Thanks for the laugh, Mr. Santorum

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

Thanks for the laugh, Mr. Santorum

Rick gives us all some much needed levity in this heat and goes after Bill Maher and "hate activist Dan Savage" in his latest fundraising email:

Dear XXXXX,

Bill Maher, host of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO, is famous for taking shots at true conservatives like me on his show. However this past Friday, he and his guests went too far. Well friends, it's time we fought back!

On last week's episode, Maher hosted hate activist Dan Savage. Instead of focusing on the issues and having an intellectual conversation, they broke into vile attacks against me and other conservatives. I refuse to repeat these disgusting, sexually explicit references because these ridiculous attacks are far too inappropriate. However, I wanted to share my interview with Steve Malzberg of WOR in New York City – a responsible radio host who, like you and I, is disgusted by the media's treatment of conservatives like us.

Imagine if this happened to a liberal. Maher and his friends in the Mainstream Media would hit the roof – and rightly so! But when it happens to a conservative, they applaud and laugh.

Some conservatives in the media like Sean Hannity have lambasted these attacks, but we have to do more! We cannot let such filth stand. Your contribution of any amount right now will help strengthen our campaign to protect us from these outrageous comments and obscene attacks in the future.

Remember this is not the first time Savage has attacked us on our stance of supporting American values. Savage and his perverted sense of humor is the reason why my children cannot Google their father's name. I took the high road for nearly a decade by not dignifying these mindless attacks, then even defending his 1st Amendment right to spew this filth. And to this day, liberals like Rachel Maddow serve as Savage's lackeys on national television, pushing his smut.

Yes, he may have the right to belittle and degrade us, but that doesn't mean we have to sit by and not fight back. That is why I need your support today, and your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 to my campaign will help us do just that!

With your help we will make this country great again. You can help right now by making a small or large contribution to my campaign. Don't let Dan Savage and the extreme left win.

Thank you for your support.

Fighting For America,
Rick Santorum

P.S. Fighting for America takes all of us – please join the fight today!

Santorum bought all this on himself, spews his "protected" hate and has the gall to deflect attention and claim that lib-r-ills don't understand his real message. Well tell us what you really think Rick, not in coded jesus speak, but real people words.

He just boosted the views total on that Maher bit by, what, a couple hundred thousand?

He should thank Savage, who has done way more for Santorum in terms of name recognition than money can buy.

Jesus I never googled "Santorum" before. I'm guessing the hits are "piling" up:)

Seriously?

Damn, that's the best part about the Santorum presidential run, and you've been missing all the fun? Even Jon Stewart has hit the "googling Santorum" joke a few times.

"Go ahead, look it up. I'll wait."

It seems some believe there's a parallel Santorum out there – less viscous and more vicious. Others are doubtful. It's time to teach the controversy.
In my house, therefore, we teach the controversy. I make sure my own child knows that Rick Santorum may or may not actually exist—but that he probably doesn't. We considered homeschooling for a while, and still may do it, as we cannot truly be sure our local school will respect our wishes on this matter.
