Rick (Don't Google Me) Santorum: Gay Marriage is NOT a Paper Towel!

Oh, pity poor Rick Santorum. He's polling so badly, there's actually a gay Republican candidate doing better (Fred Karger). That's bad in today's homophobic GOP. But he's not backing off of the gay, no, no.

He's been prone to bad analogies before. It was his "man on dog" comparison that earned him Dan Savage's wrath, and has made "Santorum" more famous as a sex term than as a candidate. So, he's now picking more innocuous examples. But somehow, "a paper towel is not a napkin" is not likely to catch on with anyone except for those who are unaware that all napkins are not made of cloth.
