Somehow we don’t think we would find this nearly as entertaining if (A) it was in English, or (B) we understood Italian.
“Karen and I are life members of the NRA and we wanted to announce today that I talked to Chris and now Bella is a life member of the NRA too. And I hope it’s a long life.” —Rick Santorum today at the NRA Convention. Bella is 3. [BuzzFeed]
Farewell, Frothy Mix! When I saw the picture of Santorum pulling out yesterday, I was struck with deja vu by the positioning and owl-like expression of his son:
He’s all grown up! Why, here he was back in 2006, the last time Frothy Mix pulled out:
At least this time, they’re not forcing the kid into a sweater vest. It’s Daddy’s turn.
Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign.
We tuned in late, but Frothy is surrounded by three gals and a dude. We’re not sure whether one of the gals is Crying Daughter.
Frothy is speaking from Gettysburg, but he’s using more than 270 words.
The More You Know: The sweater vests were Made in America.
Frothy thanks God for the “miracle” of his campaign. (We were going to say “miracle of his race”, but that didn’t sound right…)
“We were able to spread that message far and wide.” Oh, yeah.
Let’s go to the tape:
We know. We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like: the antiwar, government nig — uh, the — fuh — the, uh — America was a source for division around the world, that what we were doing was wrong, and we need to pull out, and we need to pull back.
Our call? Safe at home. But while we’re there, “We need to pull out” would be our choice for out-of-context soundbite.
