Sunday Comic: Romney, Santorum and Obama Get Their Irish Up

The campaign trail turned green on St. Patrick's Day Weekend.

Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul dressed up as leprechauns, because nobody believes in leprechauns.

I am hoping that Bob's comment was in jest.

Obama has WAY more money in his campaign war chest (what was it, a BILLION dollars last time around?), so Romney is not the "moneybags" out of the three. Obama is. Santorum hasn't shown a problem with kissing in public, as long as it doesn't get gross and/or gay! And we ALL know that Irishmen don't switch hit, right?LOL Finally, we have Obama showing he doesn't care about gas prices (other than wanting them to go throught the roof so that his "alternative" energy campaign bundlers can have a shot at being competitive, and getting rich through DOE loans on which they default), and getting the hare brained idea that generating energy through potatoes and beer is a sane idea. Actually, you CAN generate electricity from any acidic produce like a tater and burning alcohol (beer), but it will never be economically conpetitive and massive government subsidies would be required to subsidize "tater generation". It's just the kind of crazy, infeasible, and dysfunctional idea for which Obama has become famous (infamous?)!LOL

You "love" me?! Good grief, you don't even know me!! I didn't know one couldn't cuss here. Despite my education and advanced vocabulary, I have trouble expressing myself without doing so. Mucho apologentsia.

I think I speak for Lorraine and all the other Patch editors when I say we are deeply in love with all our readers. Deeply indeed.

Bob, Santorum's frame is not speaking about being gay, it is satirically referencing how strict he feels Americans should behave, especially since he is Catholic, as are many Irish people. He is on record about being against public displays of affection from people not related or married, especially younger people. That isn't a stereotype, it's actually not far from the solid truth, let alone satire. Romney has FAR more personal wealth than the president, or anybody else, running for the office at all. He made more last year than the rest of the remaining candidates TOTAL wealth combined. So you either accidently OR NOT, mistook or misdirected the intention of the Romney panel. The president's panel is making fun of the fact that he seems willing to back every form of alternative fuel possible. Even for people that agree with him, it's funny because it is an extreme concept to think of beer and potatoes as a viable energy policy. The thing about it is this: when you said it was "Poorly drawn, weak (and incorrect) stereotypes (except for Obama, of course!). Sounds like someone who should be drwang a paycheck from the Patch!LOL", you did three things. One, you insulted Patch, for no good reason. Two, you made people wonder how President Obama's 'stereotype' was the only one well drawn and correct (still unanswered). Last, you mocked the quality whilst exhibiting NONE in your own writing. Well done, Bob. By YOUR standards, Patch should hire YOU. As if they would.
