All About Santorum

Rick Santorum
Strong, Moral, Frothy

Many people have asked me: MoronWatch, what is Santorum? There are two types of Santorum, which explains the confusion.

The first kind is Rick Santorum, the ultra-right wing Christian homophobe who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, and came within a moron’s brain-width of winning in the Iowa caucuses.

The second is defined as “The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex”.

Although this might seem to be an unfortunate coincidence, in fact the latter was invented in honour of the former by gay rights activist Dan Savage.

Now, it’s come to my attention that a large number of very naughty people on the Internet have been linking the word Santorum to a page featuring the latter definition. This has had a strange effect on Google: when the word Santorum is entered, the first result returned is the Spreading Santorum web site, with the official campaign site of bigoted moron Rick Santorum falling to a poor third. Which is a shame, or hilarious, depending on your point of view.

Owing to our high-quality approach to journalism here at MoronWatch, we wouldn’t dream of engaging in such childish activity. We just thought you should know. We advise against clicking the share buttons below, or adding an article on this subject to your own blog, as it will only make the problem worse. The next thing we know, Rich Santorum’s gay-hating fan base may accidentally be visiting a pro-gay, anti-Santorum web site, and thus be turned gay, which would be very bad indeed.

This has been a public service announcement.
