Rick Santorum’s Worry Record on Same-Sex Marriage

In 2015, Rick Santorum is running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.

Senator Rick Santorum, Not Exactly Leaving Science to the Scientists

Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum, 2015, on how religious people worried about global warming should shut up and “leave science to the scientists”:

“The church has gotten it wrong a few times on science, and I think that we probably are better off leaving science to the scientists… When we get involved with political and controversial […]

NRA Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Being Sauron

Not one of the Republican presidential candidates at the event had the decency to stand up and say something like, “Hey, we’re getting a little bit out of hand here.” Instead, they clapped their hands as Wayne LaPierre wove his prophecies of permanent darkness, and hoped that they could pick up some political capital from the crowd’s fervor.

Fundamentalist Rick Santorum Expresses Concern at Emergence of Demographic Reservoir Tip

“We’ll repeal Obamacare and get rid of any idea that you have to have abortion coverage and contraceptive coverage. One of the things I will talk about that no president has talked about is, I think, the dangers of contraceptives in this country. The whole sexual libertine idea. Many in the Christian faith have said, […]

My Own New York Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Poll

Yesterday, I received a New York Voter Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Polling Ballot in the mail. Why would I receive a presidential preference poll from the Republicans, when I’ve never voted for a Republican in my life? I suppose the GOP data bots were programmed to note that I’m a political independent, and bring me […]

Rick Santorum is Running for President in 2016: Remember…

that Republican former Senator Rick Santorum is preparing to run for President in 2016, guaranteeing that the debate in the GOP primaries will be pulled to the right in an entertaining manner. Say whatever you like about Rick Santorum’s politics (please, go ahead), but he sure is fun to watch. Take a walk down […]

Santorum Suicide By Gasoline

It’s strange to me that Rick Santorum would choose to use this particular image in a campaign ad, because what the picture shows is suicide through the means of gasoline. It looks to me like a statement that our dependence upon gasoline is killing our society. That’s a message that doesn’t support Santorum’s freak out about gasoline prices. It suggests that we all need to relax, walk away from the gasoline pump, and simply drive our cars less when the price of gasoline is high. […]
