Santorum Wants to Save Us from Satan!

So now we know why he’s running.

Speaking at Ave Maria University in Florida in 2008, Rick Savonarola Santorum said this:

“Satan has his sights on the United States of America!  Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that have so deeply rooted in the American tradition.

“This is a spiritual war.  And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on:  a good, decent, powerful, influential country — the United States of America.  If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age?

“He attacks all of us and he attacks all of our institutions.

“We look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is in shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it.”

All I can say is, “Jesus!”  And have I been right to call him “Savonarola” or what?

We used to laugh when Dana Carvey as the Church Lady said this stuff on Saturday Night Live.  Coming from a top presidential candidate, it’s not so funny.

I got the above quotes from Matt Drudge, and I assume he got them from the Romney campaign.  Mitt is running scared, so he’s trying to scare the rest of us.  It’s working, Mittens, it’s working.

Hell Hath No Fury

That giant sucking sound you hear is the wind leaving Newt’s sails.

Mrs. Newtie #2, Marianne Gingrich, spent two hours being interviewed by Brian Ross from ABC News.  I don’t think they were talking about what a great guy Newt is.

Matt Drudge, who has been carrying water for Mitt this cycle,  is reporting her “explosive revelations” will “rock the campaign.”

But maybe not before the South Carolina primary on Saturday.   ABC is pulling its punches, and has tentatively decided to air the piece on Monday.

Apparently there’s a fight going on at ABC, and someone obviously leaked to Drudge.
