Rick Santorum: 'You Can Kill Things and Still Like Them'

By Abbey Stone, Hollywood.com Staff

Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum likes Big Bird plenty, he told CNN host Piers Morgan on Thursday. He also, however, wants to kill and eat him. No, this is not a joke, just a very poor choice of words.

Santorum appeared on CNN Thursday to discuss how Mitt Romney fared in his first Presidential debate with President Barack Obama. During and immediately following the debate, it was Romney's remarks about defunding PBS (and with it, Big Bird), not his stance on health care or the Wall Street bailout, that had everyone buzzing. And so, this is the point that Santorum chose to address with Morgan.

After Morgan asked Santorum if he, like Romney, would ""kill Big Bird,"" Santorum said, ""As a matter of fact, I've voted to kill Big Bird in the past. So, I have a record there that I have to disclose."" He should have stopped there. But, luckily for the Internet (not so much his reputation), Santorum continued. ""That doesn't mean I don't like Big Bird. I mean, you can kill things and still like them. Maybe to eat them, I don't know.""

Let's rewind a second. ""You can kill things and still like them.""

If Santorum ever decides to run for president again, at least he'll know he has the murderer demographic on his side. Unfortunately, convicted felons can't vote for President.
