Rick Santorum
"I will always take a strong stand for bigotry in the name of the big guy upstairs!" (Sarah Conard/Reuters)
Won't someone please think of the bigots?
GOP presidential candidate and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) said the Obama administration's view of proponents of the California's "Proposition 8" amounted to bigotry. [...]

According to Santorum, speaking at a campaign stop in Texas Wednesday, the administration's view of advocates of Proposition 8 is that their "'belief of marriage between a man and a woman is purely irrational based on irrational hatred and bigotry. Where's the tolerance in that?"

Of course, the Obama administration hasn't actually said anything about the recent ruling on Proposition 8. But no matter—poor Rick Santorum is feeling awfully oppressed by the president's intolerance of Santorum's intolerance. Why, it's getting so a proud bigot like Santorum can't even express his hatred openly without imagining that the president doesn't agree with him!

Poor guy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
