It shouldn’t be too surprising by now to learn that “Jeopardy” has been dabbling in politics for a while: just check out categories like “That’s what Ché said.” Tonight, the game show dipped deep into 2012 to rehash the Mitt Romney statement that launched a thousand cheap Halloween costumes.

A prescient John Ekdahl has the category we’d really like to see.

    What about a “War on Women” category…oh wait…that was a red herring

    • tops116

      “I’ll take ‘What the Left says about Sarah Palin’ for $500, Alex.”
      “That’s not a category.”
      “Exactly.”

  • D.C. Lundberg

    This episode was a rerun from last February. (“Jeopardy!” replays all of their tournaments over the summer.)

    Over the last several years, they have become hopelessly and overtly far left. Whenever they have political material, it is usually favorable to liberals and/or demeaning to conservatives. It’s ludicrous.

    • aztectrumpet

      thanks. I could i have sworn they had this before.

  • CR

    Will there be a “Foreign Policy Made Through Accidental Gaffs and Pulling Cr*p Out of Our Butts” category in honor of Obama and Kerry? Seems only fair.

    • MNWoman

      It wouldn’t fit into the little box, but it is certainly catchy 😉

      Perhaps “voter remorse” category?

      • bungopony

        It’s “Jeopardy’-the category’ll be,”Even their mistakes are brilliant”

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

    How soon before a “Who Is Ben Ghazi?” category?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      About as soon as they have “Democrats Who “Rape” Rape Women” or “Massachusetts Politicians Who Kill Women in Cars.” categories.

  • el_polacko

    put down the torches and pitchforks…it was a rerun.

  • Jeremy

    Yeah it’s a rerun but,still stupid.

    • Damien Johnson

      Yeah my first thought was this had to be a rerun.

  • Jeremy
    • Lady 12

      Hahahahaha!

  • traffic_robot

    I’ll take “Being a perpetual victim” for $100, Alex?

  • tops116

    I’ll take “Administrations that pay female staffers less than male staffers” for $500, Alex.

    • MNWoman

      Well, that’s clearly racist or something.

  • MNWoman

    Apparently a #RomneyWasRight category would be too much to ask for.

    (I do not have a twitter account, but I have posted this earlier today in a different thread, but it was suggested this become a new hashtag in hopes of getting it trending)

  • Maxx

    I’d rather have “binders full of women” than Obama’s “staff full of blinders.”

    • J. Cox

      You forgot your usual RACISTTTTT rant along with the rest of the idiocy you just posted.
      What is stupid troll mikey for 1000

    • LochGates44

      Looks like your in the negative once again Mikey. Sorry, but you can’t participate in Final Jeopardy.

  • AudreyPH

    I’ll take “Stuff That Would Have Been Completely Ignored If Obama Had Said The Exact Same Thing, Alex.”

    • Damien Johnson

      That is pretty true. “Binders full of women” was a dumb thing to say, but it was dumb in a different category-social. Obama’s 57 states remark was dumb in the knowledge you need to know if you’re going to be the president category, but that just got defended to death.

  • ICOYAR

    I still think it’s pathetic that Leftists all think that Romney hates women when he hired them left to right, while Obummer only has it in for Hillary and Pelosi.

  • TheOriginalDonald

    pretty soon Jeff Probst will be running the show based on Ryan Seacrest’s poor performance on the Million $ ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ……………….

  • Michael Hampton

    Um…he said it. Why are you upset? Because the republican candidates were so horrible this year that you practically handed the presidency back to Obama on a plate? We can’t help that.

    • MrSnuggles2k2

      You will really enjoy the police state dictatorship we are about to usher in, I’ll bet.

      Unfortunately for you, you will not be spared from it, you will be victimized just like everyone that did not vote for the fool implementing it.

      • Michael Hampton

        Honey, your tinfoil hat is showing.

  • Farmer_Joe

    I still don’t understand why this is an issue. Yeah, he probably should have said, “Binders full of women’s resumes,” but really – what’s the issue? I still don’t understand.
