the God Pick up for grabs.

Rick Santorum is ginning up for the anti-Romney slot.

“He said, ‘We don’t need a Jesus candidate. We need an economic candidate,’ ” Santorum recalled later, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire. “And my answer to that was, ‘We always need a Jesus candidate, right?’ “ […]

Though there’s apparently some inevitability from the “Team Jesus” contingency.  That they’re just tossing their splot for Jesus as a fling.

The mission of this “emergency meeting” is to unite behind one true-blue religious conservative for the Republican nomination. Fischer says evangelicals are desperate to defeat President Obama. But he does not believe former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — whom they distrust on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage — can generate the passion to do that.

And yet, Land says: “Before we marry the guy next door, don’t you think we ought to have a fling with a tall dark stranger and see if he can support us in the manner to which we’d like to be accustomed? And if he can’t, we can always marry the steady beau who lives next door.”

Huh.  Yes.  I just gnabbed this from the Stephen Colbert Show.

I guess Team Jesus is now dividing themselves over Gingrich and Santorum, in their bid to fend off Romney.  And what’s left is a desperate Perry taking this tact to appeal to this voting bloc.

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry on Sunday accused the Obamaadministration of “over-the-top rhetoric” and “disdain for the military” in its condemnation of a video that purportedly shows four Marines urinating on corpses in Afghanistan. […]
Perry said the Marines involved should be reprimanded but not prosecuted on criminal charges.
“Obviously, 18-, 19-year-old kids make stupid mistakes all too often. And that’s what’s occurred here,” Perry told CNN’s State of the Union.

Mitt Romney is, of course, going to have a double hard time with evangelical voters due to not only his Mormon religion, but his Scientology-related reading taste.

And one more thought: In 1992– when Jerry Brown playing the role of Ron Paul in 2012, I guess… Eugene McCarthy won a heaping healthy slice of the Florida primary vote, and thus ended up in a Democratic Party debate, where he… well… entertained himself by doodling and declaring a War on President Bush’s syntax, with Clinton and Brown diverting their eyes as much as they could.  We can hope Stephen Colbert does… something… in a Republican Primary.
