    Good, let him win the republican nomination. He is way too far right for any independent voter to vote for. A nomination for Santorum is Obama's ticket to a second term.

    Holy shite, I never thought this would happen. Someone even more obnoxious and incompetent than George Bush. I really want him to win now, it would be hilarious.

    What Santorum ignores is that Kennedy mainly made that speech because back in the day, a significant number of Americans were uncomfortable voting for a Catholic. Santorum is, if I'm not mistaken, a Catholic himself.

    So he actually profited from the kind of attitude that Kennedy put forward in his speech. Because if there had not been a paradigm shift in regards to religion in public office, of exactly the kind he opposes, there would be no way in hell he'd ever run for office.

    I'm not usually one to rip on American and its politics, because we sure have our own problems here in Euroland, but sometimes I can't help but be astounded how retarded it gets. I mean, the people who cheer him on for saying shit like this must have zero historical perspective beyond the mantra that the 50s were paradise and Reagan was God made flesh.

    Santorum is much further right on the political spectrum than Reagan was. The problem with Santorum is that he is a social conservative. He voted to outlaw sodomy in like 2002 or something. I mean really now, Republicans are supposed to be the party of small government. Of government that doesn't interfere in your personal life, but lately that role has shifted to the other party and republicans are trying to start another puritan age.

    Well, nothing stands for it used to. Remember the Republicans started the civil war and eventually outlawed slavery, whereas the ninteenth century democrat liked him some hawt slave labor. Things shift and change. If you read this Japanese books from 1887 called "a discourse by three drunkards on government" you can see that they basically had a version of repub/dem dichotomy that long ago in a different country. Basically, people always disagree, and politics provides shaping forces in a Republic for those disagreements to be mediated. No one is happy, but honestly, I find it hard to get upset or enthusiastic about individual politicians, its really not the correct way to perceive politics.

    Arguments can be made to seem very pressing and urgent, when they really aren't. To quote Nakae Chomin "both sides suffer from a common malady, an excess of anxiety". People get so angry and invested in the now, when real, important change is caused by sustained effort over a long period of time.

    Call me a conspiracy nut, but I can't help but think that special interest groups big and small must be having a huge boner for the whole puritan/evangelical movement, because all it takes to get people to forget all sanity and vote for ridiculous boons to whatever cause not actually in their best interest is to tell them the other guys hate god and want to kill babies.

    I don't believe for a second they started it, they don't have that kind of power. I believe it came along because the end of the cold war left a massive ideological vacuum and the Christian movements already had built up a critical mass in the US. But they must be loving it for sure.

    I for one would truly like to see that. I'm fairly safe here, but the news would be so much more fun with all the liberal groups constantly on red assrape alert - and the op-ed pieces in our newspapers here would be filled with butthurt and rage like they have not been since Bush slammed Germany for not taking part in the Iraq adventure.

    Interesting, so according to Santorum's logic, because government should work to bring all religion into the government, it should include Islam as well. I like where his head is at. Sharia law for our nation is long overdue.

    I have a theory that Santorum and Bachmann were trolls planted by the Democrats, so that Obama stands a chance being a second term president.

    Before. He gave this speech on Dec 14, 2010. It is just becoming important now because he has a chance at making it to the nomination.

    If Santorum wins the Republican nomination, it will become a hard choice on which joke candidate I should waste my vote on.

    if Reagan were alive (and still sane) today, he would be disgusted at what the Republican party has become.

    but yeah, if Santorum does make the nomination, that's an auto-loss for the Republicans.

    Reminds me of how Sarkozy slammed "68". But if it wasn't for that year, Sarkozy would've probably had a hard time to become president.

    Or it's just Hegelian dialectics at work. The inherent contradiction of a thesis produces an antithesis and so on... (Hat tip to Fallout: New Vegas.)
    But his mother attended mass every day, so for the WASPs, that could be hard to swallow. And KKK used to profit on the anti-catholic sentiments.

    I say we do our damndest to get Bill back in the white house by getting Hillary in the oval office. No one would really care if she's doing a shitty job because everyone would be too focused on Bill's global antics as the "first man".

    Implying the senile old fart Regan was was ever sane. Seriously, he was probably in the first stages of dementia the first day he took office.
