Googling Santorum: The Chron's TexasSparkle Makes a Horrifying Discovery

It means WHAT?!
TexasSparkle is the highlight of the Houston Chronicle's "Anyone Can Blog" page.

Kathleen McKinley is her real name, and she's a person who thinks Sarah Palin is a serious individual, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh make sense, etc., etc.

Her bio says she is a "co-host [of] SmartGirlNation on FTRadio for SmartGirlPolitics."

Apparently, though, she has never, ever heard of what happens when you Google "Santorum." We guess it wasn't covered on Fox News, and if Fox News doesn't mention something, then that something doesn't exist.

With Rick Santorum's recent rise as the latest Not-Romney, BuzzFeed took note of "25 People Who Just Googled "Santorum" For The First Time."

Topping the list: Our own TexasSparkle!

The results were predictably hilarious:

For those of you who spend most of your time in the right-wing echo chamber, the Googled definition of "Santorum" is "The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex."

It all began when the bigoted-against-gays former Senator from Pennsylvania went on another of his crusades against homosexuality which, if you don't realize it, is speeding our country to hell.

Syndicated sex-advice columnist Dan Savage had a contest to come up with a definition of "Santorum" that he could then manipulate into being a leading Google result for the senator's name.

It's old news, but not to everyone, we guess. At least until Fox News covers it.

kathleen mckinley's chronicle blog is an embarrassment for all houstonians. how such a low-quality, poorly researched and unoriginal set of writings makes it onto the main page of a large metropolitan newspaper is mystifying. who is she boinking? what editor gives a pass to her drivel? another reason to skip the houston chronicle...

Rectum Santorum is likely a screaming, self-hating closet queen.  

If you asked Rectum Santorum, Ted Haggard, George Rekers, Larry Craig and Marcus Bachmann to enter a closed room and come up with a policy on what to do with gays, you could open the door after ten minutes and you'd probably find them all in a daisy chain or 69ing each other.

She's a fun blogger!

I was just over there reading her blog in which she proclaims that Santorum's clip where he says he doesn't want to "Make black people's lives better" wasn't him saying he didn't want to make people's lives better.

To Texas Sparkle's ears, when Rick Santorum PAUSES in his speech, it sounds exactly like the word "black"... which might be something a professional should address.

People who feel the need to impress everyone how "Smart" they are...usually aren't.  And the implication that anyone who doesn't agree with them is, by definition, NOT smart is insulting.  Of course, the people who typically do this wouldn't be "Smart" enough to realize it.

Dudes! That picture of her is about 30 years old! Seriously.

I dare someone to tell her about that more conservative, anti-Obama Tea Party off-shoot that's beginning to gain traction with the right: the Lemon Party.

The same thing is happening to state senate candidate Craig James because there was a rumor that Craig James killed 5 hookers while at SMU.

First off, this is way, way old news. How out of the loop can a blogger get? Damn.

Second, no man who takes a dead fetus home to introduce to his living children has any right to judge how others live their private lives.

Ding! You nailed it right there. Give the man a ceeee-gar!

If you go on her "blog" and try to argue a point with her, she ignores point you make, she acts like she pities you for having a differing opinion, and if you really get her scrambling and backpedalling due to lack of facts or a leg to stand on, she "takes her ball and goes home".  Seriously. Happened to me first hand. Plus she tried to call me "unpatriotic" and delete all of my posts.

Truly a mental midget.

Wyatt, in answer to your first question ... about as "out of the loop" as me leavin' "Word!" as a reply to your post.  What a sad state we're in ... it seems that the majority of the people are more aware about the Bristol Palin/Stephen Hanks rhubarb or who got kicked off "Dancin' With The Dillweeds".  Wake up, sheeples ... y'all need to get "edjumacated" about who's runnin' for what, and what they REALLY stand for.  More importantly, figure out how they might actually contribute to gettin' this train-wreck back on track ... 'cause y'all seen what "change" got us after '08.  I don't think they can stock enough Charmin at Walmart for us to bend over & wipe after that fiasco ...

"I don't think they can stock enough Charmin at Walmart for us to bend over & wipe after that fiasco ..."

There are several "santorum" (as a noun/adjective...not the name...necessarily...) jokes with your above post.  Not taking the bait.  Just stating the obvious.

No way, "word!" is cool again
