Santorum's brassy take on Tijuana
Rick Santorum was never going to have an easy time of it in New Hampshire, where the thinking is "live free or die", not "let homophobic evangelical Christians tell you whom you can and can't marry or have sex with".
And sure enough, college students at a town hall meeting in Concord Thursday booed Santorum off the stage after he tried to justify his determination to ban gay marriage nationwide.
Asked by a woman in the audience about the idea that all men are created with equal rights to happiness and liberty, Santorum replied, "Are we saying that everyone should have the right to marry?"
Way to read your audience, Rickster. That's exactly what they're saying.
