Santorum: 'Romney bought the CPAC straw poll.' Then fails the syllogism.



Rick Santorum suggested on Sunday that Mitt Romney's campaign may have rigged a straw poll of conservative activists by paying the entrance fee for supporters.

Romney beat Santorum by 7 points Saturday in a straw poll of almost 3,500 attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Santorum pointed out that Ron Paul had won the poll in both of the past two years "because he just trucks in a lot of people pays for their ticket, they come in and vote and then leave."

"I don't try to rig straw polls," Santorum said on CNN's State of the Union.


Paul actually came in last on Saturday, having declined to address the conference or to activate his base for the straw poll. But Santorum said that wasn't the case with Romney.

"You have to talk to the Romney campaign and how many tickets they bought," Santorum said. "We've heard all sorts of things."

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment




ahem Mr. Santorum, "Citizens' United"

Get it?

Not Yet?

Do I have to connect to dots?

Hmmm how about a syllogism. Confused? sill o gism. No notnot that kind of gism.

Never mind, her it is.

"Romney buying the CPAC straw poll is the same as Citizens United is to what?"

Nothing? Seriously? is to bbbbbbbbbbbuuuuuuyyyyyiiiiiiinnnnnnggggg the ggggggggeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn

Oh for fucks sake Santorum

"Romney buying the CPAC straw poll is the same as Citizens United is to BUYING THE FUCKING GENERAL ELECTION"


Idiots cannot even put two fucking two together.

2. Because he who has the most sweater vests wins?

Listen, we need to contact President Obama's re-election staff pronto this week, and have President Obama agree to do a photo op in the White House in the West Wing or whatever, wearing a dark gray heather sweater vest.
And then as he is talking to someone there, other male members of his staff, quietly walk in to the room, maybe 3 or 4 at first, then 5 or 6, and they are ALL wearing dark gray heather sweater vests.

Santorum will be sure to notice and he will make a snide remark about it publicly.
You know he will, he won't be able to resist.
But, President Obama and his entire re-election team never respond to his remarks.
They never wear those sweater vests ever again.
But, it will get under Little Ricky's skin faster than a Georgia tick.

Then as Little Ricky is ignored, he is sure to take it personally and make even more noise about it.
But, the President never says a word about it.
Just ignores him.

4. lol along the same lines we should have the President sing 'America the Beautiful'

And then the Romney campaign would literally have nothing left to say.

5. Well, I see that as enough of a stretch that Santorum won't get it

If we had poll taxes and a candidate paid a voter's poll tax, that would be equivalent. Sometimes big money spent on advertising doesn't win an election. Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman taught us that.

I did like your breakdown of syllogism, including what it was not like!

7. It is true that money won't buy EVERY election



By the same token, money won't buy EVERY straw poll.
