• Rick Santorum Tells Rape Victims to Make Lemons Out of Lemonade

    Rick Santorum is a compassionate conservative. Rich, poor, male, female, white, "blahk," your pain is his pain.

    So in a recent interview with Piers Morgan, the creepily pro-life candidate reached out to pregnant sexual-assault victims to offer them some comfort. He told the women to buck up and look on the bright side — of rape

    "Well, you can make the argument that if she doesn’t have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life… 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.

    "As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation."

    Widening income gap? Don't try to stop it from getting worse. Let's just make the best out of a bad economic trend and allow the ultra-rich to take in poor people as house-slaves. Iran's building nuclear weapons? Don't try to prevent it. Let's just wait till they attack.

    As the son of an Italian immigrant, Santorum knows: When life hands you a mushroom cloud, make a creamy mushroom risotto.
