Santorum Wants to Put a Sticker on Your Rear

Sen. Rick Santorum gave a speech to Centre County Republicans recently. He spoke about the sacrifices our soldiers are making in Iraq and Afghanistan. He tells the audience he isn't asking them to put on a uniform, but to put a bumper sticker on their car (presumably a Santorum campaign sticker). Putting these two actions side by side just doesn't seem right to me.

See for yourself, Santorum Exposed has posted the video from PCN. (via gort42). They also have a transcript of that paragraph:

Santorum: "And yet we have brave men and women who are willing to step forward because they know what's at stake. They're willing to sacrifice their lives for this great country. What I'm asking all of you tonight is not to put on a uniform. Put on a bumper sticker. Is it that much to ask? Is it that much to ask to step up and serve your country?"

I can think of rear-related uses better suited to the worth of a Santorum sticker...

Sorry - couldn't resist...

Really - to not even tie it to voting or any other form of civic duty? The guy just has a gift - I find him so ridiculously offensive.
