    Quote of the Day – Rick Santorum Edition 


    Rick Santorum on Alan Colmes apology regarding his comments on how he mourned his child.

    I am glad that you think so Senator.  Does Mr. Colmes really have a heart?  After those comments I have to wonder.  You are a class act Mr. Santorum.  I wouldn’t have been nearly as kind.

    How Low Can We Go? 

    It seems pretty darn low.  Lower than we should be going.  The day started out the news that the ever sensitive Mr. Alan Colmes went after Rick Santorum about how he and his wife decided to mourn the loss of their newborn baby, Gabriel.  So of course the press has jumped all over it.  I have been reading some different news accounts of the back and forth between Colmes and Rich Lowry who rightly pointed out that Colmes hit way below the belt bringing this up.  Let’s take a look at who our voting public is:

    Santorum has been playing his fetal corpse shtick in front of audiences for years. He thinks it works in the polls. Others think it shows he is too unstable to govern. Besides, he couldn’t let Newt get away with performing the only crocodile tears act in Iowa this year.

    I don’t understand why Santorum didn’t have it stuffed so he could use it as a prop on the campaign trail. Why not keep it home for a week, or a year, or celebrate Christmas with it?

    I’m not picking on the poor little baby, but on his father who shamelessly exploits the tragedy for political gain instead of talking about the issues, like why he endorsed pro-abortion Arlen Specter in 2004 who voted for ObamaCare or why he endorsed pro-flipflop-anti-abortion Mitt RomneyCare in 2008.

    Rick tried to keep it at home longer, until he caught his housekeeper, Margarita, vacuuming the dust off of it.

    “Lowry called Colmes’ description of the ordeal and bringing it up “a cheap shot”
    so now pointing out irrational behavior in the candidates is wrong – this was a psychotic act – taking a dead baby home to “prove” something to little children is sick –
    if some welfare mother did this – they would take her kids & lock her up –
    the santorums are sick –
    infected with XIANITY = god delusions !!

    Oh my God! Imagine if Obama brought his dead newborn home and him and Michelle cuddled with the cold corpse for a few hours! The decision to elect the president is dependant on one thing above everything else (not including those who will vote for someone just because he is a republican), his ability to act rationally in hectic crises. If this weird and demented act of affection proves anything at all, it is that Santorm obviously breaks very easily. Americans this is not the dude you want with his fingertip over the red button in the oval office.

    We are so screwed in this country.  People are just evil.  Look, I would not have handled it the way the Santorum’s did, but I am not going to judge them.  They did the best that they could in an extremely difficult and painful situation.  There is no greater pain than the loss of a child.  Leave the man and his family alone about this topic.  You want to go after him, ask him about his backing of The Patriot Act and No Child Left Behind.

    This is why I don’t like candidates that have young children.  His littlest children have no way of dealing with this horror.

      A.C. is a despicable person, very representative of many on the left; I take it that is his purpose in FOX`s “Fair and Balanced” approach to news coverage. He disgusts me !

      People act in a wide variety of unusual ways in times of mourning; let`s not hold that against them as long as it doesn`t cross the line of legality and common decency ! They needed some time and privacy that only there home could provide; anywhere in a hospital would have had some element of “could ya hurry up, we need to use this room !” Fer cryin` out loud !

      Many, many good potential statesmen refuse to run for political office and for good reason; they don`t want to endure (as Rush puts it) “the public anal exam” !

      Recently, I saw a letter to Dear Abby in which the writer asked her how to have a family tree search done without incurring the high cost. Her reply; “Run for political office as a Republican !” Yep, that`ll do it !

      People used to have their dear departed loved ones lie in state inside their homes, sometimes for days, so that friends and family could pay their final respects and reminisce about the person’s life or pray over them, it was called a “wake” (or in the case of my ancestors, you drank a lot of booze while doing any or all of the above and it was called an “Irish wake”) and it was a common practice. In fact, we still do these things, only they are now mostly done inside of funeral homes (at HUGE expense to the grieving family, BTW), but it is still called a wake. Has Alan Colmes never heard of a wake? There were other children in the family who loved their new baby brother long before he was born, the hospital said it might help the children to process their grief if they could see and spend some time with their little baby brother before he had to be buried. The only thing “sick”, “twisted” or “crazy” about any of this is the evil and disgusting way that the leftist ghouls are beating up on the Santorum family for how they mourned their dear beloved little baby who passed away. They did not do anything illegal, the hospital allowed them to do this, maybe the hospital thought it better this way than to bring all of the children to the hospital, I don’t know, but the fact of the matter is that people do spend time with their departed loved ones, it was NOT that long ago when it WAS traditionally done IN THEIR HOMES, it is only fairly recent that wakes for the dead have been held more usually in funeral homes. Alan Colmes and the leftist d-bags who are saying such disgusting things are ghouls, they are monsters, and they are hardcore jackasses. Fox News sucks because they won’t fire the pig.
