If Newt is the Puke candidate this will be the nastiest election of my lifetime

I'm 25 and the pure hatred the far right oozed in 2008 is the worst I've seen in a presidential election in my lifetime. If Newt is the nominee it's going to be much worse than even 2008.

1. agreed-- Newt will turn the ugly up to eleven in the first ten minutes...

...and keep it there for as long as possible. That is one angry white man, dude.

2. But the GOP will die in the process.

It might hurt, but maybe this is simply a stone that we need to pass.

The crazy insane right wingers were underground for a while ... now they walk the earth like a zombie horde.

Newt was the demon spawn back in the 90s ... he's now the leader of the zombies ... We might never be rid of them with out a knock down drag out battle.

Perhaps we can send them back to hell where they belong.

3. I am well over twice your age,

and this will be the nastiest election of my lifetime if Newt is the candidate. And maybe even if he isn't, since the Citizens United ruling made it possible to turn the hate up to infinity.

4. Someone should bring up how upset Obama was when at the Congressional Black Caucus women kept

coming on to him. Shows him to be a very decent chap.

7. I don't see how it could be any worse than 2000

2000 was a textbook example of a "nasty election"
