I mean, it's not like I think Obama isn't likely to win in 2012: It's just that if something catastrophic happens (another economic meltdown, a terrorist attack, a Planned Parenthood Abortionplex opens in Kansas...), it could throw the election the other way. And that would be bad, mmmkay?
We're still working on healing the wounds of the Bush presidency. Even if Obama is re-elected, I doubt he can undo all the damage. States are still chipping away at reproductive rights; marriage equality is still meaningless on a federal level, and soldiers are still fighting and dying in an unwinnable war in Afghanistan. Add to that a Santorum presidency and we've got a huge hit to reproductive rights (and perhaps the rights of single mothers, and just women in general), a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, and another fucking war in Iran. Not to mention further financial deregulation and some unwise taxcuts, which will likely spell our entire economic system's untimely demise (time to take a class in Manadarin). That's bad.
Let me be clear: I'm no fan of Romney (I'm pretty sure the part of his brain that would normally hold conviction is full of hair), but he's a president I could live with, if worse came to worse. I cannot live with President Santorum. And if you've got a vagina, a brain, and/or an sexual appreciation for your gender, you can't live with him either.
So, guys, WTF are you going to do about it? Because telling everyone that Rick Santorum is composed almost entirely of poopy lube is obviously not enough. We need to think of new ways to stop him, and we need to think fast. Go.
