Dog-on-dog action alert: Where is Rick Santorum when you need him?

We'll have some Rick Santorum-related news later today,  based on his less-than-stellar performance before the conservative faithful this weekend. 

But for now, though, I want to alert him to a disturbing online feature hosted over at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. This story has bestiality, online pornography, the liberal media mocking Christian values ... everything you need to launch a right-wing campaign for President. 

The feature is "Puppy Cam," which was recently added to the P-G site. It features Xante, a golden retriever who apparently is in seeing-eye dog school. I stumbled across the feature earlier today, and in hopes that it would be as edifying as the Clementine exercise video, watched its live mid-day broadcast.

The camera is set up to show Xante's personal living space. And during much of the broadcast that I watched, Xante was asleep. (That's right: the Post-Gazette is one newspaper that lets sleeping dogs lie.) And the saddest part is that judging by the video counter, I was one of nearly four dozen people watching this.

Xante did wake up, eventually. I watched him drink from a bowl. There followed a brief hiatus, where a caretaker put up a sign that read, "Potty time -- back in 10." (I'm guessing they borrowed the sign from P-G columnist Jack Kelly's desk.)

But things got interesting in the last quarter-hour of today's 11 a.m.-to-1 p.m. broadcast. As news editor Charlie Deitch and I watched in horror, Xante literally began humping a stuffed animal in his living quarters. Sen. Santorum take note: This was your basic dog-on-dog action, only with an inanimate object. And it just got worse: Xante then grabbed the stuffed animal in his jaws, and began thrashing it from side to side.

And young children could see this! You didn't even have to click on an "Yes, I'm 18 years old" button to log in! Won't somebody think of the children?!? 

As a public service -- and in an effort to call attention to the P-G's shameless disregard for our values -- I am going to post a live blog of Xante's performance tomorrow from noon to 1 p.m. As a brave Senator once said, "When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected."
