Rick Santorum Vanishes (Politically)

Uber-pious presidential hopeful Rick Santorum may not feel hopeful much longer. Here, from the New York Times the Washington Post, is manna for Schadenfreude fans — a passage from a news article on his campaign to get nominated noticed in Iowa, a state where he’s currently polling around one percent despite his strategy to hold town hall meetings in all 99 counties:

In Elkader (Clayton County, No. 74), fewer than 10 showed. In Hamlin (Audubon County, No. 25), it was four people. (“Go ahead,” he told one of them, after the man went on and on about biomass. “I’ve got plenty of time.”)

And in Carroll County, No. 26, the crowd he drew was — zeroIn a moment captured on video by a Democratic “tracker,” Santorum looked around at a near-empty diner, saw no one to schmooze, and sat down alone to drink a chocolate milkshake.

Santorum has fared no better as the CEO of a Christian movie studio that, soon after his hiring, became roiled by internecine fighting, and where he presided over the release of one flop after another.
