Let me be as clear as I can about what’s so wrong with this: it isn’t just that Rick Santorum is a racist and homophobic bigot, we already know that.
The larger problem is that he does this because it is working. He is now the leading not-Romney GOP candidate. His base LIKES this. The GOP is clearly branding itself as the party of hate. The mainstream media won’t attack this hate. Why won’t WE?
How far down this awful road do we let this go before we speak out?
