Santorum to ride black helicopters all the way to the White House in 2016

Santorum to ride black helicopters all the way to the White House in 2016

There's been some talk lately about bringing some sanity to the Republican Party after its recent tea-fueled race to the extreme right.

In the other hand, there's Rick Santorum. The ex-senator, ex-presidential wannabe and ex-Philadelphia Inquirer columnist is back, and he's determined to use his new platform at the birther-friendly World Net Daily to keep the GOP firmly planted in Looneyville:

Santorum warned that a United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities treaty adopted in 2006 “has much darker and more troubling implications” than to simply improve the treatment of disabled people in other countries.

The staunchly anti-abortion Republican worried that the treaty would “put the government, acting under U.N. authority, in the position to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them.”

And taking that thought to its absurd conclusion, Santorum suggested that the U.N. treaty would have meant the death of his daughter, who has a rare genetic disorder.

“In the case of our 4-year-old daughter, Bella, who has Trisomy 18, a condition that the medical literature says is ‘incompatible with life,’ would her ‘best interest’ be that she be allowed to die?” he asked.

“Some would undoubtedly say so.”

Some would undoubtedly say that Santorum needs to launch his 2016 campaign for the Oval Office RIGHT NOW! That would be the best political Christmas present a liberal could ask for.
