    That Frothy Mix is willing to take orders from the Vatican if he becomes president. Whatever, he isn't going to be president. He isn't even going to win Michigan.

    •  Yeah, I'm not sure what he means by "the church." (14+ / 0-)

      Last I heard there were some pretty significant differences.

      I think that's why there's a separation of church and state. I'm pretty sure I learned that in about sixth grade. Maybe Santorum was already a Senator by then and was to busy to go.

      Fight until we win. Then we can begin arguing about the details. - Kwickkick (RIP) 2009

      Despite all of the breathless coverage about what MI means, it is not a winner take all state. None of the polling suggests that is going to be anything but a split decision between Romney and Santorum.

      I grew up in MI -  (Southern border of Detroit) and I recall that some of the Catholic schools were quite good at indoctrinating kids to hate other religions. I was tormented and eventually quit my first high school job at an ice cream shop over not stop comments like "I bet you are Jew, you sure act like one," and "You are such a smart little Jew, aren't you?," from both the Manager and fellow teen co-workers. I expect Santorum's overt pushing of Catholicism will play well to some segment of MI voters.

      So: 52 years after John Kennedy (successfully) put to rest one of the more enduring canards of American politics, i.e. that Catholic politicians were, or would be, the tools of the Vatican – Rick Santorum comes along to update the principle: by stating that not only should Catholic politicians be the tools of the Vatican, they basically have to be?

      Progress, I guess...

        That he believes one of two things:

        1. He should be a tool of the Vatican
        2. The Vatican should be a tool of American Politics

        Mind you, after what Benedict recently said about IVF and morality, I have decided that the Roman Catholic Church has relinquished all right to make any statements about morality. Considering that he was the man who wrote the rules on how to avoid having paedophile priests prosecuted for their crimes, he shows himself to be both a hypocrite and immoral.

        And he still looks like an evil little imp.
