Rick Santorum: Evil, stupid, or both at once?

Jacob Sullum catches the ex-Senator in an awkward moment:

Yesterday in Concord, New Hampshire, a member of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) asked Rick Santorum, “As a champion of family values and keeping America strong, would you continue to destroy families by sending nonviolent drug offenders to prison?” Santorum’s response: “Uh…wow…the federal government doesn’t do that.”

Sullum, of course, presents plenty of evidence that the federal government does imprison nonviolent drug offenders.  He concludes:

Santorum, who as a Pennsylvania senator in 1999 voted to increase federal penalties for cocaine and methamphetamine offenses, surely is aware that the laws Congress passes put people behind bars, breaking up their families in the process. Instead of forthrightly defending that result as an acceptable cost of trying to prevent Americans from consuming certain intoxicants, he pretends no real humans are hurt in the service of this never-ending, never-succeeding chemical crusade. Despicable.

Quite.
