Santorum: Republicans ‘not after smart people,’ have dumbass, idiot, racist vote locked up

Addressing the Values Voters Summit, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Republicans will never have “smart people on our side.” While most objective observers will wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Santorum, he wasn’t finished describing today’s conservative demographic.

“The smart people aren’t with us, but we need to remember who is,” Santorum added. “We have almost all of the idiots, 93 percent of the racists, 91 percent of the homophobes, and pardon my language, but nearly all of the dumb asses out there. What we need to do is to acknowledge where our strengths are and exploit them.”

The revelations appear to be somewhat shocking, as much for their candor as their veracity. Santorum acknowledged what critics of the modern conservative movement have  been saying for quite some time. His clarity and forthright speech might be seen by some as a mistake, until you take into account the target audience.

The Values Voters Summit has been a haven for the uneducated and the educated but misinformed since its inception. More than a few attendees have reported being disappointed in the values presented, apparently hoping for a great price on a microwave. Santorum publicly admitted that the candidates are trying to lower the bar for the lowest common denominator when it comes to the American electorate on the conservative side of the spectrum. He explained that encouraging idiocy is the best hope the Republican Party has for the future.

“We cannot win on our policy, we cannot win on our initiatives or the values we hold so dear. What we must do is continue dumbing down the average voter so that a majority of them will vote in ways that are absolutely against their interests. We love idiots, and we pray for more dumb asses. We all know how to blow our racist dog whistles,” Santorum lectured.

Polling by Fox News points to early data indicating the disclosure has helped conservatives.

“I like that they’um ain’t to highfalutin to speak to us all on ‘er own level,” said Bubba-Dean Marteen, a self-described conservative from Tulsa. He isn’t the only voter reveling in the sheer bliss of utter ignorance and thanks to decades of attacks on education by Republicans, the ranks are indeed growing.

“If we can keep making stupid not only acceptable but favorable, we can’t be stopped,” Santorum said in closing. If one doubts if the strategy is sound, just look at the polls. If a pair like Romney and Ryan can garner enough support to have them in the running, the idiocracy is upon us.
