  •  Don't forget dogs, or other animals. Remember (11+ / 0-)

    this is Rick, man-on-dog Santorum, whose primary reaction to the SCOTUS 2002 (2003) Griswald v. Texas ruling striking down sodomy laws on the basis of a right of privacy, went on a bender declaring there would be no remaining protection for civilization from being overrun by mobs of people having sex with dogs, horses, cows, and other animals.

    If we've learned nothing else from the numerous series of right-wing politicians, evangelicals, and others who vociferously rage against evil to protect the rest of us, is that they are projecting their own fears and desires onto these threats.

    So, how I interpreted this is that in 2003, Santorum was announcing to us that the only reason he doesn't regularly have sex with animals is the laws against it.  It never occurred to most people that this was the most important interpretation of the implications our Constitution containing a right to privacy.

    My fear was that folks would spend all day sleeping in late, blogging on political networks, and making fun of Republicans -- and I was mostly right, as far as I can see.
