Santorum: Still bad for women
Would it be better for the nation’s collective mental health to just not think about Rick Santorum? Um, yes.
But this is a guy who is a serious competitor for the Republican Presidential nomination. He’s carried four states through the primary season so far and he’s polling right with Mitt Romney nationwide. Serious competitor; seriously scary.
More than a few of Santorum’s (very poorly conceived) thoughts about women and families have given us more than enough reasons to listen up -- mental health be damned -- because his views are absurdly out of line. And these views prove that he’s got exactly zero qualms with the notion of women as second-class citizens. We’ve looked through Rick’s terrifying statements before, so let’s get started on today’s installment of the saga of Santorum-induced insanity.
The Washington Post relayed some of his worst and/or most mind-boggling assertions. Some come from a book he wrote, some from recent interviews, none fail to impart the crazy.
Just a reminder, Rick. It might be making us shudder and head to the medicine cabinet, but we’re paying attention to what you say, and these kinds of things won't get you off the hook anytime soon.
