Santorum blasts "jihad" against himself

The Hill's Justin Sink reports:

Rick Santorum said the gay community has "gone out on a jihad" against him for his stance against gay marriage.

"So the gay community said, 'He's comparing gay sex to incest and polygamy, how dare he do this,' and they have gone out on a, I would argue, jihad against Rick Santorum since then," the former senator said at a campaign stop in Spartanburg, S.C., on Friday.

Santorum has been one of the most frequent opponents of gay marriage.

Btw, if you notice, Santorum talks of himself in the third person there. That practice is known as illeism, I just found out.
