The column is about Santorum, the GOP-led miss on ratifying the UN treaty for the disabled, and the Tea Party.

This commenter rings true:

"... this is a mostly the result of the birth control pill. ...the unintended consequence was that thoughtful people started planning and limiting their family size, while the super-religious and ignorant did not. This is why 50 years later, we are a nation of %$&*&, and Rick Santorum has a platform instead of a one way ticket to a mental institution."

%$&*& stands for the very gentle insult Numb Skulls (as one word), which I am shocked to discover is disallowed by the TMF profanity feature. Numb Skull? Really???
