What the fuck. Why is this man still in the running. WHY.
phoenixblaze 30th-Mar-2012 06:59 am (UTC)
I just, what is this? Every time I think it couldn't possibly be worse or more insane I'm proven wrong the same day.

I'm honestly thinking of getting into politics. There's no way I could be worse and more offensive than these guys.

Oh wait. People are going to think my vagina will get in the way. My bad.

I literally ran here from Tumblr when I saw this. When I read the caption, I couldn't believe it. I thought the video must have been a parody, or that somebody subbed over him, but when I played it, I was surprised to hear his voice saying it. I'm not surprised he said it, no. I'm not naive. I just couldn't believe that he wanted to forfeit his campaign so early. He seemed to be enjoying himself.

But no, I'm not surprised. This word has been poised on his lips for months. He's gotten a chance to say horrible and despicable things about the LGBT community, wants to control women, thinks Puerto Ricans should learn english, and already said that black people were abusing the welfare system. He's been dying to say it so much in public. I bet he even purposefully slipped up, so that his constituents could know exactly how he feels about having a Black man in office. And I bet he calls Obama the n-word over and over again until he turns blue in the face behind closed doors and with Republican friends and relatives. I just know it.

Ugh, trashy. I really do hope the GOP tries to distance themselves away from him. He's had too many slip ups. Everybody knows they like their racism disguised and sugarcoated.

Quite apt.

I saw the cut version that was linked to and literally gasped.

Wow. I can't even. :/

I wish this would be the nail in his campaign coffin but it won't. His supporters will probably like him more for it
rosephile 30th-Mar-2012 11:38 pm (UTC)
Yep. The GOP is all about taking the "PC"ness and shame out of being a dick and turning it into a source of pride.

So I just plugged my headphones in to turn the volume up even higher, and welp... SRY2SAY people who are arguing that he totally was saying the word "negotiator"- YEAH. NO. His pronunciation of the 2nd letter after the letter 'n' was clearly for the letter 'i' followed by 'g', and he wouldn't have stuttered and sounded like he was catching himself.


And here's a catchy little number from Ratigan:

kelixo 30th-Mar-2012 07:12 am (UTC)
Exactly. And I don't really think that anti-government negotiator would even make sense in the sentence he was trying to say.

angry_chick 30th-Mar-2012 07:14 am (UTC)
I fucking love that comment.
evilgmbethy 30th-Mar-2012 07:14 am (UTC)
so it is amazing to me that people can make it as far in the political system as Santorum is and fuck up in such a monumentally stupid way. Like I continue to be in awe of how low-rent, low-sense candidates make it to the national stage.

anyway, I'm sure the folks at Fox & Friends will be all over themselves defending this. -_-
angry_chick 30th-Mar-2012 07:15 am (UTC)
Just as the Trayvon Martin deal is going on, and their ratings just tanked, this shit is going to get really bad for them.
bmh4d0k3n 30th-Mar-2012 07:21 am (UTC)
If there's the remotest possibility he was actually trying to say something else, he'll fuck up the follow-up so spectacularly ...

And, I can't with this one guy on fb:

-_- he wasn't going to call Obama the n word. Overreaction. Even Santorum wouldn't be that stupid...come on.

I said:

What was he going to say, then? Some people are saying "negotiator," but ... that's not what it sounds like, especially with how abruptly he stopped right in the middle of the word. I know as white people we want to make every excuse for others, thinking they can't POSSIBLY be that racist, but, if the news in the last week has been any indication, they CAN.

And then he replied:

Come on...this is what the media is doing to your mind. Any number of words that started with n-i-g that are stopped in the middle of the word can sound like that. And then everyone assumes it. Not every speech slip up from a white person means he was catching himself from revealing to the whole world that he's a neonazi racist...

Excuse me while I bang my head against the nearest hard surface.
mskye 30th-Mar-2012 07:23 am (UTC)
Obviously he meant to say "nagger." Freudian slip.

I am just dreaming that in 2012 the GOP might actually nominate someone who almost lets the n-word slip in reference to the president, right?
babysinclair 30th-Mar-2012 07:25 am (UTC)
I almost don't want to sleep to watch this campaign burn all morning.
bmh4d0k3n 30th-Mar-2012 07:28 am (UTC)
Ikr? Dammit, why did this story have to break now ...
homasse 30th-Mar-2012 07:32 am (UTC)
Y'know, I just figured out why I'm not even mad at this.

I just can not be surprised at all that someone who hates gays and women as much as Santorum would also pull a Bigot Hat Trick and also hate POC (Black in particular), too. Hating everyone not straight, white, and cis-male is pretty par for the course for this dude.

So I ain't mad, I'm just shocked he actually said it publicly - not that he would say it at all.

So all I can say is, "LOL, BYE" as his campaign implodes.
angry_chick 30th-Mar-2012 07:35 am (UTC)
I'm not really angry, because I think this shit is hella funny. I am 0% shocked and wondered when someone was going to pull out the 'N-bomb' in regards to Obama.

I'll start getting pissed when candidates start slinging mud at the girls.

Did this happen today?
bmh4d0k3n 30th-Mar-2012 08:03 am (UTC)
He gave the speech on Tuesday.
kerrence 30th-Mar-2012 07:45 am (UTC)
I'm trying so hard to think of a word, ANY WORD, that he could have been trying to say other than that one.

And coming up with nothing. I just... holy shit I grew up sheltered on top of my privilege. I knew things were awful but I never quite realized HOW awful. This is not okay, and more and more people need to stand up and realize how NOT FUCKING OKAY this is.
babysinclair 30th-Mar-2012 07:49 am (UTC)

GIVE ME THE N WORD FALL OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
mingemonster 30th-Mar-2012 07:50 am (UTC)
even if he was trying to say "negotiator" or whatever, why would he have stopped himself so suddenly, before looking scared and making no sense at all

bitchsdangerous 30th-Mar-2012 07:52 am (UTC)
Not a peep about it on MSNBC or CNN yet (websites either). Damn, they BETTER cover it and I don't want to sleep for fear of missing seeing his campaign implode.
babysinclair 30th-Mar-2012 07:54 am (UTC)
Google news just brings up him and jellybeans in the last hour
