Yesterday I came across an article on the Internet that sickened me. It revealed that during his US Senate campaign in 1994, Republican Rick Santorum warned voters of a growing menace and evil wandering the streets of America: single mothers.
Those that know me well can attest that it isn’t easy to disgust a woman like me, but reading the ignorant and blanketed ramblings of Rick Santorum regarding single moms made my head spin.
Why? Because I am a single mom. And a damn good one.
