Raunchy Santorum Sex Jokes Abound

There are some things that can’t be unlearned. Like the word “santorum.” Ever since GOP Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum clumped homosexuality together with bestiality and polygamy and declared them all deviant, syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage created an alternative meaning for the politician’s surname. There’s no easy way to do this, so hide the children for a moment and don’t let them near the computer… Santorum: That frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex. (Source: Urban Dictionary).

Last night some Washington journalists couldn’t stop themselves from cracking jokes on the Santorum matter, with the former senator surging and all.

The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza remarked on Twitter, “Note to headline writers tonight: be careful with how you juxtapose the words Santorum and caucus.” And Metro Weekly‘s openly gay White House Correspondent Chris Geidner jumped right in, reminding Lizza, “You forgot ‘three-way’ and ‘from behind.’”

Bloomberg View columnist Jonathan Alter made this keen observation: “If Santorum pulls this out, he’ll dog Romney for months.” Democratic strategist and pundit Paul Begala couldn’t resist. “That would be dog-on-man, no?” he replied.

Also unable to resist the heat of the moment was HuffPost‘s political writer Sam Stein who concluded, “This is, undoubtedly, the first three-way Santorum’s been in #hadtomakethejoke.”
