The current crop of U.S. politicians are so venal, opportunistic and sheltered from the real world that they no longer rate the respect traditionally accorded public officials in this nation. However, their shortcomings and excesses do make for great political comedy. 

Case in point, Republican presidential wannabee Rick Santorum. The former Pennsylvania senator is a religious nut who is so anti-abortion and anti-woman that he’s jumped the shark into being pro-rape

The folks at Second City couldn’t resist such a tempting target and have put together a hilarious video skit about the kind of women who support Santorum. The video segment, which is called “Women For Santorum,” has already run up more than 120,000 YouTube views in just two weeks and seems destined for viral status.

“I have a busy work day,” says one satirical Santorum supporter. “I make tough calls for my team all day long. So when it comes to my body I’d rather someone else did the heavy thinking.”

“Rick says rape victims should accept what God’s given them,” another supporter says as she waves to a neighbor. “So when life gives you rape, you make rape-aid.”

As crazy as it sounds, Santorum really does believe that a woman should have to carry her rapist’s fetus to delivery and raise it as her own. The 54-year Pennsylvania Representative, who is riding in the backseat of the Republican presidential clown car, is either batshit crazy or so unprincipled that he’ll do anything to mobilize the GOP’s batshit crazy conservative core.

In short,The Partisans Santorum is the kind of fatally flawed candidate that comedians live for. He actually advised women to “make the best out of a bad situation” when asked about his opposition to abortion in instances of rape by CNN.

Yes, this kind of shameless pandering to religious conservatives is what passes for leadership in America these days. If Satan worshipers voted as a group in sufficient numbers to get Santorum into the White House he’d probably be wearing a pay-to-play pentagram around his neck.

Presumably, if Santorum is ever imprisoned for political corruption he’ll make the best of the situation by donning a wig and lipstick for his cellmate and sagging his pants.

Because, as one of the Women For Santorum, put it: “something that someone forcibly puts into your body is a gift from God.”
