Okay, Who Leaked the Democratic Agenda to the Santorum Supporters?

posted by on October 24 at 8:54 AM

A supporter of Rick Santorum, interviewed by a reporter from the Toronto Star, makes a vewy scawy prediction about how things will change—basic cable, at least—if the Dems take power in November:

“I’m afraid of turning on the Health Channel on my TV and seeing an abortion of a child in its eighth month. Is that far-fetched? It might not be if the other side gets in.”

Oh, crap—they’re on to us! I was soooo looking forward to curling up in front of the TV and watching some late-term abortions with my kid if the Dems took control of the House and Senate! And now, thanks to some loose-lipped Democratic operative somewhere, my fondest hopes for the Health Channel may well have been dashed!

Who will break the news to Hillary?

You have got to be F-ing with me. It is troubling (to say the least) to think that these people believe this.

Seriously, WTF????????

people are stupid. don'ot count on people to be smart, especially when excercising their right to vote.

of course people eat this shit up. it's scary!

No, No, No! It's not the Health channel - our agenda is much too broad and deep for that.

The plan is to convert ABC from the American Broadcasting Company to the Abortion Broadcasting Company. And if you don't watch more than 14 hours a week, your taxes will go up, and at least one of your children will be recruited to the homosexual lifestyle.

Jeez, leave it to a Republican to get it all mixed up.

If they want to make this campaign about tv programming, bring it on.

Whew! Thank Allah that Rick didn't pick up on our "other" tv turn HBO into the "Homosexual Boning Office" channel. A 24hr gay sex channel that will replace local cable access channels. It will also be broadcast in every public and private school.

Now I trust that all of you dems will keep this secret for us.

On the plus side, when they set up those homosexual-agenda recruiting booths in the malls, they're going to be FABulously decorated.

Religious conservatism is a mental illness.

The homosexual-agenda recruiting booths are already in operation, Fnarf. We've disguised them, though, as Abercrombie & Fitch outlets.

Hopefully no one told them about Skinemax,...

Posted by seattl98104 | October 24, 2006 9:39 AM

Oh, yeah and don't forget about the extensive changes planned for "Spike" - although I hear they're keeping the name, since it will now be more descriptive.

The Food Channel, of course, will be devoted to Feeder/Gainer porn.

Comedy Central: Blue Collar Comedy cancelled, replaced by Witty Urbanites Dissing Rubes.

HGTV: A new series on building your dream home dungeon/playroom.

Bravo: Bravo just gets to keep being Bravo.

The Constitution clearly guarantees prime time fetal snuff film for ALL!

Posted by Lori | October 24, 2006 10:14 AM

The only people who are keen to watch abortions being performed are Christian conservatives, anyways.

Thanks, Dan, for putting me onto Feeder/Gainer porn. I wasn't, uh, hep to that scene until now. See? I've been recruited! Now I'm off to the store to buy some lard and ten cases of Mars Bars.

Santorum's lunacy is surpassed only by that of Katherine Harris (barely). How this medieval freak ever got elected in the first place is beyond me. If he gets beat by anything less than 20 points, I'm going to cry.

Fear! Fear! Fear!

Oh, wait, noone's scared of you Reds any more and your refusal to let America be strong and true to it's nature.

Real Americans refuse to live in Fear.

I dunno, but someone needs to tell Hillary to stop doing her Gallagher impression with a sledgehammer and pregnant women's stomachs before the GOP sees her.

Is this before or after the Coalition of Free* Peoples of Middle Earth draw the Eye of Al-Qaeda to the battle in Iragondor instead of the brave hobbitpublicans climbing Mount TerrorDoomFearScare?

*Free - some restrictions may apply. Void where prohibited.

Sanitorium (sic) needs to go away for a nice long hibernation.

If you are unaware, Santorum is a 15th level cleric of Jebus with a maximum charisma. He uses his magic powers to entice the masses. Its not medeival like SDA in SEA said, I would liken his followers more to a world of pure fantasy.

I hope they don't discover the plans for the terrorism reality show.

OMG, Joh, you just inspired this funny image of Foley doing his bloodninja impression on AIM with some page.

Foley would have had so much more luck if DND nerds were more interested in politics.
