Patterico's Pontifications


Sockpuppet Friday – Debate Post-Mortem Edition

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sockpuppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


For Friday’s Frivolity, there are always the GOP debate and upcoming straw poll at my old stomping grounds in Ames, Iowa.  Pawlenty and Bachmann sniped at each other to Romney’s benefit (and to Pawlenty’s detriment, since that performance wont attract good press or big donors).  However, Romney’s answers on RomneyCare still stink, leaving an opening for someone like TX Gov. Rick Perry, who is expected to announce his candidacy on Saturday.   I almost hope Rep. Ron Paul wins the straw poll, if only to give that long-time media mirage a downgrade.

Alternatively, y’all can goof on the world’s first artificial sphincters.  You may even find a connection between the two stories.

  50. This has not been my week. First the bastards at S&P downgrade US debt and I get blamed for knowing it was coming and not tell anyone but Soros.

    Then after $20 million of nationwide labor dues wasted, we can’t win 3 of 6 hand chosen Senate seats in the Wisconsin recall vote. And two Democrat seats are up next week.

    Comsumer confidence is in the tank. I get shit from all sides about vacationing at Martha’s vinyard.

    And to top it all off, some nitwit appeals court judge, appointed by a Democrat no less, votes with the Republican and declares MY healthcare mandate unconsititutional. No way the entire 11th circuit will overturn that decision.

    Lisa Lampanelli (bee204)

  55. As a Nobel Prize Winning Economist™, I can assure you tat I did not need an artificial one from which to pull out my policy prescriptions.

    Paul Krugman (3e4784)

  56. Well, while I agree with the esteemed Dr Krugman, I did pull my tax returns out of one.

    Timothy Geithner (3e4784)

  57. You know, Mr Sullivan, I have never seen an artificial one prolapse before.

    Proctologist, circa 2026 (3e4784)

  58. Yeah, like the syphilis and the AIDS are gonna let me live that long!

  62. I was comment raped!

    Ineeda Bush (093e9c)

  63. Gonna let half of our prisoners out early.

    I anticipate very little negative consequences.

    Seriously. We spent like 5 million of the dollars we don’t have on an impact study about early release.

    It will all be okay.

    BTW, I am requesting stimulus money for the avalanche of sphincter replacement surgeries soon to take place in San Francisco.

    Gov. Jerry! Jerry! (bee204)

  64. I be tappin’ yo plastic azz,
    Tappin’ yo plastic azz

    proglodytes (fd1f4b)

  66. look! someone will give a rats ass after all!! Yay!

    that annoying morning person we all hate (1df0c8)

  67. The Bachmann photo and article in Newsweek can’t possibly be sexist. It’s editor and the reporter who ginned that piece up are both women. I said so this morning on the WAPO editorial page.

    Ruth Marcus, WAPO (0cd6a2)

  68. Come on all of you leftists and nationwide government worker unions. We need more money as we march from one glorious defeat to another. If we can’t turn things back in Wisconsin, then other states will get the same idea and do the one thing that will distroy us: Stop collecting dues through the payroll system. If we would have to go collect it ourselves, no way are the peons going to pay up.

  69. met him in the laundry and my heart stood still
    day doo run run run day doo run run
    somebody told me that his name was Bill
    day doo run run run day doo run run

    yes, his name was Bill
    and when he drove it home
    I couldn’t run run, I couldn’t run

    As seen (and heard) in the clip,
    Barney Frank has had the procedure.
    Pre-operation, his farts sounded like a whispered “hah”.

    I. M. Tightasadrum (3f3c8a)

  71. Pull my finger

    TOTUS (2ffb0c)

  72. That sphincter’s a heck of a tourist draw for Egypt.

    George W. Bush (9d1bb3)

  73. How many times have I told you, George, it’s in Vegas.

    Rick Perry (9d1bb3)

  74. Wait! Who told that I was in Vegas?

    Barracky McMommyPantz (1df0c8)

  75. These comments are sooooo funny! Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha …, oops, ahem, sorry, I lost it for a few moments there.

    easily amused sock puppet (75c9eb)

  76. If Washington DC is a sphincter then the inhabitants are hemorrhoids.

    Well, at least I think they’re a pain in the ass.

    Preparation H (3fdbe0)

  77. In closing, I would like to extend my personal thanks to President Obama. He has proved to be a worst President than me.

    Jimmy Carter (0cd6a2)

  78. Gorebull warming causes less Hurricanes not more barack and his buttcrack licking minions.

    DohBiden (d54602)

  79. Not so fast, Jimma. I’m the Decider and I’m decidely the wurst braut in the fryin’ pan. More ketchup for ma eggs, Laura.

    George W. Bush (9d1bb3)

  80. Timbo lost by Pawlenty. A loooooooooza!

    Louis DePalma (9d1bb3)

  81. It’s great to finish on top!

    Hey Hillary, if you looked half as good as I do, you’d be president instead of the michelleobamasboy. :-)

    Michelle B. (0cd6a2)

  82. “Palin-Bachmann 2012 = Reagan-squared 1980.
    A double-dose of Thatcher.”

    Aw, Jeez. Ding and Bat.

    Archie Bunker (9d1bb3)

  83. 82. It’s great to finish on top!- Michelle B.

    Yeah– and less work for me.

    Marcus Bachmann (9d1bb3)

  84. Alternatively, y’all can goof on the world’s first artificial sphincters.

    Who needs artificial sphincters when the USA’s Legislative and Executive branches clearly manage to fill the required world need for really really big sphincters?

    Jus’ sayin’…

    Flatus Invictus (c9dcd8)

  85. P.S., these things were grown from human tissue. I believe it’s rather clear that they used epithelial cells from politicians for the initial cultures… n’est-ce pas?

    Flatus Invictus (c9dcd8)

  86. I see little reason for having any of these in the DC area. All the politicos there are all such massive victims of CRIS** that their heads are sticking back out the top anyway…

    Yes, this seems as though it ought to be physically impossible, but we have scientists investigating it. We hopey-changey think it may lead to that dream of all SF people, an FTL drive, as we learn how they warp space to accomplish this seemingly impossible task!


    ** CRIS: Cranio-Rectal Insertion Syndrome. The official term, for all you laymen.

    Flatus Invictus (c9dcd8)

  87. Israel will only allow jews in to israel? so how come Israel has a 16% Muslim minority?

    They also have arab christians there do.
