    conspiracy theory they have about pot and other drugs...

    The polygamy argument is trotted out as a thin-end-of-the-wedge, doom-and-gloom "see where this will lead!" approach.

    I find it to be a two-fer as well--and why wouldn't Santorum want a particular day's campaign strategy to end up garnering dual benefits?

    And why is my nose starting to pick up a somewhat Rovian scent....?

      on one of his themes.  Santorum is getting advice on how to balance his extreme rhetoric with waging political battle against the presumed front winner, Romney.

      I'd guess that Newt is giving him lessons.

        whoever the man behind the curtain is here, little Ricky ain't up to the challenge, from the looks of the vid.

        And, well, if Newty's people are giving him advice, he's doomed anyway. Besides, I can't see how he's ever gonna live down that nasty Google problem, so most of this is rapidly moving into "moot point" territory ;)

          I'm watching Ed who just reported that NH is 60% Catholic, so this might help him.  And then, there's this:

          http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

          The Tea Party dominated New Hampshire Legislature on Wednesday overrode the governor's veto to enact a new law allowing parents to object to any part of the school curriculum.

          The state House voted 255-112 and Senate 17-5 to enact H.B. 542, which will allow parents to request an alternative school curriculum for any subject to which they register an objection. Gov. John Lynch (D) vetoed the measure in July, saying the bill would harm education quality and give parents control over lesson plans.

          "For example, under this bill, parents could object to a teacher's plan to: teach the history of France or the history of the civil or women's rights movements," Lynch wrote in his veto message. "Under this bill, a parent could find 'objectionable' how a teacher instructs on the basics of algebra. In each of those cases, the school district would have to develop an alternative educational plan for the student. Even though the law requires the parents to pay the cost of alternative, the school district will still have to bear the burden of helping develop and approve the alternative. Classrooms will be disrupted by students coming and going, and lacking shared knowledge."

            "Clumsy". How charitable of you, considering we're talking about a walking douchebag of monumental proportion  ;)

              Tomorrow, not so much ;)

              I do think he's going to do very well in NH and probably will come closer to Romney than expected.

              Newt appears to have teamed up with Santorum, at least for now, and intends to do some damage in the next debate.

              I hope Santorum stays in as long as possible.  The more national exposure he gets the better and Romney will be forced to move even farther to the crazy.

            This was a Beavis and Butthead episode a few weeks ago. Funny when B&B did it, not funny when it actually happens in real life.
