These are Republicans? I haven't written a whole lot about the Santorum flap. It is horrible, but the reaction from the GOP honchos is not surprising. Gays are still personae non grata in many parts of the party even though there have been some gains. It does show that the Far Right has tight control of the party. What is interesting is that these types tend to not want the government involved in things like, helping people, and are aghast that there should be any control of the economy. But these so-called limited government types seem to have no problem with government controlling the passions of the general populace. Jacob Sullum has an excellent article about Santorum's reasoning which should make anyone who believes in liberty scared.
