Dubious Honor

Introducing The Douches Of The Year: The Republican Presidential Candidates

Rick Santorum

The sexual synonym has been bouncing around at the bottom of the polls, but it’s not for want of trying to leverage his homophobia for votes. Santorum insulted a gay soldier during a presidential debate, suggested using anti-LGBT rhetoric to attract Hispanic voters and opined that comparing gay marriage to heterosexual marriage was like comparing a paper towel to a napkin. (Don’t worry if you didn’t get that last one. Nobody did.)

Still, he’s not getting any love from the Republican base. Apparently, fewer party members appreciate a good homosexuality=bestiality analogy than we thought.
