Breaking News: Republicans Spell Gay, D-I-V-O-R-C-E
"Unfortunately the homosexuals have ruined my marriage," Rick Santorum explained to reporter Bruce Nolan. "Every year more and more of them get married, and every year the relationship with my wife gets worse.
"Ever since the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, we’ve been sleeping in separate rooms. It’s like I don’t even know who she is anymore. This is what the gays want: to destroy the institution of marriage. We won’t be the last."
Rick Santorum, stuck in an exit less closet illustrates the length some people (Republicans and god clods) will go to avoid their own sexual orientation.

Ricky, Ricky You’re Not So Fine. Good Riddance.
Now that his Presidential campaign is over, I’m trying to pin down exactly what it was that I liked the least about Rick Santorum. 
In Santorum’s case, you sort of felt (as Joni Mitchell once said) that Santorum wouldn’t ride on a double-decker bus unless there were a driver on the top. And the way that he said all of that … if Rick Santorum thought that he were truly infallible, then maybe he should have run for a different elective office: Pope. But that is not what I liked the least about Rick Santorum. What I liked least about him is this: He was in Congress for 18 years, and as far as I can tell, he never accomplished anything. Think about it. When did you ever hear Rick Santorum say, “I am very proud of the fact that I [fill in the blank]”? Rick Santorum never did nothing for nobody. That’s pathetic. I’m tired of electing people who want to be something. I want to elect people who want to do something. And if you ain’t done nothing for almost two decades straight, then you just ain’t the right person for the job. Even a sweater with sleeves wouldn’t cover that up. Courage, Alan Grayson

Rick Santorum: Americans With ‘Special Needs’ Won’t Survive Under Obama’s Health Reform

prolongedeyecontact:

Rick and Karen Santorum claimed that fears about how the Affordable Care Act would affect their youngest daughter’s medical condition inspired them to embark on their campaign for the presidency and suggested that the law would ration care to sicker or disabled Americans. “What did it for me was Obamacare,” Karen said in explaining her support for Rick’s decision to pursue the White House on Glenn Beck’s show. “Because we have as you know a little angel, little Bella, special needs little girl, and when Obamacare passed, that was it, that put the fire in my belly.” Rick agreed, arguing that the law would ration care based on the “usefulness” of an individual:

BECK: How much of a danger are the most vulnerable in our society if Obamacare actually kicks in and the whole bell curve…

R. SANTORUM: It’s all about utilization, right? It’s all about how do we best allocate resources where they are most effectively used? […] Government allocating resources best on how to get the best bang for your dollars and it’s all about utility. It’s all about the usefulness of the person to society, instead of the dignity of every human life and the opportunity for people who love and care for people to give them the best possibility to have the best possible life.

Watch it:

But the Affordable Care Act actually prevents insurance carriers from denying coverage to individuals with pre-existing conditions (and disabilities), prohibits health plans from putting a lifetime dollar limit on benefits and specifically invests in programs for people with disabilities. For instance, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has “announced $2.25 billion to extend the existing Money Follows the Person Rebalancing Demonstration Program, which is designed to facilitate people with disabilities staying in their communities instead of being placed in institutional settings” and has provided additional funding for aging and disability resource centers and other programs for sicker Americans. This why groups like the American Association of People with Disabilities, National Organization For Rare Disorders, and The Arc of the United States not only support the law, but have filed an amicus brief in its defense.

Fortunately, the ACA already prevents insurers from limiting or denying benefits to children, meaning that Bella would be able to find insurance coverage if the family loses their policy.

All this coming from the douchecanoe who had zero sympathy for a woman struggling to pay one million dollars for her son’s prescription medication that he needed to live?! This coming from the man who said that was fine because other people could buy iPads?! This coming from the man that thinks affordable health care isn’t a human right and people should be grateful to the greedy pharmaceutical companies for making the medicine they need to survive?! Then there was that pesky time you told a mother that her son (who survived cancer) should expect to pay more for insurance, and that you believed people with pre-existing conditions should be denied insurance because they make poor health choices! 

You are no better than Palin disingenuously using your daughter for inspiration pr0n and scare mongering about rationing care away from people with disabilities, when you yourself have claimed that health care should be rationed! I guess what makes that instance different is you were talking about “lazy” poor people and not your precious daughter. You don’t believe in the “dignity of every human life.” You don’t believe poor people or people with disabilities should have health care. By repealing the Affordable Care Act you’d deprive millions of people of life-saving care AND make it okay to deny people insurance when they…wait for it!…have disabilities. What’s worse than outright lies? Outright lies with a massive side dish of ableism. GTFO.

Santorum
The sometimes frothy, usually slimy, amalgam of lubricant, stray fecal matter, and ejaculate that leaks out of the receiving partner’s anus after a session of anal intercourse. Named, by popular demand and usage, after legislator Rick Santorum because of his homophobic political statements.
"That move was about as slick as santorum!"

CREW - Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington

During the Republican  presidential debate Saturday night, Rep. Ron Paul cited CREW’s research as he  focused the spotlight on former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, whose  ethical lapses landed him in our 2006 Most  Corrupt Members of Congress report. We also filed an ethics  complaint against the senator.
Instead of addressing the  charges, Mr. Santorum responded with the tried and un-true GOP talking point  that CREW only targets Republicans. Fortunately, many fact-checking reporters  caught onto Mr. Santorum’s trick.

The New York Times pointed  out that our 2011 Most Corrupt list is bipartisan, with four liberal House  Democrats on the list of 14 lawmakers. Three more Democrats merited dishonorable  mentions.


The Washington Post noted we’ve named plenty of Democrats as corrupt.


ABC News explained that CREW “focuses its criticism on both parties.”

Mr. Santorum should take a  lesson from CREW and just stick with the facts. To us it doesn’t matter if  politicians are Republicans or Democrats, only that they’ve broken the  rules. Melanie Sloan

Background:
Rick Santorum tried to ban weather forecasts.   Actually, not all weather forecasts.  Just government weather  forecasts.
 I realize that you could possibly be a little skeptical  about that, so here  is the bill, at the official Senate website.  Sections 2(b) and 2(d) of the National Weather  Services [sic] Duties Act of 2005, S. 786, 109th Cong.,  1st Sess.
 By the way, Santorum introduced this bill a few months  after four different hurricanes hit Central Florida, where I live.  In one of  those hurricanes, a big chunk of my roof collapsed, right into the living room.   So weather forecasts are sort of important in my community.  A matter of life  and death, you might say.
 Now you must be thinking, “Wow, that guy Santorum is a  REAL conservative.” Santorum recognizes that government weather forecasts are  meteorological socialism; they are a serious infringement on your constitutional  right not to know whether it will rain tomorrow.  Santorum sees that weather  forecasts are a government takeover of the skies.  In fact, Santorum is such an  astute and profound conservative thinker that he probably realizes that traffic  lights are a government takeover of the roads.
 But this note is not about traffic lights.  It’s about  Rick Santorum and government weather forecasts.  And why Rick Santorum tried to  ban them.
 Here’s why.  It’s because AccuWeather is a commercial  weather forecasting company, and AccuWeather employees gave Santorum more than  $5,000 in campaign contributions. Then he introduced the bill.  Which  subsequently and consequently led to Santorum being named as one of Congress’s  “most corrupt politicians.”  Which is saying a lot.
 I can picture the conversation:
 AccuWeather lobbyist:  “Here is $5000 in bundled  contributions from AccuWeather.  Now introduce a bill to ban government weather  forecasts.”
 Santorum:  “OK.  Sure.  Why not?  Whatever.  I love  this cheesecake.”
 And that is what I’ve seen over and over again.  This  thing called “conservative ideology” has degenerated to the point where it  exists simply to spew out rationalizations for something else entirely:   whatever the corporate lobbyists want.
 A topic that will remain topical, I’m sure, well after  the polls close in New Hampshire tomorrow night.
 Courage,
Alan Grayson
