I always believed that when you run for president of the United States, it should be illegal to read off a teleprompter.
Rick Santorum. If stone tablets were good enough for Moses, they’re good enough for America. (via squashed)

Nobody wants to go where everybody’s googled your name:

Santorum

I was in a situation where we have seven children, one disabled child who we take care of, and she’s very, very expensive,” he said. “We love her and cherish the opportunity to take care of her, but it’s an additional expense. We have to have around-the-clock care for her, and our insurance company doesn’t cover it, so I have to cover it.

End Of An Era of the Day: As of this morning, the infamous definition of the word “Santorum” is no longer the top search result on Google.
Spreading Santorum, the website that helped popularize Dan Savage’s alternative meaning, was stripped of its top search result status two nights ago. It was replaced for a time by the markedly filthier Urban Dictionary definition (which even grossed Savage out), but now that too appears to have been moved down (at the time of writing, it is in the number three spot).
SearchEngineLand took a wonky look at what exactly happened, and came back with a pretty troubling response.
It seems Google has been working behind the scenes to implement new SafeSearch features that are left on even when you’ve turned SafeSearch off. One of these features prevents “adult” results from showing up when Google has deemed them irrelevant to the search.
In other words, if you’ve searched “Santorum,” Google “assumes” you’re not looking for frothy fecaled lube, but for the presidential candidate.
Another newly implemented feature aims to return “official sites” as the most relevant search result, and Google again “assumes” that Spreading Santorum is not Rick Santorum’s official site.
So, no more Google Problem for Rick, but an even bigger Google Problem for the rest of us. Fair trade?

When asked if he believed Obama is a “sincere liberal Christian,” the former Pennsylvania senator said he didn’t believe that sort of ideology exists, and that Obama’s church, United Church of Christ in Chicago, had “abandoned Christendom” and used a non-literal interpretation of the Bible.
"I don’t think there is such a thing," he said of Obama as a liberal Christian. “To take what is plainly written and say that ‘I don’t agree with that, therefore I don’t have to pay attention to it,’ means you’re not what you say you are. You’re a liberal something, but you’re not a Christian.”

If you look at the polling on contraception, it`s devastating. If you look at the New York Times/CBS poll questions about the president`s current plan for contraception coverage and health insurance, making private health plans cover the cost of birth control, not only do 66 percent of Americans support the policy, but 68 percent of moderates do, 64 percent of independents do, even 50 percent of Republicans do. But when you listen to Republicans try to explain why they are all suddenly opposed to contraception, it truly is a level of ignorance this country has not seen in a very long time.
Now Republicans are running full tilt against contraception. Somehow the party of small government and personal freedom has decided that contraception is a great election year issue for to run with!? Offended by policies they themselves supported demanding that those policies be rolled back and that we not only carve away access to contraception for people who work at religiously-affiliated institutions, but that we let all employers deny access to contraception.
