For all the criticism (no doubt some of it well-aimed) of Santorum, he remains my favoured candidate. Doug Wilson has managed to sum up far better than I could why that’s the case,

let me make something clear here — if it were not clear already. Politics is not for perfectionists, and my support for Santorum is not that of a diehard partisan. In other words, I really like his moral courage, and I believe that moral courage on basic Ten Commandments stuff is the order of the day. I want that first, certainly. But that is not all I want. I can easily envision a scenario under a Santorum administration where some lunatic economic decision would be made, one that would have me dancing in a tight little circle in front of the television, yelling and waving the remote. I can totally see that. And then if I were to calm down enough to post my sentiments on the matter in this space, it would be totally beside the point for someone (yes, you) to post a comment along the lines of what gives, “didn’t you support Santorum?” All right . . . just so that is noted.

And that, friends, is what I would have liked to have said if only I had half the eloquence of Wilson.

  1. A climate denier who thinks that any government attempts to encourage ecological responsibility constitute a phoney theology of earth-worship. A Zionist who thinks that it’s ok to break international law by repeatedly threatening war. A supporter of the corporate takeover of political discourse through unregulated spending. And yet another exemplar of US messianic exceptionalism.
