DES MOINES, IA (USA)

Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum got 25 percent of the ballots cast in the Iowa caucuses, a strong surge in his presidential bid for the G.O.P. nomination Tuesday.  Initial impressions were that there was a mix up in the voting, where results were instead based off the quantity of Google searches for each candidate as opposed to actual Iowa voting; however that rumor was dispelled early Wednesday morning.  As it turns out, Rick Santorum credits his surge in the polls to hiring infamous Walt Disney Propaganda Machine, which gained notoriety during World War II making anti Nazi Propaganda.

Disney, which produced many shorts during WWII, promoted citizenship and created animations portraying the Axis as a violent enemy.  Just under 70 years later, Santorum has hired Disney to produce shorts for the Santorum Campaign.  Some of their more popular shorts have included “Vote Santorum, He’s Not a Jew,” and “Since corporations are people, Google is an Asshole.”

Disney and Santorum have received some criticism from the Liberal Media however; as they feel many of the ads have an anti-Semitic and anti-Gay undertones.  One ad in particular called “Voting Democrat means The Gays Win,” had many in the gay community upset.  However curiously the gay community was less upset about the fact the ad had been made, as Republicans gay bashing has become a bit of a standard practice. They were more that Donald Duck was the character chosen to portray Homosexuals in the short, because “Sailor Suits are soooo tacky.”
