Rick Santorum, an odious piece of used toilet paper masquerading as a man, had the gall to stand before the U.S. Senate and make the following pronouncement:
...[W]e shouldn't go mucking around in this institution and changing the way we've done things, particularly when it comes to the balance of power between the three branches of government.
Then the Republican Party shouldn't be "mucking around" with the way the Senate has "done things" for nearly two-hundred years by trying to eliminate the filibuster and stack our courts with radical judicial activists.
If Republicans like Santorum were actually conservatives, they would conserve the right of the minority party to use the filibuster in these dire circumstances. And if a majority of GOP Senators were responsible and trustworthy enough to do the right thing instead of the right-wing thing, to vote against these radical judges, then Democrats wouldn't have to filibuster. These seven extremists should never have been nominated in the first place, let alone renominated.
But Santorum's hypocrisy doesn't stop there: Santorum had the stones to compare the Democratic Party to Adolf Hitler. Let's a get a few things straight here:
The Nazis primarily targeted Jews; Republicans primarily target homosexuals.
The Nazis worked to eliminate political parties that opposed them, just as Republicans are trying to eliminate the Democratic Party.
The Nazis assembled a massive war machine to illegally invade other countries, and then claimed that their wars were preemptive; Republicans mirrored this behavior by invading Iraq under false pretenses.
The Nazis routinely held rallies where only party members were allowed entry; George Bush holds rallies where only Republicans are allowed to attend.
The Nazis venemously attacked the press and academia, falsely-accusing both of being biased against the party; Republicans have spent thirty years doing the same thing, trying to discredit the two groups that have exposed the GOP's policies and behavior to be self-contradictory, immoral and anti-American simply by telling the truth.
In other words: There is one political party in the U.S. that has a great deal in common with Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist Party, but it ain't the Dems.
E-mail Rick Santorum or call his Washington, D.C. office at 202-224-6324, and let him know how little you think of the way he's behaved today.
