During an appearance on a radio show, Rick “Dan Quayle 2012” Santorum advised his party marry off all single mothers as a strategy to eliminate the “Democratic Advantage.”
Mr. Santorum, as an (attractive, educated, witty, intelligent and compassionate) woman of a certain age, I’ll tell you, the pickings are pretty slim. Marrying off all us shameless hussies who are either divorced or never bothered to put a ring on it in the first place is a mighty tall order.
The way I see it, you can either push a wheelbarrow up a steep hill OR you can choose the much simpler, albeit long-term solution.
I added the progeny of all the GOP hopefuls -- I mean eventual registered voters. If we include Huntsman, the six GOP candidates with hats in the ring have 31 offspring. And that’s not including all those foster kids Michelle Bachmann cared for. Add in the Palin Five and McCain Seven (and I haven’t even tallied the grandkids yet!) and you can surely turn the course of GOP politics. What about the Bush twins and all those cousins?
Now, I realize all the prodigal kids may not align with the party of Reagan. Case in point, Ron, son of Ronald and Nancy. But, still, the numbers are pretty darned impressive! What if you encouraged every registered Republican to have between five and seven kids. If you can get this behavior to continue for the next four or five generations, you’d have it in the bag for decades!
And let’s not forget, lots of those Prius-driving Dems might decide against adding to the planet’s overpopulation. Granted, you'll need to get busy to eliminate the Kennedy/Brangelina contingency.
So, instead of attempting to pair up all the single moms, why not take a cue from the Book of Genesis?
Be fruitful and multiply!
