Signorile: “Santorum may just as well have called the kid a ‘f-g’ “

Mike Signorile at HuffPo:

Over the past few weeks it seems Rick Santorum has accused anyone who even remotely gets under his skin of being a “bully.” He called Mitt Romney a “bully” back in February. Earlier in the week, at a campaign event in Wisconsin, he called unions “bullies.” And he accused New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny of trying to “bully” him.

But an incident at a campaign stop at a bowling alley yesterday betrays that Santorum is so obsessed with bullies because he looks at one one every morning in the mirror.

According to Reuters reporter Sam Youngman, who tweeted what he heard, Santorum had some advice for a little boy who was reaching for a pink bowling ball: “You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera.”

Santorum may just as well have called the kid a “f-g.” Or was there some other thing he was implying the kid would look like if he used the pink bowling ball? I can’t think of one, can you?
