Santorum Scuttlebut

I’m not surprised by the election hijinx of Pennsylvania’s junior senator. Did we forget how he used his credentials to try to win over pro-life voters for Christie Whitman a few years back when she had a tough reelection fight in next-door New Jersey? I spoke to someone today very deeply involved with the Toomey campaign and the word is that Santorum’s flying monkeys (staffers who took time to work the campaign hustings for that great conservative, Arlen Specter) were telling voters – “You know, Pat Toomey’s not reeeeeeeally that pro-life . . .” and other such back-stabbing balderdash (which, sadly, proved effective enough to carry the day for Specter). Also, in the 15th District Congressional GOP primary race to replace Toomey, Santorum backed a pro-abortion state lawmaker, Charlie Dent, over pro-life doctor Joe Pascuzzo. Thanks Rick — you the man!
