flavored with age

Let me say this about that

The thing about Rick Santorum's comments, for which many people are calling for his resignation, if not his head --

"If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual (gay) sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery."

-- is that, well, he's right, and I completely agree with him.

The only difference is, he presumably would have concluded by saying "and therefore, there should be no right to consensual gay sex", and I would have concluded by saying "and therefore, there should be a right to consensual gay sex".
