Santorum! Try using your brain! (Oh right, you don't have one...)

I was born in New Hampshire, raised in Connecticut. I met my wife in Massachusetts and I live in Maine. Most of my relatives are from Rhode Island, including my parents. In short, I am as New England as they come, and the "big city" in my life was never New York, but Boston.


I. Love. Boston. For all its corruption, ridiculous traffic, lousy winters and the rest of it, I love that place like a fat kid loves cake.


So when I read that the Mighty Mental Midget, a.k.a U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (a fine specimen of current Republican leadership) took it upon himself to trash the Hub of the Universe, I couldn't sit idly by.


See, Sen. Halfwit said that the Catholic sex abuse scandal was a result of "promoting alternative lifestyles (which) spawns aberrant behavior" and that since Boston is a liberal city, it's no wonder that the scandal started here.


In other words, liberalism=pedophile priests.


Gee, that's nice. What's next? Democrats=puppy killers? How about working women=cannibal communists? How dumb is this guy?


It pains me even more b/c I am still (nominally) a Republican. I have yet to offically de-register. I keep hoping that the GOP will regain its sanity. Instead, we get a professional drunk like Tom Delay and a moron like Santorum leading the party.


His reasoning is so faulty, so completely bereft of logic, it staggers the mind. Has he ever BEEN to Boston?? If this is such a licentious city, why is the Combat Zone practically gone now? Why was "Banned in Boston" a regular way to promote the carnality of a motion picture for decades? Why is the divorce rate among the lowest in the nation??


Conversely, if conservatism=morality, why is the divorce rate higher in the South? Why is it, when I drive along I-95 in North Carolina, I see numerous billboards advertising for strip clubs??


And if conservatism=morality, why have more priests been defrocked by the Vatican in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (Sen. Santorum's stomping ground) than in the Archdiocese of Boston? Senator Santorum, perhaps you should direct your ire elsewhere, hmmm?


And perhaps you should also note that the drive to expose these pedophile priests began in Boston, so it would only go to reason that the scandal broke in Boston. Duh.


It's a good thing for this gibbering idiot there isn't an IQ requirement to be in the Senate. As that great philosopher Bugs Bunny said, "What a maroon!"
