Rick Santorum Is An Incredible Asshole, Feb. 10 Edition

Hey, want to guess how Rick Santorum responded to the news that the Pentagon is easing some gender restrictions for women in combat, opening up nearly 14,000 of the 250,000 positions they’re currently unable to obtain or advance to? Oh and also wanna guess how he feels about opening up any more of those positions? Great! I’ll wait.

BOOM! Didja guess he was going to be a crazy ignorant garbage monster about it? Did you also guess that he clarified this statement by saying he meant “men’s emotional issues, not women,” meaning that he’s worried that men will protect the women rather than fight the bad guys? That they, “may be more concerned with protecting someone who may be in a vulnerable position, a woman in a vulnerable position.” CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE IT? At this point, cataloging all of the ridiculous hateful nonsense that has come out of Rick Santorum’s mouth seems even a little unnecessary. I mean, of course it isn’t, because he is still a monster running for President of the United States of America, and maybe we should be cataloging it more, actually?, but I mean HOLY COW is this guy is just a straight-up dumb asshole! Case EXTRA closed! What I’m curious about, though, is how he’d feel about gay women in combat? Do the two negatives cancel each other out? What do you think, Rick? You gross jerk? Helloooooo?
