meat, as they say (sorry).
We have only just begun and none too soon.

can assure primary voters that organ harvesting and human trafficking constitute his core beliefs then he should have no problem defending those practices on the basis of religious freedom.
by Red Bean on Mon Feb 13, 2012 at 07:50:23 AM PST
...a problem common to both Romney and Santorum. Hmm.

On our Earth we're talking about forcing women to have rapist's babies in order to create a bigger market for the organ harvesters.
I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

I've been amazed and appalled that anyone thinks Ron Paul is "anti war." There's a difference between being anti tax of his gold coin hoard, and actually caring about the reduction of armed conflict.
So I've been researching his positions, especially as they relate to Africa.
When US participation in a UN program to study and monitor the modern slave trade, Ron Paul was against it.
Considering that the US not only outlawed the slave trade in 1808 but the US Navy actively suppressed the slave trade, and considering that the slave owning states supported this, and that the slaveocracy Virginia legislature voted to suppress the slave trade in the 1790s, this means Ron Paul is actually more regressive and reactionary than southern slave states circa 1800.
It would be nice if your last panel were satire but given the state of the Republican primary candidates, it's not very difficult to satirize them.

To increase the price of domestically "produced" slaves. It was all about capitalism and market manipulation then, too.
The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

But Romney was able to walk away with huge profits anyway by selling upper middle class victims back their missing parts.

walk into a bar. The bartender says, Hi Senator Santorum, Governor Romney, Dr. Paul, and Speaker Gingrich
by Churchill on Mon Feb 13, 2012 at 08:05:15 AM PST
I thought I heard that somewhere.

A significant portion of the seed money that created Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, Bain Capital, was provided by wealthy oligarchs from El Salvador, including members of a family with a relative who allegedly financed rightist groups that used death squads during the country’s bloody civil war in the 1980s

A+ from me.
Biting and incisive. Along with the hilarious, of course.

is his phony laugh...heh heh heh
My social security, medicare and military retirement are EARNED benefits. The checks Paris Hilton and the Waltons receive while sitting around the pool are entitlements. Don't let the Republicans confuse you.
