Rick Santorum is Full of Shit

I’m not as good as Chad is with this political stuff but I’ve never seen anyone so utterly clueless shooting their mouth off on the campaign trail.  The first thing that struck me is that he told Puerto Rico that the only way they could become a state is if they spoke English, “in accordance with federal law.”  You’d think someone running for the highest executive office would have more of a clue that there are no federal laws establishing an official language in the United States.  Also, he called Puerto Rico a “bilingual country.”  Puerto Rico is not a country (any more).  It’s a U.S. unincorporated territory.

The second thing was that he told a nice and completely made-up tale about involuntary euthanasia in the Netherlands.  When asked about it, one of his spokepersons said that “he was speaking from his heart.”  To me it sounds more like he’s talking out his ass.

    It doesn’t surprise me. You can get away with anything as long as you have someone from your campaign tell people later on that you were mistaken. You know, the bit that less people care about. It’s obfuscation and exaggeration to get the bite heard, then when called on it the real facts come out, and no one gets to hear that. You can blame the campaigns, the media, or the people; whoever you blame, this tactic works.
