• Rick Santorum's Bizarre Tonight Show Appearance

    It's always strange when failed presidential candidates appear on late night talk shows and act like it's some sort of hilarious sitcom reunion. And it's even weirder when that politician fueled his campaign by exploiting the bigotry and ignorance of the GOP base.

    Hey, remember that time I actively advocated for discriminating against gays? Ha. Remember when I based my whole campaign on limiting women's access to health care? Good times, good times.

    Behold the laugh riot that is Rick Santorum's appearance on the Tonight Show…

     

     

    At one point during the interview, Leno jokingly suggests that "the worst thing ever" for Santorum would be a gay couple smoking with contraceptives. Rick Santorum throws up his arms in mock disgust, saying "Oh my God. Heaven forbid!" Hahaha, what a jokester! He thinks gays and condoms are evil! He was almost president. LOL.

    Santorum also gave Leno one of his trademark sweater vests as a wacky souvenir from the campaign trail. But Leno probably won't wear it. It's not biker denim.

    Rick Santorum may not have won the nomination, but he did achieve one major accomplishment last night. He made Jay Leno seem likable.
