Quote of the Day

image of Rick Santorum grinning smugly, to which I have added text reading: 'I am just very, very happy about what I genius I am.'

"I think you'll see, hopefully, a chastened Supreme Court is not going to make the same mistake in the (current) cases as they did in Roe v. Wade. I'm hopeful the Supreme Court learned its lesson about trying to predict where the American public is going on issues and trying to find rights in the Constitution that sit with the fancy of the day."—Former Republican Presidential Candidate and Professor of Smartology at Genius University Rick Santorum, on whether the Supreme Court will rule in favor of marriage equality.

Santorum is currently chillaxing in Iowa, but "I haven't made any decisions" about running again in 2016.

Because I am generous, I will offer him some free advice: Don't.

Although, if he decides not to take my great advice and runs anyway, then I offer this suggestion: Familiarize yourself with the concepts of "tyranny of the majority" and "rights." And, given that there is majority support for legal abortion and marriage equality anyway, it might be a wise course of action to take refresher courses on "polling" and "majority," too.
