Rick Santorum is a knob

Sure, he's a genuine conservative. He also tends to give the rest of us conservative types a bad name because Senator Santorum suffers from an acute case of Foot In Mouth disease. Excerpt:


What drew the concentrated ire of the Bay State's congressional delegation was Santorum's decision this week to repeat his three-year-old comment that liberalism was at the root of the scandal over child sex abuse in the church.

"Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture," Santorum wrote in a July 12, 2002 article for the Web site Catholic Online. "When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm."

Moron. Now I find myself agreeing with a crapweasel such as Ted Kennedy. Ugh. Well, blind squirrel, nut, etc..

Update: Captain Ed is of the same opinion:


As a Catholic and a conservative, nothing would please me more than if we could blame the sexual-abuse scandals of the Church on a permissive society. Unfortunately, it simply isn't true. Pedophilia has nothing to do with liberal sexual mores. The sexual abuse of children involves illnesses without cures, and the scandals have to do with a church hierarchy that refused to recognize that and keep sick priests away from vulnerable boys and girls.

Normally I would rather eat raw squid with mushrooms and beets than agree with Ted Kennedy and John Kerry. Neither of these men conducted themselves with much honor during their political careers. Both owe so many apologies to so many people that hearing them call for someone else to apologize almost makes me spit out my beverage over my laptop screen.

In this case, however, they're right.

Update: Michelle Malkin agrees that Ted Kennedy is right which, by my reckoning, means that the seas should be turning to blood any second, or maybe it'll rain frogs. Then again, cats and dogs have been known to live together on occassion, so maybe I'm jumping to an unwarranted conclusion. We should know soon enough.
