Santorum Continues to Spread

Posted by on January 5 at 12:45 PM

From this week’s Economist:

The fall of Rick Santorum, Pennsylvania’s junior senator, is even more eagerly anticipated by the American left. Mr Santorum is one of America’s most articulate opponents of all things permissive. His six children are home-schooled; he opposes stem-cell research; he feels that sodomy should be outlawed; he favours national service. James Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family, an evangelical group, praises his “integrity, vision and unwavering commitment to the principles and beliefs upon which the United States was founded”. Meanwhile, gay activists use his name to denote something indescribable in a family newspaper.

Who could those gay activists be? Why, they’re me! But the word isn’t being used by activists alone. The word was mainstreamed long, long ago.

An alert Stranger and Economist reader named Patrick brought this to my attention. Thanks, Patrick!

Why are you and John Aravosis always referred to as "gay activists" or "liberal activists"... what the hell does activist mean anyway? Someone who wants the same rights as anyone else? Why isn't Dobson referred to as a nutcase-activist?

Of course, I'm thrilled with the spread and recognition of santorum. I read a little bit further, however, to the Most Unnecessary category, lauding "the poison erototoxin, which, according to the Senate testimony of antisex "researcher" Judith Reisman, is released into the brain when a person looks at pornography." It does not so much exist.

Of course, I had to visit this woman's website.

On her homepage, she has two quotes from authorities praising her and her 'work.' One is from Dr. Rice of Notre Dame, whoever he is. The other is from fucking WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA!!!!!! Really, Judith? That's the best you got? I think they sent me a letter in high school, but I'm certainly not about to put it on my website, especially when I'm selling myself as an "expert witness."

What a crack head. People are totally foolish.

Dan, you need to update the site a bit!

I like when he's referred to as Rick "Man on Dog" Santorum. That one stuck around for a while, but I haven't been seeing it so much lately.
