    In April 2003, Senator Rick Santorum stated that, “If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything.” For this he was mocked and vilified. It turns out he was right.

    Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy is in hot water with the LGBT community because he committed the cardinal sin in an age of political correctness: Thou must not speak ill of anything gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders wish to do.

    Gay marriage, the Muppets, and a fast-food chicken franchise: what do they have to do with each other? Nope, it’s not about Bert and Ernie’s eating habits.

    Rick Santorum endorses Mitt Romney, the man he once described as the "worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama."

    "The mind of a bigot," wrote Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., "is like the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will contract." In other words, bigots tend to shrink in size and weight the closer they get to the truth.

    With Rick Santorum having dropped out of the race, Mitt Romney is apparently the Republican nominee for POTUS, barring a “black swan” event swooping down out of nowhere.

    Most campaigns have a musical theme. Rick Santorum, who "suspended" his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, might have selected the song "The Impossible Dream."

    The race for the Republican presidential nomination has been over for some time, and now Rick Santorum has finally admitted it -- and let it be over. At last.

    I’m all for people being rich and living in big two million dollar houses, but I’m not all for people who live in a house which is almost ten times the national average value saying they are too poor to give away a significant portion of their income.

    This presidential campaign cycle can be measured by gaffes. They are becoming a way of marking time. Something could be said to have happened “between the Holocaust survivor phone calls in Florida and ‘I’m not worried about the very poor.’”

    A growing avalanche of Republican support has been orchestrated to push the grassroots to embrace Governor Mitt Romney. Only halfway through the primary, Republican leaders are telling voters the decision is made. Mitt Romney will be the Republican Candidate for President of the United States. Will Wisconsin voters fall into line on Tuesday’s primary or will they speak with a mind of their own?

    With Santorum’s win this last weekend in Louisiana, he continues a trend of faring better than Romney in Right-to-Work (RTW) states. Many of these RTW states are located in the south and have historically been states that haven’t been impacted by labor unions such as those in the northeast and midwest.

    Rick Santorum won the Louisiana primary but is looking zanier by the day, as he can’t control the stream of consciousness erupting from his mouth. The killing of Treyvon Martin dominated news coverage last week leading up to the Louisiana primary, relegating Santorum’s win to its rightful place of a footnote in Saturday’s news cycle.
