Theocrat Rethuglican loon Rick "Frothy Mix" Santorum lost his last election by 18 points. Ethics issues dogged him in the Senate. He's a well-known homophobic bigot. It's only a measure of how weak and divided the field of candidates is on the Rethuglican side that he's actually leading the Rethug polls in some states. We hope shining light on this ultra-fringe radical will illustrate, because of how far off the deep end his party has gone and how little analysis this has received in the "mainstream" media, how this now passes for Rethuglican normal:
"We all know that this country was founded on a Judeo-Christian ethic. But the Judeo-Christian ethic -- sure the Catholics had some influence -- but this was a Protestant country," said Santorum. "And the Protestant ethic, mainstream, mainline Protestantism, and of course we look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is a shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it." -- Santorum in 2008 at Ave Maria University.
"[Obama's agenda is] not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology."-- Santorum on February 18, 2012, in Columbus, Ohio.
We'll keep shining the light on this loon as he continues to share his divisive, un-American rhetoric.
