  •  This polygamy smokescreen (15+ / 0-)

    Confirms that Santorum has no real reason to oppose same-sex marriage. He implies that anything other than "his" kind of marriage puts all of humanity in a slippery slope to polygamy, bestiality, and other things that consume altogether too much of his mental bandwidth.  

    If I didn't know better, I would think he's jealous of the fact that many same-sex couples enjoy more loving and authentic relationships than what he has experienced in his private paranoid purgatory.  

    You cannot enlighten the unconscious.

      Very well put.

      Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. Herman Melville US novelist & sailor (1819 - 1891)

    •  I'm surprised he didn't use "man on dog" as a way (1+ / 0-)

      to get his point across!  I guess his handlers have told him that "man on dog" cannot be used anymore so the frothy one is only left with the polygamy false equivalency.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      to either ban or severely restrict contraception (or leave it up to the states, which would lead to a lot more state line 7-11s for boys to pick up condoms), and it's pretty much evident that any family that doesn't involve husband, wife and a passel of kids is "unnatural". So it's not just same-sex couples he's jealous of -- it's anyone who's having a hell of a lot more fun than he is in the sack.
