It’s not like you can start going by Dick Santorum


Just like Halloween candy in your local drug store, it seems like the political jabs of presidential candidates appear earlier and earlier every (four) year(s).  One name on the Republican ballot you might recognize is Rick Santorum.  You might remember Rick Santorum as the former Senator from Pennsylvania.  Although, if Google search results are  any indication, you most likely are familiar with his name as a result of a 2003 contest that Dan Savage, columnist of Savage Love, ran after the former Senator said some particularly nasty things about homosexuality and the gay community.  In the contest, Savage asked his readers to come up with a new definition (involving a sexual act) of “Santorum.”  If you want to know what reader-submitted definition won, just Google it.  Former Senator Santorum has now come to recognize what he calls his “Google Problem.”

Well, it’s 2011, and Rick Santorum has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2012 Presedential Republican nomination.  In response, Dan Savage has issued an offer of a détente of sorts:  Savage won’t redefine “Rick” as something even more prurient if the former Senator agrees not to attack the gay community during his campaign.  The offer, issued via video, is actually quite funny and features several concerned Ricks. 

I can’t get the damn video to embed, so you’ll just have to click on this

Seems fair enough.  Although it doesn’t seem that Santorum will be backing off

Oh, and I saw Dan Savage’s book, “The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided To Go Get Pregnant,” on the train the other day.  Pick it up if you support family values.
