The third entry on the list (which I just reviewed and can say with confidence that all the rules are every bit as valid now as they were three years ago and if we all followed them, the world would be a better place), starts thusly:
The only sexual activity you need to worry about is your own.
Hey GOP? You hear that? Had y'all been heeding that advice maybe you wouldn't have gotten the (utterly delicious) tongue lashing from Maureen Dowd (“Republicans being against sex is not good,” the G.O.P. strategist Alex Castellanos told me mournfully. “Sex is popular.”), or James Carville (You've got Santorum sneaking upstairs checking the medicine cabinet to see who is taking birth control pills.), or even your own guy David Frum ferchrissake!
Now dig what The Boy Wonder Santorum said in October 2011:
One of the things I will talk about that no President has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the whole sexual libertine idea. Many in the Christian faith have said, “Well, that’s okay. Contraception’s okay.”
It’s not okay because it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. They’re supposed to be within marriage, they are supposed to be for purposes that are, yes, conjugal, but also [inaudible], but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen.
Hm. Definitely an infraction of Erin's Rule #3. Now one of you needs to scamper over to Ricky's house, strap a red ball gag in his mouth, and tell him the only dick he needs to worry about is in his pants.
