Rick Santorum parody Twitter is hilarious and for some, confusing

Pin it

Rick Santorum is well-known for his social conservatism. He's better known for having a disgusting neologism created in his honor by Dan Savage. His over-the-top stance on various issues (particularly homosexuality) make him perfect fodder for this genius, Onion-esque Twitter feed, Rick Santorum PR, which Tweets gay-sex puns in imitation of Santorum's jargon-riddled speech. 

My current favorite is probably, "We need a president with an optimistic agenda. I will provided Americans at the bottom with the upward thrust they need to reach their peak."

Hilariously, of the feeds' 3,000 followers, a fair number seem uncertain that it's a parody feed.  A number of replies seem genuinely baffled, like the woman who tweeted in response to the above comment: "You're a jackhole to even send that tweet. Do you really think the 'people at the bottom' will buy that line of hooey?"

Oh, internet, your constant proof of Poe's Law never fails to entertain. Until I have a full-on breakdown upon the realization that no one can tell if anyone is being serious any more.
