Everything’s Coming Up Santorum!

You guys, Christmas has come early this year. Rick Santorum is running for President in 2016. It’s truly a time for America and the baby Jesus to celebrate.

Making this my cell phone wall paper for six months is really paying off now.

Making this my cell phone wall paper for six months has really paid off.

What bounteous riches will Santorum cover us in during this 2016 campaign year? So far, the traditionally tightly-wound candidate has assured the Daily Caller that he’ll appeal to young people by letting them know he has “…seven kids, so obviously sex isn’t a real problem for me.” The idea of Santorum asking his wife if she’d like to “procreate with him tonight” is sure to get these young people’s attention.

And getting his head out of the gutter for one second, Santorum has a message for immigrants: we need to pause immigration for now because we haven’t indoctrinated the ones we have. “That’s not anti-immigration, that pro-immigration, because it says we want folks to come here to experience the American experience, to learn what it means to be an American, to assimilate into our culture.”

Y’all, Rick Santorum is really into you but as long as you insist on hanging onto your own culture, you’re ruining things for everyone.

Wipe it clean

Black people, Rick Santorum will probably have something to offer you soon, if history tells us anything. Remember the good old days of the presidential race of 2012, when Santorum told a mostly-white group of Iowa voters, referring to welfare programs, “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 money.” Santorum must have quickly realized his faux pas in not promising job opportunities for Iowa’s underprivileged white population (9% of food stamp recipients in Iowa are black, and 84% are white) if the movie posters for his Christian film company Echolight are any indication.

Ladies, Santorum didn’t have time to whip himself into a froth over us in his most recent Daily Caller interview either, but I think we can all be pretty confident that he’ll continue to work to make abortion illegal even in cases of rape and incest:

“I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you…..we have to make the best out of a bad situation.”

We can only hope that Rick Santorum will continue his press tour and that America doesn’t forget his past genius ideas for single mothers (get married!), Palestine (∄),gay marriage’s equivalence to dog marriage and 9/11, condoms (unnatural), porn (Ban it. No, like actually take the time and money to pass a law to ban porn.), and bowling ball colors (pink is for girls only). Instead, let’s look to the future as Kirk Cameron’s political equivalent promises that after all the campaign fumbling and pushing and the final release when the election’s over, he always comes out in the end.

This is for My Girls All Around The World

Today, I am working on the craziest project for my boss, looking for a garage that can fit a giant, modified art piece set on top of a Hummer. Thus I’ve spent the afternoon calling around to storage facilities to varying degrees of success. When I told one man at Smiths Storage (not the real name), what the dimensions of the car were, he said in the nicest voice, “Are you sure those are the measurements? Who gave you those? ‘Cause sometimes women don’t measure as well as men.”

I wish that I had come up with something incredibly witty and elegant to say back. I did not. I think I said something to the effect of, “Let me check and see if she used a real tape measure, since women are so incapable,” and slammed down the phone to his muttering, “No, I mean…uh.”

This was not my finest moment. For starters, I’m decently sure you don’t use a tape measure to find the dimensions of a car. Also, instead of being cool and collected, I reacted in a less dignified way, thus giving that asshat fuel to be all, “Women; why are we letting them use the phone when they should be in the kitchen?” I am however impressed that any small business owner in this recession would have the gall to be so blatantly sexist to a potential customer. That’s a specific type of integrity you see all too rarely in these troubled times.
