Some Words From Santorum

What would have happened if Santorum had become president? This little cartoon may shed some light on that question.

I did this for a class I'm currently taking, but I was curious to see what Newgrounds thinks of it. Don't watch if you're a troll.


I enjoyed it. But like a lot of people state, the effort animation wise was a bit limited. I am not american so I don't know if this is a good portrayal of that guy or not but I do have a thing against the limiting of rights. In this case marriage for gay people. So on that topic I enjoy a bit of religion bashing.

Well, this is slanted. It elucidates some of the reason why I will register to vote but not go to the polls. Fortunately, we won't have to worry about any one of these crazies taking office (first time or once again) because the world will end on December the Twenty-First. Thank God, He thought of everything.

Well, this is a pretty stolid and one-dimensional send-up of candidate Santorum and his exaggerated brand of bible-thumping.

Like I said, this is slanted. Beyond belief. It expresses one point of view and exudes its own sort of bigotry by branding his staunch religious-inspired conservatism as a barometer with which to judge everybody else. What the hell?

It's also a chatty cartoon with a minimum of effects, yet the file size is a bit larger than a previous submission, "Barney Commercial #9". Meebs should take some hints on adjusting audio bit rates to different levels or optimizing the imagery. Also, the writing is stolid, stereotypical, and stupid. It paints Santorum as a complete monster thanks to confirmation bias (looking for only the things that justify your position while dismissing or discrediting anything that opposes it), girded towards a series of poor-in-taste jokes.

The results is that this falls short of expectations. Consult the "George Bush Show" or "The Kerry Kampaign", the latter by Jeremy Lokken. So "Some Words From Santorum" sucks, but there are cartoons to draw inspiration from on Newgrounds. Another shot, this time exposing an actual hypocrisy as an actual political cartoon, rather than nagging at the subject's viewpoint, makes for a far more entertaining presentation any day of the week. The production is lukewarm but can be improved, now all we need is something worth picking on. Any takers?

Well, at first, I mean yeah the animation is very basic, but I thought the texturing was neat and the animation itself semi-reminded me of South Park, the way the characters jittered a bunch. It kept me interested for a bit, since they were switching positions at a decent pace, but that later part when he started talking to the camera was really drawn out and I didn't find it funny. If it ended mutch faster I would've gave it a somewhat higher score.

One : Your flash froze my computer twice. I haven't had that happen in at least half a decade.
Two : Your title is misleading. I don't see what that had to do with Rick Santorum being president. He is going around gay bashing either way.
Three: Those drawings were horrendous.. though you got Rick Santorum pretty good. That's why I gave you half a star ^_^
Four: "Dada.. oh she's learning so fast." Dialogue. I wanted to put my face through the computer screen on that one. Just saying.. nothing here was worth blamming you, but good grief.

My goodness, this was a waste of time. The animation was limited. Most of it was just Santorum standing in one position, speaking. There wasn't much of humour in the video. A couple of Santorum's positions (I guess the animator thought they were inherently funny?), and a few ridiculous statements. They weren't jokes. They weren't funny. Yes, we can all exaggerate things candidates say. We can make them look like weirdos. But it's so tired and dull that if animators want to try it, they should put some actual work into the comedy.
