Santorum with Lipstick

Only in Philly. Protesters outside of the Irish Pub on 20th & Walnut in Philly held up signs, including one that read, "Palin is Santorum With Lipstick", referring to one of the previous Pennsylvania senators, Rick Santorum, known for his religious vigor as applied to national policy. While I didn't agree all too often with Mr. Santorum, I did respect the credentials he had in getting to the senatorial position. Had he been re-elected in 2006, there would have been a strong possibility that he, not the inexperienced Palin, would have been the VP candidate this year, based on his strong conservative streak. As a Catholic, he would have been a formidable opponent to Delaware's Joe Biden, a Catholic himself. I think the "Santorum with lipstick" comment really disses MR. Santorum, someone who probably wants nothing to do with the mess of the Palin-McCain campaign at this point.
The train wreck that is Sarah Palin will most probably be the undoing of McCain's chances to win this November.
If nothing else, this year's election has been quite interesting, capped off so far by the "Do I cancel? Do I not?" behaviour last week of the man of action, Mr. McCain. But who really decided to go through with that cheap move? His handlers had to have had a say in the matter; this doesn't seem to be all McCain's doing.
