Rick Santorum’s Desperate Need for His Gay Communications Director …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

When I saw that Rick Santorum’s team has come up with a sweater vest fundraiser to raise a million dollars, I rolled my eyes. I’m not anti-sweater vest, but it is a little … dull? Then I saw the two mottos of the project “Don’t let sleeves slow you down.” “Second Amendment vest: the right […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Found this through the Post-Gazette’s Cutting Edge:   From Alternet … On last night’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Dan Savage (of Santorum Google bomb fame) discussed how the candidate’s problematic views extend beyond homophobia. “One of the things I’m constantly reminding people about Rick Santorum is that he doesn’t have merely an anti-gay agenda — he […]

Rick Santorum: Eliminate Food Stamps b/c Obesity is The Hunger Problem

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It isn’t just a distasteful opinion, it is sheer distortion of factual information on the causes of hunger, the rates of hunger, the role of food stamps and the economy. How could you elect a President who doesn’t understand the association of poverty, employment and […]
