Grab The Popcorn – Rick *Don’t Google* Santorum Is Promising To Maybe Enter The Race (VIDEOS)

As a political writer, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the bulging-at-the-seams Republican clown car didn’t make me giddy with joy.

I was especially giddy at the news that never-Google-when-you’re-eating Ricky Santorum is considering squeezing into the car.

Okay, he hasn’t actually announced. He had his pre-announcement announcement (which is a little like a high school promise ring – and holds exactly the same amount of credibility) on Wednesday, saying he will decide on May 27th.

Santorum is best known as being so socially conservative that the Pope thinks he lives in the 16th Century. He’s even against birth control:

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country…. Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.” (Speaking with CaffeinatedThoughts.com, Oct. 18, 2011)

On feminism:

On abortion in the case of rape:

On the Crusades:

“The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) told a South Carolina audience yesterday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”

How can we forget his last go-round when he said that food stamps make “blah people’s lives better.”

“I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money.” (Campaign stop in Iowa, Jan. 2, 2012)

Of course, Santorum’s signature issue, the one that earned him his very own Google trend, is gay people.

In 2012, my colleague Stephen Foster made a list of Santorum’s quotes and trust me, Santorum isn’t shy about his views on gay marriage and on homosexuality in general. He’s compared homosexuality to everything from polygamy to incest to adultery to child molestation to man on dog sex – all in one quote, actually:

“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue yes, it does. It all comes from, I would argue, this right to privacy that doesn’t exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.”

Of course, the only real difference between Santorum and Mike Huckabee is that Huckabee has the yuck yuck likable factor and he’s an evangelical Protestant while Santorum is an evangelical Catholic (I looked it up, that’s a thing) with a mashed potato personality.

Grab the popcorn. It’s going to be fun while someone starts shaking the clown car to see who remains. It won’t be Santorum, but he’ll be an endless supply of ridiculous quotes while he raises the SuperPac money and sells his latest book.
