Googling Santorum: The Chron's TexasSparkle Makes a Horrifying Discovery

TexasSparkle is the highlight of the Houston Chronicle's "Anyone Can Blog" page.

Kathleen McKinley is her real name, and she's a person who thinks Sarah Palin is a serious individual, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh make sense, etc., etc.

Her bio says she is a "co-host [of] SmartGirlNation on FTRadio for SmartGirlPolitics."

Apparently, though, she has never, ever heard of what happens when you Google "Santorum." We guess it wasn't covered on Fox News, and if Fox News doesn't mention something, then that something doesn't exist.

With Rick Santorum's recent rise as the latest Not-Romney, BuzzFeed took note of "25 People Who Just Googled "Santorum" For The First Time."

Topping the list: Our own TexasSparkle!

The results were predictably hilarious:

For those of you who spend most of your time in the right-wing echo chamber, the Googled definition of "Santorum" is "The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex."

It all began when the bigoted-against-gays former Senator from Pennsylvania went on another of his crusades against homosexuality which, if you don't realize it, is speeding our country to hell.

Syndicated sex-advice columnist Dan Savage had a contest to come up with a definition of "Santorum" that he could then manipulate into being a leading Google result for the senator's name.

It's old news, but not to everyone, we guess. At least until Fox News covers it.
