Rick Santorum tells the Values Voter Summit that the conservative movement will never have the media or the "elite, smart people" on its side, which is why it must rely on the church and the family.

You will never have smart people on your side? So who will be on your side, dimwits? This is funny

'The smart elite people will never side with us.' Dude, I wouldn't brag about that.

I've been a Republican all my life, although it's somewhat difficult to recognize today. (I'm very moderate.) Santorum is a tool, but in a way, he nailed it on the head. The tea-party/right-wing nut-job wing of the GOP is completely governed by ideology. They live in a world that is completely black and white. No compromises. They want candidates who will strictly adhere to the conservative ideology. Reaching across the aisle- and working with the Democrats is a cardinal sin. (They don't seem to understand that refusing to work with half of Congress means that they'll never accomplish anything. Maybe they're waiting for the day that everyone agrees with them...) So yeah... they don't want Republicans who think. They don't want Republicans who watch anything but FoxNews. They don't want Republicans who are open-minded enough to think that maybe global warming is real, or that maybe gun-control is a good-idea. They just want someone who will toe the tea-party line.

After watching this speech, I have become quite suspicious of family values, if family is indeed the breeding facility of these idiots.

Does this make Republicans a "Special Needs" Party?

Well, you certainly will never have smart people on your side.

I think this is a very eloquent summation of the differences between the two major schools of thought in American currently: There is a side which believes in imaginary sky daddies and they aren't too bright but they FEEL that they're right and there is a side that believes in facts, education and science. It's sad, though, that he thinks the stupid people have some kind of high ground over the rest of us, revelling in their stupidity.

“The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” --Washington Post, August 29, 2012
It's the first honest comment he's ever made. EVER. 
Who kneeds smart peepole?
