Santorum Attacks Fellow Candidates as Not Anti-Gay Enough

Okay, this amuses me. Rick Santorum is attacking Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry as not being anti-gay enough to be president.

“I have been a long-time advocate for states’ rights. However, I believe as Abraham Lincoln did – that states don’t have the rights to legalize moral wrongs.

“Mr. Cain, Congresswoman (Michele) Bachmann and Governor (Rick) Perry all believe 50 different definitions of marriage is fine, I strongly disagree and will continue fighting for traditional marriage between one man and woman.”

I can almost imagine the conversation with his handlers.

“How do we stop being completely irrelevant in this campaign?”

“I know, we’ll go after the wingnuts for not being wingnutty enough.”

It’s so cute that he thinks that’s actually going to help him. Imagine how crazy you must be if Michele Bachmann isn’t bigoted enough for you.

    LOL wut?

    Come on, RIck, it’s like you’re not even trying. You’ve done so much better than this! Where’s your man on dog action, eh? Where’s the dead fetus? Maybe you need to dig it up and have the kids kiss it again!

    Who is this “Santorum” I hear you speaking of? Maybe I should Google him and find out…

    I wanna see Santorum in a GOP debate with his fellow candidate Fred Karger, the only openly gay pres candidate filed in NH.

    Fifty different kinds of marriage? Let’s see… there’s man and wife… man and man… wife and wife… um…

    Look, even if you add transsexuals as a separate class of gender (which these godbotherers never seem to remember), you get six total possible combinations. More only if you include polyamory, which none of the other people on the field are talking about anyway. And at which point you should scrap the whole system and say “civil contracts between multiple parties of the age of informed consent”. Which means, one type of marriage. Just one.

    Jason, since it’s santorum speaking, you have man on dog, cat on panda, armadillo on possum, etc.

    Or he could be talking about Presbyterian-Methodist and Catholic-Mormon marriages.

    Or since he’s a Republican, he may mean white-black, asian-Indian, Guamanian-Japanese, Ugandan-Tuareg, or any number of other ethinic mixes.

    “How do we stop being completely irrelevant in this campaign?”

    When asked why he should be the GOP candidate, he played the “I’m the only one who can swing Pennsylvania” card during last night’s debate.

    anandine: Or it could be he’s worried about Human-Vulcan marriages. Who knows what sort of abomination that might result in!

    Even if we could agree that homosexuality is a moral wrong, the claim that states should not be permitted to legalize moral wrongs is ridiculous on its face. It’s morally wrong for me to cheat at Scrabble–should it be illegal to do so?

    We should start a pool guessing when Santorum gets caught with a tranny hooker.

    He probably has his own hat as well, one that says “President” across the front.
    Not much to whet one’s appetite here, is there?

    Apparently, Mr. Frothy just can’t stop with being the Dictator of what types of sex are permissible, he also wants to outlaw contraception.

    SNL’s depiction of Santorum was spot on – the poor man is just bewildered by the modern world, as if he were timewarped here from 1860.

    Rick is way to concerned about what folks do with their Naughty Bits .

    I saw a title about Santorum, and then read your opening sentence:

    Okay, this anuses me.

    It seemed strangely appropriate, but a second glance made me realize that I really need glasses.

    states don’t have the rights to legalize moral wrongs

    Is he arguing for the recriminalisation of homosexual sex? Shurely that’s the logical implication.

    Of course he is. The whole “Frothy Mix” name comes from Santorum’s outrage in 2003 when Lawrence v. Texas was decided. He thought then that laws against sodomy were not only morally right, but desirable.

    What is ironic is that he is also calling for the criminalization of heresy, adultery, fornication, failure to keep the Sabbath – basically anything the Roman Catholics believe is morally wrong. Yet this man stands on a stage in debate after debate with an entire panel of heretics, blasphemers, fornicators and at least one admitted adulterer,, and never says a word.

    Everything about this guy just SCREAMS “deeply closeted, self-loathing gay.” I’d actually feel a little sorry for him if he weren’t, you know, evil.

    Cptdoom, Oh, I didn’t realise that he had argued for recriminalisation in the past. Does he still argue that, or does he realise that that ship has sailed?

    I also am confused. Is Santorum some sort of Roman Republic-an? I shall also google and find out who exactly he is.

    WHOA!

    “I have been a long-time advocate for states’ rights.” Rick Santorum said. “However, I believe as Abraham Lincoln did – that states don’t have the rights to legalize moral wrongs.”
    “That’s the Federal government’s job. When I am elected President -”
    [Here he paused to allow the laughter fall below a roar]
    “- I fully intend to enforce every one of my moral precepts on the American people, the world and the universe at large.”
    Sadly, he paused far too long. The Republican party delegates (and the media) were distracted by Michele Bachmann dangling a bright, glittery thing, causing them to dirfted away, leaving Santorum to preach to vacancy (otherwise known as fundie voters).

    They were far too kind. I think it was the Philadelphia Enquirer editorial staff who called him “the greatest mind of the 13th century”.

    “I have been a long-time advocate for states’ rights.” Rick Santorum said.

    1) This is douchebag dog whistle for “bigot and proud of it”.

    2) He’s all for state’s rights until a state does something like legalize medical marijuana, gay marriage or abortion.

    So if I were to state that I believe San Francisco should be nuked, I should cakewalk into the Republican nomination, no?

    As a resident of Pennsylvania, all I have to say is, “BWHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!”

    There’s a reason why we kicked him to the curbed by a huge margin last time around.

    So when conservatives argue for “traditional” marriage, do they mean with the dowry, bride price, or dower? What about arranged marriages, virginity tests, and child marriages?

    Oh, how I wish one of the other candidates would have came back with: “Rick, you couldn’t swing Pennsylvania in your last senate campaign. Why should we think you should be able to do it now?”

    And let us not forget that Santorum is also not too thrilled with the whole contraception thing because it encourages sex (especially women having sex without any real threat of pregnancy) and would outlaw the pill, if he could. Rachel Maddow did another take on the Mississippi Personhood Amendment, which Mike Huckabee got Mitt Romney to “absolutely” (Mitt’s word) endorse. The amendment would make abortions, the pill, and IUDs illegal. It would require criminal investigations for women who have miscarriages, and in extreme cases require menstrual fluids to be checked to make sure there isn’t a fertilized egg somewhere in there. Although that last one will probably be reserved for people receiving public assistance, so you Southern Belles probably don’t have too much to worry about, as far as that is concerned.
