But what if it *doesn't* say that, Mr. Santorum?

by Jeremy Hooper

On his official website, this is the same-sex marriage stance that Rick Santorum's campaign is pushing:

On Same-Sex Marriage:
"If the constitution says marriage is between a man and a woman, then marriage is between a man and woman."
[RickSantorum.com]

Only problem with this, of course? The U.S. Constitution says absolutely nothing about marriage being between a man and a woman. So this one liner is about as transferrable to our real world conversation as Rick Santorum's Iowa "surge" is transferrable to national electability.

But hey, when has fleshing out the merits of this matter ever been in the conservative movement's interest? Brevity is the heart of public confusion.
