"Excuse Me, Mr. Taggart, sir, but I sure hate to see you like this. What if me and the boys was to post all the stupid things that guy has said? Would that pep you up some?"
"That might help."
It seems 'comedian' Dean Obeidallah wrote a one-off for CNN. I was taking it pretty seriously at first. See Dean seems to think that Rick (Oh Please don't google me) Santorum wants to create some kind of Christian-Sharia-Law to the U.S.
The main crux of Dean's fear about Rick? On Thanksgiving Day at an Iowa candidates' forum, Rick reiterated: "We have civil laws, but our civil laws have to comport with the higher law." So much for that separation of church and state, there, eh Rick?
But there's far, far more about Rick that's more upsetting than imposing Sharia Law in the US...
Here's Rick's Enemies list - or rather, the people Rick Hates. ('Cause hating your enemies sure is something Christ would do, right?)
In no particular order, with the links to back me up, Rick hates:
- The entire GLBT population,
more than once...
actually a whole lot...
- Folks of any color other than his own,
- Anyone who's on or was on welfare,
- John McCain,
- Anyone on birth control,
- Working mothers,
- Anyone who has ever read a history book about the Crusades,
- Abortion advocates
more than once...
- The National Weather Service
- The Tenth Amendment
- Folks that like Porn
Whoa, whoa, hold on there - you had a typical Republican on any-given-day up until that last one.
You want to unite the Tea Party, the Occupy Movement, and the males age 13-85 against you? You just stepped over that line, buster.
How about rather than telling you that the guy hates just about everything - let's tell you about what he likes.
The National Journal reports: that “Santorum sponsored at least two bills and ‘pushed to amend a mammoth Medicare overhaul to including extra spending,’ all of which would have benefited Universal Health Services, a Pennsylvania-based hospital management company.
A short time after leaving the Senate, Santorum joined the company’s board of directors where he was compensated with $395,000 in fees and stock options.
He also began consulting for a Pennsylvania gas and coal producer, which benefited from policies for which Santorum advocated during his time in the Senate.” Really, that’s the best they’ve got? He tried to protect his home state and then he went to work for a prominent company in his home state.
But you know what, at the end of the day, here's a guy who speaks his mind - and luckily we know exactly where he stands.
