From ThinkProgress:

Yesterday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) delivered “a lecture on Islam” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Hoo boy.

Santorum said he believes Muslims’ religious views cannot be changed or altered, so Middle Easterners reject American, democratic ideals.

“A democracy could not exist because Mohammed already made the perfect law,” Santorum said. “The Quran is perfect just the way it is, that’s why it is only written in Islamic.”

My head hurts with a splitting pain I did not know was possible without going three days on only energy drinks and Smartfood and no sleep. Congratulations, Mr. Santorum, you have managed to replicate the sensation of finals week with only 30-odd little words.

Take it away, TP:
Santorum concluded, “I think that if every citizen was fully informed about the war, it would create a commonality between faiths.” Indeed, much work remains to be done.
