The Low Road to the Senate: Pennsylvania Style

Remember when that stiff, John Kerry, gratuitously mentioned that Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbian during the debates? It was widely believed that it was an attempt--and an exceedingly lame attempt, at that--to drive a wedge between the Bush-Cheney ticket and religious conservatives.

It didn't work then, and it shouldn't work in Pennsylvania, either, where the Philadelphia Inquirer has announced that one of Rick Santorum's top aides has been outed on a gay website. (Hat tip: K-Lo at the Corner)

Considering the heat Santorum has taken in the past over his personal beliefs about gay sex, I suppose the Inquirer felt they could get that fire ignited once more. I'm guessing that sites that are left-wing and gay (as opposed to, say,, who is not Left wing) are going to be left scratching their heads over this one. (Andrew Sullivan is mum as of this writing.)

The solution to the conundrum is simple: Santorum may not endorse gay sex--may in fact find it "icky"--but that doesn't mean he has to have a problem with gay people.

I wonder if anyone will get that... at least on the Left.
