Rick Santorum has received yet another distinction. A Survey USA poll released yesterday puts Rick's job approval rating at 39% and his disapproval rating at 53%.
This poll makes it official, Rick Santorum is now the least popular member of the U.S. Senate. Congratulations, Rick.

man...how do people like santorum, so soaked in hypocrisy, get out of bed and smile in the morning? You'd think that that level of putresence would show physically at some point.
Actually, he can't really do much of anything until he screws his pants on.
"You'd think that that level of putresence would show physically at some point."
Well, he has this portrait you see...
seriously, if people outside the mid-atlantic knew more about about his record, he could have been voted least popular senator EVER. and yes, i actually do think he could have given mccarthy a run for his money...it would be a toss up.
You should not make fun of people because they are ugly. Poor Ricky's face was caught in an elevator door when he was small. He's disabled.
Well, he's just trying to follow up on his triumph of once being voted the stupidest man in the House of Representatives. I think the comment in tha article was something to the effect that he was so stupid you expceted to see a big wind-up key sticking out of his back.
The scariest part of all this will be his mysterious re-election in November. All part of the ReThuglican electronic vote control, mixed with the upcoming convenient terrorist attack (substitute "Iran Invasion" if so desired). These criminals will gain two Senate seats and 4-6 House seats, creating a super-majority that is Filibster-proof. Our Progressive movement will again be shocked.
ipu4me, I think we are soul twins, I was thinking exactly what you were typing. Should we start a poll on what his margin of victory will be? He'll probably start out with a couple thousand votes on the machines...damn Pubbies, can't win without cheating.
Actually, if that douschbag wins in November, it's a sign that America deserves whatever happens to it in the future!
Sorry, I meant Filib-u-ster. Still distracted by the $3.65/gal. I paid for gas this morning.
So what does this mean when the President is six points less popular than the least popular Senator? Is the GOP gonna stop running against Congress anytime soon? (Taking control of Congress didn't stop them. I think they think that voters still think that Congress == Democrats.)
It must have been a difficult choice. Senator Santorum beat out Conrad (Abramoff) Burns, Libby (Duh) Dole, Kay (little bit of purjury) Hutchinson, Ted (bridge to nowhere) Stevens, Pat (no inquiry/no truth) Roberts, Bill (blind trust/blind diagnosis) Frist, Saxby (swift boat) Chamblis.
All of that man-on-dog sex was bound to catch up with him somehow (and trust me, no one is happier about that than me. Woof!).
My favorite Santorum moment was when Harry Reid called the Senate into closed session, and Bill Frist, Santorum and others were so caught off guard, all they could do was cry and scream up a storm at a press conference. The puss on little Ricky's face was absolutely great.
GO BACK TO WHEN SANTORUM WAS FIRST ELECTED AND THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE IN CALIFORNIA. ON THE SENATE FLOOR, MR SANTORUM SAID THAT STATES SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN DISASTERS. WHAT A JERK.
Ricky-I'm-a-homophobe-and-that's-all-I-am-Santorum....poor little hate monger bigot.....boo-hooo!!!....he can't hide behind his bigoted scapegoat-the-queers Rove-strategy anymore because Americans have wised up to this dumb fuck..what a piece of shit he is..what a disgrace to this government....all the religious criminals who destroyed this country in the process can rot in hell..
There's a fellow I knew in college like Sanctimonious Santorum. Later we learned he was a closet homosexual. I wonder if little Ricky is a bit gay?
I find it rather ironic that your tagname is ''Stupid-No-More'' and yet you can write something as completely erroneous as that in this post. And the articulate style in which you added it was a classy touch >.
It's a shame your Liberal Party which used to be a proud party defending America before 1968, is now encouraging the ENEMY to strike us agin. You have no real intent to defend our country.... just to promote your Liberal party's politcal agenda. And Ironically since most of you live on, or near, the Atlantic and Pacfic coasts.... you'll be the first targets of Osama, N Korea,and/or Iran!!!!! I would think you'd be concerned about the future of your own kids and grandchidren, more than a political position that you think will help the Liberal DEM party. But my experience with Lib's is that they never think further ahead than what's best at the time for their politcal LIB party. WHY IS THAT?? Care to respond??
That should clinch it. The hypocrite is out of here! We must keep up the heat because politics are fickle. We cannot even imagine what he might try next.
Do we need Jimmy Carter to oversee the elections in November? Perhaps an alternative counting method to 'Diabold'
No elections should be legal without a paper record !
Nice try Jack (oops, I mean Rick):
You actually put to sentences together..although a bit long winded like your whines
If we had more senators like Santorum this country would be better off. His values and ideas are top notch only to be distorted and shot at my left wing crazy tree hugging aclu loving hippies who have no clue how to govern but can always complain about everything the conservatives do. Maybe the left should do more than trash conservatives if you want to win something. Here's a thought, come up with ideas an go on TV. God knows there's enough of a forum with a dozen 24 hour news networks.
I watched Santorum on CSPAN for an hour. Everything he said was ignorant, and either urban myth or Limbaugh-type spin and lies. Penn should be embarrassed to have ever sent this guy to Washington.
Well, it is hard to consider him a Senator for PA. He doesn't live in PA, his family doesn't live in PA, but he did expect the local PA school district to pay for his kids home schooling in Virginia.
Unfortunately, the Democrats have hand picked an opponent who seems to agree with virtually every position Santorum stands for.
True, Casey isn't much better, but We will settle for any improvement at this point.
I think that the tuition angle may be what causes conservatives to dump him.
And yes, we are ashamed to have voted him into office.
Speak for yourself. Casey is every bit as bad as Santorum. Personally I think Chuck Pennacchio will beat him in the primary, and Pennacchio is a true progressive in the Paul Wellstone tradition. There are an awful democrats who will not vote for Casey even if Santorum is the alternative. That ought to tell you just how bad Casey is.
I live in Pgh. and don't know ANYONE who likes him or can even say his name without looking like they want to puke. Check out "Savage Love" to find out the definition of his name. How can his numbers even be THAT high?!?! I think he has a true personality disorder and needs to be committed!
Santorum's supposed "approval/disapproval" ratings are awfully close to Berlusconi's just before the recent Italian elections. Pennysylvanians, brace yourselves. Do you have electronic voting machines? Hope not.
When I see this guy all I can think of
is Terri Schiavo. How all the right wingers had her walking and talking,
and how her husband beat her. We all
know how that autopsy came out. I don't
remember any apologies to Michael. We
need that seat back. Git r done.
for all those casey naysayers, yes hes pro life, but no it doesnt matter as long as democrats regain control of congress. any legislation supporting his conservative positions would never see the light of day in a democratic-controlled senate.
heres to majority leader harry reid in 2006! hurrah.
Casey is strongly pro-life, and would jump at the chance to ban all abortions; he is pro-gun, pro-Iraqi war, anti-stem cell research. And those are just the views that he has stated. No telling what the other ones are, like the environment, indidivual liberty, etc.
This is the person the Democratic Party in PA has foisted upon itself. Hard to see much difference between him and Santorum; would be like a 'Zell Miller' Democrat - a reliable R vote.
Well you all know why... its a conservative state. Stop whining and get use dto the fact that a hilary clinton type is never going to be a senator in pennsylvania.
You are completely forgetting that the vice president is a member of the senate and his approval rating was 18 % as of February.
Rick Sad-Torn-Rectum epitomizes everything wrong in politics. He's arrogant, hypocritical and meglamaniacal. He cares nothing for regular people and their problems and only lives to line his own pockets and the coffers of his corporate masters.
Hopefully this poll means that Americans are FINALLY waking up and realizing what a scumbag this guy is.
I am no Bob Casey fan ... but I'd vot for Satan over Ricky boy. They're both evil ... but Satan has the edge on experience and cuddliness!
Thank the Good Lord that slimey piece-of-shit Sanitorium does not even come close to representing us out here in California. Isn't it funny how the states that continuously re-elect Sanscrotum types like oh, say Okalahoma, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi....you know, the idiot states- are always the first in line to get Federal grants for schools, health care, etc. These shit-head states live off the rest of US!
Sanitorium, Sanscrotum, funny, funny, but the serious is that the states that support his kind of gov-mint are the first in line to get federal grants for schools, healthcare, while decrying the "welfare states". Eh get it together, do you want help when you need it from gov-mint, or do you want the needy to just "go away" the way these gov-ers want you to do. Katrina-like.
You have to choose.
The federal tax dollars that Santorum seems to have brought to PA are for his 'foundations', which just happen to be run by staff members/former staff members, who draw large salaries. PA sends out far more tax dollars than they get back. Santorum won last time by pretending to be a very moderate person, and ran against a terrible candidate. You can fool some of the people some of the time......
However, Santorum is Republican point person on lobbyist 'reform'. I guess his experience with the K Street lobbyists (Abramoff, et.al.) and getting companies to hire Republicans is the reason.
Central PA is ultra conservative, so that is his base.
Hey - there's a good side to this rating, at least for Texans. Santorum has replaced our John Cornyn as least popular Senator.
No, wait. Cornyn hasn't improved any. The whole damned Senate has just gotten worse. Santorum and Cornyn make me (ALMOST) nostalgic for Phil Gramm.
I think it's disgusting the way the left-wing thought police has gone after Santorum. How dare someone be conservative and political? You people have no decency.
When the truth comes out about how conservative (PRO-LIFE) Bob Casey is, Santorum will get a boost. The left-wing hate machine can't cover the truth forever.
This is the best chance for the Democratic party to embrace a truly progressive platform and show the country what liberalism is all about. Chuck Pennacchio is a near-perfect candidate--and takes no corporate PAC money. Yet the establishment tepidly pushes out Bob Casey. Fools!
Chuck Pennacchio is what Pennsylvanians need.
I'm with Ryan. Santorum's poll numbers are in the tank, but it's wrong to think that means anybody can beat him. Santorum is a vicious campaigner. Once Casey comes out of hiding and the voters see he's Santorum-lite, Casey's viability will tank (like his gubernatorial run against fast Eddie).
A true Democrat like Chuck Pennacchio -- who's also a tough campaigner -- is the way to beat Santorum.
When he has been here in our local county for our fairs, Rick has stayed hidden in the back of his crowd, eating. He didn't talk to one of the elderly people that came to ask him something, he let his handlers do that. Must not have had a good photo-op.
He did make the NYTs [A Religious Push Against Gay Unions]. I think this is going to be his big push but at $3.10 for a gallon of gas, it is the wrong push.
Right now his main supporters [my neighbors in the area] are so angry they could spit nails and it isn't about gay rights. Hey when the average income of the area is 24,000 a year it hurts.
While I have no great love for Rick.. Just read my site.. The okokokalready post isn't me. I am not sure where that came from or who is was but it wasn't me. I would have been less ahem.. verbose on the description of Rick and more PC on someone elses site. Totally different style and I save my rants for my own blog.
Did you know that the so called christian zelot anti gay sanatorum rented his house in plum boro to a gay couple? What a hipocrite he really is.
rick satoriom.is a idiot george bush suck-ass.he agrees with w on all his policys,rapeing the middle class,and having gasoline at 3 dollares a gallon.he is a chump with bush,cheney and the oil boys.what happened in iraq,when we invaded them.oil rich country.now we are paying 3 dollars for agallon.and 2000 casualities.for what.exxon.the ceo retires with over 300 million for his retirement.they must have forgotten about enron.thiefs,with w blessings to gauge the american public for gas.no wonder the rag-heads hate us.so much for saudi arabia and our war against terroists.rick,you have been around for too long,and you haven't done nothing yet for the betterment of western pa.i hope bob casey jr.kicks your donny osmond cool-gate smile in novembers election.
rick santoriom is a spoiled idiot.who else can turn about face,and screw the voters.he is for families,but yet,he rents his house in plum to 2 gay boys.so much for family values.if the price is right,i rent my plum home to 2 faggots.wow rick,you still suck.i just hope casey beats your sorry-ass.john lennon
Dont forget that ricky dicky was the one who blamed the workers at us air for the company going bankrupt, Nice bush touch ricky boy. And the first time he got elected he ran to get votes by saying his opponet doug walgren did not live in the state of pa, How is your mansion in VIRGINA doing mr hipocrite ricky dicky? And when he won the last time he barely beat harris wollford, Ricky boy even lost his so called home county last time aroung, 3 strikes and your out ricky dicky along with some of your other stooges in the senate, It was funny that smoke stick ricky just payed a vist to the pittsburgh area his good ole home town and all he got was booo,s and the middle finger from the crowed, He for some reason did not have that big shit eating donny osmond big teeth smile on his puss, And knock it off ricky with the black hair dye and invest in some rogain and dont worry ricky dicky i am sure that after you lose in nov that the walmart ceo,s will put you on the board of directors so you can continue to screw the working class peeps over just like you are doing now,And he can always get a job posting for a colgate toothpaste commerical, Sanatorium makes me want to vomit everytime i see him on the boob tube, I never seen such a suck ass SOB hipocrite.
Rick Santorum is NOT for families!!! He is a fraud! He only cares about his own family. I wrote to him about how we were defrauded, do you think I ever heard back from him? HELL NO!
As far as liberal bigots...well check some of the sources that are unbiased that rate Ricky.
Santorum is very good at whining on the Hannity (another GOP chickenhawk) show about the pro life movement and Schiavo. Yet look at what he does for those with medical problems and the newborns.
The American Medical Association and the American Public Health Association rate Santorum a zero on public health.
The League of Conservation Voters and most other environmental and conservation sites rate Santorum a zero (well he did make ten percent on the LCV 2005 ratings after series of zeros) on environment and conservation. Even the GOP conservationists rate him a zero.
Tell us Mr anon why Santorum should be ou state representative.
I want to thank the creators of this website for publishing such a forum for the open expression of ideas. I want to also thank all of the "open-minded" liberal bigots for openly posting such clearly rabid, fascist ignorance. Seeing the depth of depravity reached to put-down Santorum shows me that Rick Santorum needs to be elected. It has motivated to make a nice, big fat donation to his reelection campaign. And to think that this started with a google search for Cornyn, who by the way will also be getting a nice big donation. If its going to keep them in your liberal craws it will be worth every penny. Thanks again.
Rick Santorum is nothing but a fake! He never smiles and needs to get out of office! That man piosses me off to no end! Cocky thing!
I was watchimg the FNC channel the other night and it seems even the republicans are getting sick and tired of this ricky dicky sanatorium as he always seems to get into trouble every time he opens his big arrogant mouth, Sanatorium is a asshole and its time to send him packing in nov.
ANyone seen Rick the Dick on Hardball and Meet the Press lie his rear-end off aggressively and deflect questions away with Urban legends of Shiites and Sunnis being in kahoots?? Does this guy know anything about the history of that region? Is he watching the civil war in Iraq? Did he follow the Afghan sectarian strife with Shia/Sunni? WHat the HELL is he smoking? It kills me that these people just lie and lie and scare and scare trusting Americans to coerce them into a victory.
The videos are on the video section of www.msnbc.com just search for Santorum in the search box when the video appears.
What a total piece of garbage!! These are the kind of politicians George Carlin talks about.
