Rick Santorum auditions for role of "Herr Starr"

Herr Starr and the GrailStarr (at right) was the sadistic killer who ran a secretive religious group that secretly controlled the world and the direct descendants of Jesus in the acclaimed comic series called Preacher. They kept to their Templar roots by wearing a white suit with a red tie.

Starr, despite his macho appearances, had a sexuality that was complicated at its best. He wound up dragging the rest of his organization down with him as he tried to control ever more.

And for some reason, Rick Santorum chose to take the whole Starr milieu and make it pastel.

The parallels are … disturbing.

Two violently religious men whose bizarre obsessions with other people's sex lives threatens to destroy them. Shave Santorum's head, give him the bloodline of Jesus, and watch the fireworks.
