Sad Santorum

This is an exciting time for sports.

Football fans are gearing up for Super Bowl XLVI (46) in Indianapolis in early February. I could care less about the first 30 minutes and the last 30 minutes of the game. I’m watching just to see Madonna at halftime!

And, it may only be early January, but I’m ready for college basketball’s “March Madness”. My alma mater, the Murray State Racers, are ranked #15 (AP) and #14 (ESPN/USA Today) in the nation in the polls and are 16-0 this season!

However, something that’s turning into quite a spectator sport, of sorts, is the Republican presidential race.

As you know, I’ve been very open about my dislike of crazy Michele Bachmann, poor Rick Perry, and sad Rick Santorum and all of their putrid hate of gays and anything to do with human rights and marriage equality.

Well, to no one’s surprise, Bachmann threw in the towel after the Iowa caucuses and Perry limped back to Texas to re-evaluate his campaign and then he charged off to New Hampshire for Tuesday’s primary.

Needless to say, Perry will be history this week after he finishes in last place in New Hampshire with just a few percentage points of the vote. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jon Huntsman, the only Republican that seems intelligent (Ron Paul has his days), doesn’t drop out of the race this week, too. If not this week, I think Huntsman will be a footnote by the end of January following the primaries in South Carolina and Florida.

While Newt Gingrich is polling well in Florida and South Carolina, he’s losing momentum.

I think the three finalists will be Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum, and Romney will be the Republican nominee. Sarah Palin, here’s your chance!

This brings me back around to Rick Santorum. To the 30,000 people of Iowa that felt that hate is the way to go in 2012, thank you for giving Santorum a boost as he heads off to the East Coast.

This sad little man is so full of hate, it really makes you wonder why he hates gay people so much. Seriously, with the economy, the job market, and the ever present threat of terrorism, does the fact that I’m married to a man really pose that much of a problem to the future of this country that it’s even an issue in 2012?

This country should be moving forward.

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was rightfully repealed last year. I believe that when a man or woman signs up to serve this country and possibly give their life for the freedoms many of us take for granted, it shouldn’t matter if they are gay or lesbian. While I’ve never been in the military, I can guarantee you that there are easier ways to find a man or woman if you’re gay than enlisting in the military for a date!

Recently, while in New Hampshire campaigning, Santorum made me laugh with his stupidity. Then, I was overcome with sadness with the fact that 25% of the Iowans that caucased last Tuesday voted for Santorum.

He was asked, why doesn’t he believe in equal rights for all Americans and why two men shouldn’t be able to get married in this country. Before you know it, he had this simple equality question turned into polygamy and that if it two men got married, it would be a gateway to having many husbands at the same time.

It’s very interesting that in the spring of last year when Ray and I started talking about getting married and making it legal in Iowa, it never crossed my mind that I could also marry Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Gosling, or James Marsden.

My bottom line for you is that if you’re opposed to marriage equality based on religious regions, focus on your own life and let God make that decision when the time comes. If you’re opposed because you don’t understand it, ask me about it. If you’re opposed to marriage equality just because, go live with Santorum because his gig is about up.

In 2006, Pennsylvania didn’t even want Santorum to return as U.S. Senator and 59% of the great people of the “Keystone State” voted him out of office and now he wants to run this country. No thanks!

    What an ignorant, pathetic man. He is not worthy of this nominating contest, and most certainly too dangerous to be the leader of the free world. It is sad that most Republicans use gay rights as a wedge issue, when I believe that many are indifferent or even supportive of gay causes in their hearts. Mr Santorum is different, however, and I really feel that he would totally support gay rehabilitative therapy if he had the opportunity and mandate. I guess that when all is said and done I’m just grateful that 75% of Iowans DIDN’T vote for this bigot. I suspect that will trend similarly in other future contests. Finally, to all of the straight people out there who defend my rights…Thank you!!
