Quasi-frontrunner Rick Santorum has painted himself as a fierce free-market conservative, railing against TARP, the auto bailout, welfare and basically all government handouts.
I guess nobody told him about his congressional record…
[A]s a congressman and then a senator from Pennsylvania, his record often defied those principles when it came to defending the interests of a political and economic powerhouse in his state: the steel industry.
Again and again, as Big Steel faced crippling competition from abroad during the 1990s and early 2000s, Mr. Santorum joined Democratic and Republican lawmakers from steel-producing states to seek special protection in Washington for the industry, including direct subsidies, trade tariffs and import quotas…
[C]ritics, including free-market advocates, said that it was difficult to reconcile the policies Mr. Santorum pursued in Congress with the campaign-trail stance he has taken against government meddling in the marketplace.
But hey, even invisible hands of the free market is one thing have palms that you can grease with a little government cash every now and then.
Speaking of greased skin, doesn't Rick Santorum know what goes on in steel mills? For a guy who hates gays and sex of any kind, Rick Santorum has done more than any other politician to promote Flashdancing.

* Man, I sure hope the Ku Klux Klan doesn't sue Mitt Romney for plagiarism. Things are already tough enough for his campaign as it is.

As the "Rainbow Connection" taught us, the Muppets have always been powerful exponents — puppets, if you will — of the gay agenda. But did you know they’re also vicious, godless communists?
Last week, on the network's "Follow the Money" program, host Eric Bolling went McCarthy on the new, Disney-released film, "The Muppets," insisting that its storyline featuring an evil oil baron made it the latest example of Hollywood's so-called liberal agenda.
Bolling, who took issue with the baron's name, Tex Richman, was joined by Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center, who was uninhibited with his criticism.
"It's amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message," he said.
It’s about time someone brought this left-wing conspiracy to light. I mean, didn’t you ever wonder why these things are called Muppets? "Muppet" is clearly an abbreviation of "Marxist puppet."
As Friedrich Engels wrote, “Communism is the doctrine of the conditions of the liberation of the proletariat. Mahna Mahna. What is the proletariat? The proletariat is that class in society… whose sole existence depends on the demand for labor. Mahna Mahna.”
Liberals have tried to cover their tracks, but it's painfully obvious that the Muppets took Manhattan in order to gain control of the means of production and bring capitalism to its knees. The House should immediately resurrect its Un-American Activities Committee to probe congressmen for adorable songs, felt skin, and great capers.

Get ready, hippy liberals. Because you are about to have your entire mind exploded to death!
Fred Seaman [Lennon's personal assistant] worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon's death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self…
He says, "John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter…
"I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who's an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism.
Wait a minute! Hold the phone! Do you mean to tell me that multi-millionaire John Lennon expressed support for Ronald Reagan — who took office a month-and-a-half after Lennon's death — at the tail end of the least effective Democratic administration in several decades? And he thought — during a time when Soviets were lining up in the driving snow for bread — that Communism is silly? According to some guy?
I'm sure that a lot of liberals are pretty embarrassed right now in light of this new information. I'd expect a pretty big windfall of conversions to conservativism any time now.
