I am appalled with Iowa giving Rick Santorum's candidacy a boost. He has got to be the least plausible, dumbest contender of all in the Republican field.
It only confirms my contention that voters fall back on superficialities in primaries in which they are asked to consider the qualifications of eight candidates. Still, Santorum? Say it ain't so, Iowa!
Iowa voters may be clueless about this Pennsylvania reject and his deplorable record, but one of that state's journalists who covered his two terms in the Senate should be required reading for New Hampshire and North Carolina G.O.P. voters. Will Bunch Of Philly.com posts the lowlights here: Will Bunch blog.
It was quite late when Santorum made his sanctimonious "victory" speech after Tuesday's vote count, so most of you probably missed it. Find it here: Santorum speech.
Not since Nixon's Checkers speech has a Republican so shamelessly pandered to a gullible electorate while wearing his sincerity mask. This is a classic example of how Republicans put a phony face on in public while intending to favor policies behind closed doors that would continue leading America further down the path of a plutocracy.
Dont get me wrong - all the G.O.P. candidates are loathsome. Santorum is the most loathsome of all.
