Rick Santorum Cannot Keep Up

By Henry Hunter

Rick Santorum is an imbecile. He is such an imbecile that he makes men with names as Newt or Mitt seems like good choices for the big job. Obviously none of them are right for the job because they put their faith in someone they cannot see. Which is fine, if you are a regular schmo, but not if you are in charge of a country. You have to be logical, in an ideal world at least, and a man who lets his religion dictate policy is not a politician.

The responsibility of the politician, particularly the ones who lead, is to serve the public. By passing off your own failings as a human in the guise of your perception of a religion, you are not serving the public you are dictating to them how they should live.

Rick Santorum is quite possibly the most detestable man in US politics right now, which is quite a feat I am sure you will agree, a sexist and an intolerant bigot. He has no ideas.  He is stuck with passing off his own failings as a human in place of policies. He makes a stand against heavy metal music, while his country slips further into economic crisis. He claims gays and women should not be allowed in the military, while the rest of his constituents reside in 2012 well, most of them.

Naturally, I understand that people will react positively to what this brainless halfwit is spewing from the hole in his face, people know what they want, that doesn’t make it right though, does it?

Some of the worst people to ever scar this planet with their existence have been right in some people eyes. Look at the Pope, that person is a criminal. That person allows pedophiles to evade justice, but say that to a catholic and watch the sparks fly. The Pope is not God he is not in charge of anything really except the largest collection of stolen goods on the planet.

Calling Rick Santorum out on his grotesquely blinkered view of the world will probably do nothing to sway his followers away from voting for him. They have already crossed so many lines about how they let their religion be used against them that one more will not matter. Get a badly educated religious nut job take the hot seat and lead the charge against the other religious nut jobs. It worked out so well last time.

It is impossible to focus on these people without thinking of the song Ballad of a Thin Man, not just Santorum, Gingrich and Romney, but all the Right-wingers, specifically those who pour their own self-loathing into their policies. They just do not know what is happening, the world is changing faster than they can evolve their mind. They have been brought up to think that they are right, we are wrong and sex is a sin worthy of banishment to the hottest corner of hell. They talk about returning to the old values, oblivious to how everything works and how those days are long gone.

How can you expect to lead a country if you cannot even keep up with the evolution of it? Rick Santorum represents a tiny percentage of the country he wants to lead, and he thinks they should all learn to live like him. Vote for Rick, become a homophobe, sexist imbecile, or vote for the other guy. That is the choice.

    For me personally- I don’t know. Of ocurse, no politician has any real moral superiority over the average person- it’s foolish to think they could, even more so to believe their BS when they claim so.But since we’re talking about Republicans, whose whole raison d’etre according to the campaign propaganda is moral superiority, hell yes. They *make* it relevant by spouting all junk designed to reel in those who are browbeaten by their dogmatic beliefs into wanting to be strongly led by moral authorities.
