Santorum gets heat about Satan and called fake like Bigfoot

Gee, Rick Santorum tends to be associated with some really fringe stuff, from the pornographic to the paranormal.

Today, we see the former senator, now running for the Republican presidential nod, get looked at cross-eyed because he once talked about Satan attacking America.

Blogs get devilish over Rick Santorum

Conservative bloggers slammed the mainstream media Tuesday for attempting to marginalize presidential candidate Rick Santorum for comments made about Satan, but many others on the right saw the backlash over Santorum’s comments as a legitimate reason to doubt his effectiveness in a general election campaign.

The blogosphere erupted after the Drudge Report pointed to remarks Santorum had made in 2008.

“Satan has his sights on the United States of America,” Santorum said in a speech at Ave Maria University in Florida. “This is a spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country – the United States of America. If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age?”

Metaphor? I don’t think so. He REALLY believes this stuff. While the article doesn’t talk too much about Santorum’s Satanic references as much as his faith-based comments, it also mentions “zombie” ideas. So, the I’m spinning this post on all the monsterous things just for fun. (The truly scary thing is actually Santorum’s worldviews – so conservative, they go backwards.)

So, for added humor, check out info on the new Ron Paul ad, where Bigfoot once again reappears in the Republican rhetoric. (He sure is popular with that crowd.)
Bigfoot goes after Santorum in new Paul ad – Washington Times

The Ron Paul presidential campaign released a new television ad Tuesday morning claiming that rival Rick Santorum sold out conservatism with a variety of “not groovy” votes in Congress — even likening the former Pennsylvania senator’s claims to the conservative mantle to the myth of Bigfoot, the legendary sasquatch.
