Forever sexist and homophobic GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum made news yesterday during a campaign stop at a bowling alley after a young PinkShirt.jpgboy reached for a pink ball to play with the Republican asshat. "You're not going to use the pink ball. We're not going to let you do that. Not on camera. Friends don't let friends use pink balls," the mouth breathing wannabe told the poor kid. Apparently real men don't have anything to do with the color pink - unless it's paired with a fabulous seersucker suit!

What else should you know today? Here it is:

  • Over on the National Review, Maggie Gallagher is trying to spin NOM's race-baiting strategy with some flippant and evasive answers after readers took her to task. In the comments section of her own article she claims "the controversy is nothing" because there's no "evidence that we actually did those things." Equality Matters lists five clear examples. Whoops.
  • Speaking of Maggie and the "Whoops" factor, she failed to show up on air to debate Truth Wins Out's Wayne Besen yesterday on CNN. Host Thomas Roberts told his audience, "This empty studio chair was supposed to hold Maggie Gallagher, former president and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage. But as you can see she is missing in action." Turns out she was sitting in a different studio waiting for the interview to start after a booking staffer put her in the wrong room. Whoops.
  • Kathryn Lehman, the Republican lesbian who helped write DOMA, is now a lobbyist against the law for Freedom to Marry. An Oral Roberts University graduate, she served most of the House's biggest homophobes until she divorced her husband and came out of the closet. Shades of Ken Mehlman, anyone?
  • Larry Kramer is an ungrateful son-of-a-bitch. No, seriously. He says so.
  • Were you aware that Obama wants an abortion in every woman and a homosexual around each corner? Yup, forced abortions and "forced homosexuality" according to Liberty Council chairman Matt Staver.
  • Take a video tour of the Trojan condom factory. No, there's no demonstrations for using the product, just the making of the rubbers.
