This is a proposal for a Rick Santorum / Dan Savage independent
political ticket for the upcoming presidential elections in the US of
A. If you don't know the history between these two men you can
google the word "Santorum" and read the first few hits. A political
allegiance between these two
would be very improbable but so is
world peace. And after all what do we have to lose, it is 2012 and
the last year ever. So if those two can get along then who
get along. Wouldn't that ticket be a better place from which to
say for instance Arab/Israeli discussions than from either one of
other two probable starting points we have lined up?
My reasoning here is that both of these men have in common that
they have used ideologies as technologies to overcome barriers
presented to them by what seems pretty clearly to me are
disabilities. If these two men could start by self identifying as
people with disabilities and then continue by using their common
ground to form a political platform then I think we would have
something that mr Obama would at least need to worry about.
The common ground they share as people who need technologies
is so much greater than their differences and is so much what we
all share with the Internet and everything and with the need for
big picture view that, well I would vote for them.

how to bring about such an unlikely coupling, or can
give us a more substantial outline of what its
program would be, I'm not
sure what the invention is.
||Marked or deletion? Which one is it, [jutta]? The suspense is killing me!
||Ha! (but anyway, [marked-for-deletion] - wibni)
||Welllll... jutta, he is JesusHChrist, so all things are

certainly /attend/ a "Savage Santorum" party.
