NEWS: Santorum Surges, Kids Come Out, And Aliens Get Jiggy In Nevada

Road The Santorum Surge:

“People say, well, when are you gonna get your surge?” says Santorum. (Some of the “people” are the reporters in the back of the room; some are the Iowa conservatives who keep doubting him.) “Everybody in this race has had their surge, and their bump. Why haven’t you had it? I say, I’m gonna get mine the old fashioned way. Actual people who know the candidates coming on board and helping us. Not some media creation. Not some clever line. But actually folks who are taking their time to look at the records, to look at the vision, to look at the character, to look at the courage.”

Santorum has been saying this all year. It stopped sounding ridiculous on Wednesday.

Road Entrepreneur to rebrand brothel as "Area 51 Travel Center," Nevada's one-stop shop for sci-fi sex:

Hof describes the current state of the bordello as a “disgusting, terrible place” without a single window. The partners are hoping to finish a complete conversion inside of a couple of months, before beaming in customers.

The important details regarding the working women are still being hashed out, such as whether or not to paint the women green to resemble Orion Slave Girl characters from Star Trek.

However Hof tells CBS Las Vegas that for the clients he is reaching out “to everyone, all the Star Wars fans and Trekkies,” and cater to all flavors of geek fantasy.

Hof also hopes to collaborate with science fiction icons such as William Shatner – known better to his prospective clients as “Captain Kirk.”

Road China to land astronaut on the moon:

While Chinese scientists have previously discussed the possibility of a manned lunar mission, a government white paper published on Thursday is the first public government document to enshrine it as a policy goal.

China will “conduct studies on the preliminary plan for a human lunar landing”, the white paper said.

Although a manned moon mission is still some time off – Chinese experts say after 2020 – the statement highlights Beijing’s soaring ambitions just five months after the US retired its space shuttle programme . “Chinese people are the same as people around the world,” Zhang Wei, an official with China’s National Space Administration, said at a briefing. “When looking up at the starry sky, we are full of longing and yearning for the vast universe.”

  1. Don't tell me you are going to start posting Rasmussen polls. Why don't you just ask Fox News.

  2. oh no! A rasmussen poll shows a Republican beating a Democrat! next your going to tell me Fox isn't really 'fair and balanced'.

  3. Of course, I would love to see Hillary as running mate. Switching jobs with Biden would be perfect for both. However, I do not believe she would accept, as the word is she is quietly planning her own presidential run in 2016 and would not want to be saddled with a loser if Obama goes down.

  4. The Santorum Surge? Is that a sex thing? Like an orgasm or something? Is that his "surge face?"

  6. Santorum is a bible believer. He believes in Noahs ark. Do you want a president who believes that pairs of all life on the planet boarded an ark? What fantasy.As a catholic he also believes in transubstantion. That is when the priest says "Hoc est enim corpus meum" And a piece of bread becomes the creator of the universe. Oh yea, thats what they believe. And you thought the Mormons were nutty.

  9. LOL, Robert Reich, LOL. He's still mad Romney beat him in 2002

    Posted by: Name: | Dec 30, 2011 7:38:42 AM

  10. Rasmussen has Obama's approval rating at 45% and gallup has him at his new low of 41%. He can also hope Romney decides to drop out.

  11. Please never put Santorum and surge in the same headline again. I feel ill.

    Hillary might do it. Of COURSE she plans to run in 2016---though she'l be older than she'd like--but Biden has been the most invisible VP since Bush 1 in 1980-84. She's a superstar. Frankly, Obama would be an idiot not to ask her. And there is a bit of precedent to VPs becoming president (unless the Supreme Court decide they didn't win...).

  12. I wish people would stop using Santorum and surge in the same sentence ...

    Posted by: Michael R | Dec 30, 2011 8:41:37 AM

  13. Jiggy is slang for stylish, not sex. Even in that dumb Will Smith song it's referring to clothes/style.

  14. TYN: Good to know. Thanks. - BKT

  15. Remains revolting. But I don't blame BKT.

  16. Um...typo Brandon - the coming out stories are on Salon.com, not CNN...(:
