''When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political, and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm."Yes, apparently the 3rd ranking Republican in the Senate blames the city of Boston itself for the Catholic Church's international priest pedophile scandal problem.
If that isn't absurd/outrageous/ridiculous/insane enough for you, when a Santorum aide was recently asked to clarify Santorum's statement about the historic American city, he replied:
''It's an open secret that you have Harvard University and MIT that tend to tilt to the left in terms of academic biases," said Robert Traynham, the Santorum aide. ''I think that's what the senator was speaking to."If that was truly the case, does that mean that Harvard and MIT should be shut down if they are contributing to the molestation and rape of children at the hands of Catholic priests? Wouldn't it be gravely irresponsible to not do something about the scourge of liberalism that apparently forces Catholic priests to molest children and then makes the Church cover it up? So it's no longer the devil that makes people do bad, evil things, it's liberals? Or maybe Santorum believes that Satan is a card-carrying Democrat?
Hopefully someone will ask Santorum something along those lines and he'll speak his dirty, ugly little mind, making a bigger ass of himself than he has ever before. Perhaps he doesn't really want to be re-elected next year?
Seriously, as a senator you can't go around disparaging whole entire cities for the sick, twisted problems of your own freaking church. Santorum owes Harvard, MIT and the all of Boston a serious apology. They might even be able to look to Bush too, for he recently helped Santorum raise $1.5 million dollars for he re-election campaign last month. If Santorum refuses to apologize and recant these statements Boston should somehow collectively sue both him and his office for defamation of character.
C'mon Pennsylvania, it's time to toss out this pathetic excuse for a senator. You can do much better.
