Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ken), scion of presidential hopeful and idealistic college student darling, Ron Paul, was quoted as saying that he didn't think President Obama's views on same-sex marriage "could get any gayer."

Paul said this during an event sponsored by Iowa's Faith and Freedom Collation to laughs, because nothing says "freedom" in America than to smack talk someone's opinion about gay marriage.

In a swipe at President Obama's 2008 campaign slogan, "Hope & Change," the GOP is rolling out today new messaging -- Hype & Blame -- that accuses Obama of breaking promises to the American people during his first term in the White House.

Kirsten Kukowski, with the Republican National Committee:

"Obama has no record to run on so he's out on the trail resorting to the same tactics he campaigned against in 2008. He has a litany of broken promises so what does he do? Lay blame, make excuses, run on gimmicks and engage in divisive politics. Four years later we know the candidate of Hope and Change is now Hype and Blame."

The bumper sticker can be yours for $10.

Newt Gingrich's financially unstable bid for the presidency will finally have its long awaited death on Tuesday, according to several reports. Gingrich's campaign has had its fair share of financial trouble. Gingrich came into a particularly ugly (re: sad) final attempt to stomp for delegates during the Delaware primary last week. It's unsure whether Gingrich can afford a trumpet player to play "Taps" in honor of his dead attempt to be president.

Republican legislator Rep. Virginia Foxx (NC), cares nothing for your student loans because you don't need to borrow money for higher education. To wit (from Foxx herself): "I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there's no reason for that. We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that."

So if we've learned anything from Republicans this election year, it's [insert controversial statement about birth control here] and they don't want to pay for your education, so get a job and pay for it yourself.
