Published

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum hopes that Google will do something to disassociate his name with with a sex act.

The top search results on the worlds most popular Internet search engine conflates the former senator’s name with anal sex.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd talked to Santorum about his “Google issue” Thursday.

“Do you think google has any responsibility in how its search engine works,” Todd asked.

“It comes with the territory,” Santorum explained. “There are foul people out there who do horrible things. It’s unfortunate some people thought it would be a big joke to make fun of my name. That comes with the territory.”

“You don’t think google should step in themselves?” Todd prodded.

“I don’t know how they’ve treated other circumstances and other situations, whether they treated it differently than mine. I would suggest that if they have treated it differently and have done things stop this kind of this vile activity and filth on the Internet, they should apply it equally to me and everybody else,” Santorum said.

I woke up just in time to see Donald Trump's tweet that started it all: "Lawyers News Conference Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 a.m."

It was four days after the election — a Sunday — and I'd crashed out the night before after endlessly refreshing the AP Politics Twitter feed and analyzing the cursed New York Times election needle for what felt like 90 hours straight. But for the first time in years, I woke up with a glimmer of political hope for our nation as it looked like Trump's window to victory was closing.
