What a choice... Personal suicide or national suicide.

I looked all over but I didn't see The Onion mentioned anywhere. I guess that even they couldn't imagine anything this bizarre.

Suicide over a choice between plutocrat v. theocrat? I can see how that would get to people.

I think this would make a good study for the next Ignoble Awards: Do those who commit suicide to avoid a poor election choice go to Heaven, Hell or Kolob?

I feel their pain, believe me. Cheers from Texas, where Rick Perry is holding all of us hostage to his family's investments.

Pig A or Pig B, take your pick. Get ready for some pain if one of these beauties gets into office.

I would have thought that, being America, they would choose homicide...

I was under the impression that the Republican candidate had already been selected: Obama.

Let's just hope that they keep applying their wooish wishful thinking to their campaigns, and reality makes the decisions for them, while they rely on help from"god" to fix their campaign inadequacies for them !!

So... it's meant to be funny because people don't like Republicans? I guess..?

I'd rather see a jokey article commenting on the fact that politics in America is shot through with money and big business actually runs the place. That would get a half-smile.

The Daily Beast asked readers to describe each of the Republican candidates in one word and then produced word clouds based on the results. The results are very enjoyable.

No. They are forced to go to Sunday School next time around.

The antics of these clowns serve as great advertisements for the Reason Rally on March 24. Here's hoping that our secular movement expands to include the many women's groups that are negatively impacted by theocratic denials of freedom.

The decision comes down to this:

Pick the rich guy who says he's just like you, sympathizes with the poor, understands what they are going through, and is a logical thinking mormon..

or

The crazy, far right guy who says satan is here and religion is under attack by people with a college education because they can think on their own...

Hmmmm, thats a tough one.

@ wake_Up

The numbers don't lie, Santorum says 62% of people who go to college loose their religion, pity after 3 degrees he was too stupid.

Suicide ain't the answer, but starting a whole new country might be an idea. Failing that I'll go with my old joke and be the first white aborigine in the Australian Outback. :P
