‘Colbert Report’: Rick Santorum on Gays and Bla People

Posted on Jan 10, 2012

Rick Santorum likes it “hot and heavy and strictly missionary.” His truth, that is—get your mind out of the godless liberal gutter. And Santorum is spreading the word in nuanced and original speeches about gay parenting and racial difference, for just two handy wedge-issue examples, around the country as he jacks up the campaign rhetoric. Good thing Stephen Colbert is paying attention, as no good GOP deed goes unpunished on “The Colbert Report,” as demonstrated by this clip from Monday night’s show.  —KA

Holy crap,could Santorum be an easier target for ridicule.Where do you find these guys?His reality almost goes beyond a SNL skit.Too funny if it wasn’t so sadly true.
