Rick Santorums lonely quest to leave his stain make his mark on the GOP 2012 field has forced his campaign to become especially resourceful, and his staff has risen to the occasion come through for him this year.

It hasn't been easy for him, either.  He has been the victim of vicious homosexuals who took umbrage at his comparisons of gay sex with man on dog sex.

Santorum told the DesMoines Register he, his wife and kids would be making and canning home-made jelly at home and
 

“We are bringing them to the Straw Poll and we are going to give everybody a sample...”

TPMnotes that:

In the 1840 presidential election, one thing the opposition Whig Party did to cement its momentum from the economic depression was to mount a national effort of handing out hard cider at campaign events, tying it to the manufactured image of nominee William Henry Harrison as a rugged outdoorsman.

Other contestants will be offering their own treats, notably Michele Bachmann, who is bringing in manly-voiced country superstar Randy Travis, and Ron Paul, who is refunding 30 of the 40 dollar registration fee for his supporters.

With competition like that, Santorum may very well himself be toast.  

Which makes his jelly almost the perfect compliment to his candidacy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
