Those bullies at Saturday Night Live

Lots of videos this morning, huh? Sorry about that. I wasn't planning to embed this one, but then Rick Santorum started to complain about being bullied. Heh, heh. Well, I couldn't pass that up, could I?

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Rick Santorum isn't laughing at a Saturday Night Live sketch that depicted Andy Samberg as him participating in "Yet another GOP debate" from a gay bar in San Francisco's Castro District.

The former Pennsylvania senator and current GOP presidential nominee hopeful told New Hampshire radio station WGIR that the sketch counted as "bullying."

"The left, unfortunately, participates in bullying more than the right does," he told the radio host. "They say that they're tolerant, and they're anything but tolerant of people who disagree with them and support traditional values."

Santorum said he hadn't actually seen the sketch, saying, "I’ve heard about it. I haven’t had a chance to see it."

Yes, Santorum is not only complaining about "bullying" because of a sketch on a comedy show... - Hey, Rick, they make fun of everyone! That's kind of the whole point! - ...he's complaining about a sketch he hasn't even seen.

Santorum is just making himself an even bigger joke than he was before, if that's possible. But in the Republican Party these days, it's typical to play the victim.

According to the Republican base, white Christians are the only people who face discrimination in America. Heck, Rick Perry is being attacked, even within the GOP. because he's a Christian, right? Yeah, 75% of the nation - and probably 99% of Republicans - are Christian, but that doesn't stop them from playing the victim card.

So of course Rick Santorum is being bullied by the "lamestream media," when a comedy show pokes fun at him, just as they poke fun at every public figure. Well, no one ever claimed these right-wing loons were rational.
