Friday Open Thread [1.6.12]

The year is just flying by…

Our Daily GOP Laughathon Polling:

SOUTH CAROLINA (Rasmussen)–Mitt Romney 27%, Santorum 24%, Gingrich 18%, Paul 11%, Perry 5%, Huntsman 2%.

If Mitt Romney wins South Carolina, the race is over. But with Santorum’s near win (or actual win) in Iowa is filling his war chest, as his presidential campaign raised $2 million in the last 48 hours. So Santorum is going on air with a “major” ad buy in South Carolina ahead of the state’s January 21 primary.

NATIONAL (Gallup Tracking): Romney 27, Gingrich 19, Paul 13, Santorum 11, Perry 6, “Other” 6, Huntsman 2

NATIONAL (Rasmussen): Romney 29, Santorum 21, Gingrich 16, Paul 12, Huntsman 4, Perry 4

NATIONAL (YouGov): Romney 30, Gingrich 17, Paul 13, Perry 8, Santorum 8, Huntsman 5, Bachmann 2

NEW HAMPSHIRE (Suffolk Tracking): Romney 41, Paul 18, Santorum 8, Gingrich 7, Huntsman 7

NEW HAMPSHIRE (Washington Times/John Zogby Analytics): Romney 38, Paul 24, Santorum 11, Gingrich 9, Huntsman 8

Finally, and finally, an Obama conspiracy theory that makes sense:

Forget Kenya. Never mind the secret madrassas. The sinister, shocking truth about Barack Obama’s past lies not in east Africa, but in outer space. As a young man in the early 1980s, Obama was part of a secret CIA project to explore Mars. The future president teleported there, along with the future head of Darpa.

That’s the assertion, at least, of a pair of self-proclaimed time-traveling, universe-exploring government agents. Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings insist that they once served as “chrononauts” at Darpa’s behest, traversing the boundaries of time and space. They swear: A youthful Barack Obama was one of them.

That’s actually believable, relatively speaking.

    What the hell happened to the Mcdonald’s hamburger? I just had two cheeseburgers for lunch. I should have gotten four. They are like half the burger they where the last time I had one, which was about six months ago.

    Very understandable, as old as Obama looks now. Definitely has been in a time warp.

    And for today’s “duh” moment – Kristy McNichol has come out as a lesbian. Who didn’t realize this when she was on the show “Family?”

    Mike Brown is out of the race in Wilmington. Women at city hall remain at risk.
