Rick Santorum‘s baby mama Karen jumped into the gay fray today by going all mama grizzly on teh gheys (including the bears). Pointing out that they’re just being haters when they’re hatin’ on Rick’s unhealthy obsession with homosexuals, Karen said that Rick actually loves him some gay (strictly in a non-physical, purely manly, bro-hugs-lasting-longer-than-four-seconds-are-totally-queer way) and only seeks to save them from the horrors of a bleak and loveless marriage kept together for the children’s sake:

Karen Santorum, wife of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, defended her husband Monday against same-sex marriage proponents targeting the former Pennsylvania for his social conservative views.

“I think it is very sad what the gay activists have done out there. They vilify him, and it is so wrong,” Karen Santorum said at a South Carolina forum. “Rick does not hate anyone. He loves them. What he has simply said is marriage shouldn’t happen.”

[...]

His wife’s comments Monday came in response to a question from a supporter with a gay son. While the woman said her son was fine with Santorum’s position on same-sex marriage, she still feels conflicted over her son’s impression that Santorum “hates gays.”

“Help me,” she said. “How do I deal with that?”

His wife quickly jumped in to denounce the reputation Santorum has gained among some activists as “anti-gay.”

“As far as hating, it’s very unfortunate that that has happened. A lot of it is backyard bullying,” Karen Santorum said Monday.

Stop being mean to Rick Santorum, you guys!

Just because Rick doesn’t want you to get married doesn’t mean you can’t live together in sin, doing God knows what with your naughty parts to each other, just like Karen Santorum did for six years with a baby-killer in return for nice vacation trips and orthodonture before she gave up on life and settled for Rick and began pooping out babies.

You guys can do that too, although you may want to pass on the settling and baby-pooping part….
