Rick Santorum, Thank You For Making My Job Easier

Oh, Rick Santorum, I was at once giddy about and terrified by your run for the presidency.

While the prospect of having a President Santorum was shudder-inducing, you just kept coming up with just the silliest, most stereotypically clueless nonsense.

Highlights include:

One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country… Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.

President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob … 

“Earlier in my political career, I had the opportunity to read the speech, and I almost threw up.” (on JFK’s 1960 speech about the importance of separation of church and state)

I’ve been getting a little bummed out with my weekly dose of Santorum man-on-dog nonsense, but then he came Rick-roaring back!

“Gay marriage is like 9-11!”

“We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country,” Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, told the audience at the Omni Shoreham hotel. “We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”

Santorum also criticized the libertarian wing of the Republican party for not supporting what he sees as the pillars of conservatism: religion and family.

“When it comes to conservatism libertarian types can say, oh, well you know, we don’t want to talk about social issues,” Santorum said. “Without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values of America.”

No smart people in the conservative movement?  No values of America without the chuch?

Welcome back, Rick!
