Rick Santorum Hopelessly Tries To Retract Homophobic Racist Opinions

After a three-way tie with fellow homphobes Mitt Romney and Ron Paul in the Iowa caucus, Surgin’ Santorum is getting ready to face the rest of the nation’s primaries. His problem: the Republicans in those states aren’t nearly as radically homophobic as Iowa’s fundamentalist nut-cases.So now, to appear more moderate, he’s denying he ever put gay marriage and “man on child, man on dog” in the same basket of un-heterosexual abominations.

Skip ahead to about the one-minute mark in the above video and watch him squirm after CNN’s John King reads back this quote, from his now-infamous 2003 interview with the AP:

”In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.”

It’s no coincidence that this quote launched Dave Savage’s Google-bombing campaign against the guy.”

Santorum responds, “Hold on one second, John. Read the quote. I said it’s not. I didn’t say it is. I did not connect them. I specifically excluded them.”

Quite clearly the “It” being referred to is Santorum’s “definition of marriage. He is saying in effect, “The definition of marriage is not homosexuality, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.”

At a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday, January 1, 2012, Santorum was talking about entitlements when he said, “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money!”
