rick-santorum

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum scored big endorsements in Iowa Tuesday when evangelical activists Bob Vander Plaats and Chuck Hurley urged conservative Christians to throw their weight begin Santorum in the caucuses. Santorum has been building support and organization in Iowa for months, and his steady-does-it approach is paying off in the closing days of the Iowa campaign.

Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman was a guest on my show today and discussed the leadership transition in North Korea and the dangers it presents, as well as some practical politics including Ron Paul’s slam on Michele Bachmann as a hater of Muslims. “[I]t debases the whole political debate,” Huntsman said, and of course he is right. Huntsman also distanced himself from Gingrich’s attacks on the federal courts. The transcript of the interview is here.

Newt also figures in this “report” from the Des Moines Register Iowa Caucuses blog
. The headline announces “Newt Gingrich to gay Iowan: Vote for Obama.” The story doesn’t suggest the reporter actually heard the exchange. The report identifies the man as a Democrat but it does not quote Gingrich on the exchange if any exchange even happened. If the voter declared himself a gay man, a Democrat, and a supporter of same sex marriage and Newt declared “then your candidate is Obama,” that is hardly controversial, anti-gay or news of any sort. The silly season is descending when the collision of campaign inactivity and Christmas shopping drives reporters to invent angles rather than simply taking off a couple of days.
