Santorum Upsets Romney’s Apple Cart
Rick Santorum’s big wins last night in Minnesota, Colorado, and Missouri are important signs of the power of reactionary religious thinking in today’s right wing.
Of all the candidates, Santorum is by far the most fanatical; he’s absolutely opposed to all contraception, wants to see abortion made completely illegal, is anti-gay to an insane degree, and is a hard core creationist and global warming denier. He’s the poster boy for Republican atavism, an anti-science avatar for the Tea Party set.
People like Rick Santorum are one of the major reasons why I had to make a public break with the right. They make America a laughing stock to the rest of the world with their backward, deliberately ignorant ideology. And that’s why this coming Presidential election is so important. Blind fanatics like Santorum must not be allowed to gain access to the highest office in the United States.
