Santorum Whipping Up A Frenzy In The GOP? Not So Fast


In the Huffington Post article describing how Rick Santorum pulled out a remarkable showing in Iowa, there’s a wonderful silver lining for supporters of marriage equality – and a great example of why Santorum can’t win:

Husband Dave Bowman, for his part, missed the 2008 Iowa caucus because he was stationed in Iraq. There, he said, he met plenty of gay and lesbian service members, and, to a man and woman, they were fine soldiers. Gay marriage is legal in Iowa, and both Dave and Sarah were honored to be part of his sister’s wedding — one son, Liam, serving as a flower bearer, Sarah said. The couple had Liam, a surprise, out of wedlock and faced down the judgment of fellow Iowa conservatives. Liam is now six, with two younger brothers, and the Bowmans are husband and wife.

Rick Santorum may seem like an odd choice, but both Bowmans got behind him — Dave much more reluctantly than Sarah. As of Monday, he was still undecided, citing “the gay marriage thing.”

“That’s where we’re differing,” Sarah said about the couple and Santorum, whose activism against gay rights has been so hostile that his name has been turned into a literal description of a sometime byproduct of anal sex.
