The Problem With Santorum

This disturbing quote from Reason's Hit and Run:

This whole idea of personal autonomy -- I don't think that most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. And they have this idea that people should be left alone to do what they want to do, that government should keep taxes down, keep regulation down, that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, that we shouldn't be involved in cultural issues, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world. And I think that most conservatives understand that we can't go it alone, that there is no such society that I'm aware of where we've had radical individualism and it has succeeded as a culture.

As one who has ascribed to the credo of the radical individualist, how do I possibly vote for someone like this?

Dude! You don't!

I'm certainly not going to! Seriously, this is the Senate. The difference between R and D is . . . nothing. They all think they're demigods, above it all, doling out pork and living the high life.

Who gives a rat's ass? Always vote against the incumbent in Senate races, that's my motto.
