Eugene Robinson: Rick Santorum's Stillborn Baby Story Is "Very Weird"




Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Eugene Robinson doesn't think voters will be "down" with how Rick Santorum and his wife mourned their stillborn child.

"He's not a little weird, he's really weird," Robinson said of Santorum. "And some of his positions that he has taken are just so weird that I think that some Republicans are off-put. Not everybody is not going to be down, for example, with the story of how he and his wife handled the stillborn child. It was a body that they took home to kind of sleep with it, introduce it to the rest of the family. It's a very weird story."

"And his positions on gay people and gay marriage are just offensive, objectionable and so totally wrong. It is, you know," Robinson said of Santorum's social conservative values.

"This is a guy who should never become president, in my view," Robinson said at the end of the segment.

Earlier this week on FOX News, liberal radio talk show host and commentator Alan Colmes mocked Santorum for the baby incident.

"Once they get a hold of the crazy things he's said and done like taking his two-hour old baby who died right after childbirth home and played with it for a couple of hours so his other children would know that the child was real," Colmes said on FOX News on Monday.

Later that day Colmes tweeted an apology to Rick Santorum for, what he called, his "hurtful comment."
