Wait, let me get this straight.

(via TPM)
Defending her husband against charges of being anti-woman, Karen Santorum said Monday on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight: “Women have nothing to fear. When it comes to contraceptives, he will do nothing on that issue.”

Wait. So, Rick Santorum believes that  contraception is a danger to this country, yet he intends to do nothing about it?

Seriously, Mrs. Santorum, you need to tell your dimwit husband that he can't go around saying things like

"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"


I don’t think it works. I think it’s harmful to women. I think it’s harmful to our society to have a society that says that sex outside of marriage is something that should be encouraged or tolerated … particularly among the young and it has I think we’ve seen very, very harmful long-term consequences to the society. Birth control to me enables that and I don’t think it’s  a healthy thing for our country.” 

and then have you come out and say "don't worry, he's not going to do anything." Because you really can't have it both ways. You really can't say "vote for me because I will do nothing about this grave threat to our society." You can't claim that birth control is causing "very, very harmful long term consequences to the society" and then say "hey, don't worry about it. I'm totally cool with the baby blockers." Seriously, you just can't do that unless you don't mind looking like an asshole.
oh, right. never mind.

Also, Rick Santorum is fucking crazy.

What is the blue dot on Mr. Santorum's wrist in the first photo?

That's weird. I hadn't noticed that. Maybe he didn't wash up too well after fingerpainting.

One wishes that Mister Santorums' parents had used birth control.
