I Write Letters

[Trigger warning for violence.]

Rick Santorum,

Last night in the GOP debate you said:

"Not only have I been consistently pro-life, I have not just taken the pledge, but I've taken the bullets to go out there and fight for this and lead on those issues."

People disagreeing with you on the issue is not the same as being shot. People thinking you're a hideous, woman-hating, policy-horror-show is not the same as being shot. Yes, you were using a rhetorical device, we know. Still? Completely and totally inappropriate to the point of being extremely fucking offensive.

You see, people who go out there and fight for women are the ones who are shot. Actually shot--and sometimes actually killed. Also? Being shot is not the only danger they face.

So you? Can go fuck right off you reprehensible, morally reprobate douchecanoe.

With extreme disgust,
