"Unfortunately for [the MSM], Stacy McCain and I were there," writes Peter Ingemi of DaTechguyblog, on the scene at a Rick Santorum Town Hall in Concord, NH yesterday in the run-up to Tuesday's primary. "I shot the entire exchange, and when you watch it, two things are clear: 1. Santorum is on the offensive, NOT the defensive. 2. The students are unable to cope with his arguments. (Jim Cole/AP)

"Is this any way to pick a president?" asks Charles Krauthammer rhetorically, answering his own question with a resounding "Yes!":

Absolutely. It works. It winnows. And it has produced, after just one contest, an admirably worthy conservative alternative to Romney.

We were thrilled to see the venerable Dr. K. had come to the same conclusion we had, as argued in yesterday's somewhat controversial (among our twitter friends) post, "Amazing Grace: Is Rick Santorum the new Sarah Palin?"

    The Frothy Mixture is the new Newton Leroy/Herman Cain/Rick Perry/Michelle Bachman/Sarah Palin/Fred Thompson ….
    Face it, patriots, you’re stuck with the Scientologist cyborg. In a few months you will all be singing Mittens’ praises, and falling all over each other to demonstrate how fully you ALWAYS supported him.
    How does this reality make you feel?

    Karl Rove sees danger for Mitt Romney from this upstart commoner Rick Santorum. http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2012/01/karl-rove-questions-value-of-romney.html

    I wonder what Real Americans will think of The Frothy Mixture’s pro-life creds, when Mrs. Frothy Mixture had an abortion at 20 weeks to save her own life?

  4. Corey says:

    Mrs Santorum did not have an abortion and to suggest that is a pathetic lie.

  5. Ragspierre says:

    UAssMORON has Frothy Mixture coating every orifice in her hate-twisted fat old carcass, including her eye-sockets.
    And of course she lies. It is all the Collective has.

    Is this the best the Republican Party can find? He toes the line for the Religious Right, but voted for many gun-control bills.
    Plus, he’s a loser:
    In the 2006 election, Santorum lost by over 700,000 votes. The 18-point defeat was the largest margin of any incumbent Republican senator ever.

  7. USA American says:

    What do you geniuses call inducing labor at 20 weeks?

  8. USA American says:

    The Frothy Mixture’s supposed principles would have your wife or my wife die. He is rank, crawling hypocrisy. The ideal Teatard candidate.

    As far as I have seen among the GOP field, Romney has realistically the best chance at beating Obama at this juncture (maybe Santorum will later — too early to say). I know this all could change in a heartbeat…but the election is not about ideology, it’s about image (as much as I hate to say it). It’s about who looks good on camera, who is the most articulate and who at least seems to have an upbeat, compelling workable vision for improving the future. Obama has proven himself to be arrogant, abrasive, thin-skinned and misguided in his political agenda. He’s not stupid — so, quite frankly, I believe that he either thinks he will easily win in November against any candidate, or he just doesn’t care. His approval rating are lackluster. If the GOP fields a decent articulate, charismatic candidate, it will win in November. If it promotes a lukewarm personality or only regionally popular candidate…we get 4 more years of unbridled left-wing politics.
    Reagan, Clinton and GW Bush all had lackluster approval ratings going into their 2nd term elections, and all won…not because of their overwhelming popularity…but because their opposition was very weak, dull, unconvincing, or otherwise off-putting. The GOP has golden opportunity here if it plays its cards right…

  10. BR says:

    Uh, no. Mr. Bush won his second term most memorably because he was running against Kerry, the original and well known flip-flopper (invented the “was for it before I was against it” meme). Lessons not learned will be repeated.

    More on your “principled” conservative savior: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/attytood/The-Santorum-that-America-doesnt-know.html
    Like I said: The Frothy Mixture is a festering hypocrite. The perfect Tea-hole candidate.

  12. Tennwriter says:

    I talked to a lefty today and one of the charges he made was Santorum’s wife had a partial birth abortion. Now having some idea of who Santorum is, and how the Left Just Makes Garbage Up, I told him that he probably believed in Trutherism and Flat Earthism or something like that to which he took offence, but my not retreating, he stopped on that line of attack.

  13. USA American says:

    That’s a remarkable anecdote about you staring down your evil adversary with nothing but the steel of your resolve and the conviction of your right-ness, Tennwriter. Now, back to Earth: What do you call inducing labor at 20 weeks?
