It takes a moron

Hillary's village seems to have found its idiot: Here's a sweet review of Rick Santorum's new book, which includes these pearls:

"The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong."

But unlike abortion today, in most states even the slaveholder did not have the unlimited right to kill his slave."

"Respect for stay-at-home mothers has been poisoned by a toxic combination of the village elders' war on the traditional family and radical feminism's misogynistic crusade to make working outside the home the only marker of social value and self-respect."

Mm hm ... thanks for clearing all that up, Rick.

Also, do check out the reader reviews at Amazon. My favorite is simply entitled "Political Suicide".

And no, I haven't read it ... fairness will have to wait until it comes to Buck-a-Book.

(Thanks to Political Wire.)

LMAO - two unrelated Rick postings on our blogs at the same time, and both of them stupider than the other one - figure THAT one out.

I bet I do win that contest in the end, though.

Ok, the guys a nut, but there is some truth to the part about mothers feeling a stigma from feminists if they chose ( and can afford) to stay at home.
Of course financial reasons are out of this equation. Thiose who truly choose to stay at home.
