A Complete Bozo

This guy Rick Santorum continues to just amaze me. It's a measure of how repulsive many Republicans find Mitt Romney that Santorum can possibly be where he is today in the struggle for the GOP nomination. I mean, what kind of guy goes on the record saying stuff like this?
We need a candidate who’s going to be a fighter for freedom, who is going to get up and make that the central theme in this race because it is the central theme in this race.
I don’t care what the unemployment rate’s going to be. Doesn’t matter to me. My campaign doesn’t hinge on unemployment rates and growth rates. It’s something more foundational that’s going on. We have one nominee who says he wants to run the economy. What kind of conservative says that the president runs the economy? What conservative says I’m the guy, because of my economic experience, that can create jobs? (source)
He doesn't care what the employment rate is going to be??!! Even if he really believes this bilge, what kind of guy running for president would say something like this with the unemployment rate in the country still well over 8?  "A fighter for freedom?" Just what in the hell does this actually mean beyond the magical "freedom" word?  This guy Santorum unlike Romney, who is a flaming charlatan, is unfortunately a genuine crackpot, though. He truly thinks that his religious convictions are what "freedom" is about. The irreverent media has taken to calling him "the contraception candidate."

I'll tell you what this Santorum candidacy means. It means that the Tea Party loonies of the party have managed to stave off Romney for months. Their effort is going to crash and burn on statements that unemployment is not an issue their candidate for president should care about.
