Santorum lying, lunging, falling...

News & Politics

Rick Santorum, the man you love to hate -- "one of the finest minds of the 13th Century" -- is heading into a tough election year and feeling the heat. After a challenge from the likely Democratic opponent, Bob Casey, that he's failed to ask the tough questions on Iraq, he set his staff to the task of unearthing these "concerns" he's publicly voiced about the insurgency and the constitution, whatever. Except, here's the latest from Jesus' General...

Dear Sen. Santorum,
Your staff made you look like an absolute fool when they failed to find a single quote supporting your assertion that you raised questions about the wisdom of launching the Mesopotamian Phase of the Eternal War to Resubjugate Brown People. We need to do something to change the direction this story line has taken. I think I know how to do that.
You'll have to go here to read the rest. But maybe this helps to understand Santorum's desperation: He's already down 11% to potential challenger Bob Casey. I'm no pollster but for an incumbent that just doesn't sound very strong. (Jesus' General)
