The Leftist rag Newsweek, which the Washington Post sold for $1 is linking to a story on The Daily Beast about Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s wife. On Newsweek’s site, the title of the story is the classy: Mrs. Santorum’s Love Doctor.
To sum up the story, before Karen Santorum was married to Rick, her name was Karen Garver and she lived with “a man an obstetrician and abortion provider 40 years her senior, and the man who helped deliver her.”
Rick Santorum, of course, is vehemently anti-abortion (among other things) so obviously “shacking up” and abortion are two things he’d be very against. Rick Santorum is not mentioned much in the article save for this little bit:
Around that time, she met her future husband when he recruited her as a summer intern for his law firm; he too hadn’t been much of a practicing Catholic, but that changed soon after they married in 1990.
The article also makes the point that after her Right Wing conversion her life became sexless and, of course, joyless:
Her law-school friend the social-justice lawyer ran into Karen Santorum on Capitol Hill around then. “She greeted me warmly,” he recalls, “but I got the idea that she wasn’t allowed to embrace me or anything. By that point she was dressed like Hester Prynne.”
It doesn’t take a genius to read between the lines: Karen and Rick are both hypocrites as are all Social Conservatives who only found their “path” because they wanted to wash away their sins.
Of course, we don’t hear similar “reporting” about Democrats like John Edwards who fathered a love child and now is said to have a potentially fatal heart condition (his wife, Elizabeth, divorced him shortly before she died of Cancer).
Leftist sites like The Daily Beast don’t like Conservatives as we showed last week when writer Michelle Goldberg went off on Michele Bachmann calling her all sorts of nasty names.
The surprising aspect is that a publication like Newsweek, which may be found in bookstores and in Safeway would “partner” with such a vindictive site but Newsweek has fallen from its once lofty perch and now sports a cover photo of Obama with the title: Why Are Obama’ Critics So Dumb?
It is puzzling why such a deeply personal attack on a candidate would even be considered… especially their spouse and over something that happened more than 20 years ago?
If you disagree with a man over his opinions on abortion or gays then address that… don’t go and attack the man’s wife for something she did before she met him.
Which side of the isle is injecting so much hate into the system again?
