    Playa' Santorum

    The recent discovery and release of Richard Santorum’s high school yearbook picture is a burning reminder of the gay image issues plaguing the presidential candidate from Pennsylvania.

    Richard “Dick” Santorum has what could become an insurmountable gay image problem from the internets hate machine. When “Santorum” is googled, up until a couple of days ago, the first entry was this:

    santorum is a sexual neologism for “that frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex”

    The term became a number one google search after Jon Stewart of the liberally biased news program, The Daily Show, spurred viewers to google the term.

    The definition of the term arose from offense taken from a 2003 statement on homosexuality:

    “In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. I have no problem with homosexuality. I have a problem with homosexual acts.”

    Dan Savage, a radio personality, was offended by Santorum’s remarks and held a contest to define “santorum”. The winning entry was the mixture of lube and fecal matter sometimes seen post homosexual sex definition seen on the entry.

    Michael Fertik, CEO of ReputationDefender told Mother Jones, “This is an unusual problem, It’s devastating. This is one of the more creative and salient Google issues I’ve ever seen.”

    Each time the link is made from Santorum to the line, the scorn many of the homosexuals feel will be even further embedded as the number one search. It is sad, but even reading this article may further problems for the candidate and keep santorum in the top searches for Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask Jeeves.
