welfare queen spotted in pa
thanks to michael berube for blogging about everyone's favorite senator, rick santorum. my pal rick has called for folks who stayed in new orleans to be fined or charged with a crime:
I mean, you have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving.
he, at the same time, is collecting $38,000/year (thus far totaling more than $100,000) from the state of Pennsylvania to send his kids to charter school so he can live in d.c. without paying the private school tuition himself.
this quote makes me quite proud to be an animal and not a santorum:
My colleague Senator John Ensign of Nevada told me a story that epitomizes the selfishness of our culture: When I was a teenager, I had a sticker in my car with a picture of a bear scratching himself on the tree, and under it was the saying, If it feels good, do it!
That was the motto of the '60s and the '70s, and certainly it is the motto today. The image of the bear scratching himself highlights a view of human beings as animals, and that people should do what pleases them at the moment without a thought to the broader long-term consequences of their actions. Rick Santorum, Heritage Foundation Lecture #804
glad you're up for election in 2006, rick. we can speak our minds, too. it feels good, do it.
