This post on AmericaBlog reminds us of what a frightening, totalitarian fascist Rick Santorum actually is. It is his belief that the state has the right to regulate the most initimate human sexual conduct. In debate in the Senate today, Santorum revealed himself once again, as clearly as humanly possible:
Santorum is railing against the recent Supreme Court decision, Lawrence v. Texas. That's the decision that rules that states can no longer throw gay people in jail simply because of who they are (up until then, several states made "sodomy" a crime - and remember, sodomy includes oral and anal sex, both heterosexual and gay). So, Rick Santorum is upset that states can no longer throw gay people in jail. Rick Santorum is upset that analingus, cunnilingus and fellatio are no longer crimes in America, even for heterosexual married couples. Rick Santorum thinks this is what the United States Congress should be spending its time and money debating.
But oh, it gets even better again.Santorum just spent a lot of time defending Justice Scalia's dissent in the case. Santorum agrees with Scalia's dissent. That would be the dissent in which Scalia said the following:
State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers’ validation of laws based on moral choices. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today’s decision; the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding. [Emphasis added.]
Yes, Rick Santorum just made the entire debate about masturbation and oral sex.
Incredible. This son of a bitch thinks he has the right to tell us what to do in the privacy of our own bedrooms. How DARE he?!? Where does he think he gets the authority to do so? From his sick and perverted understanding of God?
And another thing: why the hell isn't this clown talking about anything that really matters to people, such as Iraq, the economy, the deficit, gas prices, health care? Because the Republicans are getting crushed on these issues for one. But in a larger sense, he doesn't give a rat's ass about these issues. What matters to him is whether people are having oral sex or whacking off. To me, that's the definition of a sex pervert.
The latest Rasmussen poll has Santorum 23 points behind Pennsylvania's next senator, Bob Casey. Good. I don't just want to see him defeated, I want to see him crushed and humiliated. I want the message to these damned right wing bastards to be loud and clear:
Stay the fuck out of my bedroom.
