DAILY GRINDER: San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers Likes Rick Santorum

First Megadeath, then First Love, and now this: San Diego Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers put out a press release saying he thinks Rick Santorum is just great. “I am supporting Rick Santorum for President because of his stance on issues that attack vital Christian values our country was founded upon: no abortion, upholding traditional marriage, defending religious freedom, no euthanasia…Rick Santorum will also fight to create jobs and expand opportunities for all Americans.  I am proud to endorse Senator Santorum and do what I can to help him secure the Republican nomination for President of the United States.” ...there will be justice for the unborn, factories back on our shores, where the Constitution rules our land, oh yes I believe Rick Santorum is our–NO! Stop! Singing! That! Song!

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput says he’ll have a review of the 21 priests accused — but not charged — of sexual misconduct with children done in a couple months. But then who will fight the Obama Administration on contraception? Hmm. Either way, at a fall 2011 Montgomery County invite-only dinner for the Catholitterati, Charles Chaput singled out Monsignor William Lynn, who is being tried in the current Philadelphia priest abuse case, and said that priest had his full support.

So, you know how the new “no texting while driving” law is in effect, right? A national study found that such laws may actually cause more car accidents, because you can’t stop a teenager on his/her phone. One of the theories as to the stats is that to avoid police detection, drivers lower the phone well below window level, meaning their eyeballs are farther from the small screen, and kaboom.

Sens. Bob Casey, Pat Toomey and others have introduced a bill to the Senate which stresses “the importance of preventing the government of Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability.” Last we checked they’re calling the legislation the “They pose no threat, but sure, we haven’t started a new war in a while…and they’re brown, right? Yeah, I think they’re brown” bill.

Casey was also one of 11 Democrats who voted to permit the Keystone XL pipeline and thus strip the president of his power to decide on its existence.

And here he is explaining his bizarre support of the Blunt Amendment, which did not pass but would have denied women birth control in their health care. If you click the link, and listen closely, he explains that he supported the amendment, but seems to argue against what was actually in the bill. I think? Let’s just say he wants Republicans and Democrats to come together, OK? BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT HE WANTS.

City Council President Darrell Clarke, after jumping in on Mayor Michael Nutter’s defense against the union crowd during his budget speech yesterday, introduced legislation that’d create a new water and sewer commission.
