Village vs Community -- No Comparison

Little Ricky "Man-on-Dog" Santorum has a new book out, the title of which I won't mention because I don't want it to have more Google hits than it truly deserves. He was on the Stephanopoulos show today (transcript) flogging the book -- and himself, naturally. [No, not that way, dirty mind.]

At one point he called Hilary Clinton a radical feminist because, among other things, her book, It Takes a Village, held that it took more than just a family to raise a child. In the same sentence he also said, "we need strong families and strong communities"...

So I guess in Little Ricky's microscopic view of the world, there is a H-U-U-U-G-E difference between a village and a community. It's just those of us on the lunatic fringe, here in the reality-based community, that can't see it.

BTW, the idea of life in American small towns of the 1950s is at the very core and is the epitome of the idealized vision of Republican values. And, as anyone who ever lived in a small town in those days can attest, everyone knew you, everyone knew your parents, and if you got out of line, either they would correct you themselves, or rat you off to your parents.

And that my friends is the very definition of It Takes A Village.

Fucking moron hypocrites.

So, would that make Santorum the village idiot or the community idiot?
