Rick Santorum Aborts Presidential Campaign from Ashley Judd

10 Things Rick Santorum Has Time to Do Now That He’s Quit

1. Sew the sleeves back on his sweaters.

2. Start a rebuttal campaign against Dan Savage to make “savage” mean “fierce, uncivilized, or rude.” Buy a dictionary. Declare himself successful.

3. Unclench a few muscles, maybe.

4. Finally send Rick Perry that ambiguously flirty email that’s been in his drafts since last June.

5. Pull a series of “Parent Trap”-style pranks to get Church and State back together.

  What’s even better; he says leave the science of climate change to scientists. Even though the majority of climatologists believe climate change is real, many Republicans routinely dismiss them. Way to double-down with ignorance and hypocrisy, Ricky!

There are two different tribes of Christians, I think: Old Testament Christians and New Testament Christians. I have come to the realization that my life-long problem with Christianity is really just with the former group – the ones who favor the book where you can’t actually find Christ, even as a minor character. The ones whose justifying citations come from a book where human sacrifice is an unquestioned test of fealty. I call this tribe Chinos (Christians-In-Name-Only).

I understand the historical and political reasons why Christians included the Old Testament as part of their sacred texts but I have never understood why it was accepted spiritually. The God of the Old Testament is such a different God than the God of the New Testament. He’s vengeful, unmerciful, and cruel – Sauron of the desert. Whenever Chinos need to justify their bigotry, vengence, and cruelty they can easily find it in their book. Down through the ages, the apologists for slavery, sexual discrimination, war, genocide have always been able to find succor from that “good” book. 

Now that the political season is suddenly upon us, and the podiums are filled by those who have passed the perfunctory Christian litmus test, it would be of value to ask what kind of Christians they really are. What tribe do they belong to? What book do they favor? When I look around all I see are Chinos.

Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama… [he later clarified] On the issue of health care. That’s what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that… I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare.

Rick Santorum’s Stylish Communications Director

Meet Hogan Gidley. Don’t blame him for those sweater vests.

Hogan Gidley bows his head over three egg whites scrambled dry with cheddar cheese and prays. It’s been less than 48 hours since his boss, Rick Santorum, dropped out of the race, and he’s had an intense two days, trekking from South Carolina to Washington to New York back to Washington again; enduring the lack of hot water at his Fairfax hotel; yukking it up with Alex Wagner and Michael Steele at the MSNBC studios in New York; and fielding countless calls from the press. Now he’s sitting at an unfinished wood table in Le Pain Quotidien in Dupont Circle for brunch. If any of this is wearying, it’s not evident in his dress: He is wearing a chambray blue denim Ralph Lauren sport coat, white linen pocket square, monogrammed blue and red striped button down and black silk knot cufflinks; khakis, saddle brown loafers (no socks), also by Ralph Lauren, and a taupe Sea Island cap pulled over his wispy brown hair.
