At Least He’s Not Watching Porn

So, I a big fan of the funnies.  Today’s Foxtrot features Mom finding out that Dad gets up in the middle of the night to use the computer behind her back.  What for?  Photoshopping pictures of different hairdos onto himself.  That’s a Darkside.

There’s been a lot of speculation about Rick Santorum’s sudden surge in the Republican Primary.  Hmmm, . . . . .  You’re choices are  1.  A dude who has left two wives, one under treatment for cancer, another with the missive that, “my mistress doesn’t care that I have sex with you”;  2. A guy who transports a dog the roof of a car long distance;  3.  An attentive dad who takes time off from the campaign trail to attend and cuddle his severely disabled daughter.

Gosh!  What to do?  What to think?

I guess it really is a bummer for the political establishment/ ruling elite that people like women can vote.  We have all these weird priorities and criteria.  Chicks are always wandering into the weeds and getting wound up in these issues that just don’t matter, like whether a candidate pays attention to their spouse and kids.  Why should philandering and tail chasing affect the prospects of a prominent and promising politician???  Women are just really uptight, that’s why their husbands have to cheat.

I’ll admit, Rick Santorum lives in The Disneyland—the Mothership of his generation.  But let’s consider for a minute, what a piece of The Disneyland according to Rick Santorum looks like.  It’s a Disneyland where dads are responsible for their kids, marry the mothers of their children, stay faithful, and cuddle their daughters, even the ones who aren’t perfect little dolls.

I’ll agree that Rick Santorum’s Disneyland—like most people’s—is completely unrealistic.  But, it really isn’t the worst Imaginary World, at least one part of it.

Primaries aren’t over until they are over.  Anywho, props to the 2012 election season for making attentive and unabashed fatherhood an election issue.  🙂
