Listener comments!

  7:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, a nice relaxing 70s AC Nuclear War/Christmas standard after a long day at the office.
  7:05pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm ready for a lot of fun and excitement!
  7:05pm Matt from Springfield:

"American Song-Poem Christmas"...you can't EVER go wrong with song-poems. Ever.
  7:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, Carol harpistry!
  7:10pm Danne D:

Yes the Democrats are caucusing
  7:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Can one vote for Santorum in the caucuses by raising a pitcher of its namesake?
  7:14pm Danne D:

There are like 4 levels. They are picking the people that go to the county convention. Then like next month they'll have the county-level caucuses and they'll pick the next level etc. Basically they are picking the people who will pick the people who will pick the people who will pick the delegates
  7:14pm Matt from Springfield:

No mountain climbing in Iowa!
  7:14pm Danne D:

Anyway, make sure you check out c-span and see how informed these voters are...

Gnight all :)
  7:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Iowa? Pfft....who the heck comes from Iowa? Wait...what?
  7:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Already?! Oh well, g'night Danne! I'm sure to bump into you again soon! :)
  7:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of things that sound really weird when you hear them, I just found out that there was a 70s/80s appetite suppressant called "Ayds"--pronounced as the disease "AIDS"--sudden PR nightmare.
  7:18pm Deep South:

Iowa doesn't have a particularly good record of picking the eventual Republican nominee. South Carolina, on the other hand, has a perfect record since the Republican primary was first held in 1980.
  7:18pm Matt from Springfield:

  7:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I mentioned last week that I saw the new My Little Pony--not a fanatic about it yet but I admit it's an excellent children's show. I'm an ally of the Bronies now.
  7:19pm Chris:

Brony music: The Horse Song by Iggy Pop
  7:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Cartoon horse hygiene, at minimum.
  7:24pm kat330:

And those little bottles in the fridge will cost your mom bucco bucks.
  7:24pm Robert:

So what's a Brony, a Brooklyn pony or a Bronx pony?
  7:25pm Cliff:

Santorum is Catholic.
  7:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: A "Bro" who's into the new "My Little Pony" cartoon series. See show from Dec 6 for more.
  7:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Taking the dead baby home is, to me, comparable to having a home funeral; which as Jay said, is a healthy way to come to terms with death. But I heard that they had the kids touch the dead baby and stuff--that to me is more creepy.
(The good news--the young Santorums might grow up to mummify young female corpses they find in the cemeteries!)
  7:35pm Kat in Chicago:

I think Smirnoff makes the marshmallow and whipped cream vodkas.
  7:36pm Michael:

1.) The bringing the dead "baby" home story was meant to emphasise their strange belief that anything with 23 pairs of human chromosomes is a full human being.
2.) Until fairly recently---no more than a couple of hundred years, I think---Catholics had the courage of their convictions, or at least St Augustines, and understood that all unbaptised persons go to Hell forever---good news, though, since Augustine didn't necessarily believe that miscarriages have souls, he probably believed in ensoulment either at quickening or at birth.
  7:38pm yoman:

Matt: Regarding the Ayds reducing plan:

Why take diet pills when you can enjoy Ayds?
  7:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@yoman: Ha ha, that's the one!
They later tried to re-brand themselves as "Diet Ayds", but that just sounds like a no-calorie alternative disease.
  7:44pm Matt from Springfield:

  7:46pm Michael:

The acetiminophen really helps the codeine (or hydrocodone, which latter is much stronger) work longer because because it occupies a big chunk of your liver's attention for a few hours, leaving it with less ability to remove the opiate from your system.
  7:48pm Michael:

Carrie Nation.
  7:49pm Michael:

You'd get a really active dead mouse.
  7:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Deadmau5 Edition Dead Mou5 Mountain Dew!
  7:51pm Jim:

If you don't think drugs are good, you've never tried Dilaudid.
  7:55pm Matt from Springfield:

It's not a game--it's a magical "conceit". I didn't want to abandon the belief, though I knew rationally at a point there was no Santa. I like the spirit of the season and the fun the conceit of Santa Claus brings. Eventually my parents unilaterally stopped the game with me.
  7:55pm Silenth:

Jay can you believe that they let that sorcerer david blaine work his devil magic on t.v.
  7:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Damn! That is some fancy Sno-Cone machines!
  7:57pm Terrorist:

We shall give the infidels free sno cones tainted with poison, under the guise of giving an important talk on homeland security...
  7:59pm depressed Persian cab driver:

Wait a minute...
No Santa?
You need to read the back page of December's Draft Horse Journal.
The doubting must stop here.
Why invite the opposite of generosity and love?
You prefer Jihad?
Skeptical nastiness.
  7:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good night Thunkers!
  8:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Just getting a farewell in while you guys are still there!
  8:04pm Michael:

Four-Loko? You'd get a really active dead mouse.

Snowcones? New flavour: santorum.
