Rick Santorum, hard-core, anti-choice candidate, is married to a hard-core, anti-choice woman who dated and lived with an abortion provider. They incessantly preach their “pro-life” message, but neither is commenting on Mrs. S’s previous position on women’s reproductive rights or what either of them thinks about her “living in sin” with said doctor.
That’s the height of hypocrisy. Personally, I see nothing wrong with her previous relationship (well, I am a wee bit surprised at the vast age difference), but I see a whole lot wrong with their double standard and their unwillingness to answer to it.
Just as I finished the post about the Santorums’ silence about a subject that clearly means so much to them, and then another one about the hypocritical about-face of Jon Huntsman, I was linked to this, via Think Progress:
A Georgia Republican who wants all welfare reciepients subject to drug tests failed one himself after he ran a red light on Friday morning. The Atlanta Journal Constiution has the story on State Rep. Kip Smith (R).
He was driving under the influence, with a blood alcohol level of .091., which is above the legal limit of .08.
Not only that, he endangered lives, which isn’t exactly taking the moral high ground that the GOP so frantically likes to claim is theirs and theirs alone.
The blatant hypocrisy of the Republican party is no surprise. What is a surprise is that voters either don’t care or are unaware (read: uninformed, misinformed) of it.
