On Monday Glenn Beck stated on his radio show that Rick Santorum could be “the next George Washington“. Not only is such a statement insulting to Washington’s legacy, it isn’t even based in reality. George Washington successfully fought for America’s independence, presided over the Constitutional Convention that drafted our Constitution, established precedents that still exist over two centuries after his death and above all, was a man who could have had a crown, but refused it to save a burgeoning country. What has Santorum done? He has equated homosexuality with incest and bestiality, stated that the Supreme Court should prohibit consenting adults from engaging in homosexual acts, and wants to repeal all federal funding for contraception, because as he stated, sex should be “procreative“. Not even hair powder and cow teeth could make Santorum anything remotely like George Washington.
