I’m so glad Santorum didn’t throw Rush under the bus like some Republicans have today, pandering to Democrats. Instead he defended Rush, noting that basically he was pointing out the absurd with the absurd.

The clip below starts with Santorum being asked once again to explain his “Obama is a snob” remark, of which he did a fine job.

BLITZER: All right. Well, let – let’s talk about this other education issue. You know about this Georgetown University law student, this Sandra Fluke. Today, the president actually called her and supported her. She’s getting criticized, as you know, by Rush Limbaugh, who – who has used some outrageous terms. Even a spokesman for the speaker, John Boehner, is saying what Rush Limbaugh is saying is – is totally inappropriate right now.

But let me – let me play this little clip, because he’s – he’s – Rush Limbaugh is suggesting that by supporting government insurance, paid insurance for contraceptives, birth control pills or whatever, Rush Limbaugh suggesting she’s a slut or a prostitute. And then he even goes further.

Listen to this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: So Ms. Fluke and the rest of you femi-Nazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and, thus, pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BLITZER: All right, go ahead.

I – I want you to respond to Rush Limbaugh.

SANTORUM: Well, he’s taking – you know, he’s being absurd. But that’s, you know, an entertainer can be absurd. And he’s taking the absurd, you know, the absurd point of view here as to how far do you go?

And, look, I’m – he’s in a very different business than I am.

I’m concerned about the public policy of this president imposing his values on the people on people of faith who morally object to the government telling them they have to do something which they believe is a grave moral wrong. And government should not be in the business of telling – you know, when you talk about the separation of church and state, you hear it all the time.

Well, the real separation of church and state in that our founders believed in was that the state cannot tell people of faith what to do and run over their rights.

And that’s what this president is doing right now.
