Santorum is coming!

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is coming to Tucson next week to speak at a Tea Party event.

As the candidate will tell you (well, as he'll tell his supporters), he's offering an agenda based on Christian values. Not based on "a phony theology," such as that followed by President Obama, but based on a real theology, one based on the Bible.

He's also offering a seemingly limitless collection of sweater vests.

And the top Google result for "Santorum" is still ______.

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.

Santorum: “That’s Latin for A**hole”

by JEFFREY ST. CLAIR Counterpunch Jan. 4 2012

Editors’ Note: In honor of Rick Santorum’s sudden emergence in the Iowa caucuses as the anti-Romney du jour, CounterPunch is reprinting this 2003 profile of the Pennsylvania zealot about his career in the United States senate, where he was almost universally reviled as both stupid and mean by his colleagues and staff. –AC / JSC

Rick Santorum had only been in the senate for a few weeks when Bob Kerrey, then Senator from Nebraska, pegged him. “Santorum, that’s Latin for a**hole.” It was probably the funniest line the grim Kerrey ever uttered and it was on the mark, too.
