Oh, this is political calculation we could have predicted nearly a month ago. Then we noted there that Little Ricky (Running From Bush) had signed an amendment offered by McCain that Bush wanted quashed. My comment then was that Santorum’™s moral compass was spinning. Since that time Ricky Santorum has skipped a joint appearance with Bush, and now he’™s going to use John McCain to raise campaign funds.

The events are Friday and are being held in private homes on the Main Line, the wealthier western suburbs of Philly. I hope someone gets a protester or two out there.

This is a case of two guys positioning themselves. Santorum wants to look moderate, and he’™s using McCain for that. Damn, I used to think McCain wouldn’™t stoop so low, but it appears he’™s using Santorum to boost his bona fides with the whack job Christians. In the meantime, this is just one more sign of Santorum’™s desperation and Bush’™s lack of popularity, that a guy like Santorum would choose to stand with John McCain over his own born again President.
