Rick Santorum, a presidential candidate who is concerned about the breakdown of trust and public morality, explains when it is ok to swear at a reporter:

A defiant Rick Santorum on Monday defended his weekend attacks on both Mitt Romney over health care and on a New York Times reporter, saying, “If you haven’t cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you’re not really a real Republican.”

“I just said OK, I’ve had enough of this you-know-what,” Santorum said on “Fox & Friends,” referring to why on Sunday he accused reporter Jeff Zeleny of “bulls——”. “And so that’s what I did and you know, look, we’re out there slugging away … and we’re mixing it up.”

Once again, you are not more conservative if you say "I believe in limited government". You are only conservative if you say "I believe in limited government" while thumping your chest and punching a hippie.
