    "Amazingly some conservatives think Rubio liking rap music matters. No wonder we have trouble winning "

    Let me help you there Hermy:

    "Amazingly the MSM thinks Rubio liking rap music matters. No wonder the GOP still does as well as it does and hasn't completely died off yet."

    Just how stupid does the GOP think we are? They're on TV everyday talking about how out of touch they are with average, everday Americans. So now they're willing to say and do anything to make themselves look less bigotted and hateful.

    The real problem, of course, with Hermy's quote is his use of the term "conseravtive": he and the rest of you TeaParty troglodites wouldn't know a true cponservative if one shat on your empty heads.

    What is amazing is that Obama and the looney Democrats think that taxing the rich another $80 billion a year is any sort of remedy for ANYTHING. It will pay for the government for roughly 8 days. But the Democrats know nothing supporters are very easily duped. That is why they are Democrats.

    Where is the other $920 billion they need to balance the budget going to come from?!! First Answer: YOU! Second answer: CHINA!! Third Answer: Your kids, grand kids, great grand kids.

    Wake up young idiots. The cost of your free cell phones is your future. Surely you cannnot be so blind and stupid to not see this?!

    What is even more amazing is that Cain still thinks that he still could have won.

    @Kayla. Exactly, nothing but a crab in a bucket.

    Herman sit down and shut up and get this straight. YOU NEVER HAD A CHANCE. NEVER. YOU WERE USED TO TRY AND GET SOME VOTES FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA. When that didn't work as well as they thought it would, YOUR OWN PARTY DESTROYED YOU.

    You thought they hated President Obama, well they do and he only came out of a white female, you on the other hand were doing the opposite. Idiot.

    Senator Rubio – be careful, sir.
    You should only list country music, fishing, hunting and NASCAR as your favorite activities, or some of the clowns on the far right are going to attack you.

    Tommy G.: love the off-topic comment, so full of uberpartisan angst and fantasy. I'm sure the 1% do appreciate that you rightwing lemmings are out here fighting for THEIR tax breaks, even if you are embarrassing yourselves with your obvious disconnect from reality.

    YOU are the very reason that the [R] party lost this past election. That you keep blathering on about the inaccruate fairytales that are fed to you by your media lords on FuksNews indicates that you will not recover before the next election. I celebrate the fact the [R]s are so abysmally stupid.

    Do you wish to get back on topic now?

    Oh Tommy G! How many jobs did the Bush tax cuts create precisely? How was the Iraq and Afghanistan war paid for? Who paid for that Medicare Prescription Drug Plan? Who passed the Troubled Asset Relief Program? Take your factless rhetoric to Fox News.

    I think Big Daddy Cain is just mad that Rubio knows more about rap than he does.

    Herman's Head speaks, live from inside right wing media's hamster cage, which almost no conservatives can conceive of yet, much less see.
