The Gift of Rape

Only in the bizarro world of Rick Santorum and his fruitcake followers. A little more than a month ago the piously-puritanical candidate for the Republican/Teabagger nomination said this during an attempt to clarify his position on abortion (h/t Wonkette):

"I've always, you know, I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created -- in the sense of rape -- but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given you."

A gift? Sure, and this gift was delivered through the gift of rape accompanied by the other wonderful God-given gifts of pain, anguish, fear, psychological terror and sometimes the gift of suicide. What a God. What a candidate.

Stretching a bit, does this mean Adolf Hitler was a gift as well?

Santorum is seriously twisted. The Repugs/Teabaggers deserve him. Truly a gift to the nation from God.
