Don’t worry, kids — Newt and Kanye haven’t cornered the market on cray quotes. And sure, Mitt may be stealin’ Eminem’s beats, but it’s Rick Santorum who we’re throwin’ into the sound-off stadium with none other than the Real Slim Shady! Are y’all ready for our next installment of everyone’s fav “Who Said It?” game?! Rapper or Republican!

So for serious, what could Detroit’s volatile mega MC have in common with this hardcore right-wing GOP Prez primary candidate? Check it: Both have been accused of homophobia and misogyny (those are fancy words for hatin’ on LGBT peeps and women) — Shady for his controversial lyrics, Santorum for his super conservative views on same-sex marriage and contraception. Plus, these two are no strangers to high-profile beefs – Eminem famously threatened to beat down Moby at the 2002 VMAs (ironically because Moby called him a “”a misogynist, a homophobe, a racist, and an anti-Semite”) and the former Pennsylvania Senator has a “google problem” thanks to sex columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, Dan Savage.

Wait, there’s more! They make “fashion” statements, too: Marshall Mather’s platinum crop-top and Santorum’s stately sweater vest, anyone? Then there are those catchy nicknames (Slim Shady, Rooster). And oh yeah, they both have no problem gettin’ aggro with the media.
