|| By FITSNEWS || There’s a big story in The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier this week ripping on a guy named Jon Parker – who is spearheading the South Carolina presidential aspirations of former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.
Given our disdain for Santorum – a.k.a. Jesus H. Warmonger – we’re naturally all over this report, right? Eager to blow it up big-time in the hopes of pistol-whipping some bad news on the collective brow of Team Santorum, right?
Not really …
Apparently Parker has quite the rap sheet, though – including a 2009 felony drug conviction in Virginia that landed him behind bars for seven months. And according to Post and Courier scribe Jeremy Borden, Parker’s checkered past includes a January 2014 public drunkenness arrest still pending in the South Carolina court system.
That would seem to imply that the 30-year-old consultant – who previously worked for S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson – has yet to get his act together.
Here’s the thing, though: As much as it pains us to write anything even borderline helpful to a sanctimonious, fearmongering, fiscally liberal douche canoe like Rick Santorum – who cares what his staffer’s issues are?
Last time we checked, Parker wasn’t running for president. And if anyone out there believes his checkered past is sufficient reason to vote for or against his preferred candidate (which was the obvious intent of whoever leaked this hit piece to the Post and Courier), then they should do the rest of us a favor and turn in their registration card.
Because they’re contributing even less to our democracy than one of governor Nikki Haley‘s dead voters …
This website has consistently argued against the federal government’s “war on drugs,” which seems to have ensnared Parker on several prior occasions. In fact his 2009 conviction (which took place during his time in college) was part of an undercover sting operation. And all he did in that instance was point an undercover cop in the direction of a drug dealer.
Seems pretty weak to us …
But that’s the nature of the “war on drugs” – it’s all about interfering in the free market and depriving people of individual liberty.
And yes, we get the argument that Parker is an odd choice for a Holy Roller like Santorum (who loves imposing his morality on others) … but at the end of the day all that should matter to Santorum is Parker’s skill as an operative.
Look, there is no shortage of reasons to reject Santorum’s candidacy. We’d put this at the bottom of the list … although the speculation surrounding who leaked the information makes for some interesting consideration.
meh…its fair game only because santorum is the kind of sanctimonious cocksucker who would happily condemn someone for a pot bust. if parker were working for a reasonable candidate, maybe it wouldn’t be news.
Speaking of sanctimonious cocksuckers, has a certain US Senator from SC officially thrown his hat in the ring yet?
Sanitorium is a joke. There are only three candidates – Jeb, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Marco won’t even move the needle. So……. let’s get it on. Walker is already starting his downhill slide.
Marco needs to retire in Miami and join his boyfriends to open the biggest hair salon in that part of Florida, which is going to be underwater due to rising sea levels, so none of it will ever matter. Nor does he.
Nah, Marco will become a lobbiest to lobby the Feds for huge amounts of money to build dikes and raise houses on stilts. In the end he’ll get block grants to get people boats and rename Miami The Venice of the East Coast.
“Miami The Venice of the East Coast.”
Ft. Lauderdale already has taken “Venice of America”
But how will he fund his living expenses for the next 2 years unless he squeezes some bible beaters out of their hard earned money?
I didn’t think it was possible for Santorum to look any dorkier, but the Perry glasses are “dork factor five”.
Oh yeah, he hasn’t got a chance – at best he’s a marginal candidate with fringe ideas and a lousy track record.
Even as a Dem I give him a lot of credit for the care and love he gives his daughter who has the disablity, but yeah, he does look like a dork. He needs to go back to the sweater vests.
Santorum is a creepy, sanctimonious, Pope-ass-kissing, fart blossom
Someone is pushing the Post and Currier hard on this issue.
I heard it was a SC consultant to Santorum that was paid last primary, but was muscled out of a job this time.
Funny how FITS whined and DEMANDED we give the Boston Marathon Bombers Extra-Due Process Rights, but this sad [email protected][email protected] indicts Santorum because Santorum believes we have the right to defend ourselves, and practice Christianity…
While our system allows for FILTH like FITS to slither among us…I’d LOVE to send that dirty piece of $#!t to one of the countries he exalts, while bashing our most dignified Americans…
Just because you are granted rights as American…does not mean you deserve them…
Boy, Frank called this one:
“One example of fascism is a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view and if that code happens to be very very right wing…” FZ
Just when I thought you could not be any more irrelevant, you dazzle me with your unique ability to ramble in Bull-$#!t…LMAO…
What’s STILL going to be irrelevant is four more years of you whinning about another Democrat president…here’s looking at 2020, dipshit. Cheers!
Then why are you so consumed with me, and always nipping at my heels, like an irritating little puppy dog? (:
Lol…more projection. Your bitch-ass can’t go ten minutes without barking like a fucking cur.
Not impressed…keep trying…LMAO…
Let the bloodletting begin.
We rarely get the suitable via the elections, so we might as well get a spectacle.
