Savage vs. Casey

The world's two most prominent opponents of Rick Santorum appear to have clashed.

Dan Savage, author of Savage Love and the man who forever made the Pennsylvania senator's name synonymous with a certain frothy mixture, attempted to direct a campaign contribution towards Bob Casey, Santorum's opponent in this year's Senate race. But the Casey campaign said "thanks, but no thanks"- apparently not wishing to be associated with someone as ribald as Savage. Dan was told to redirect his $2100 contribution to Philadelphians Against Santorum, a grassroots organization.

This comes a day after I heard a negative radio ad by Santorum accusing Casey of- you guessed it- running a negative campaign.
