What's your take on the Super Tuesday results? Did Rick Santorum's showing surprise you? What about Gingrich's showing?

Fatso Gingrich and Sanitarium both won big, "in the south".
Brethed new life into their floundering campaigns.
Let's see: among Seniors, Evangelicas, the non-college degreed,.....
Devil worshippers, and The Earth is Flat Society.
Perfect!

My take on Super Tuesday results: yawn.

By: dargent7 on 3/7/12 at 6:43

Ummmm: You've been yawning since last week Tuesday. Better wake up. Any of these fools could get the keys to the W.H..

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 7:02

Darge, you misunderstand the results. The GOP is more fractured than Evil Knievel. This will likely go to a brokered convention and then they'll have to find someone who'll have very little time to prepare for a campaign run in the general election.

As it stands now, Obama could beat any of the GOP candidates...and they know it.

By: Ummm... on 3/7/12 at 7:22

d7, if any of those mental midgets were to get the keys to the White House I guess we would all just have to be grateful that the world is ending on December 21st, a month before they would get to move in.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 7:25

I'm confused, Ummm...is 12/21/12 the rapture or just end of life as we know it? I remember my mother listening to Hal Lindsey when I was a kid, he always mentioned the rapture, seven year tribulation, thousand year reign and then the new heaven and Earth.

Well, I guess since the Mayans are the ones who predicted this, they didn't really count on the second coming...

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 7:28

Good morning, Nashville!

OK...now, through the magic of cut/paste here is my prediction list from yesterday:

By: Loner on 3/6/12 at 6:15

Good morning, Nashville.

The questions:
1. What are your predictions in the GOP primaries on Super Tuesday?
2. Who will be the big winner nationally?
3. Who will win Tennessee?
4. Can you predict the order in which the GOP candidates will finish statewide?

And the envelope please.....my Crystal Balls predict that:

1. Nobody comes out the clear front runner.
2. Romney...sort of.
3. Richard the Zion-hearted.
4. Santorum, Gingrich, Romney & Paul.

Looks like that tune-up on my balls was worth the money

I'm glad that the Republicans are in a state of disarray...so are the major media....as long as this drags on, the ratings will remain high....I just enjoy watching Republicans attacking and eating their own. Jeb Bush is preparing his acceptance speech for the brokered GOP convention?

Supposed to be nice here today...60 degrees and sunny...might have to take a ride on the big thumper.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 7:36

Santorum will save the US using his secret plan: SCRAP.....the Second Coming Rapture Armageddon Program.

Obama used the TARP; Rick has the SCRAP....Tennesseans love the SCRAP approach to governance....when Jesus makes his Second World Tour, Nashville will certainly be on His list....tickets will be nearly impossible to get....scalpers will clean up.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 7:49

The Mayan calendar runs out in 2012, because the calendar carvers were rounded up and killed by the conquistadors in the middle of their work day, while the Mayans were on their lunch break....they never got to finish the job....the superstitious Spaniards thought that the incomplete calendar was a count-down clock to the End Times....the Pope agreed...the rest is history....Santorum is banking on it.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 7:52

Loner, Tennesseans will want a refund when they see Jesus isn't white or American.

By: Ummm... on 3/7/12 at 7:58

Loner, sorry to spoil your crystal ball celebration, but apparently Romney finished second in Tennessee, not Newt.

I wasn't aware that the mayan calendar guys were offed on their lunch break- I guess that means we really do need to worry about who the next president will be (it was so comforting thinking there wouldn't be one).

Gd, if he's a white Israeli Jew, they will worship Him...otherwise, they will demand a refund...you are right on that. Christ never renounced Judaism, Jesus was not a Christian, he was a Jewish Rabbi....He will return as such, I suppose....maybe Netanyahu is Jesus, in plain clothes...undercover? Maybe he is the Anti-Christ?

By: Ummm... on 3/7/12 at 7:59

Yikes! The mayan gods are angry! They made my post into quadruplets!

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:05

My balls are correct...the recount will bear that out, Ummm....Gingrich actually beat Romney in TN.

The Spanish were smart, they ambushed the calendar carvers as they punched back in after their lunch break....they all carried golden lunch boxes w/golden thermos bottles....the Spaniards killed them for their lunch kits....the gilded lunch boxes were smelted down and cast into crucifixes....then taken to Rome.

By: dargent7 on 3/7/12 at 8:06

It is facinating, to a certain degree.
My guru's were Maharishi Maesh Yogi (The Beatles guy), and Parasmahanda Yogananda. I lived in Cardiff, CA for a time (10 years) across from The Hermitage.
Use to surf at Swami's, and drink coffee at Miracles Cafe...How's that for spirituality?
Anyway, looking at these gaggle of fools, liars, adulterors, idiots, and snake oil salesmen who want the W.H., it's truly astounding.
In 2012, America has this swarm of jackels viaing for the W.H.
In the 60's and 70's they spoke of "peace and brotherhood". Today, it's, "do we bomb Iran today, or tomorrow"? Maybe let's put it off for a week".
Now, they all promise is that gas at $2.50 a gallon and women CANNOT receive birth control via the US government. 2012 is highly overrated.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:08

Ummm...you got something sticky on your keyboard and mouse? That was God's way of punishing you for pointing out the temporary "discrepancy" in my Ball Predictions....the recount will bear out my balls.

By: Kosh III on 3/7/12 at 8:09

Loner,

Yesterday you posted a query about the Mormons; here's some info for you

"“I will preach on the plurality of Gods… I have always declared God to be a distinct personage, Jesus Christ a separate and distinct personage from God the Father, and that the Holy Ghost was a distinct personage and a Spirit: and these three constitute three distinct personages and three Gods.” —Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 37

“By definition, exaltation includes the ability to procreate the family unit throughout eternity. This our Father in heaven has power to do. His marriage partner is our mother in heaven. We are their spirit children, born to them in the bonds of celestial marriage… For as we have a Father in heaven, so also we have a Mother there, a glorified, exalted, ennobled Mother.”

And yes, Lucifer and Jesus are "spirit-brothers"

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:18

Right on, Darge, our iconic theme song , Kum-Ba-Yah, has now degenerated into "Bomb, bomb, bomb... bomb bomb Iran". The Flower Children are now the fat cats...they burned out on Peace, Love, Dove....now they just want to kill Muslims and expedite the End Times....Helen Thomas gave us a hint as to why this is so.....they destroyed her, for her honesty and frankness.

By: govskeptic on 3/7/12 at 8:18

Neither the whining of Gail Kerr nor the demagoguery of M.R. Burch kept Santorum
from winning this state. Mitt would probably have been the winner
had it not been for his endorsement by Haslam, Harwell and Senator
Alexander! Ohio was pretty amazing in the race between those two
and no surprise but "Joe the Plumber" won in a congressional
primary race!

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 8:26

Apparently Gov is happy that a dumbass plumber can be elected to Congress. Only in America. I suppose it can't hurt their approval rating...

I never doubted Santorum would win the buckle of the Bible Belt. If that's breaking news, it must be a slow news day.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:28

Kosh...that's the kind of stuff that the preacher was saying on that Christian broadcast that I had mentioned yesterday. Multiple Gods? Jesus and Satan are brothers? Humans can become Gods too? Mary was physically fertilized by sperm from God? The lost tribes of Israel were here in the US? Jesus came to the states before returning to his throne?

Mormonism is whacky stuff...most Americans have no idea just how whacky it is....we are all going to find out, I'm sure.

Ironically, the divided faith-based voters will be marginalized in November, because of their infighting and internecine squabbling over dogma...it's poetic justice, IMO...the Christians are being bedeviled by their own hypocrisy and bigotry.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 8:32

Whackier than an invisible spirit that has no beginning or end, that created the Earth in 6 days, killed women and children, advovated slavery and women being subservient to men...but loves us enough to have us burn in eternal damnation if we don't obey him/it?

I'd say it's all pretty strange, it's just the degree of strange that's in question.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:36

Joe the Plumber expanded his 15 minutes of fame into a shot at a 2-year gig in the House...now he can collect big from the PACs and super-PACs....just like the guys he used to denigrate and loathe...now he is a politician himself...from turd-chaser to candidate for Congress....only in Amerika....where notoriety is just as good as fame....you gotta give the guy credit....the voters in his district are big fans of Dancing With The Stars....and the "reality" shows....I hope that Joe's work in the House backs up their toilets.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/7/12 at 8:38

There is no question that the productive Americans are in disarray over the direction of this country. This comes across loud and clear when one looks at the race for the Republican nomination.

The people who are in favor of "free stuff" and the envious stand firm in their positions.

Barack Hussein Obama will win in November with 54% of the popular vote.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 8:41

That prediction may be accurate, Raputin. I just hope that when you speak of "free stuff", you include those who receive corporate welfare, tax breaks, etc. Otherwise you're only telling half the story.

By: dargent7 on 3/7/12 at 8:44

I watched the movie, "Shallow Hal" for the 5x time last night. There's a scene where Jason Alexander, his best friend, shouts out from the bathroom, "Hey Hal, come look at this turd I just made!"
It totally describes the Republican party.

By: Loner on 3/7/12 at 8:46

I agree, Gd, it all started out as Judaism, the Jews killed the non-Jews in their neighborhood and took their land....then the Gentiles usurped their messiah myth and started killing Jews and Pagans....then the Arabs, not to be outdone, took the Judeo-Christian myths and added a holy warrior motif to the heresy....the Great Crusades failed to settle the issue; after thousands were slaughtered, the holymen put the issue to rest...in 1948, the UN picked the scab and the blood has not stopped flowing out of the Holy Land ever since.

So, when these heretics start calling each other heretics, we can conclude that humanity has not evolved much since the days of Abraham....our species is a bit whacky, IMO.

By: Ummm... on 3/7/12 at 9:10

Loner said: "our species is a bit whacky, IMO."

Congratulations, you have just won the understatement of the year award! Unfortunately, the prize is a front row seat at this year's Republican convention.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/7/12 at 9:16

Gdiafante..........I count you among the envious.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 9:19

Envious of what? Free things? Name one person who doesn't want something for free and I'll show you a cadaver.

By: yogiman on 3/7/12 at 9:25

I hope the hell you're wrong on your Obama will win in November statement, Rasputin72. If he does, legally or illegally, and Congress allows it to happen, you can kiss the USA goodbye.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 9:29

Yogi, I've established that he's there legally, so you should just focus on controlling your mental impairment through medication.

By: BenDover on 3/7/12 at 10:03

Didn't someone pick Santorum, Romney, Newt and Paul for TN... in that order?

By: BenDover on 3/7/12 at 10:17

Mormonism is whacky... Black Liberation Theology is dangerous... evidence 4 Trillion in extra debt over-trend plus all of the TARP repayments squandered on geegaws and gimcracks.

Marx, Alinsky and his crazy anti-colonial daddy are all smiling up at their boy from hell.

By: joe41 on 3/7/12 at 10:19

If Romney or Santorum are the GOP candidate and win, I suppose that we will have to plan for another war. That is what has happened every time the GOP gets into office lately.
Joe

By: yogiman on 3/7/12 at 10:20

What evidence did you use to establish him there legally, giagfante? Tell me, what actual fact do you know about the man except he is known as the first black president of the USA?

Do you accept the paper he presented as his birth certificate, even though the hospital shown as his place of birth didn't exist by that name in 1961? There was two hospitals then, they were known as Kaui Keolani Childrens' Hospital and the Kapa Olani Maternity & Gynecological Home.

Another question: Why is the number on his 'birth certificate' lower than the numbers given to twins born the day after him.

And when did African become a race? I always thought an African was an citizen of the African continent.

So, what information are you using as evidence when you don't even positively know the man's name?

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 10:24

It's over, yogi, you can't prove your point. I suggest you actually read what I posted. I'm not re-posting, I've already done that a few times. I'm sorry you aren't smart enough to get it the first time, but that's your problem.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 10:24

This is fargin' war!

-Roman Maroni

By: yogiman on 3/7/12 at 10:31

Sorry, gdiafante,

But it seems you don't know what the Constitution is. The only answer you have is what your anti-republican mentality your brain has given you. If you have more evidence than his autobiography and the laws of 1961, I'd like to see it.

Do you actually know more than his "birth certificate" shows as evidence?

Didn't think so.

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 10:32

It's like talking to brick wall...a very thick, brick wall.

By: bfra on 3/7/12 at 10:39

gdiafante - A brick wall serves some purpose, yogi serves none.

By: dargent7 on 3/7/12 at 10:42

"yogi": How is Romney "eligible" for the office of President when his dad, and grandfarther, and 3 generations of "Romney's" were all born in Mexico?
Seems like an illegal, alien generational tree, to me.

By: yogiman on 3/7/12 at 10:47

joe41,

Are you saying it's okay for the US to be in a war when a Democrat is President but they're dead wrong to be in a war when a Republican is President?

Look into the wars of our history. How many were started when a democrat was in office and how many was started when a republican was in office?

How can one blame the other?

By: gdiafante on 3/7/12 at 10:47

Sure he does, bfra. He serves as an example to us all that in a modern 21st century society, there are still some people who think the world is flat, the Earth is the center of the universe, and the Constitution says things that it clearly does not.

Ben, just when I think ya got some sense, you come out lookin' like yogi in drag!!! And seriously... you still want to refer to the President using the word "boy"?
