Santorum: Looks Like the Sweater’s Come Off

True Rick

Seems that Rick Santorum was such a genial fellow — until it came time for his fifteen minutes. First came the racial slur (who know “blah” was a synonym for “black”?). Then, there were these strange events where Santorum asks students attending a college convention what’s wrong with polygamy if gays are allowed to marry, then he later argues that the American Psychological Association isn’t a credible research reference when it comes to the well being of kids with gay parents.

As you know, I’m especially interested in body language that captures someone’s public personality at a different angle. This screen shot was captured during the college conference. Looks like the sweater’s come off.

    Rick Santorum would be decrying the Supreme Court ruling of Loving v. Virginia if it had just happened.

    Mr. Sweater only wants to be in control.

    Ah, yes! It’s the new look of the Compassionate Christian Conservative. 
     
    You’re interested in body language that captures someone’s public personality?  Forget the sweater; he needs to wear a giant condom on his head, even if he is against birth control.

    Frothy Rick considering a presidential bid is another wonderful display of GOP (“Grand Old Past”) ignorance of reality.
