The Santorum is Near

Let’s go to the tape:

We know. We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like: the antiwar, government nig — uh, the — fuh — the, uh — America was a source for division around the world, that what we were doing was wrong, and we need to pull out, and we need to pull back.

Our call? Safe at home. But while we’re there, “We need to pull out” would be our choice for out-of-context soundbite.

At the Name of Obama demons will tremble. Or at least get flustered.

So how long until asshole say “he only said part of the word because Obama’s just a Halfrican haw haw haw”?

That’s what most teapublican’ts want. A candidate who call Obama that name. Over and over again, just like they do at home or when only other white people are listening. They want Obama called that name in a debate as well. This fact is undeniable.

My suspicion is that Santorum possibly meant another word, but based on his past idiocy not many folks will cut him any slack and (I for one) would not be surprised if he meant to say the Ni-clang-er.

@redmanlaw: I see you’ve taken to reading Knoxnews lately. It’s not hard to see how right wing this place is, huh? Check the comments for more proof. I post there as LiptonBagwell, a colbert like dumbass redneck. Only one of these teabaggers has caught on. Check the recent abortion story.

@ManchuCandidate: I spent ten minutes trying to get the transcription just right, and for the life of me I can’t figure out what he was trying to say.

For example, “antiwar, government nigger” just doesn’t work. But if you cut yourself off saying “ni”, are you going to insert a consonant before “uh”? (Close call: It kinda works that way. Your mouth may vary. Or maybe it’s a K and not a G.)

Rick’s not using teleprompters because the Constitution forbids it, so we don’t have prepared text to consult. But maybe some Embed has heard the stump speech a hundred times already, and can report what Rick usually says at that moment.

@nojo: I could’ve sworn that an earlier version of the Raw Story piece included a staffer’s explanation that he meant to say “big government,” which sort of works, assuming you accidentally flip the word order and substitute n for b, but even then it’s unclear how that fits into criticism of Obama’s foreign policy, given that Republicans are the ones typically pushing for big government in foreign affairs.

@jwmcsame: A gun blog called saysuncle.com lynx to stories from there. The guy who runs it is actually a friend of a friend.

My friend used to live in a cool house on a lake there in Knoxville. I would pretend not to be jealous when he would post on FB about going panfishing after work. Dude had to sell it when he and his wife found new employment elsewhere. I met Mrs RML at my friend’s house when he lived in Albuquerque about 20 years ago.

@mellbell: Hey, Son of RML and I were geeking out over Titanoboa the other day. I’m sure your cousin is familiar with the stories from around here about Avanyu, a water deity that has the form of a giant serpent (!).

“Nitwit. Antiwar, government nitwit. President Obama is a silly sausage! There, I’ve said it. I bet he likes girls. Real chaps don’t like girls. Chaps like chaps. Unless they’re socialists or extremely silly. Nigel will now lead us in some jolly super prayers. Then my wife has laid on a super supper of baked beans of toast with lashings of nice hot tea.”

Wait. What?

@redmanlaw: Well, maybe next he’ll land on a channel I actually receive.

@redmanlaw: It’s funny, he’s actually a mammal guy by trade, but this Titanoboa thing has legs (see what I did there?), so now he’s the snake guy. Speaking of which, if you watch the Smithsonian doc on Sunday, you’ll see him on the business end of an anaconda.
