    Santorum Hits Back at Bill Maher

    Last Friday, Bill Maher called Rick Santorum's home, where he schools his children, a "Christian madrassa." Santorum didn't, apparently, find this comment funny and shot back at the HBO host Tuesday. He argued on Fox News that "folks on the left" are "trashing anybody who stands up for Christian conservative values, anybody who dares to actually teach their children faith in their home." Maher had made the argument that by home schooling his children Santorum was sheltering them for fear that they "could be infected by the virus of reason." To this, Santorum quipped, "Our children will outreason him. My 12-year-old will outreason Bill Maher when it comes to understanding how logic works, 'cause [Maher] is completely illogical." Maher has given $1 million to President Obama's reelection campaign, a donation that Sarah Palin and other conservatives have urged the president to return.
