The earlier post about Rick Santorum reminded me of the redefinition of his name. Check the new standard definition here, the urban dictionary version here, and epistomology of the term here.

Short history: “The santorum crusade began in April 2003 when the Pennsylvanian senator told reporters from the Associated Press that he hoped the United States Supreme Court would uphold anti-gay sodomy laws and compared consensual gay sex to incest, bigamy, adultery, and ‘man-on-dog’ sex. The comments inspired a suggestion from a Savage Love reader that a sex act be named for Santorum ‘so that the episode would never be forgotten.'”
