  TASTE THE RAINBOW

Surgin’ Santorum The Latest Victim Of Glitterbombing Epidemic

 

Frothy candidate Rick Santorum is practically orgasmic over his bump in the polls before this week’s Iowa caucus. Thankfully there was someone to take the wind out of his shorts.

On Friday night, an unnamed man went up to Santorum and shook his hand. Seconds later he pelted the ex-senator with glitter and shouted, “Stop the hate! Taste the rainbow!”

No matter how many of these douchebags get the Rip Taylor treatment, it still never gets old.

Now, does anyone know how you get glitter out of lube?

      Next time we get a Republican in office now we have indefinite detention of Americans without trail thanks to Obama. So how about those alternative parties Queerty?

      I thought it was stupid when it happened to Dan Savage and I think it’s stupid now.

      If a 4 year old walked up to somebody and threw a “glitterbomb” at them and yelled, “Taste the Rainbow!” it might be considered cute, although they’d probably get a spanking for it. When a grown adult acts out like that, it’s just sad.

      Why not just confront the politician man-to-man, tell him you think he’s a nut
      and that his political views are obnoxious. But throwing glitter and “taste the rainbow”? C’mon, grow up.

      I agree with Kieran (and the others who share the sentiment). This isn’t clever, it isn’t funny, and it just perpetuates stereotypes of homosexuals being petty and confrontational. Ask yourself, if a traditional marriage activist “glitterbombed” a gay-rights politician, would you still think it “never gets old”?

      I wonder how long it would take Queerty to cry “hate crime!” if people were doing this to trans activists…

      The glitter thrower needed to start chanting “Stop the hate! stop the lies!” until he got dragged out.

      Santorum is pure slime. When PFLAG set up a meeting with him, he sat down with them and then REFUSED to listen to a word they said. He tried to lecture THEM, and finally he walked out on them, without hearing a single word from the PFLAG parents,who’d hoped to tell him about their gay children’s lives. Santorum is VILE!!

      @Hephaestion: Of course he is vile. And I applaud the PFLAG folks for having the patience to be anywhere near this creep, much less purposefully try to dialogue.

      “Surgin’ Santorum”?

      Ugh… brings a disturbing image to mind.

      If anyone here has surgin’ santorum, RUN TO THE TOILET RIGHT AWAY!

      After that, maybe take an Imodium.

      Randy Rainbow said it best

      “That gay guy who “glitter bombed” Rick Santorum in Iowa makes me grateful that Rick Santorum is protecting me from marrying some queen.”

      You can always thank the bigots that is the GOP base for keeping a candidate like Rick Santorum relevant.

      All of these ghost worshipers are just plain scary. They hear voices, see people who aren’t there telling them things etc. In a perfect world they would be led away in a white coat however in the U.S. they run for President. Very scary indeed.

      If you look at the video, he didn’t seem to really mind and nobody he was talking to later seemed to notice, so the “glitter bombing” was pretty much useless.

      The good news: he’s currently nearly tied with Romney in Iowa. If he hangs in for a while, Romney will have to use Nixon’s “run to the right for the primaries and then run to the left for the election in an attempt to end up in the middle.” The problem: today every obscure speech Romney gives is being recorded by amateurs. The Democrats will be set up for an attack ad in which a cook stands there flipping pancakes while Romney flips positions in a voice overlay. It’ll be hilarious and even if the networks won’t carry it, there is always youtube. Meanwhile, quite a few evangelicals won’t come out to vote in November because of Romney’s religion – they might not be able to convince themselves to vote for Obama, but they sure won’t vote for the “devil”, which is what they think Mormonism is the work of. Meanwhile given their funding for Proposition Eight after being pressured by their church, and given the Mormon Church’s support for a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages, there are cogent reasons to refuse to elect a Mormon to the presidency (According to NPR http://www.npr.org/2011/11/28/142802432/five-things-you-may-not-know-about-mitt-romney it seems that Romney did not actively support Proposition Eight and refused to go along with a Mormon “apostle” who wanted Romney to help get a “Definition of Marriage” amendment passed in Massachusetts, but going along with it would have had a high political cost in that state. Who knows what he’d do if he becomes a U.S. president.)
