As Republicans race to the right, truth fails in the face of eager to please conservative rhetoric

With Republican candidates competing with each other to see who can support the most self-contradictory far right positions, such as advocating for corporate personhood in the name of freedom and small government, while seeking to deny gays equal rights and increase governmental intrusion upon women who want the right to choose what to do with their own bodies, it seems that the only thing you need to be a Republican candidate for president these days, is the ability to loudly proclaim an (occasionally shifting) strong set of conservative beliefs.

With Rick Santorum opposing sodomy and gay marriage, he needs a new slogan

Rick Santorum, who just tied for the lead in the Iowa Republican caucus, is a vehemently anti-gay marriage, anti “sodomy” crusader.Factoring in that “sodomy” includes premarital sex, Rick Santorum, a “small government, anti business regulation” Republican, still believes that government should be big enough to govern over how individuals live their personal and sexual lives. With that kind of hypocrisy, a new slogan is in order. Special thanks to Dan Savage for “calling it like it is,” and single-handedly making it impossible for such a hater of humanity to ever be elected president of the United States..
