Losing presidential candidate Rick Santorum is testing out a career as a paid speaker, and BuzzFeed reports he could be getting up to $50,000 for each appearance.

Santorum promises speech topics on things like "The Dawn of an American Renaissance" in which he will "chronicle his battles for the dignity of all human life, his effort to protect traditional marriage and his struggle to reverse Hollywood's and the mainstream medias onslaught against virtue."  

Also among his list of suggested topics is "The Gathering Storm of the 21st Century," a title which sounds awfully reminiscent of that 2009 antigay "gathering storm" ad from the National Organization for Marriage, which was widely spoofed.

If you don't remember it, watch the Stephen Colbert parody below.
