“Early in my political career I had the opportunity to read the speech and I almost threw up.”
– Rick Santorum reflecting on John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech advocating the separation of church and state
Now Santorum is trying to back away from that repulsive and dramatic statement. You can’t put toothpaste back in a tube (although some have tried), and Santorum can’t do much to make up for such an idiotic description. Santorum isn’t half the man that Kennedy was in his short life and probably never will be. The thought of Santorum in the Oval Office –with his medieval views of society and the various people who occupy it – makes me want to throw up! Fortunately, most Americans – even conservative Republicans – are too moderate and logical to let this clown get that far.
