who are dancing on the grave of Santorum’s presidential bid, but the bastard is pretty much a shoe in as the GOP vice presidential nominee. There may in fact already be an agreement on that in place between him and Romney.
But on the bright side, Santorum vs. Biden will be one helluva a vice presidential debate.
I dunno, I don’t see it. Romney will be trying to distance himself from the hard right tack he’s had to take during this primary. I’d expect someone more like Nikki Haley, Rubio or Susana Martinez. Plus this primary has been super dirty. I don’t think Santorum’s ego would let him take Romney’s number two seat; he’d probably rather wait and make another go in 2016.
Number two seat…..
Anyways, isn’t Haley under investigation?
A Hanukkah card from Rick Santorum to his Jewish supporters… with a quote from Jesus on it.
I cannot wait for the next debate. Newt has signaled he is going to go after Romney hard in a beautiful spite-filled torrent of nastiness we all know actually defines him.
I had forgotten this. It makes his support for Santorum even more despicable and also highlights just indebted the GOP is to FOX and vice versa.
Nobody had mentioned race or anything even vaguely relating to it. It was in context of discussion of welfare reform, but as Raw Story points out, white people make up the majority of welfare recipients. This looks like it may be an attempt to play into the racist “welfare queen” stereotype popular on the right.
In the interest of fairness, Mediaite looked at it too and is not sure he said “black.” The people at the event, though, seem to think that’s what he said.
I have no idea what Rick Santorum told the crowd at Reising Sun Cafe in Polk City, Iowa, this morning. My guess is the former Pennsylvania senator’s message was a lot like the one he’s brought to Iowa’s other 98 counties—he’s a consistent social conservative, architect of the partial-birth abortion ban, Iran’s worst nightmare, and a culture war veteran with the scars to prove it. But the diner was impossibly small, and so I was left standing outside in the Arctic chill with about 50 supporters and undecided voters, and maybe half as many press. Santorum was just a side-show in Polk City, though. That’s because the Duggars showed up.
That would be the Duggars of 19 Kids and Counting fame, a conservative Christian family from Arkansas. Twelve of the 19 Duggar children are with their dad Jim Bob in Iowa campaigning for Santorum, all dressed in their Sunday best—the girls in ankle-length skirts and the boys with shirts-and-ties. Everyone knows who Jim Bob Duggar is, but he introduces himself to everyone who walks up to him nonetheless: “I’m Jim Bob Duggar, and we have a show called 19 Kids and Counting.” The Duggars duck into a boutique shop next door to the Santorum event and the whole gang takes turns posing for photos with Santorum volunteers and fans. “There’s Josiah, he’s got a gray jacket!” a woman says, pointing at one of the older Duggar boys. ”I watch that show all the time. They’re really strong Christians. I love them,” says another.
Rupert Murdoch is now on twitter. Twitter has officially jumped the shark.
Also, his support for Santorum is just another reason for me to hate him.
