Rick Santorum Says 'Will & Grace' to Blame for Gay Marriage: VIDEO


Tea Party Report's Susie Sampson posts a clip from a closed Q&A session at the recent CPAC conference in which Rick Santorum pins the blame for the demise of the entire "traditional marriage" movement on Will & Grace. It's actually something he's said before in other contexts.

See what a few gay people on the street think of that, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Hopefully, he will soon be falling into the dustbin of history.

  4. And Ricky will be to blame for his own children's sadness in life.

    If you know what I mean....

    gotta love CPAC, though. anti-gays? a-ok! racists? a-ok!

    gay republicans? no thanks.

    face it Gay republicans, your party hates you even more than you hate yourselves, as if that was even possible.

  5. I think I agree with him. Hooray for "Will & Grace" -- job well done!

  6. Yes, Rick you caught us. Will and Grace was our secret plan.

  7. Frothy discovered that Will and Grace was only one of the Gay Agenda items we employed to brainwash Umerica. You caught us Frothy-
    (and who says you are intellectually challenged? Your brain cells work overtime.)

  8. There are no endings or beginnings. Stonewall? Will & Grace? The friend of Dr. Hooker who had her rethink the idea of homosexuality as an illness? Lawrence? Romer? Safe and reliable contraception? The Protestant Reformation? Polyester fabrics?

    However, if Santorum wants to blame Will and Grace, then thanks to everyone involved in Will and Grace. It was a delightful show, and if it forwarded civil rights in the US, so much the better!

  9. Well, this is gonna be how Frothy Mix continues to make a living I guess. No doubt he plans a White House run in 2016. I don't know if the man is as stupid as we think he is, but he is certainly evil. I wish he'd go away, but he won't. Not any time soon.

  10. Is there no end to this man's stupidity.

  11. I hope this doesn't date me, but isn't this the same story as Dan Quayle blaming Murphy Brown for single mothers being okay?

    Of course, Rick Santorum is no Dan Quayle - one is worse than the other, but I'm confused as to which is which.

  12. Really? An average comedy to blame? Stupid.

  13. If I thought he was right I'd stucco over my butthole.

    But he isn't right. What's worse locally is ALL the guys are online are married. Their wives must be thrilled.

  14. Attack those 1990s, Rick! Attack them!

    Jeez. At least when I accuse Republicans of McCarthyism I know it's a historical event!

  15. Art is not just a mirror held up to society - it is the hammer that smashes glass ceilings.

    His point is merely this - truth in art is to blame for lies in religion dying away.

    oh, DARN.

  16. MTV's The Real World did much more to open the minds of Americans to gays and lesbians, I think, because it depicted real people (Norm, Pedro, Danny, et al.) struggling to live as LGBT folks.

  17. Every gay man is now forced to marry Karen Walker.

    Posted by: Sam | Mar 29, 2013 3:23:49 PM

  18. Well this further proves Rick Santorum has zero authority to talk about gay issues. A matter he has not taken the time and effort to begin to understand.

    Posted by: Jay | Mar 29, 2013 3:28:47 PM

  19. Will & Grace did teach me how to fabulous thanks to Karen Walker!

  20. and a broken condom is probably responsible for old frothy mix

    Posted by: walter | Mar 29, 2013 3:49:46 PM

  21. Rick probably thinks the show is still in production.

    Posted by: Jack M | Mar 29, 2013 3:53:25 PM

  22. That's it, game over... FrothyMix is now Dan Quayle...

    Posted by: talibaptist | Mar 29, 2013 3:57:35 PM

  23. Poor Frothy just doesn't know what to do with himself. What MUST his kids think that they dare not speak?

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Mar 29, 2013 4:12:11 PM

  24. It's funny that he's placing blame of a made up problem on a fictional show when his own marriage is probably a just a facade.

  25. If Will & Grace was responsible for ANYTHING it is showing a section of middle America that gay people are not that different from themselves.

    It also helped paved the way for gay characters in sitcoms and drama.

    But if we are REALLY to give credit to a TV show, TRUE credit goes to...

    SOAP (1977) for the character of

    An American Family (1973) documentary about the Loud family featured gay son Lance Loud.
