Andrew Sullivan on Santorum

| February 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Andrew Sullivan has a grudging respect for Santorum because Santorum is willing to defend in public the looney views that the Republican primary voters demand of all the candidates. Say what you want. You know where he stands. Romney? Not so much.

Key quote:

And, by the way, those Washington pundits now huffing and puffing about Santorum’s extremism? They should have spoken up a long time ago. Or tell us now what substantive differences there are between Santorum’s apocalyptic war-mongering and Romney’s; or between Santorum’s belief in erasing the difference between politics and religion and Romney’s. Or simply acknowledge they have no principles but defeating Democrats by whatever means necessary.
