Molotov Mitchell Hopes for a Big Santorum Splash

Jim Burroway

January 18th, 2012

Ummm…

Meanwhile Columbia, S.C. native Molotov Mitchell, an evangelical Christian video artist whose YouTube political commentaries against Newt Gingrich’s infidelities hit hundreds of thousands of Iowa cell phones via text message and went viral with over 33,000 views prior to the Iowa Caucuses, re-released a pro-Santorum punk-rock video that deals with one of Santorum’s harshest critics, Chicago sex columnist Dan Savage. Savage, a gay rights activist, is the originator of Santorum’s “Google problem,” an effort to redefine the conservative’s name as an obscenity. Mitchell said, “Mitt Romney is kind of like the RINO country club hetero version of Dan Savage, and in his own vacuous way, far more dangerous to hetero-traditionalism. I hope Santorum makes a big splash on Romney’s empty suit this Saturday.”

Mitchell was one of a handful of American Evangelicals who defended Uganda’s “Kill-the-Gays” bill in 2010. I don’t think this will help Santorum’s Google problem at all.

Dan Savage in Chicago!! Apparently the evangelical fringe types are geographically challenged (along with their other knowledge deficits).

That said, I think the Google think was worth a chuckle for a while but has long outlived its cleverness and its usefulness. As gratifying as snark can be, there comes a time to move on.

Umm, no, that time has not yet arrived. Maybe after Santorum leaves politics permanently or finally does apologize for and renounce his anti-gay rhetoric.
