Rick Santorum withdrawing from race →

"God, country and family are the most important things in my life. Of those, God comes first. Last night, I had a vision—I spoke to Him—and now I know what it is I must do. So don’t feel bad, because I don’t feel bad. Cheer up; it’s really a time to celebrate. I will reveal my next steps shortly. Right now, I almost feel like singing and dancing without regard or restraint" -Rick Santorum

It’s a free country; you can do whatever you want. But let’s not forget that faith is just an opinion—it’s just somebody’s opinion. Which gets us back to Rick Santorum, who thinks it’s something more than just an opinion. And that’s what I would like to say to him, because he said today very clearly he doesn’t really believe in the separation of church and state, and that’s absolutely ridiculous—that is unacceptable in this country…You’re allowed to have your opinion that a Palestinian 2000 years ago walked on water, and did magic tricks, and is really…his own father and all that stuff. That’s fine…And the fact that a billion other people believe it gives you a lot of strength and credence. But I also have the opinion that that’s ridiculous, that it’s anachronistic, that it’s the 21st century…Don’t tell me ‘this is my faith’ or somehow it means something more than my opinion, because it doesn’t mean anything more than my opinion. My opinion is just as valid as your opinion and my opinion is you’re nuts.

— Bill Maher on Piers Morgan Tonight [27 Feb. 2012]

Unlike the Earth, we’re intelligent, and we can actually manage things.

Rick Santorum, during a campaign stop in Ohio, criticizing liberals and environmentalists that he believes are putting “Earth above man.”

Santorum made similiar comments during a recent campaign stop in Colorado, in early February, where the candidate was quoted as saying, “we were put on this Earth as creatures of God to have dominion over the Earth, to use it wisely and steward it wisely, but for our benefit not for the Earth’s benefit.”

This man’s stupidity increases exponentially every time he opens his mouth.

The Earth will manage our arrogant asses if too many have or buy into Santorum’s view. We are still within and a product of its systems; we are not on the outside looking in.

“We could have been a source for good from the very get go in Libya,” Mr. Santorum said during the latest Republican presidential debate. “This president was very indecisive and confused in Libya. He only went along for the mission in Libya because the United Nations told him to. Ronald Reagan would have melted like the wicked witch of the west before he allowed that to happen.”

That was Rick Santorum at last night’s GOP debate.

So he’s trying to depict Obama as a weak leader with regards to Libya because Obama wanted the US to work in a limited fashion within a global, multilateral framework on the personally sensitive issue of military intervention in an Arab country? Right…

The GOP candidates had nothing useful or accurate to say about Libya last night, that’s for sure.
