Rick Santorum, Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh Walk Into A Bar

As stated in my previous post, there are no Democrat scandals anymore, but there are certainly Republican ones. While this is hardly a "scandal" it might meeting the proverbial "Watergate" criteria for Rick Santorum.

Drudge is the nation's editor. What's on his page is what's talked about. Some have accused Drudge of doing Romney's bidding. I don't think Drudge takes order from anyone. However, the fact that he's headlining this story about Santorum's comments on the USA and the devil from a few years back is intriguing.

But where it really gets interesting is the comment from Rush Limbaugh as Allahpundit explains:

Rush Limbaugh defended him half-heartedly on his show today, noting that the media thought it was cutesy-poo when evil clown Hugo Chavez compared Bush to the devil a few years ago but conceding that Santorum will “have to deal with it. He’ll have to answer it. I don’t know. It’s just not the kind of stuff you hear a presidential candidate talk about.”

If you're making Rush cringe, you've got a problem. This may turn out to be a big nothing, but I suspect if Santorum starts to sink, this might be where it starts.

And if this post doesn't annoy Santorum supporters, this post from Erick Erickson surely will.
