Right Wing Greens?

You're probably aware of Senator Rick Santorum from Pennsylvania. If not, then let's visit some of his best hits...

Here Santorum discusses why he has nothing against homosexuality, it's just the homosexual acts that disturb him...

I have nothing, absolutely nothing against anyone who's homosexual. If that's their orientation, then I accept that. And I have no problem with someone who has other orientations. The question is, do you act upon those orientations? So it's not the person, it's the person's actions. And you have to separate the person from their actions.

And here Santorum provides a little context into the Catholic Priest Boy-Love scandal...

Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.

Now, for some strange reason, the Santorum campaign is concerned with his re-election poll numbers. He's currently about ten points behind the Democrat candidate. These numbers tell a story, a story about the voters in a state that no longer want to be represented by a bigot.

So, what would a group of Conservatives do if they were afraid the Democrat could beat the incumbent Republican? Well, I guess one thing they could do is help fund a Green party candidate in the belief that Green voters will be pulled away from the Democrat. But would Republican supporters really offer to support a Green candidate? You're damn right, they will. According to TPMmuckracker:

Every single contributor to the Pennsylvania Green Party Senate candidate is actually a conservative -- except for the candidate himself.


When you read the entire story, you'll see that Santorum supporters funded the Green Party voter signature effort. Politics makes for some strange bedfellows, eh?
