the spin from santorum spokeswoman

Oh, I love this.
Regarding Santorum’s comments about consensual gay sex being equivalent to incest or adultery, the Washington Post now reports that his “spokeswoman Erica Clayton Wright said the quote was accurate ‘only in the context related specifically to the right to privacy in the Supreme Court case.’ The senator, she said, ‘has no problem with gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender individuals.'”
So, he has no problem with us… just as long as we keep the sex out of our own bedrooms.
Um… whuuuuh? Did he hire this spokeswoman from Bizarro World? Did she get her PR degree from the same school as Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf? Is this statement even supposed to be accepted as a cogent explanation, much less a retraction or apology?
