There’s a reason that we discussed Rick Santorum’s fatherhood quote last night with such passe trepidation. It’s because politicians are boners and just when you find something you can appreciate, they make you hate them later.

So it’s no surprise that we’re here to let you know that Rick Santorum thinks that having a father in prison is better than having same-sex parents. Specifically, “no father at all,” meaning, of course, two mothers. Now, although we’re a fatherhood site, we do believe that there are plenty situations where it’s possible – even probable – that having two loving and capable moms could very well be better than having an incarcerated father. We admittedly have no stats on it, but we’d put a twenty-spot down on it in a bet.

Santorum tried to quote an expert on the topic – out of context – and we won’t really go into it all here. You’ll have to hit the sauce for the deets.

And though we at 8BitDad don’t necessarily back any particular candidates in this election, we do encourage you to listen to Vermin Supreme’s speeches, because he seems to make the most sense in this race.
