Rick Santorum Raised Terrifying $1 Million in 24 Hours

Illustration for article titled Rick Santorum Raised Terrifying $1 Million in 24 Hours

Rick Santorum's big wins in Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado don't mean much in the grand scheme of things, but they do seem to have given his campaign a big financial boost. The campaign confirmed they raised $1 million in the 24 hours following his victories, and $800,000 of that came from online donations. That sure is a lot of money—not that much to a political campaign, sure, but think about how many birth control pills that could buy for Rick's imaginary uterus! Or how big a donation that would be to the NOH8 campaign or to Planned Parenthood. If only there was a way to ensure that the next time—if there even is a next time—Santorum wins anything, for every dollar that's donated to him an equal and opposite donation will be made to an organization that can help balance out his whackadoodle notions of what's right for this country.

Can we just split the country up into two parts? Those people who would really like to live in a country without universal healthcare, where abortions are illegal, where gay people can't marry, and whatever other lame ultra-conservative notions are popular, can go live there, and the rest of us can live in the other one. Santorum, Romney, and the rest of 'em can duke it out for president of "Craptastic USA" and we can watch it on t.v. like a reality show or something. It's a huge country; we have the room to divvy it up. The only problem I can see would be the large influx of refugees from "Craptastic USA" to "Reasonable USA" once people start to realize that actually *living* under their own ideals kind of sucks.
