"Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is ardently anti-gay and has an acute talent for tapping into the homophobic imagination of social conservatives. 'Man on child,' 'man on dog,' incest, 'priests with 3-year-olds,' polygamy, the welfare of children, the decline of Western civilization -- if it’s in the vocabulary of anti-gay hysteria, Santorum has been there, done that. As a result, he’s become the target of a Google bomb ... that successfully redefined 'santorum' as a substance most straight people probably didn’t know existed and most gay men never thought to name. ... But hey, shit happens -- and now Santorum is widely considered a joke." (06/06/11)
