Santorum as the inspiration for the term "Santorum", meaning "the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex".
Eight years after columnist and "It Gets Better" founder Dan Savage helped coin the term with a contest, his site SpreadingSantorum.com still comes up in the top three Google searches for Santorum.
But you may have forgotten that this homophobic douchebag from Penisvania was actually elected to the U.S. Senate, where he served from 1994 to 2007 before was was soundly defeated by Democrat Bob Casey.
Not to be denied his mad quest for power, Santorum is now a Fox "News" contributor (big surprise), where he continues to rant about the evil liberals and and the immoral homosexuals.
Santorum finds himself in a little hot water today over his remarks on a Christianist interview program where he talked about aborion as a civil rights issue. He criticized President Obama's pro-choice position, saying, "I find it almost remarkable for a -- for a -- for a black man to say, No, we are going to decide who are people and who are not people."
Santorum defended his remarks to Fox's Greta Van Susteren, last night, maintaining that his remarks were taken out of context. He said with a straight face, "I don't think there's anything to apologize for!"
Santorum also clarified his opposition to LGBT adoption rights, saying, “This is common sense. This is nature. And what we're trying to do is defy nature because a certain group of people want to be affirmed by society. And I just don't think that's to the benefit of society or to the child.”
This is the best that the GOP has to offer folks. Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin are the current Republican presidential front runners for 2012. I do have to agree with them on one thing. This country is in a severe moral and intellectual nose dive, but not for the reasons these tools would have you believe. There are actually people out there that support these idiots with their hard earned money and really think they have what it takes to be president. That is the real shame of this country.
