SANTORUM: IT'S NOT ABOUT SEX

"keep your sex life to yourself, whether you're homosexual or heterosexual." Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)
Aside from the few in the audience who boo'd Stephen Hill (the soldier who asked the question), Rick Santorum's reaction was noteworthy because of his answer to Megyn Kelly's follow-up question, on whether or not he would reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) if he were electe... well, if hell were to freeze over.

In making the case for his dream of reinstating DADT, Santorum says, "keep your sex life to yourself, whether you're homosexual or heterosexual." The former Senator forgets that the discussion has progressed from there.

Really, it's not about sex at all. 

The military is full of brave men and women. And I bet they would be livid with Rick Santorum's insinuation that all service members are incapable of seeing past a person's sexual orientation. 

Santorum needs to stop using his 2006 talking points.
