A refreshing 32-second palate cleanser. Godspeed, Rick.

Update: via The Hill

“I don’t know why he hasn’t released his tax returns. I think he should,” Santorum said in an interview Monday on the Laura Ingraham radio show. The former Pennsylvania senator added that it was important especially for “someone with [an] enormity of wealth,” like Romney.
“Well, let’s see how he manages his own economy,” Santorum said.

It isn’t clear what exactly Dr. Strange-glove buys through obscurity here. Are we going to discover Romney paid for Kenyans to attend Columbia, or something?

Update II: linked by The Lonely Conservative. And by the way, hasn’t Dr. Strange-glove’s campaign heard of The Streisand Effect? If there is some strategy behind what they are doing, please leave it in the comments.

    Indeed, it was.  Thanks, Admiral, for the morale booster.

    Now, about the lecture on Sally Rotten Crotch….

    Nah.  We’ll discover that Mitt pays the cap-gains tax, not ordinary income.

    Won’t look good to Joe Sixpack.  Just like his Bain-ization of some companies won’t look good to Joe Sixpack.

    Strange election.  Obozo gets most of his money from the Big Banks, just like Romney.  Yet both claim to be ‘for the common man.’

    So long as that man wears wingtips and quarters in a 10 bedroom/5 bath estate, eh?

    How about everyone release tax returns and college applications/transcripts?  Including POTUS.

    Odd, it didn’t seem to be important to Santorum four years ago – when, on the very same Laura Ingraham show, he endorsed Romney “unequivocally” as the best conservative candidate in the race.

    I wonder what has changed?

    Sadly, compared to John McCain and Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney might well have been the best conservative candidate in the race at that point, but that’s kind of like saying a boot to the head is better than a knife to the gut or a meat cleaver to the ankle.

    Well, he sure wasn’t hesitant or showing any reservations in endorsing Mitt, and it is definitely Santorum’s voice.  They have one with Gingrich, too – they are serving like a vaccine against the criticisms now.

    Don’t tell Bachmann about that, though.

    Most of those who pay attention understand Finrod’s point.  So you’re banking on Mittens supporters being not that bright.  Better not tell them what Mittens thinks of them.
