Given the topics that drew the most enthisiastic TeaPartisan responses at previous Republican presidential primary debates - pick which subject will really light their fire tonight;

Drowning kittens
Nuking Iran
Nuking kittens in Iran
Nuking Chicago
Nuking anybody
Taking candy from babies
Waterboarding union leaders
Dueling Chris Matthews
Shooting a friend in the face
Shooting Warren Buffet anywhere
Shooting
Privatizing street lights
Privatizing capital punishment

Or, an alternate pool for how many times 'Reagan' will be said;

1
1000
10,000
100,000
122,000

Plus, everyone has to take a shot every time the phrase 'tax cut' is said. (or deregulate in any conjugation)

Obviously, you didn't introduce this thread to create any intelligent discussion so I wonder at your point.

Well, I suppose that you're right.  I completely left out the one thing the Party actually does pursue in legislation -- forcing rape victims to carry pregnancies to term.  It does fit with the whole dominionist-sadism motif though... eh?

(p.s.  I've yet to see one Tea Partisan worthy of invoking Ronald Reagan -- whom, were he alive and governing, they would declare a socialist and primary his butt.)

Guess I also forgot to include the homophobic option

quote:


A gay soldier's question about the end of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy elicited boos from the audience at Thursday night's Republican candidate debate, and a promise from Rick Santorum to reinstate the policy if elected.

In a video submission, Stephen Hill told the Republican presidential candidates that he "had to lie about who he was" when he was deployed to Iraq in 2010 because of his sexual orientation, and his fear that he would "lose my job."

"My question is, under one of your presidencies, do you intend to circumvent the progress that's been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?" Hill asked.

Loud jeers were heard immediately from the Orlando, Fla., crowd, marking the third straight debate when the audience's reaction overshadowed the candidate's.

That reaction was not immediately acknowledged by the Fox News Channel moderators, as NBC's Brian Williams did in the Reagan Presidential Library debate when the crowd applauded the number of executions in Texas under Rick Perry.

In last week's CNN "tea party" debate, some in the audience supported the notion that a sick person should be allowed to die if he or she had no healthcare.

Answering Hill, Santorum said that "sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military," and said the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which took effect this week, was injecting "social policy into the military."

Of course Santorum is ironically completely backwards on what policy constitutes 'social engineering'.
