You Can Only Spread Santorum So Far

santorumsmiles.jpgNo one has done more to ruin Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.)'s good name than sex columnist Dan Savage... with the possible exception of Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.). After the senator compared gay sex to bestiality and pedophilia, Savage ran a contest to rename something sexual in his honor. The winner: "The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex."


Earlier in the year Savage donated $2,100 to Santorum's opponent, Democrat Bob Casey. And Savage learned what Traci Lords, Marilyn Chambers, and Richard Nixon learned before him: It's hard to go legit.

Six weeks after receiving a thank-you call from a Casey staffer and an invite to his Seattle fund-raiser, Savage learned this week that his money wasn't necessarily welcomed.

Not directly, at least.

Casey's finance director called Savage on Tuesday to say thanks, but no thanks. The "higher ups" in the campaign decided that the contribution could cause Casey more trouble than it was worth, Savage said he was told. Savage said it was then suggested that he donate the check to an organization working for Santorum's defeat.

"That way, Casey could benefit from my money without having to, you know, associate himself with the likes of me," Savage wrote on his blog. "Huh."

And Pennsylvania loses the chance to hear a weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking. Imagine the radio ads!
