GOP presidential nominee Rick Santorum, apparently unaware of ironic acronyms, wants you to participate in the Conservatives Unite Moneybomb, or C.U.M.  This is real.

(If you’re having a hard time understanding why this is ironic, Google the word “Santorum”)

Rick! Get a graphic designer who gets irony!

When Rick Santorum was practicing law in Pittsburgh, he represented the World Wrestling Federation in court, claiming that anabolic steroid regulations should not apply to professional wrestling because it is not a sport. In a 2003 interview with AP, Santorum, when asked about male priests sexual abuse on children he said the priests were engaged in a basic homosexual relationship and that he has a problem with homosexuality. He said nothing of the child abuse. Later, he said that he wasn’t trying to relate pedophilia with homosexuality, he was just trying to prove that the government has a right to invade privacy to regulate the sexual behavior of adults.Later that year, Dan Savage, started a blog that defined the word santorum as: the foam up of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex. When you google Santorum, the top result since then has been that definition followed by Senator Rick Santorum. In 2011, Santorum tried to get google to unsuccessfully remove it from the search engine.In 2005, Santorum had a letter he wrote to a Catholic church from 2002 published in the news blaming the liberals, mainly in Boston, for the catholic chuch sex scandal. He, to date, stands by his statements that liberalism causes pedophilia. Santorum does not believe the constitution protects an individuals right to privacy.The Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington, an advocacy group, listed Santorum as one of its “most corrupt politicians” because after taking money from AccuWeather, a private company in his home state that predicts the weather, he tried to pass legislation that prevented the National Weather Service from offering its to the public so they would have to pay for it. Santorum said the people who didn’t listen to the government warnings before Hurricane Katrina should be punished for staying behind.Santorum added a synthetic-fuel tax-credit amendment to a larger bill introduced in the Senate by Chuck Grassley, the Iowa Republican who headed the Senate Finance Committee. Time Magazine called this tax-credit scheme “a multibillion-dollar scam.” The amendment was inserted in the Tax Relief Act of 2006, which provides aid for Hurricane Katrina victims and sets new policies for tax-exempt groups.In 2005, four young women were ejected from a bookstore in Wilmington, Delaware, where Santorum was scheduled for a book signing, after they were overheard expressing opinions critical of the senator. The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit, which was settled in 2007. As a result of the settlement, the Delaware State Police were required to pay legal fees for the plaintiffs and provide training to officers on free-speech rights. The Santorum staff members who requested the ejection were required to apologize and to relinquish their salaries for the event — $2,500.00 — to the plaintiffs in damages. A police official stated that while they had not violated the women’s First Amendment rights, they “decided to settle the matter to avoid the cost of prolonged litigation.”In June 2006, Santorum declared that weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) had been found in Iraq.Santorum is a supporter of the War on Terror and shares the views of neoconservatives and the Bush doctrine in regards to foreign policy. He says the war on Terror can be won and is optimistic about the U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan for the long-term.Santorum voted against the Lautenberg amendment, which would have closed the loophole that allows companies like Halliburton to do business with Iran through their foreign affiliates.During the lame-duck session of the 109th Congress, Santorum was one of only two Senators who voted against confirming the nomination of Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense. Santorum stated that his objection was to Gates’s support for talking with Iran and Syria, because, in Santorum’s view, it would be an error to talk with “radical Islam”.On April 12, 2007, political action committee America’s Foundation, Highmark and a former Highmark vice president were fined by the Federal Election Committee for sponsoring Santorum with corporate money.Santorum informed U.S. Senator John Ensign that Ensign’s affair with a staff member was about to become publicly known. Who is now being investigated by the Seante, FEC, FBI, and DoJ.In 2011 Santorum said McCain, who was tortured as a prisoner of war, did not understand how the “enhanced interrogation” process works.Let’s pass this around and make sure people know who Rick A Santorum really is.
