"Something from the state of California" lies to Rick Santorum, and Santorum pays it forward

by Monica Jones in


The Colbert Report nailed Santorum in a non-frothy way for his outright lie about California colleges not offering history classes. Dead rat with vote sticker It's like kicking a dead rat now that Romney has for all practical purposes locked up the Republican nomination, but when I Googled "frothy" the other day, Santorum was hit No. 5. His impact on Google search terms will long outlive his political career, at least.

And here's a backhanded but sincere compliment to Republican primary voters: From a sea of batshit crazy, awful and possibly evil candidates, you picked the least awful option. There's hope for your party yet. Congratulations.
