Rick Santorum is in the news, because he ran Mitt Romney almost to a dead heat in the Iowa caucus. He has been on the edge of my consciousness for a while, mostly because of his extreme opposition to homosexuality. (He has compared it to incest and polygamy.) I had not quite taken in the fact that if he were president, he would have doctors arrested for performing abortions. The Daily Kos has an excellent polemic on the subject here. It's a two minute read, but a tremendous, bracing one.
I don't have the heart to put a picture of Rick Santorum here. I'm going to give you a picture of penguins instead.
Ah, that's better.
