When discussing economic and political conditions in the U.S. a friend often jokes that if they continue their current trends he is moving to our sane(r) neighbor, Canada. That’s how I would feel about waking up in a country that elected President Rick Santorum. My antipathy to the man is not new. I despised–a word I don’t use lightly–his backward, intolerant, self-righteous core beliefs as Pennsylvania Senator, and he has not improved with time. Listen to what he says and how he says it–see today’s Maureen Dowd for a sample. He’s the American Taliban. He has fringe ideology. He is running even with Romney in Michigan.
