The Smudge

A hateful little gay leftist named Damned Smudge pulled quite a coup a few years back, essentially linking Rick Santorum with gay sex in Google searches.
Here’s Smudge’s definition of “santorum”: “The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.” (Mark Judge - The Deceit of Damned Smudge)
This is illustrative of much of the left. Vile hatred and not much else. The joke's not even funny, no word play or clever turn of a phrase or playing off of some trait.  The name Santorum conjurs up perhaps a Latin dictate from a Pope, not the disgusting after-effects of a butt-plumber break-in.

How sick is it to smear another by imputing to them your own sickeningly foul practices? 

Smudge has harmed his own cause, and that of his fellow tromboning tea-baggers.  By employing such sordid gay sex imagery, he reminds live-and-let-live people of goodwill who normally do not ponder these things why they find such practices so repellent.  "Maybe queers are deviant after all..." 

It's a revealing peek into the mind of a flamboyant self-loather. A gay man who attacks a straight man by linking him to the messy byproduct of a common gay sex practice. Progressives, the supposed champions of human rights, oppose right to work laws, revel in the Caligula circus that is abortion, and gleefully "out" closeted gay people.

The backdoor burglar who pulled the Santorum prank is a smudge left on a bus station bathroom stall after a little tea room sex, probably with a closeted Republican. Worse, his vindictive unfunny smear harms his cause.  Mark Judge probably speaks for quite a few people:
It took me a few years, a job with a lot of gay people, and an essay by Gore Vidal to disabuse myself of the notion I learned as a kid that gay people, especially gay men, are people who think constantly about sex, often filthy unhealthy forms of sex, and that they have no impulse control. I learned that gay people are just like everyone else.
Yet the visibility, indeed the celebration, of Damned Smudge in the media and the culture -- not to mention his demented and dehumanizing sex column -- has brought back that old stereotype. (Mark Judge - RCR)
What do you think?

As so many of the LGBT parades.

As to "Damned Smudge," why are Leftists so disgusting and such liars?

There you go again.

Nothing like a self righteous Adventist to start judging people.

"As to 'Damned Smudge,' why are Leftists so disgusting and such liars?"

No it isn't, and no, they're not.

Would you like the left to judge all rightwingers from the idiocy that comes out of Pat Robertson's twisted little mind; the racism that manifests itself in Limbaugh's daily, hysterical, spittle-flecked rants; or the anti-semitism and racism that social conservative David Duke promotes?

Get a hold of youselves. You are judging millions and millions of people because you're infuriated with what this "Damned Smudge" did?

BTW, until I came here and read this, I had never heard of DS. I had heard of the "Santorum" google bomb, but is it any worse than the unrelenting slander and racism in the blogsphere that characterizes the rights' views of this president?

When it comes to disgusting behavior, the right has no problem laying claim to participating in it as well.

Ducky's here said...

Well, Silverfiddle, a genuine neurosis about human sexuality is programmed into the Abrahamic religions. No reason that Santorum's shouldn't be lampooned.

For all the talk of freedom we here from the religious right it really only involves a certain Calvinist economic freedom. Sexual freedom - forget it. Allowing that freedom is the quickest way for the hoi-polloi to get out of line, right?

Ducky's here said...

here = hear. Before the grammar police get after me.

Silverfiddle said...

I do not call for homosexuality to be banned, and I do not want Smudge silenced.

Just as Pat Robertson's idiotic pronouncements fairly or unfairly bring scorn and ridicule down up on innocent Christians, Smudge's unfunny hatred does the same to his confreres who wisely distance themselves from such flaming stupidity.

May the Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And give you peace.
May the Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And be gracious unto you.

Shaw: I'd like to know who on the right even pays attention to David Duke. He's been persona non grata for decades now.

If you have evidence of people even mentioning him in a favorable light in Right Blogistan please bring it and I'll reconsider.

Smudge has a sex advice column and is frequently mentioned favorably at Kos and HuffPo and other liberal forums.

And I did not judge all gay people based on this lone sick Smudge.

Jersey McJones said...

Santorum brings these jokes on himself. His self-righteous sexual sanctimony is a joke, just like him. And that's not the half of it. He is an in-eloquent simpleton. I watched him when he was in the senate and all he did was make a fool of himself and the voters of PA, who got rid of him the first chance they got. He's the perfect example of why the "true conservative" clowns have risen and fallen like plastic gopher heads in a county fair game - "true conservative" is just another way of saying "true idiot."

Between conservatives revealing themselves as idiots, and the idiots who supported the Citizens United decision (one of the worst SCOTUS decisions in American history), all I can say is enjoy Mitt Romney, gang! He thanks you for all your support! LOL!

JMJ.

Silverfiddle said...

Yeah Jersey, anybody who doesn't think like you is an idiot...

Talk about intolerance!

Last time I checked, people of all stripes and beliefs are free to speak their minds and stand up for what they believe in, even Smudge.

Jersey McJones said...

Silver, the conservative movement in the country completely lacks intellectual acumen today. Even William F Buckley's kid turned his back on it, and Buckley himself, before his passing, wrote of his disappointment with the anti-intellectualism and proudly willful ignorance of the modern right.

This GOP election cycle just goes to prove this - and that's one of the two main reasons you guys are most likely stuck with Romney.

I have never been one of Rick Santorum's fans, and I certainly never imagined he could be our president. I have found his performance in the debates animated, articulate, but a little strident and generally dull.

HOWEVER, late last night I just happened to catch the former senator and his wife at a Q&A session monitored by Frank Lunz (another figure in the Republican-Establishment of whom I've never been especially fond).

The setting was far more intimate than the debates, and the interview was unedited and unfiltered, so for once we got a good long look at the man in question and his wife, instead of some agenda-driven "reporter's" dismal, distorted "interpretation" of reality.

What I saw touched me deeply. RIck Santorum is unquestionably one of the most sincere, loving, deeply principled, kind-hearted people ever to have reached public office. He's also a great deal brighter than I had formerly thought. The relationship he and his wife share is beautiful to behold. Nothing "pretty" or mawkishly sentimental just solid, warm, and permeated with mutual respect.

Nothing seemed "staged," artificial, mannered, or affected. This was The Real Deal -- the kind of relationship the Entertainment and Information Moguls won't even permit us to DREAM about anymore, because they long ago dismissed committed love, devotion, faithfulness, responsibility and lasting affection as "hopelessly square," "outmoded," or "a tired myth designed to keep us in chains all our lives."


While I probably disagree with much that guides Rick Santorum, and have the wisdom to realize -- as I'm not sure he does -- that "one size" could NEVER be made to fit "all" -- I found myself entranced by the interview and gained a great deal of respect and admiration for Rick Santorum.

Should he be our next president?

I see nothing in the Rick Santorum revealed in this candid Q&A session that would lead me to believe he should not.

Nevertheless, my hope would be for Newt Gingrich to be given the nomination. He is the only one who turned in a stellar performance last night, and it was absolutely stunning -- a whole series of home runs hit right out of the park.

If you haven't bothered to watch the debates, I frankly think it's arrogant to assume a definite position on any of these candidates.

Romney's performance managed to be both ragged and turgid. He didn't even LOOK ll that good. No matter what your Masters in the Enemedia keep drumming into your dear little ears, Romney has been pre-selected by the Oligarchs, because he is in fact the WEAKEST candidate we could hope to run against Obama.

With Mitt Romney as our man, I confidently predict our soon being saddled with four more years of The Black Knight in Casablanca.

Jersey: This is not about the "intellectual acumen" on the right, it's about someone attacking another because of his religious beliefs, and doing it in a very un-intellectual way, so spare us the sermons.

What's next, are you going to tell us you worked in a gay bath house once, so you're an expert? I swear, your the Zelig of the blogisphere.

Anonymous said...

Nice. A flaming left gay guy with the appropriate last name of "Savage".

I learned that gay people are just like everyone else. Right - just like me and you, aside from the backdoor antics, cross dressing, and lack of traditional western morals.

The alternate definition of Santorum makes want to toss my cookies into my keyboard.

Anonymous said...

As much as I support Santorum's Pro-Life stance, the story about his family coddling a fetus also makes me queasy.

Z said...

um, Jersey....about Santorum, you said "and the voters of PA, who got rid of him the first chance they got"

Except when they were electing him for Congress and then the Senate, I guess? They sure showed HIM, huh?

Liberalmann said...

Wrong again. Dan Savage started this. And Rick "Man on Dog sex" Santorum deserves it.

Infidel de Manahatta said...

What passes for "clever" or "witty' with progressives is just plain childishness.

Remember the "this bush will not vote that Bush" campaign that the feminists were so proud of? Same thing.

Silverfiddle said...

Liberalmann! Look out! Look up!

Nevermind. It flew right over your head. You can go back to your hopium bong now.

Ducky's here said...

z, L'il Ricky Retardo (R - Theocracy) only received 40% of the vote his last election.

He got his face punched in.

Leticia said...

I am a huge supporter of Santorum, and I believe he may still have a chance.

Smudge is despicable and should be ashamed, which I am sure he is not.

Santorum's past and present speak highly of who this man truly is. He is a man of faith, a devoted husband and father.

I won't even comment about gays and their ummm...sexual deviancy.

Jersey McJones said...

Silver,

You say, "...it's about someone attacking another because of his religious beliefs, and doing it in a very un-intellectual way, so spare us the sermons."

Smudge is "attacking" an "un-intellectual" attack from an "un-intellectual" attacker.

"What's next, are you going to tell us you worked in a gay bath house once, so you're an expert?"

No. I don't know anything about "Smudge" or his site. I don;t care. I don't care for that sort of political commentary. It's pointless, and worse, as it riles up the right, all defensive and repulsed.

Z,

Yes, Santorum worked his way up in Pennsylvania right-wing politics to become a Senator. Then he made an ass of himself very early on and was summarily dismissed.

Leticia,

You should worry less about other people's personal habits that have no effect on you whatsoever. Do you really want to live in a world where everyone believes and acts like you?

Oh! Don't we all, Jersey! DON'T we ALL!

That's everyone's secret fantasy and heart's desire.

Anyone who denies it is seriiosly deluded -- or a bald-faced liar.

Z said...

I'll just say it once more; they elected him to Congress AND the Senate and they killed him for where his house was. And, of course, the entitlement babies are growing up and voting more and more. SOmeone who believes in hard work and self reliance isn't going to fly in States like PA again.

But, of course, in PA, 'rightwing' politics doesn't get someone elected unless at least some of the lib majority likes him, too.


Poor Ducky; I've never met a Catholic more averse to the values of Scripture than you.
I've also never known a Catholic more eager to out a gay person; I'm surprised you haven't yet hinted at Santorum's sexuality, like you usually do when you're this ticked off :-)


Take a look at the picture in SF's post and ask yourself what kind of society celebrates that. man.

Silverfiddle said...

Jersey: The distinction you fail to see is that Santorum does not mock others when he talks about his beliefs.

Also, there have been quite a few Mormon Church burnings, but investigation reveals no Mormons burning gay bathhouses and bars in retaliation...

Finntann said...

When will you get it through your thick heads we don't care what you do when with whom.

Overdisclosure seems to be a common fetish in our society today...it's the oooh! look at me syndrome.

I used to work with a man who would come into work in the morning and regale us with comments like "Yeah, really shagged Momma good last night, I can hardly walk straight".

It is as inappropriate coming from a heterosexual as a homosexual unless perhaps we are far far more than casual acquaintences. The rest of us would look at each other and roll are eyes and invariably someone would make a comment like TMI.

If you can't read other people you probably ought to just keep your mouth shut. I have no problem with freedom or liberation, but you really need to be able to read your audience.

You may enjoy gossiping over the fence like an old lady, but honestly it's a distraction. We'd all be better served paying more attention to our own relationships than those of others.

Cheers!

I'm not all that impressed with Rick Santorum as a candidate for President or his alleged promotion of conservatism in politics where it matters most - in politics (don't forget he endorsed RINO flip flopper and subsequent Democrat Party hopper Arlen Specter against conservative Pat Toomey), BUT...

When he kept hitting Mitt Romney's glass jaw in the South Carolina debate the other night, the first time leaving Romney rhetorical scrambling in the parking lot outside the convention center trying to find it for nearly 30 minutes, it became clear Gingrich is not the sole intelligent conservative on stage, just the more reliably conservative one.

Then for confirmation, I looked over where donations from Mitt Romney's PAC went in the last two elections, and nope, neither Santorum nor Gingrich are members of the Tea-stablishment cavalry of stalking horses for Romney.

Always On Watch said...

FreeThinke,

That's likely, IMO.

Once Romney gets the nomination -- and he certainly will -- the mainstream media will cut him to ribbons to the point that Independents won't vote for him and many long-time Republicans won't either.

Unless we reach the 1980 tipping point, that is.

“The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”

By using this to demonize Santorum aren't homosexuals kind of being self-hating? Why would homosexuals hate a frothy mix of lube?

That is disgusting and shows how hateful liberal homosexual propagandists can be.

Silverfiddle said...

@Liberalmann Letica is a simple minded mental midget.

What? I can hardly understand you...

I can't see you either because you're waaaaay down there...

Z said...

Teresa, that was exactly the impression I got when I read that.
It's like leftwingers who are so embracing of homosexuality until they don't like a Republican and then try to out him; gay or not.
weird

Teresa and Z:

There is a strong undercurrent of self-loathing and life-hating in much of progressivism.
