  1. Aw. Poor Santorum. He's so picked on, isn't he?

  2. I'd like more details about the gay Muslim terrorist cell that's "gone out on a Jihad" against Santorum. But my guess is it's sooo clandestine that only he knows about it.

  3. Cognitive Dissenter -- Yeah, poor baby. Santorum has opposed LGBT rights for years, so it's absurd when he complains that THEY'RE picking on HIM.

    Donna -- It's actually a Fremen cell that's waging jihad. Fremen dressed in glittery rainbow stillsuits have been riding giant sandworms to Pennsylvania, shouting "Hail Mua'dib! And Lady Gaga!"

  4. @Ahab, well, I can see why he might want to be vague about that one!

  5. Okay Ahab, your response to Donna's comment CRACKED ME UP. Seriously, you have a great imagination and a sharp sense of humor. You *should* write a satirical story poking fun at all this crazy Religious Right stuff while making all your excellent points. It would be informative, hilarious, and highly entertaining.

    I'll get you started: The LGBT community and the feminists are the evil bad guys ...

  6. Cognitive Dissenter -- Thanks for the encouragement! I just might one of these days.

  7. Ahab, you know we need guest posters on W&D. ;)

  8. Donna -- We ARE clairovoyant. I've been wracking my brain trying to think of something suitable for White and Delightsome, but I keep getting writer's block. I'd love to, but I'll need some time to come up with an idea.

    Maybe a torrid fantasy about a respectable senator and a tall, muscular jihadi? Naaaaah.

  9. "... suitable for White and Delightsome"? Is there such a thing? I mean, as if W&D has, um, high literary standards? ::snicker::

    We are an equal opportunity blog in that we make fun of all magical thinking and hypocrisy.

    Do it Ahab!
