Gay activist and sex columnist Dan Savage noted on Countdown with Keith Olbermann that Republican candidate Rick Santorum has said that states have the right to ban birth control.

“An overwhelming amount of Americans, including Catholic Americans, use birth control,” he said Wednesday. “One of the constant things I’m reminding people about Rick Santorum is he doesn’t have merely an anti-gay agenda, he has an anti-straight agenda too. He’s against birth control, he’s against abortion, he’s against pornography, he’s against all sorts of things that straight people use and enjoy frequently.”

“You need to know, heterosexual Americans, the gay-bashing isn’t his only hobby,” Savage added.

He is the man responsible for Santorum’s “Google problem.”

Enter his name into a Google search and one of the top pages is a reference to a sexual neologism coined as a tribute to his past denunciations of homosexuality. Spreadingsantorum.com defines “santorum” as “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum.”

“I’m getting letters from people who think that the neologism came first — [that] this was actually what ‘santorum’ meant and that Santorum was burdened with this unfortunate last name and why didn’t he change his name before he ran for president,” Savage told Olbermann.
