Election 2008 is four long years away, but that hasn't stopped the "invisible primary" of potential candidates for President putting out feelers in the media. Worried that the country would experience a void of puritanical moralizing after Bush steps down, Rick Santorum is considering a run at the top office.
The man's desire to be President has never been a secret; in fact it is rare for a politician to so openly pine for an office higher than the one they hold, as Santorum has done. For those of you who aren't familiar with Ricky, he is a sweaty, condescending cum dumpster for the wacky part of the religious right. Not the part that's just really Christian….the Bob Jones crowd. Santorum describes himself as a "champion of traditional marriage" (read: homophobic reactionary, deeply in the closet). Suffice it to say that if the support of ultra-conservative religious loonies were a penis, he would unhinge his jaw like a snake and fellate it like the lifeblood of his political career that it is.
The suit says "Trust" and the smile says "Please don't browse the jpegs on my hard drive"
But here's the kicker. He's now under fire from his fascist network of supporters for not leading the charge against fellow Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Specter in his quest for the Judiciary Committee chair. That's right, read the article carefully. I know it's a little shocking at first, but the words really do say "Santorum would like to become the president of the United States, but he alienated a lot of pro-family, pro-life people when he came to Specter's aid over Toomey, who is a strong pro-life man…,"
Live by the sword, die by the sword, I suppose. When someone garners support from the most deeply insane portions of the electorate, it can come as no surprise (nor can it evoke sympathy) when things backfire. How long could Santorum expect to be the standard-bearer of the insane without them turning on him?
So welcome to America, the nation in which Rick "My Uncle Touched Me and Now I'm Going to Take It Out on You, Gay America" Santorum is not sufficiently conservative.
