Oh, what a Rick

Rick Santorum, the #3 guy in the Senate, this past weekend, blaming the victims:

"I mean, you have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving."

Who gets penalized first, Rick? The people who don't have cars? The elderly in retirement homes? The ill in long-term care facilities? No, I know! The parents of children in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit! Penalize those people first!

Rick is running desperately to get re-elected, and you reckon he'd think twice before spewing idiotic hate drivel. But I guess Rick can't help spewing idiotic hate drivel. Call it his speech impediment.

The good news is Bob Casey, the Dem running against Rick, gives Santorum no quarter. His spokesman responded to the idiotic hate drivel by asking:

"What exactly does Senator Santorum mean by imposing penalties on people who often times had no transportation and no place to go?"
