santorum: the neologism everyone should know

santorum (n.)—1. the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.  2. former Senator Rick Santorum.

When you Google the word "santorum," the topmost result is the definition given above.  How could that be?  How did the former senator and presidential hopeful end up with a "Google problem?"  Well...

from Wikipedia:

"In response to comments by U.S. Senator Rick Santorum criticized as anti-gay by gay rights groups[1] and some politicians,[2] sex columnist and gay rights activist Dan Savage began a campaign in 2003 to associate Santorum's surname with a sexual innuendo.[3]"

Hysterical!  And good activism.  Read the entire entry here.
