Why I Love Rick Santorum

An amusing Pennsylvanian at best, hardline version of Pat Robertson at worst, Rick Santorum has plucked the heartstrings of a Republican base that have been desperately seeking an alternative to inevitability candidate Mitt Romney.  As the last of the risers-against-Romey to gain momentum, it’s hard to say which of these two nut-bars the back-room deal makers will throw to the wolves of general election season to get rid of them from the possibilities roster once and for all (fingers crossed in the backroom).

I have a friend who interned with Santorum when he (Santorum, not my friend) was a Senator of the great state of Pennsylvania – and it’s important which proper-noun you place the word ‘great’ in front of in this case.  A recent facebook post shared a link to the story “Santorum?  Really?  He’s atop the GOP heap.  Are they nuts?“.  When in a recent birthday greetings I asked if he’s got an ‘in’ on the operation, I received the sane response of “… I’m in disbelief he’s doing this well and praying he doesn’t actually win the nomination…”

Operation James Buchanan Part Deux (without all that single live in the white house and niece acting as first lady b.s.) may be rockier than the media likes to proclaim.

That kind of contrast between supporters and side-liners, the completely 0% change for wider appeal outside of Camp Crazy Christ, and his persistence in taking primary victories as the days continue is why I love this guy – a form of man-love he shouldn’t be ashamed of.  Add to all this the google campaign to push his name to a new definition for a post-butt-coital byproduct and the fact that my spell-check continues to want to update his name to Sanatorium, and what’s not to like.  (Note:  this doesn’t mean there’s anything to vote for in him… well, once it really counts).  The only thing that would make this political cycle more fun-filled is if Hunter S. Thompson were alive and traveling with the GOP for a Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2012.

While checking email today I discovered a new song released promoting Santorum.  I had a listen during lunch and it’s not half bad for a country-grass-roots-get-out-the-crazy-vote-political-candidiate’s song.  I share it here, back to back with another gem I found on YouTube called “Sh*t Santorum Says”.
