Santorum's People are Effing Weird

Being a former resident of Pennsylvania, I'm quite familiar with the freakshow that is the Santorum Crazy Bus. So I'm not shocked by what comes out of that camp. But this... this is downright screwy:

Rival presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s Iowa coalitions director, Jamie Johnson, sent out an email saying that children’s lives would be harmed if the nation had a female president. [...]

“The question then comes, ‘Is it God’s highest desire, that is, his biblically expressed will, … to have a woman rule the institutions of the family, the church, and the state?’” Johnson’s email said.

And men have been totally awesome ruling the world for the last several thousand years. We're real pips. Wouldn't want a series of women leaders mucking up our record of success.
