Rick Santorum is dumber than you

I aim the title of this post to the dumbest reader. No matter how stupid you are; no matter whether your IQ is 7 or 17—you are more intelligent than Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator/apparent future GOP presidential candidate.

If you read this blog, you’re probably noticing that Santorum has replaced Sarah Palin as my personal favorite. Palin may well be evil, but she’s at least evil in the name of making lots of money and garnering attention. That’s all ego—and since we all have egos, it’s certainly understandable.

Santorum, however, isn’t about ego. Not technically. No, he’s about holiness. His holiness. That’s why he’ll run for president. Not to fix the economy or salvage Egypt. To Slick Rick (whos’ actually painfully un-slick), this is about right vs. wrong, good vs. bad, moral vs. immoral. His latest salvo was fired earlier today, when he took aim at Indiana’s Mitch Daniels, another (lame) potential GOP candidate who says (rightly) we need to focus on the economy, not morality.

Rick’s response: “I would argue that what menaces us all is a society that is falling apart. The reason government has gotten so big and we’re spending so much money is because the family is breaking down, because fathers aren’t involved in taking care of their children.”

This, of course, makes no sense whatsoever. Like, even Palin would read that and say, “What the f^%$ are you talking about?” But Santorum truly seems to think that any American problems can be solved with Christ, and he’s only being fed by the likes of George Will, who calls him a “relentless ethicist.”

The problem: His ethics suck.

    Families are not breaking down. They are stronger than ever. Divorce rate is down from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. Fathers spend more time with their children than at any point in American history.

    Nor do they feel as much pressure to enter them to begin with. And that’s a good thing. For the most part – and this isn’t across-the-board, because it’s a big country – the people who are parents and spouses are parents and spouses because they chose to be parents and spouses, not because that’s just what you do.

  3. Does your recent unresearched and inaccurate article complaining about the “millions” of fathers who shirk their fatherhood duties make you dumber than Rick Santorum? Obviously, it does.
