Rick Santorum Calls Dan Savage 'Below the Dignity of Anybody': VIDEO


Rick Santorum atttended the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado over the weekend, but wouldn't address Dan Savage's recent video in which he threatened to redefine Santorum's first name if he continues to bash gay people, according to Think Progress reporter Scott Keyes.

Said Santorum when asked about Savage:

"I’m not going to talk about Dan Savage. He’s below the dignity of anybody. Thank you."


Santorum is, however, perfectly willing to address Savage's dignity and his Google problem when asking people for money.

As you may recall, Santorum has compared same-sex marriage to sex with dogs, has said that it's "common sense" to keep gays from marrying and adopting children, wants to reinstate the ban on gays in the military, and has said that gays shouldn't have the "privilege of government benefits" offered to heterosexual couples, yet Santorum claims he's not a homophobe.

  2. Dan savage is a total sexy stud!!!

    And it's really beneath the country's dignity to give santorum-slime ANY platform whatsoever. But soul-murderers should be exposed, and santorum-slime wants to murder my, dan savage's, and every other gay person's soul. SAntorum-slime doesn't just refer to Rick santorum, but includes the bachmans, Peter labarbera, James Dobson, and others. All those who feel like they can only maintain their own personal dignity by desecrating the very existence of gay people as subhuman and "beneath the dignity of everyone [who cAlls themselves straight or happens to be heterosexual] is by definition santorum-slime.

    Go have sex with your dog, santorum sicko, or put another dead embryo in your child's bed, psycho-parent. But leave gay people alone already!! They tend to be better people than u, better parents than u, worthy of greater respect than u, but u insist on denigrating them as deserving subhuman status.

    Stay out of public life, santorum-slime! Or have a watershed moment where u admit ur bigotry was wrong. Only then can u stop hearing about how slimy-repulsive u are... You did this all to urself, santorum-slime. When will u realize that?!!

  3. "I'm not going to talk about Dan Savage. He's below the dignity of anybody."

    This is code for "I can't match wits with him, so I'm going to dismiss him outright and make it look like I'm above it all."

    Nice try Santorum. No one's buying it.

  4. Am I the only person that thinks the woman in the photo above Santorum's left shoulder looks like Santorum in drag?

  7. Santorum will never be elected to anything but bigot of the year-I really can't imagine anybody crazy enough to put him on the ticket even as vice president- and I doubt he is a closet case- he is just using this anti gay hate to get some money from these bigot fools

  11. I don't understand why Dan Savage gets a bad rap by some. He's better than most & articulate against our many enemies.

  12. The day Rick Santorum disrespected a soldier on the front lines in Iraq (at the GOP debates in Orlando) is when most Americans, at least Americans who have a brain, lost ALL respect for Santorum. Santorum is not Presidential, by his actions has NO respect for our military members and should drop out of the race immediately! Santorum needs to disapear!!
