Rick Santorum Defends Rick Perry's Gay-Alcoholism Comparison, Says Hillary Clinton Isn't 'Bling' Enough

In an interview with USA Today’s Capital Download today, Rick Santorum defended his one-time — and possibly future — presidential rival Rick Perry’s comparison of homosexuality to alcoholism, arguing that homosexuality is indeed a choice. Santorum, who has notoriously attempted to explain his opposition to marriage equality by speaking about beer and paper towels, told USA Today that while politicians should avoid making comparisons, Perry’s larger point was “accurate.” Back in 2011, the former Pennsylvania senator back in 2011 insisted that...

Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s comparison of homosexuality to alcoholism this week was widely regarded as a major political misstep … except, of course, by the fervently anti-gay pundits on MattBarber’s website BarbWire. BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen writes today that Perry’s comments defending the Texas GOP’s support for ex-gay therapy “demonstrate his resolute refusal to back down to the bullies of Big Gay” and should “inspire a few other Republicans to grow a spine.” “That’s what presidential poise under pressure looks like,...

Remember all those stories about Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s “extreme” image rebranding? How’d that turn out? Wisconsin Republican Glenn Grothman wants to stop his state from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples: “Our country is declining on an almost daily basis. The Office of Vital Records has no business participating in legitimizing illegal and immoral marriages.” Televangelist Rick Joyner likens David Brat to the “greatest prophets” who arose “when ancient Israel fell into its deepest debauchery....

Surprise! Yesterday, the same Republican politician who tried to save his foundering presidential campaign with a gay-baiting TV ad defended ex-gay therapy and compared homosexuality to alcohol abuse. Speaking at a summit in California, Texas Gov. Rick Perry responded to questions about the Texas Republican Party’s endorsement of ex-gay therapy in its new far-right platform by arguing that homosexuality is like alcoholism: “Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I... MORE >

Looks like House Republicans’ latest stand against Obamacare will include an amendment “fixing” a manufactured problem. It’s always nice to see Rick Santorum, of all people, lecture Republicans on how to win elections. Even Texas First Lady Anita Perry considers abortion to be “a woman’s right”; we wonder if her husband Rick Perry will now give another condescending lecture on the issue. Rick Scarborough hails Tom DeLay as a “modern day Job.” Linda Harvey claims same-sex couples are... MORE >

Steve Deace is none too impressed with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' latest stunt. Similarly, Glenn Beck was none too impressed with Nancy Mace, who intends to challenge Sen. Lindsey Graham in next year’s South Carolina Republican primary. Speaking of South Carolina, it looks like Rep. Steve King will be heading there as he contemplates a possible presidential run. Rick Perry is also contemplating a possible presidential run ... and it looks like his memory has not improved very much since his last debacle. Finally, Bryan Fischer is positively giddy over the...
