• Ask Rick Santorum: Saddle Up with Polka Dots

    Do you have problems? Former U.S. Senator and current presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has solutions!

    Dear Rick Santorum,
    I've been dating my boyfriend for four years. Our relationship was great at first — we have a lot in common, and I thought he might be The One — but now I'm not so sure. For the past year or so he's been spending all his free time with his buddies from work, and if I try to make plans for us, he tells me he can't let them down. Uh, I guess it's okay to let me down? I don't think he's cheating, but he gets angry if I ask him where he's going, and I'm starting to think he's just terrified of commitment. We can't even discuss the situation because every time I mention it he refuses to talk. I feel like we've grown so far apart that I can't salvage our relationship, but at the same time I'm terrified of a breakup. Help? - Lonelygirl16

    Dear Lonelygirl16,
    You know in your gut big things are adrift. Saddle up, like Reagan did in the cowboy movies. - Rick Santorum

    Dear Rick Santorum,
    My college roommate is getting married this summer, and she asked me to be in the wedding. I'm happy for her, but there's a problem: I have to buy a dress that she chose, without any input from me or the other bridesmaids, and I just found out it costs $650. And there's no way I'll ever wear it again — it's pale pink with big fuschia dots all over the skirt. She told me it’s "on trend." I say it's an insult to our friendship. Who’s right? - Maid in Horror

    Dear Maid in Horror,
    Dots have gone out of style. They’re passé. - Rick Santorum

    Dear Rick Santorum,
    When I was sick for a few weeks last year, I let my sister drive my car because it gets better gas mileage than her truck. Now, I want to borrow her truck for a week, just one single week, to go camping and she's refusing. I call B.S. Am I in the right here? - Carfused 

    Dear Carfused,
    When you compare those, it's not apples to apples. - Rick Santorum

    Dear Rick Santorum,
    People tell me I'm difficult to work with. The staff at design firm I work at have gone over my head a number of times to complain to my boss about my decision-making. They say my choices are reckless and my opinions are needlessly contrarian and baseless. I say I'm speaking and acting from my gut. My boss tells me I should take their criticisms to heart, but I feel it's best to be true to myself. What do you think? - Louis M.

    Dear Louis M.,
    Look at what I've done in my private life and personal life, unfortunately… I have done that. I've done that throughout the course of this campaign… It is an abject disaster… I should get out of the race. These are not cogent thoughts. Rick Santorum
