• Rick Santorum Courts the Coveted Bigot Vote

    When campaigning in Iowa for the Republican nomination, it’s important to hit all the key GOP voting blocs: the evangelicals, the corn farmers, the olds and, of course, the bigots

    In taking questions, Santorum defended his past remarks in support of profiling people as potential terrorists at airports, saying "Of course not" when asked by a woman whether everyone who looks different from him should be profiled.

    "This is common sense. You have to look at what the profile is," Santorum said, suggesting that if a certain group of people were blowing up buildings they should be subject to profiling.

    "I don’t want to be called a xenophobe. I want to be called intelligent," he added, explaining he wants to protect the United States of America.

    After this comment, Rick Santorum has about the same chance of being called "intelligent" as he does being called "President."

    OK, Santorum, let’s make a deal: You get to profile your fellow airline passengers based on ethnicity or style of dress and we get to profile presidential candidates based on their Google search results. We'll judge you not by the color of your skin but by the content of your Urban Dictionary entry. Just as Dr. King would have wanted.
