This absolutely sickens me. It is the lowest of the low. Liberal Alan Colmes mocks Rick Santorum for treating his dead son with dignity.
Colmes was suggesting that voters would shun Santorum once they “get a load of some of the crazy things he’s said and done, like taking his two-hour-old baby when it died right after child birth home and played with it so that his other children would know that the child was real.”
Notice the word “it.” Colmes said the Santorum’s took “it” home. My goodness, even a child that is born is still an “it” to these lunatics.
National Review’s Rick Lowry responded to Colmes by saying, “To take something that is that personal and that hurtful as losing a child and mocking it like that … that is beneath you, Alan,” said Lowry. “What you’re saying is contemptible.”
In one of the great heartbreaks of Rick Santorum’s life, his wife Karen gave birth to a baby who lived for only a short while. Not allowing the medical staff to take the baby from them, they held the baby and brought the baby home so their other children could say goodbye.
To Rick Santorum, every child should be treated with dignity. For Alan Colmes, a dead child is a punchline to be used for political gain.
Update: Rich Lowry shows a tweet from Colmes saying:
@AlanColmes just spoke to @ricksantorum. He and Karen graciously accepted my apology for a hurtful comment.
I am glad that Colmes apologized but for me it speaks more of the Santorum’s that they didn’t make political hay of this and just accepted his apology.
