Santorum Froths in New Hampshire: Gay Marriage Boner

So Rick Santorum has dug himself in deeper! And also blew it as he was speaking before a crowd of college Republicans in Concord.

Today’s was one of series of rapid-fire, soon-to-be-patented “Santorum boners,” which have slipped from the candidate’s lips. On Wednesday night, he lamely tried to explain away the

make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money

comment he made in Iowa by telling John King that

In fact, I’m pretty confident I didn’t say ‘black.’ I started to say a word and sort of mumbled it and changed my thought. I don’t recall saying black. No one in that audience heard me say that.

He “started to say a word.” What word? Black? Blighted? Blowsy? Bleached? Blond? Bleary-eyed? (Oh wait, that’s a hyphenate!)

And today the ever frothy Santorum, in front of a crowd of college Republicans, drew jeers when he compared gay marriage to polygamy.

Are we saying everyone should have the right to marry? So anyone can marry anyone else? So anybody can marry several people?

There is a big difference between two people marrying, no matter what the gender combo, and polygamy. Like an extra person difference. And actually anybody can marry several people.

You just have to un-marry the current spouse first. Like Newt Gingrich.
