This site does not endorse Rick Santorum

Longtime reader Rebecca sent in the above screenshot of her browsing this site a few hours ago. I want to reassure everyone, these ads are automatically generated by Google and have more to do with where you live than anything else. Santorum's campaign must be buying a lot of web ads these days with his sudden boost in performance in the Republican primaries.  I'm happy to help along his effort towards a Romney-Santorum Republican ticket in the presidential elections, because that will guarantee Obama's re-election.

The irony of having a Santorum banner with the top story being the Salafi azan is just more than I can bear.  This really makes my day.

Needless to say, my view of Santorum is in line with Dan Savage's.
