The Strangest Pitch for the Presidency So Far

Jim Burroway

October 7th, 2011

GOP Presidential candidate Sen. Rick Santorum pitched the most oddest reason for voting for a candidate to the Values Voter Conference so far. Get ready for this one:

“When you look at someone to determine whether they’d be the right person for public office, look at who they lay down with at night and what they believe,” Santorum said.

Let’s see if any of the other GOP candidates can top that for wierdness.

By the way, was that a shot at Rick Perry?

Good ol’ Rick, going out of the way to live up to the definition of “Sanctorum” as found on Google.

Is he suggesting we sleep with the candidates spouses to see which one is the best lay?

Why is Santorum so obsessed with sex? It is just creepy.

The man is unhinged. Yes Rick you just placed the mental image of you screwing your wife before the eyes of the “values” voters.

Have you seen Todd Palin? I guess I’ll have to vote for Sarah by that standard.

Gives a whole new meaning to WTF.

Remember this is the same man who brought home the remains of an aborted fetus so his other children could mourn it. I don’t think reason & logic were ever his strong points.

First of all, I totally agree with andrewdb…

Thanks for reminding me to google, bing, and yahoo santorum today (and everyday). Make it part of your daily habits, kids.

Could have been a dig at serial-adulterer Newt Gingrich.

I really, really don’t want to have to look in Frothy Mix’s bedroom at night. That right there is reason enough not to vote for him.

The sex-obsessed sh!t is living up to his name I see.

enough already

Note, please, he said ‘at night’.
He did not refer to the afternoon motel trysts with bought boys.

The good news is, if the far right of the Christian world leave this conclave of hate with the feeling they are ‘called’ to run a third party candidate to ‘save’ ameriKa, then Santorum will deserve our thanks.

And that is the feeling I’m getting from this week. There’s something wrong with all the front runners.
Intelligent while black – Cain.
Too dumb to notice he’s dumb – Perry.
Mormon and thus not Christian – Mittens.

Bachmann and Santorum would make a lovely third party ticket, no?

“Bachmann and Santorum would make a lovely third party ticket, no?”

God damn, I do *Not* want to see what kind of campaign slogans they would come up with.

Nor do I want to see the amount of ugly religious fanaticism certain people would pour into promoting even a certain-to-fail enterprise like that, just because they could.

One more failing of Rick Santorum is his proper use of the English “lay / lie.” It’s not “look at who they lay down with at night…”
but “look at (the person) with whom they (sic) lie down at night”.
One can lay another person or lie down with another person.

I am still a stickler for the use of “they” for plural, not “he” or she” no matter what Webster may say.

Well there goes the chance of his wife ever running for president……

Well that makes it offical, Rick is as crazy as they come. He would make a great president, of sing sing.
