    I thought I couldn't have any less respect for professional bigot Rick Santorum after listening to his endless hate-vomit against gay Americans, but after reading this, my opinion of him is now even lower.
    He's spent most of the last year criss-crossing Iowa pushing his political career while he has a terminally ill toddler at home in Pennsylvania, who apparently could have only weeks to live. Oh, and his main priority (after demonizing gays) is dismantling Obama's health care reforms, which means other children who have the same condition can be dropped by their insurance companies.

    So sad. So sick.

    Absolutely nothing could get me to vote for Rick Santorum for anything. However, I do not begrudge him running for President just because he has a very sick child. Would him NOT running make the child any healthier?

    Just because he lost his last senate bid it doesn't mean that he couldn't ascend to the nominee. Think RMN 1962. It can happen. However, at this time I don't think I would vote for him. I'd probably just sit it out.
