• Rick Santorum Disavows Bad Joke That Still Reflects His Beliefs

    At the risk of beating a dead joke that's also stupid and unfunny, I must inform you that a man named Foster Friess recently made a stupid and unfunny joke about birth control. Friess, a major Rick Santorum supporter and probable pearl-handled revolver-owner, then said he was sorry. But if Rick Santorum's recent comments are any indication, the GOP gods don't seem ready to let this issue die

    "[Friess] is a supporter of mine, and I'm not responsible for every comment that a supporter of mine makes," said Santorum on CBS's "This Morning." "It was a bad joke, it was a stupid joke, and it is not reflective of me or my record on this issue [of contraception]."

    [Santorum continued,] "This is the same gotcha politics that you get from the media, and I'm just not going to play that game."

    Amen — I'm sick of pundits playing these games too. Santorum may have¬†called contraception unnatural and "not okay,"¬†but that's no reason for his supporters' anti-contraception comments to be equated with him. Right? Plus, Santorum then pointed out that he's actually supported federal funding for contraception.

    Hey, he should've started flip-flopping sooner. It might not have taken him so long to catch up to Romney.
