Dan Savage: 1. Rick Santorum: 2.
Santorum claims his ‘filthy’ Google results ‘have an impact on the country’
Kase Wickman | September 20th, 2011
. . Sex columnist Dan Savage famously campaigned to redefine the then-senator’s name in 2003. Nearly a decade later, the effects of Savage’s prank remain: the top Google result for “santorum” is spreadingsantorum.com, which defines “santorum” as “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum.”
Rick’s known about this for years, Dan epically pranked him. Call it a flit-er bombing.
But Frothy is upset now? His campaign’s tanking, I take it.
“I suspect if something was up there like that about Joe Biden, they’d get rid of it,” Santorum said. “If you’re a responsible business, you don’t let things like that happen in your business that have an impact on the country.”
“To have a business allow that type of filth to be purveyed through their website or through their system is something that they say they can’t handle but I suspect that’s not true.”
Through their website? Their system? Google doesn’t own the intertubes, Rickie. They merely monitor the traffic. And of your claim that the paramount and butt-centric ‘santorum’ has a negative “impact upon the country”? I am reminded of Artie Ziff, after a prom-pawing of Marge Simpson:
“Marge, I would appreciate it if you didn’t tell anyone about my busy hands. Not so much for myself, but I am so respected, it would damage the town to hear it.”
Reasonable readers would assume the former senator is moronic, but he’s merely Medieval. In February, he allied his campaign with The Crusades. Seriously:
Rick Santorum launched into a scathing attack on the left, charging . . that the history of the Crusades has been corrupted by “the American left who hates Christendom.”
No moron would take sides.
