    To be fair to the republican party Santorum had no support for most of the primary, then got a short spike in support during Iowa which has now faded away.

    RON PAUL 2012!

    Is this YouTube? Ron Paul must be the first time normally sensible people supports a creationist for president.

    I'm not American, and I'm deeply curious: Do American women really go for this crap? Is there one single possessor of a uterus in the USA who heard Santorum say that and thought "yeah, I'm comfortable with this level of judgmental control of the female reproductive system by a man, and will gladly give him my vote?"

    Because if somebody said that here in Ireland, they'd be dismissed as a crackpot lunatic from the Christian Solidarity party (who are all wingnuts). And abortion isn't even legal here!

    I'm betting that highly religious women who think only provocatively dressed sluts and whores are the ones who get raped would probably think that, Kip.

    The capacity for cognitive dissonance in right-wing authoritarians is exceptional. (That is, if you believe the research methodology is sound.) Source.

    Basically what Veg said.

    What does creationism have to do with the President's job?

    personally I wouldnt trust someone who disregards mountain loads of evidence in favour of ridiculous fairy tales about sky wizards. I wouldnt vote for someone who's moral framework is shaped by fantasy

    Yeah :( Sometimes the world is a sad place.

    Stern, I wouldn't mind if someone I was voting for was religious or not, as long as they didn't try to impose their beliefs on the general public or use them to run the country.

    religious is one thing but creationist is as far down the rabbit hole as you can get.

    Ron Paul's moral framework is shaped by the non aggression principle.

    I wouldn't trust someone like Obama who signed the NDAA into law.

    I'd rather he be skeptical of economic and foreign policy party lines than evolutionary evidence. The cost of continuing our out-of-control deficit spending and brush fire wars in the Middle East is astronomically higher than a personal disbelief in evolution. Shit, if Paul has his way then he'd have no say on state educational policies anyway.

    It's weird that rape is brought into the abortion debate at all. The example of a woman being raped always gets used as an argument in favor of abortion, but it's so silly. The opponents oppose abortion because they view the fetus as a person*, how it was conceived shouldn't even factor into the debate. If they don't support abortion because they see it as murder, they're not gonna support it when it's murder still but with a different motivation. I can understand that he said that because hell, what else is he gonna say? Someone who opposes abortion except when the fetus is conceived by rape quite frankly is a moron.

    * I can't help but think that if they really viewed it as a person, they'd be a little more ticked off than they are about the whole abortion thing. Sure, they get pretty mad about it, but if it's really a person to you then you live in a country that commits a mini Holocaust every year and I'd expect quite a different response.

    Yeah, I'm glad somebody said this... if someone believes that life begins as a fetus, how can you not expect them to extend that belief to fetuses which are a product of rape? If you're committed to being pro-life, it would be hypocritical and kind of sick to be honest. The implication being that these fetuses are actually subhuman due to how they were conceived.

    And that said, Olivia Benson is totally smokin' <3 <3

    Her low-cut top makes me want to rape her. If this were Iran I would not be prosecuted for these uncontrollable urges, damnit!

    In the mental state I am right now (nicotine and alcohol aplenty), that still sounds like a terrible idea.
