Rick Santorum glitterbombed in Blaine [VIDEO]

Rainbow-colored Santorum. Ick.
The streets of Minnesota are running rainbow with glitter!

In the waning hours before Tuesday night's caucus, the glitterati struck one last time at a Rick Santorum event in Blaine, showering the famously anti-gay former senator in sparkles.

"I think he just felt the rainbow," glitterbomb inventor Nick Espinosa said into his own camera, moments after cohort Ben Egerman pulled the pin.

It seems fitting that the candidate that would go on to claim the caucus was the final target. Romney was glitterbombed twice last week, Ron Paul was hit on Monday night in Minneapolis, and Newt Gingrich was interrupted mid-speech by two gay rights advocates at the Mall of America (after which one of the high-school age activists was manhandled by a scary-looking lady). Egerman and Espinosa are calling it "Minnesota Republican Fashion Week."

The tinsel typhoon has been grabbing national attention from everyone from the Huffington Post to MSNBC to The Atlantic -- after the Romney-glittering a writer at Salon opined that the tactic should die. But Egerman insists that going full-court press while the candidates were in town had a message.

"The point is to make Minnesota an unfriendly place for bigots," says Egerman. "When homophobes and bigots come to town they can expect a fabulous new look."

Can't you right-wingers go preach your hate on some other story? There's nothing wrong with trying to spread the message that bigots are not wanted in MN...speaking of that, you should all move and leave this wonderful state to poeple who don't get off on hating one another...

Ironic that you say that in response to a story about people who hate others so much that they throw crap at them.

According to his Facebook page, Ben Egerman "works" at OccupyMN and went to Carlton College and majored in Anti-American Studies.  

Need I say more?

My God.....I thought you were joking.  

See, Ben is a prime example of what is wrong in America.

"I am going to go to college and get a degree in Anti-American Studies and then get my dream job working at Occupy MN and in my spare time, I am going to follow Republicans around and throw glitter at them."

I'm sure his parents must be proud.

 How many names do you use pathetic sam I am?   And replying to your own message to agree with yourself is beyond pathetic.

yeah, you're right, his parents should be ashamed he's standing up for what he believes in and is trying to make a difference in the world.

Yes, and I am most certainly sure that throwing glitter on Rick Santorum is going to make a huge difference in the world.  I am sure that the entire Earth is at peace today knowing that Rick got glittered.  One more thing: The reason why he "works" at OccupyMN is because he got a college degree in Anti-American studies.  I am sure when employers see that on his resume, they are just dying to hire him.  He's a fucking loser, just like those other OWS-goers.

After glittering Rick, Ben and I went back to my condo in Loring Park and we both took turns fucking each other up in the ass and then we both drained our loads into a champagne flute and each took a sip.  Ben has a large, thick cock and I think while he was fucking me, I tore a ligament in my asshole.  I will go to the chiropractor today and find out.

 Anyone have any theories for what it says about sam I am how he writes these fantasies for every story that involves gay people?   I mean seriously, he's written like 10 of these messages that are exactly the same.   I will admit it is pretty funny you type out these detailed sexual fantasies you have thinking it somehow makes gay people look bad.  I bet you became a Republican after meeting Larry Craig in the bathroom at MSP huh sam?   Perhaps in your response you could write two paragraphs about hot guy on guy action to prove to everyone how much you never want to hug and kiss a gay man.    You should meet my husband Marcus, you two have a lot in common sam.  Seriously, this is the creepiest weirdest thing anyone types on the boards.  Congrats.

I guess he should just be happy that he was glitter-bombed, and not santorum-bombed...
