5 World Net Daily Stories That Make Rick Santorum Look Centrist

December 3, 2012 6:26 pm Category: Memo Pad, Politics 14 Comments A+ / A-


If you’re an also-ran Republican candidate for president, what do you between elections? Okay, but then what do you do between releasing books and promotional DVDs?

Former candidate and U.S. senator from Pennsylvania Rick Santorum has decided to become a columnist for the World Net Daily. For those who have argued that the Republican Party needs to move back into the center with a more welcoming tone, Santorum’s move is a step in the opposite direction. The site often traffics in wild, unsubstantiated, religious-themed conspiracy of the kind Santorum has only dabbled in.

For WND, hiring Santorum actually represents a dramatic shift to the center.

The ex-senator may be the nation’s pre-eminent homophobe and spokesman for fundamentalist values, but he did operate in Washington D.C. for more than a decade with the occasional demonstration of pragmatism. His first rant takes on a safe target for the right wing — the U.N., which he accuses of wanting to pave the way for euthanizing his disabled child. It’s a wild swing at a nearly irrelevant issue. But for World Net Daily, it’s tame.

Here are 5 WND stories more extreme than most anything you can expect from Rick Santorum.

LOL Of The Week: Middle-Class Conservatives Don’t Get That The Joke Is On Them

Conservative pundits exploded on Thursday when CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would be replacing David Letterman as the host of The Late Show. And they weren’t just mad because a highly paid and powerful position didn’t go to a member of the Bush family. “Low-Rated Hyper-Partisan Lefty to Replace David Letterman,” screamed a headline from

5 Ways Paul Ryan’s Budget Screws Seniors

Republicans marched to their biggest landslide victory since before the Great Depression in 2010, buoyed by a terrible economy and the withering attack that Democrats had cut Medicare to fund Obamacare.

    C’mon now. Enough of this World Net Daily trashing. I’ve been a long time reader and I get news and information there that I can’t seem to find anywhere else. There have been some great stories recently.

    – President Obama secretly unloads Michelle for a 19 year old male prostitute.

    – Obama trashes Constitution. Plans to announce that cruel and unusual punishment is OK only on Grover Norquist.

    – Obama to reveal his secret strategy at state of the union address to bomb Norway back to the stone age.

    – Shocker: Obama’s hidden plans to appear on “Katie” as “Debbie Obama”.

    – Obama helped Pelosi beat the rap after she killed a guy at the dog track.

    – New source of energy found. Plans to make use of steam coming out of Rick Perry’s ears whenever he tries to do long division.

    There! I’ll bet you guys didn’t know anything about these things.

      WND seems more like any of those publications that I have seen in the supermarket checkout line. If I remember they seem to more interested in sensational headlines.

    Geller- a disgustingly Islamophobic, intellectually & morally bankrupt genocidal psychopath who is also horribly anti-semitic. She’s an abomination & an extremist who should be ashamed to call herself a human being. She’s as horrible as one can get.

    That web site is good for a laugh once in awhile I go in there just to help get their panties wadded up.

    Is this the new “TEAPARTY” for the GOP?

  • commserver

    Santorum is looking for a platform. WND gives him that platform.

    It is also a paycheck, which is probably satisfactory.

    • rpg1408

      And he was a candidate for President in the GOP Primary!!!!!!! Along with Herman Cain ( old 999) and Michelle Bachmann he is a perfect example of the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the GOP.

    His poor judgement is showing itself again.

      Poor judgement?

      You are kind.

    You don’t need credentials to blog on the internet, Matt Druge, got his start claiming fantasies about Monica Lewinski. Problem for the GOP is that the base is reading this stuff, and lapping it up so when they have to run again they will have to suport these wild theories. This is a reply of Trump and his birther theories forcing his way into the republican debate. The front runners couldn’t just dismiss it since he had traction, with the racist wing of the doppy base, which is a large swath of the GOP. Now the wingnuts have an audience to play to and will get even wilder. I think them bolgging about Norquist being a muslim brotherhood member is priceless. As the saying goes: Sometimes you can’t make this stuff up
