Santorum’s Clarifier: Rick Condemned Obama’s Radical Islamic Theology

Santorum surrogate’s slip of the tongue

Santorum sent his spokesperson Alice Stewart out to explain that when he condemned President Obama’s “theology” for “not being based on the Bible,” what he actually meant to do was to condemn Obama for being an environmentalist. This explanation is, of course, not plausible.

Then Stewart put her foot in it by saying what she really meant, which was that he was condemning Obama for his radical Islamic theology.

She called back to retract, but as Freud pointed out, sometimes these slips of the tongue are ways for a person’s subconscious to express itself publicly.

This incident follows Santorum’s other spokesman Foster Friess, who came out to urge “girls” to put a “bayer aspirin between their knees” for birth control.

Santorum team: Not ready for prime time.

Santorum: Never will be ready for prime time.

  1. I kind of liked her oxymoron at 2:39 into the interview: “theological secularism”.

  2. “Then Stewart put her foot in it by saying what she really meant, which was that he was condemning Obama for his radical Islamic theology.

    Is is possible she forgot that private conversations do not make good talking points? That in private, Santorum talks about Obama’s Islamic stance, and that she forgot to edit his and her own conscious thoughts before talking?

    • I think the Santorum people are saying in public *a lot* of things that the right wing religious people say in private, and so are scaring the horses.

    • I’ve been reading ‘Mormon America’ and am fascinated by the parallels between Founders Smith and Young and Mohammed: Multiple wives, mysterious unverifiable ‘divine revelation’ of a book they must write down [transcribe] and marriage to ‘women’,,, er, girls… of 12 and 14 years age…

  3. If Obama is an environmentalist, forget about any future for humanity. If Santorum becomes POTUS, emigrate.

  4. A couple of months ago Santorum was blasted for saying he was against welfare for black people. True to form, Santorum said don’t believe your lying ears…”What I said was I against welfare for blah people.”

    Add today’s explanation and…you almost have to love this idiot…in a Barney Fife kind of way.

  5. In Santorum’s theology, earth is meant to be used in service of the man, but the budget must be balanced!

  6. I love it. The more crazy Santorum gets, the harder the far right will find it to reeducate themselves to live with Romney after the convention. Of course, Santorum could be the running mate; Palin II – Pentecatholic Boogaloo.

  7. The pressure of the world is pressing in on everyone — economic, political, environmental, populational. People who suffer are turning to fundamentalism as if it really offered help. Islamic fundamentalism we decry, Christian fundamentalism we (some of us) praise, and Jewish fundamentalism we cannot find words to pronounce — as it takes us to war after war.

    • For your information, the whole Zionist infrastructure which is constantly being denounced here was set up by militantly progressive secularists. The religious sector was almost totally marginalized, and still is to a large degree. The big push for the settlements in the West Bank started under secularists Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres and the secular Labor Party. The ineffable Jewish Fundamentalism you mention has only a handful of representatives in the Knesset (the so-called “Ultra-Orthodox” are sectorial, anti-nationalist and have no interest in running the country, unlike the MB in Egypt).
