"I condemn the people who booed that gay soldier. That soldier is serving our country, I thank him for his service to our country. I'm sure he's doing an excellent job. I hope he is safe, and I hope he returns safely, and does his mission well. I have to admit, I seriously did not hear those boos. Had I heard them, I certainly would have commented on them. But as you know, when you're in that sort of environment, you're focused on the question and formulating your answer. And I just didn't hear those couple of boos that were out there. But certainly, had I, I would have said that that was -- I would have said, don't do that, this man is serving our country, and we are to thank him for his service."

-- Rick Santorum, speaking on Fox News

Imagine Santorum's saying there is no place for sex in the military. And this to a soldier who is serving his country so that Santorum can stay home and breed. How many children does he have now, seven?

The man is a rat-faced snake and will say whatever he thinks is required to get votes. When he elects to serve, and does serve, a full tour in the military and serves in a combat role in a combat zone only then can he have an opinion on military service and not until.
