I'm Rubber, You're Glue

It's probably too much to expect logic from a man who brings a dead preemie home to "meet" his brothers and sisters, who now have yet one more thing to talk to their analysts about when they grow up ("Doc, sure he screwed up the country, but try living with the bastard...."). But Senator Rick Santorum isn't one to let us down when there's a chance to amaze us with his outrageous statements.

Today, during the ramp-up to the wonderful world of the nuclear option (minority parties need not apply, show up, be heard, or be considered), as the Republicans are prepared to flex their power in a grab for even yet more power, he turns the whole thing around, and accuses the Democrats of trying to, well, it seems he thinks that by holding onto the one slim Constitutional way that they can actually be an opposition party and stop a tiny percentage of right-wing activist judges (that is what they are, after all), the Democrats are trying to TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!

What else could he mean by making this statement, whose offensiveness is only topped by its absolute lack of logic:

The audacity of some members to stand up and say, how dare you break this rule. It's the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942, "I'm in Paris. How dare you invade me. How dare you bomb my city? It's mine."

The Democrats are the one's acting like an occupational force? If nothing else, Santorum makes one mighty Exhibit A against any notions of "intelligent design."

Actually, as bizarre as it sounds, the practice of photographing, holding and introducing to siblings a stillborn child is considered essential to the grieving process by most psychologists (see "What to Expect When You're Expecting"). What sickens me is that the entire process was made public and used to advance a political agenda.

I defer to the person who not only is a parent, so knows better than I do, but also is stuck with Santorum as her senator.

It still seems mighty creepy to me.
