Santorum’s Chickens Come Home to Roost
[Senator Jim] DeMint, R-S.C., is holding a forum for GOP presidential candidates in his home state on Labor Day. Invitations were extended to Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain.
Santorum? The former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania essentially was invited to watch the event on TV.
Savor the karmic justice my droogs. It’s 1992, and Rick Santorum is Pennsylvania’s principled conservative crusader. Forward to 2004, and Santorum reveals himself to be an establishment hack when he barnstorms the state in support of now-forcibly-retired Democrat Arlen Specter over conservative icon and now-junior-Senator-from-the-great-Commonwealth-of-Pennsylvania Pat Toomey. The best line of that campaign? “A conservative can’t win in Pennsylvania.” Forward to today, and Pat Toomey is the point man for fiscal conservatism for Senate Republicans, Jim DeMint is a national leader for the conservative movement, and the conservative wing of the Republican Party is alive, well, and in power in Pennsylvania.
Rick Santorum? He’s watching from the cheap seats and basking in irrelevance, just like he deserves.
It. Is. Beautiful.
