When Rick Santorum is one of the "brightest" you have....

By Richard K. Barry

Think, man. What is the dumbest thing
I can say today?

I was waiting to see how soon Republican foolishness would manifest itself in the wake of Mandela's death, and it didn't take long. 

GOP big thinker Rick Santorum appeared with Fox News bigger thinker Bill O'Reilly yesterday and tied the world changing work of Mr. Mandela to Obamacare, and not in a good way.
“He was fighting against some great injustice, and I would make the argument that we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people’s lives — and Obamacare is front and center in that,” Santorum said Thursday on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Yes, providing healthcare to millions of previously uninsured Americans. Mandela would have hated that.

  • Jesus would have hated it too. But Hitler, he would have loved it.

  • It all seems so Stalinesque, ya know?

  • I think the bigger point which Santorum is trying to make is that Republicans have always despised Mandela, calling him a communist, calling the ANC a terrorist organisation, and that in the eighties chose to support the apartheid regime of South Africa. They predicted that the collapse of apartheid would bring about a wave of black on white violence in South Africa and scoffed at the success of Truth and Reconciliation, going so far as to dismiss T&R commissions in the wake of the Iraq during W's term of office, with the result that Bush's Mission Accomplished descended quickly into sectarian violence and civil war, with American troops caught in the crossfire.
