Everyone is out to get GOP presidential field-filler Rick Santorum. The candidate recently blamed Google for his “Google Problem,” blasting the company for discriminating against him because he’s a conservative. Now, he’s irate with Saturday Night Live. This weekend, SNL offered another debate skit in which the seating was arranged “on the likelihood of the candidate winning the nomination.” Herman Cain was front and center, Rick Perry faced the wall, Newt Gingrich and Michelle Bachmann were in a janitor’s closet, and Ron Paul was in the parking garage. Santorum was placed in “a crowded gay bar in the Castro district”:

Watch it:

As the Atlantic Wire reports, Santorum — without having even seen the skit — ripped into Saturday Night Live and “the left” for “bullying” him for “standing up for the traditional family.” “I welcome the criticism, go ahead,” he added. “I’m going to stand up for the values that made this country great and that form a strong basis and foundation for our country which is a two parent family”:

Listen here:

The skit barely featured the fake Santorum in the gay bar at all and, as the Wire notes, “merely reflects the 1-3% the real Santorum is averaging in the polls.” His waning relevance makes these cliched claims of the left’s abuse sound stale, which at this point, is the truest portrayal of the candidate’s campaign.
