The Corner

I want to be the guy who writes those scroll phrases on the cable news channels

Sometimes they are the weirdest things. Like I’ve seen “Rich Lowry is member of Council on Foreign Relations.”

I’ve caught a few Santorum moments on TV today. Fox news and MSNBC both had some variation on “Santorum is opponent of abortion and gay marriage.” True. (But that ain’t it…) MSNBC just had “Santorum tried distancing himself from Pres. Bush.” Recently I’ve heard him pointing out President Bush is with him 90-some percent of the time (stealing a Casey talking point). But whatever. When I write those lines, I’d include “Santorum was leader in passing landmark bipartisan welfare reform.” “Bono calls Santorum ‘defender of the most vulnerable.’”
