i don't like santorum, but "Savage's readers voted to define santorum as: "the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex."" is really immature and only cements the wedge between the right and the left.

That happened back in 2003.

The most cogent justification I've heard for the neologism is a remark by Savage, quoted in one of the earlier Wikinews articles: "... it is an insanely dirt joke. It is vile, as are Santorum's comments about gay people."

The most cogent objection I've heard (irl) to the neologism is that it's a cruel thing to do to all the other people in the world whose family name is Santorum.

Indeed, both these comments have merit. :)
