HILARIOUS: Dan Savage Ready With X-Rated Joke When Santorum Drops Out

Life used to be so much easier for people who are homophobic. Now one little judgmental comment, and the internet dogs them all over and back again, from now to eternity. You won’t believe what happened to the ex-senator of Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, R, who just dropped his run for president on Wednesday. Here’s a hint: it is “ex-rated.”

Sex columnist and activist Dan Savage agrees that it is rough for the homophobes :

‘It’s a less intolerant world than it used to be, because people like me are now empowered to look at people like you and say you are full of sh*t.’

Savage had it out for the former senator, after the ultra-conservative argued against any relationship other than marriage between a man and a woman. Santorum said:

‘That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.’

The columnist responded:

‘He said something vile about us, let’s say something vile about him.’

The something that Savage did was coin a new definition for “Santorum.” He made his name by creating the internet joke in which he used Google’s search engine to fuse Santorum’s name to something that would send the former senator to his knees, praying for forgiveness for impure thoughts.

Savage told the Ft. Worth reporter Diane Smith:

‘It’s still out there and it is an insanely dirty joke.’

I tried it, and the fruits of Savage’s efforts are still out there well after a decade, doing their cunning work against Santorum. Savage commented on the joke in 2012:

‘It is crude. It is vile, as are Santorum’s comments about gay people.’

Savage has long been working his magic in the political world. He decided to infiltrate Republican Gary Bauer’s headquarter in Iowa during the Republican primary in 2000.

He had a raging case of the flu and decided that he could use his germs as bioweapons against Bauer and his entire staff at the headquarters:

‘I went from doorknob to doorknob. They were filthy, no doubt, but there wasn’t time to find a rag to spit on. My immune system wasn’t all it should be—I was in the grip of the worst flu I had ever had—but I was on a mission.’

‘If for some reason I didn’t manage to get a pen from my mouth to Gary’s hands, I wanted to seed his office with germs, get as many of his people sick as I could, and hopefully one of them would infect the candidate.’

‘So, much as it pains me to confirm a hateful stereotype of gay men—we will put anything in our mouths— I started licking doorknobs.’

‘The front door, office doors, even a bathroom door. When that was done, I started in on the staplers, phones and computer keyboards.’

‘Then I stood in the kitchen and licked the rims of all the clean coffee cups drying in the rack.’

On Wednesday, when Santorum dropped off of the GOP presidential candidate list, after finishing close to last, Savage leaped forth and slammed him with an “ex-rated” Twitter:

When Josh Zepps of Huffpost Live asked Savage whether or not Santorum’s “Google problem” was a source of pride, the columnist said:

‘Absolutely!’

After Santorum dropped out, he gave his endorsement to Florida senator Marco Rubio, R. I wonder if that means, he passed his internet curse on to him, too.
