Lost in the Perry gaffe is the actual content of his proposal--eliminating the commerce department--is this something people really want? Two of bureaus in the commerce department are in fact Constitutional obligations of the government---the Census Bureau and the Patent Office. It seems to me that we will also still need economic statistics, and the National Institute of Standards is a useful thing to have. Unless we want people deciding a pound is 15 oz or something like that. I know conservatives hate the NOAA, but I suspect most Americans want to keep that around as well. So what would eliminating this department do?

I know there's been a lot of bickering about NOAA, and on the surface most of it seems good. Most private forecast companies cover 3 or 4 times the area 1 single NOAA office covers, but those companies aren't producing ground-breaking research papers in weather modeling/forecasting. At my old job, there was 1 guy who would constantly complain that he was doing 3 or 4 times the work that a NOAA forecaster was doing, but that's just looking at half of their job, really.

Aren't they supplying all the satellite data and the sending out the hurricane hunting aircraft and such?

All satellite, RADAR, and most credible surface and upper air observational data is through NOAA. They also run and maintain 2 operational weather models, which pretty much every operational meteorologist world wide uses to forecast. Losing any funding from those areas would be devastating to the meteorology community. If anything, they're likely to cut forecasters and forecast offices, which would leave a lot less time for forecast-related research.

I know Santorum is big on this, but that's more likely because him and the owner of AccuWeather are kind of in bed together.

He listed a bunch of things like cyber attacks, killing scientist etc and then goes they all are 'Deniable.'

Well Newt, its going to be a lot harder to deny when you broadcast that on national tv.

So Bachmann, Perry and Cain all have said that God told them to run for president.

The only thing funnier than this being false is it being true. I imagine God sitting there with His buddies, drinking beers and laughing their cosmic tails off at how they're jerking these dopes around.

shouldn't this alone be enough to give the evangelicals the fantods?

I mean God wouldn't play tic-tac-toe with the nation He in his wisdom and love created, would he?

These three live in a bizarre sub-society, in which saying God personally selected you to be the next President is seen as showing humility. Wouldn't want to show your ego and say that you decided on your own. Then, there is the "I really, really want to run, but I'm going to let my family have the final decision" line. Hey folks, we all know that you have to be an egomaniac, willing to sell your soul to the devils in the primary-voting base to get the nomination. If you're willing to totally debase yourself and pretend to believe things that you don't believe, at least have the guts to admit that YOU crave the Presidency, or at least a prime-time show on FOX.

Just because there's a voice in their heads telling them to do stuff, doesn't mean that voice is God.

Here's a little quiz. What does the following define: egocentricity, deceptiveness, lack of empathy, lack of remorse
(A) politician
(B) psychopath
(C) :shock:
(D) :mrgreen:

People drawn to politics generally have some degree of narcissism and psychopathy... an excessively high opinion of themselves, egocentricity, deceptiveness, lack of empathy (no problem using other people for their own purpose), lack of remorse. Politics is a natural attraction for the narcissist-psychopath. It's why a high disproportionate of politicians are unfaithful to spouses, etc.
