>Rick Santorum: Still An Asshole

>Some politicians just need to go away. For example, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, who went on the Laura Ingraham Show yesterday to spout this nonsense:

SANTORUM: Sarah Palin is the Clarence Thomas for feminists. The civil rights community, the African-American community obviously should have rallied behind Clarence Thomas and his achievement, but they hammered him because he was a conservative. And the civil rights establishment was first and foremost liberal and then for the liberal rights of — as liberals saw it, what blacks should have in this country. And the same thing with the feminist community.

Oh, obviously.

Thank you, Rick Santorum, for telling us on the left who we should be supporting. I guess the fact that we didn’t and don’t support these folks is lost on you. I guess any person of color, no matter how extreme to the right, and any vaginal-American, no matter how anti-feminist her beliefs, should be OK with us.

In Santorum’s world, a woman who doesn’t believe in choice, sharing the ticket with a Senator who is against equal pay legislation, should still be OK with feminists simply because of her gender.

Heh. Well, thanks for explaining why Sarah Palin is on the ticket to begin with. I suspected as much. Out of the mouths of idiot wingnuts, eh?

Here’s a news flash for Rick Santorum. Unlike the Kool-Aid drinking Republicans, it’s not just about superficialities with us on the left. It’s not just about a person’s gender, or sexual orientation, or skin color, or religion. It’s also about what stands they take, the policies they support, what they will actually do. It’s about what people believe in.

Imagine that.

I’m not surprised that you don’t get that, Little Ricky. You’ve always been about as deep as a creek bed in August, and about as bright as a dying light bulb.

Now fuck off you little twerp.
