Sure, Dan Savage rebranded Rick Santorum's name to mean a piece of shit, but here is the right-wing candidate for the Republican presidential nomination behaving like one while discussing his stance on gay marriage at Penn State. His argument against gays getting married is painfully easy to debunk, but you have to give credit to someone who can do it to his face.

Santorum starts off this clip all worked up that Piers Morgan called him a "bigot." Well, a "bigot" is "a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion." If the poo-smeared condom fits...

Anyway, he goes on to say that he's not a bigot because he believes the dogma of the Catholic church and the part of the Bible that says that gay marriage is wrong. When the student pipes up to say that the American Psychological Association, among other scientific groups, would disagree, he says their opinion can't be trusted because it's not proof. Yea, because a bunch of centuries old bullshit from withered old men in robes and a magic book that was written by God knows who (seriously, God does know who) is unassailable fact about the evils of homosexuality, but scientific finding about it are just so much silliness. He makes this way too easy, and is way too infuriating.
