@Angela M. Do you suspect Santorum because you subscribe, as I do, to Freudian theory, i.e. "projection"?  Freud said people get paranoid and throw away their unwanted traits, hoping they will land on others so that no one suspects the person "projecting" the traits.  Would you have thought Larry Craig a homosexual before the Minneapolis restroom scandal?  Yet, when caught red handed his only defense was, "I am not a homosexual."  Nietzsche was right: the worth of a spirit is its capacity to endure the truth.  Jack Nicholson said it in the movie, too: "The truth?  You can't handle the truth."

There's a license for stuff like that?!  Where can we get one?!  <big evil grin>

Santorum is a scary, scary man.  I predict a sex scandal in his future...he totally fits the profile for one.

Dan needs to talk about Cee Lo changing "Imagine" on new year's eve. I listen to the podcasts at bedtime. I always fall asleep before it's over, so it takes me a while to listen to the whole thing. I like when Annie Laurie says "agitate". Lots of youtube videos on these two, and they always stay calm and win the debate; if they aren't cut off.

I thought his last name was derived from a place where they lock up crazy people: InSanitorium.

Chris, you cannot be saying that pRick went loony because of Mr. Savage's website? Somebody would have sued by now. Oh, no, wait, politicians are open season in all aspects of their lives, and you can say anything you wish about one of them and they have no redress for slander.  None.  So, I don't think Savage went quite far enough.  I think he should have savaged him worse than Larry Flynt that fat little evangelical bullshit artist on TV.

@ Steph S.  What do you expect?  His last name is the term used for a bodily fluid milkshake.  If my last name was "Santorum", I'd be a little crazy too.

Comment by Steph S. on January 10, 2012 at 5:53pm

Yeah he is insane -- Santorum -- (Factotum)

@matthew: That part got me, too, I mean especially.  I had to think it out later.  This is what he said: "It's a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be."  First, exactly what does he have in mind.  By invoking "the sexual realm" and allowing the great unwashed to make of the suggestion what they will, he engages in classic generalization.  It is like saying, "even so-called 'married' gays have a thousand partners a year at least."  But it is all the more potent for its suggestions.  Too bad most of his followers are unaware of the old legal maxim: sometimes a half truth is the worst sort of lie.  Second, how are things supposed to be?  To you?  To me?  To the Pope?  To God?  Who are you to tell me I am supposed to stop before having any kind of sex soever and ask, "What would Jesus do?"  Why is your kind of sex (likely missionary position and, given his tribe, only for the purpose of procreation -- I mean, I think he had sex with his wife about seven times) superior to mine?  I am in the Old Testament as David loving Jonathan.  I am in the Old Testament as a horny goatherd newly arrived in Sodom and refused by Lot the right to a meal, a bit of wine, and sex with Lot's daughters: Rich condemns homosexuality (which was not what Sodom was infamous for) but fully approves of incest between Lot and his daughters, directly ordered by you know who.  Yep, God.  Mr. Factotum's problem is not that he is conservative and evangelical and part of the far religious right.  His problem is that he is insane.
