It seems that people are pretty divided on Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, but at least there's one person who might not get a chance at the White House.
According to a new national poll done by ABC News and the Washington Post,
SNL is back!!
SNL is always fabulous during times of political turmoil — and last night was no exception!
This one (above) called Either The 7th or 8th GOP Debate, is HIGHlarious!
After introducing the candidates — Mitt Romney (Jason Sudeikis) and Rick Perry (host Alec Baldwin) — the moderator Shepard Smith (Bill Hader) pretty much ignores the other "six people who will never be president but showed up anyway." LOL!
We had a hunch that this season of Saturday Night Live was going to be great.
If their premiere episode is any indication, we were totes right!!
Rick Perry's Co-Chair Says Natural Disasters Are God's Punishment For
Loving One Another Accepting The LGBT Community!
These people have really lost their marbles, haven't they!?!
The person you see in the video above is Pam Olsen, the newly-named co-chair of Rick Perry's Florida Presidency 5 campaign.
LOLz! As he should!
Hustler's Larry Flynt is gunning for GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry by offering $1 million to anyone who can prove they've had an illicit sexual encounter with him.
Larry took out an ad in several newspapers, getting straight to the question, asking:
Rick Perry wants to treat the public university system in Texas like a business.
You know, rank professors on how profitable they are to the school, give out bonuses based on anonymous student evaluations. Treat students like "customers." That kind of thing.
Doesn't sound great, right? Especially when tuition inflation is basically out of control. So why does he want to do things like this? Why the deep seeded hostility for good teachers that could get ruined by obnoxious students who decided to slack in class and do evaluations based on their earned grades?
Probably because he wasn't the best student either. Or a very good student. Actually, he
Tuesday night at 6:22pm, Steven Michael Woods was executed for a murder he did not commit.
Bethena Brosz and Ronald Whitehead were shot and stabbed to death by Marcus Rhodes.
Unfortunately for Woods, Texan law allows the execution of those involved with the murder scene despite the degree of participation.
While Woods admitted to hanging out with the couple and witnessing the murder, he insisted he never had any part of it. Instead, it was act he claimed to be solely that of Rhodes.
And Rhodes confessed! Not only that, but DNA testing supported the confession. Still, Woods was convicted for his "involvement" (wherever the truth may lie in that).
Right before his death, Woods had some final words:
You're not about to witness an execution. You are about to witness a murder. I am strapped down for something Marcus Rhodes did. I never killed nobody, ever. Justice has let me down. Somebody completely screwed this up. Well, Warden, if you're going to murder someone, go ahead and do it. Pull that trigger.
We did some more research and while it doesn't seem like Woods was by any means squeaky clean (he was involved with drug dealings as a teenager, around the same time of the crime committed), it still doesn't seem justifiable to execute a man, especially for a specific act if there's no blood on his hands.
When attempting to justify the law, Houston Victims-Rights Advocate Dudley Sharp compared it to winning the Nobel Peace Prize:
We hold people responsible for being conspirators or assisting even in good acts. We are not treating murderers any different than we would by giving a Nobel Prize to someone who began research 40 years ago even though they didn't make the breakthrough.
Umm, sorry, but we don't think anyone supporting an eye for an eye can talk about Nobel Peace Prizes…
