Santorum Soon to Claim Vatican as his Residence

Rick Santorum writes stupidly. I need a tag of ‘œStupid Santorum’ on these stories, or something like that. This time Santorum implies that he’™s a resident of Philadelphia. While Santorum is the worst writer hired by the right wing Philadelphia Inquirer, even he may know he lives in Virginia. Perhaps he should move to the Vatican.

Commentary By: Steven Reynolds

In a truly insipid column today in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Rick Santorum, the failed Republican and former carpetbagger Senator from Pennsylvania, implied that he lives in Philadelphia, though surely his driver’™s license says otherwaise. Santorum spent many a year claiming to live in western Pennsylvania while actually living int he DC suburbs in Virginia. Now he evidently wants to claim Philadelphia as his residence. It is a simple little line amidst Santorum’™s insipid railing against Nancy Pelosi, a complaint that is far more ‘œmore Catholic than thou’ than it is logical or substantive. In the line Santorum describes Philadelphia’™s Cardinal Rigali with the possessive pronoun ‘œour.’ From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

The pope heads a long list of church leaders who have used the speaker’™s comments to teach the faithful. It includes our own Cardinal Justin Rigali.

I’™m not Catholic, but I could rightly claim Cardinal Rigali with the posessive pronooun ‘œour,’ since I live a mere fifteen blocks from Rigali’™s office. But Santorum lives in Virginia. For Santorum, Rigali is clearly a Cardinal in a different jurisdiction than his. But the guy has long claimed to be of a region he has long abandoned as a resident. I suppose his mostrously oversized ego is at fault here rather than Santorum’™s faults with geography.

Just another episode of Right Wing Pundits Gone Wild. Move along, nothing else happening here.
