The Santorum Joke

If Mitt Romney wins in Iowa next week, he could find nipping at his heels still another challenger.

Two weeks ago, in post-debate stupor, I woozily compared the GOP race to an action movie:

“If the Great Screenwriter in the Sky is following the…plotlines, after all the car chases, explosions and reversals, the eventual nominee is clear: Rick Santorum. He’s been a bit player who has never had a big scene and, by all conventions of the genre, has to be revealed as the powerful genius who has been pulling all the strings.”

Now, with Ron Paul finding there is no statute of limitations on racist rant, life is imitating my lame joke with Santorum running a close third in a new poll.

Who is he and where did he come from?
