This November, all eyes will be focused on the Senate. The Republicans only need to win six seats to take control from the Democratic majority, one of which happens to be in my beautiful home state of Iowa. Unfortunately, the Iowa race also features one of the nation’s most insane candidates: Republican Joni Ernst.
As part of their voter outreach program, the Republican Party unveiled their latest mascot in a series of commercials last week. Meet Scott Greenberg. It’s nice to see the GOP finally focusing on the one demographic they consistently overlook, the heterosexual white male.
Former GOP presidential hopeful and Libya strategist Herman Cain has come to the realization that the Republican Party may have an issue with race. It wasn’t the series of voting restrictions targeting minorities or the recent tweet from the RNC that declared racism over that bothered Cain, it was the omission of his name on a flier for potential 2016 presidential candidates.
No surprise here, but I love discussing politics. This election season has led to some of the most interesting, and at times insane, debates I’ve ever partaken in.
Thanks to the craziness of the modern-day GOP, this is a year that has seen candidates share a Republican primary debate stage who:
- Have claimed Disney’s The Lion King is gay propaganda
- Proudly displayed their lack of knowledge on foreign leaders
- Referred to one of our nation’s allies as “Islamic terrorists”
- Do not believe in evolution
- Warned us of the “dangers of contraception”
- Claimed Satan is attacking America
- Wondered why airplane windows don’t open
You cannot make this shit up.
If you are participating in not only your final debate of a general election but the final debate of your career, you want to go out on top. President Barack Obama did just that.
Who does Mitt Romney think he is? Seriously, who is he? Is he the ultra conservative presented to us during the primaries? The conservative moderate during the last debate, or the liberal conservative that participated in an interview with the Des Moines Register earlier this week?
