And Bush is Gollum?

Every time you think some of these politicans can't be any dumber, along comes one to make you realize - well, yes, they can.

Case in point. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-PA. Santorum is one of the most virulently right-wing senators, an arch conservative, and, thankfully, one of the most endangered in the miterms. He's been consistently running behind his Democratic challenger, Bob Casey, in every recent poll.

He's incredibly anti-choice (he and his wife also keep a jar in their home containing a fetus she miscarriaged years ago, I kid you not). He is incredibly anti-gay rights (he once said if we give gay people rights, the next thing people will be asking for is the legalization of "man on dog sex," I kid you not).

And now, in an interview with a Pennsylvania newspaper, he defends the Iraq war debacle, comparing it to the Lord of the Rings: "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."

Uh, ok.
