Dan Savage on Rick Santorum: He's Not Just Anti-Gay, "He Has an Anti-Straight Agenda Too"

On last night's Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Dan Savage (of Santorum Google bomb fame) discussed how the candidate's problematic views extend beyond homophobia. "One of the things I'm constantly reminding people about Rick Santorum is that he doesn't have merely an anti-gay agenda -- he has an anti-straight agenda too," Savage told Olbermann. "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, that gay-bashing isn't his only hobby."
