Sarah Palin’s Santorum Boost

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

My favorite moment on Hannity last night came during an interview with Sarah Palin: “If voters start shifting gears and deciding they want ideological consistency, then they’re going to start paying attention to say, Rick Santorum.”

I put the former senator and governor together in a column this week, as it happens. And if you missed that pre-Thanksgiving Iowa forum, it really was something special. Maybe not crucial for electoral purposes, but cultural ones.  

By the way: When Sean pressed her on whether or not she would be endorsing someone in the primaries, when it might matter to someone, she dismissed her influence at this point, calling herself a mere “pundit” whose endorsement wouldn’t amount to “a hill of beans.” (Video here.)
