Newt Gingrich probably
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

"Americans are better off in a dynamic, free-enterprise-based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity and upward mobility." - Paul Ryan

They're an appalling lot, for multiple reasons (their intellectual mediocrity, their espousal of a thoroughly uncompassionate ideology, their divisive demagoguery and pandering to partisan spirit [indeed, conservative politicos are grand masters of divisive demagoguery and they have the unmitigated chutzpah to cry "You're promoting class warfare" every time a social justice-oriented progressive criticizes the capitalist elite!], their crypto-racism, etc.), I would be hard pressed to say which one I personally find to be the most thoroughly unsavory. Perhaps ole sanctimonious Rick Santorum.
Yo, all of my subliterate conservative criticasters who find perusing and processing the sesquipedalian verbiage of my posts to be such a bothersome brain-taxing chore, I have a new nickname for you. Henceforth you shall be known as Pooh Bears. No, not for the obvious apt reasons, i.e., not because you're full of pooh, and not because of your ursine irritability. Rather, you put me in mind of an A.A. Milne quote, "I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me". Love ya, Pooh Bears.

How has anyone voted anybody but Santorum? Unless you're an idiot and support him, that should be the choice.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown

There is so much to hate in all three of them, but I guess I'd have to go with Santorum.

Who's the "three of them"? You are missing one. Which one? I'm guessing since you are not a fan of constant warfare that you have excluded Ron Paul.

Ron Paul stands above them, that goes without saying.
