    Sooo, according to Santorum, religion is okay in politics - but not that nasty ole science. Crazy...

    Since when is the dissemination of facts a “politically correct perspective.”

    This is important and telling with regard to conservatives in general: the rejection of facts that conflict with rightist dogma. And in the case of social conservatives, religious dogma as well.

    Santorum is the candidate closest to the Tea Party's ideals; it's fascinating that they don't give him shit for support.

    Politicians should get out of science, would have been more accurate.

    Right wingers want science out of politics. They don't like debating "reason".
