This is why “they” hate us: Please stop talking, Rick Santorum

I was hoping to make it a whole week without getting any Santorum on my blog.  Most of what he says is more of the same stupidity, and his strength in being able to say really dumb and offensive stuff has been plenty well documented without any need for my comment.  But this one from ABC’s This Week sees him entering into new offensive, and frankly dangerous territory.  No longer is he restraining his comments to subjugating American women and denigrating the dignity of American homosexuals.  He has reached out into the tinderbox that is America’s entanglement in Afghanistan and applied the match that is his thoughtless commentary.  For god’s sake, shut the hell up, Rick.  (Oh, and I know that Gingerich has been saying essentially the same thing, but fortunately the press has chosen to largely move on from his buffoonery.)

Rick Santorum: Obama Wrong to Apologize for Koran Burning by George Stephanopoulos, from ABC News, Feb. 26, 2012

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum slammed President Obama for apologizing to Afghans earlier this week for the recent burning of Korans at a U.S. military base this morning on “This Week.”

“There was nothing deliberately done wrong here. This was something that happened as a mistake. Killing Americans in uniform is not a mistake, ” said Santorum. “Say it’s unfortunate…but to apologize for something that was not an intentional act is something that the president of the United States in my opinion should not have done.”
