Santorum in trouble

Back in May, I predicted that right-wing nut Sen. Rick Santorum would lose his re-election bid. Now, Republican insiders are starting to agree.

Let's hope we're right. Santorum is the wrong kind of Republican. The defeat of an anti-freedom Republican will be good not only for the country, but also for the future of the Republican Party. This is the guy, after all, who thinks banning gay marriage and civil unions* is crucial for homeland security:
"I would argue that the future of our country hangs in the balance because the future of marriage hangs in the balance," he said shortly before the vote. "Isn't that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?"
HT: Polipundit.

* The bill under consideration would have banned gay marriage outright, and also would have prevented courts from granting domestic partnership benefits to unmarried couples. Presumably, legislatures would still be allowed to confer such benefits.
