Savage speaks on Santorum

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Rick Santorum's Google problem -- which comedian Stephen Colbert addressed Monday night -- is about to get worse. Dan Savage, the sex columnist that started the campaign in 2003, says his anti-Santorum site hasn't been updated since 2004. But that's about to change:

From Savage's latest column:

I do have issues—I have lots of issues—but I take particular issue with politicians who compare loving, stable same-sex relationships to "man on dog" sex, as Santorum has done, or who would ban same-sex marriage and adoptions by same-sex couples, as Santorum has promised to do if he gets elected president. But the lowercase s santorum campaign wasn't "one guy." A lot of people were involved—from the Savage Love reader who first suggested that we redefine his name to all the folks who've written about it over the years (thanks, Roll Call!)—just like a lot of people were involved in turning Rick Santorum out of office in 2006, an election he lost by an 18-point santorumslide.

The website that's still giving Rick Santorum fits—www.spreadingsantorum.com—hasn't been updated since 2004. But we will be relaunching the site in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
