The solution is simple: don’t give airtime to lying bigots. CNN’s executives (and Cuomo) don’t yet grasp the idea that they’re not obliged to present thoroughly discredited viewpoints in the name of “balance”.

Keeping Santorum doesn’t benefit CNN in any way. He’s not going to retain conservative viewers for them in a larger media market where Faux is barely hanging onto the Know-Nothing 27% (and only by sacrificing revenue to keep a white supremacist host in a prime slot).

One should keep in the back of the mind (behind the spent pizza boxes) that the word “santorum” has a proper definition:

Santorum [n] That frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

That reminds me of a funny joke:

Rick Santorum walks into a bar. The bartender says, “what time do you call this? Sure, you work for free, but your donkey’s been shitting on the stage for half an hour and we have to pay someone to clean up whatever you don’t eat. You’re a disgrace to that assless gimp uniform.”
