Santorum 2012

Well, not really; but close:

In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan on Friday, Rick Santorum defended Kirk Cameron’s recent remarks that homosexuality is “unnatural” and “detrimental and destructive to society,” suggesting that “both sides need to respect both sides.”

I think both sides need to respect both sides… As someone who’s been very public about this, I respect people who disagree with me. I think they have a right to go out and make their case and sell it to the American public and try to change the law if they see fit. But, I don’t use language that, you know, calls them bigots or haters, and nor should they think that someone, because they simply disagree with them on that subject, should be treated the same. So I think rhetoric on both sides needs to be judicious and fair and respecting people’s difference of opinion.

It’s statements like these that really make me think that Republicans read Orwell’s 1984 as a bible on how to achieve and maintain power.

War is peace.  Eastasia is our enemy, er, no, ally.  Slavery is freedom.  Repudiating lies is as reprehensible as lying.  Ignorance is strength.
