President-unelect Rick Santorum made his triumphant return to the Capitol on Monday afternoon and took up a brave new cause: He is opposing disabled people.
Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), declared his wish that the Senate reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities — a human rights treaty negotiated during George W. Bush’s administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, Syria and Saudi Arabia.
Poor Rick, I guess God didn't tell him that He was really supporting Obama and Rick went off the deep end.
That is insane.
More from the article
The former presidential candidate pronounced his “grave concerns” about the treaty, which forbids discrimination against people with AIDS, who are blind, who use wheelchairs and the like. “This is a direct assault on us,” he declared at a news conference.
Lee, a tea party favorite, said he, too, has “grave concerns” about the document’s threat to American sovereignty. “I will do everything I can to block its ratification, and I have secured the signatures of 36 Republican senators, all of whom have joined with me saying that we will oppose any ratification of any treaty during this lame-duck session.”
The treaty requires virtually nothing of the United States. It essentially directs the other signatories to update their laws so that they more closely match the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Rick Santorum joins World Net Daily as ‘exclusive’ columnist
<Over and under on how many posts before some five year old mentions DemocraticUnderground (or whatever) as a "counterpoint"? >"Rick Santorum—the former U.S. senator who ignited grass-roots conservatives as a Republican candidate for president this year—today joins WND as an exclusive columnist," an unsigned announcement on the site reads. "His commentaries will be featured each Monday."
The conservative site is best known for promoting conspiracy theories, most notably about President Barack Obama's birthplace.
Santorum published his first column on Monday, which argues against the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
A former Pennsylvania senator, Santorum won 11 primaries and caucuses during his race for the Republican presidential nomination earlier this year. He said last month that he is considering running for president again in 2016.
