I can't believe that I almost voted for the other guy!!! Santorum GETS IT!
From the Bucks County Courier Post:
"...embattled Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has equated the war in Iraq with J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings." According to the paper, Santorum said that the United States has avoided terrorist attacks at home over the past five years because the "Eye of Mordor" has been focused on Iraq instead.
"As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else," Santorum said. "It's being drawn to Iraq and it's not being drawn to the U.S. You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don't want the Eye to come back here to the United States."'Now that I know Rick has a full grasp of the complex and tenuous situation we face in the middle east I feel fully confident that he should stay in DC and keep on representin'! I can't wait until he rolls his 12 sided dice and tells us how to handle this whole North Korea nuclear weapons situation :)
Now that he's courted the geek vote I wonder what analogy he'll use to win back the women?
"Ya' know it's natural to flirt with the idea of someone new, but we all know that Carrie Bradshaw only found true happiness in the end when she stayed with Mr. Big....."
To be fair though, I can't completely disagree with his apt "Rings" analogy-with Rick as a senator I have often found myself feeling very much like a Hobbit climbing up Mount Doom. At least more than usual.............
