An ad hominem is the best you can muster? Did you forget the rules of English composition or did you mean to omit the comma that should have come after “wait”?
But enough of giving you twice the dose of your  own snottiness: show me how you profit from the likes of Rothschilds calling the shots - like where you do your offshore banking. Else, just get use to being labled a another conservative American living in denial about his status and place in the American economy and society.

If SCOTUS says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy.

For a guy who reputedly graduated from law school, Santorum spouts off a lot of logical fallacies. Laura Ingraham has a talent for that, too.

But the testiest part of the exchange came when an audience member suggested that gay people should be allowed to marry because they have a right to happiness.

In response, Mr. Santorum asked whether she thought that more than two people should be allowed to marry, apparently trying to suggest that the questioner was advocating an extreme position.

“If you’re not happy unless you’re married to five other people, is that O.K.?” he asked.

That angered the audience, which booed his answer.

“I’m happy to engage in a discussion,” he continued, saying that he wanted to “give people a chance to answer, but we’re going to have a civil discussion.”

The woman who had asked the first question then persisted, saying that the question about bigamy was “irrelevant.”

“In my personal opinion, go for it,” she said. “But when two men want to marry … ”

Mr. Santorum interrupted, “What about three men?”

“That’s not what I’m talking about,” the woman said to Mr. Santorum, who spent close to an hour and a half before the crowd.

The session ended with many of the students booing Mr. Santorum as he left for his next event.

Someone has got to be smart enough to be able to catch Santorum throwing out these red herrings about extending the legal status of marriage outside of monogamous relationships between adult human beings and stop him in his tracks.
