• Rick Santorum Thinks He's George Washington [VIDEO]

    Rick SantorumWell, it looks like Newt Gingrich no longer has a monopoly on absurd historical comparisons. Newt may be the magical offspring of Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill and an albino lion, but Rick Santorum is the next reincarnation of George Washington

    In the latest bio spot running statewide on TV in Michigan, pictures of Santorum and stirring music plays beneath silent quotes from conservative leaders and media clips praising the former Pennsylvania senator. The second quote on the list stands out the most.

    "'Santorum is the next George Washington.' – Glenn Beck" the ad reads.

    You can watch the whole video below …

    Like George Washington, Rick Santorum cannot tell a lie. Except when he's comparing himself to George Washington. And just like the Founding Fathers, Santorum's views on women and sex are stuck in the late 1700s.

    Perhaps the comparison isn't too far-fetched. After all, under Santorum's proposed health care policies, we may all end up with wooden teeth.
