“Rick Santorum, Meet the Gallaghers”

In this piece just posted to The New Civil Rights Movement, I use a superficially silly comparison to the Showtime hit “Shameless” to make a broader point: Santorum’s positions are loco.

Sentinel Confrontations

I have a new piece over at The New Civil Rights Movement, where I explore several recent confrontations between right-wing Republicans and “ordinary Americans.” The very fact of these meetings presages the decline of the far right’s position on LGBT equality issues, but that doesn’t mean the death throes will be smooth. No. Expect continued thrashing, and bashing. Perry and Gingrich lead the way, and they’re so clueless they don’t even realize that their extreme positions are dooming their candidacy.

Too¬† bad, because a campaign season’s worth of this buffoonery would at least have had comic value. Expect instead a dreary slog, inching painfully toward next November.
