It's kind of like waiting for a volacano to explode and like the volcano Rick Santorum doesn't dissapoint.
MC: A few minutes before Santorum took to the lectern, he blew up at a newspaper reporter over his coverage of this month's televised Senate debate with Casey on NBC's ''Meet the Press.''''I have to raise tens of millions of dollars because of the junk you feed to the people of Pennsylvania,'' Santorum scolded Brett Lieberman, the Washington, D.C., reporter for the Patriot-News of Harrisburg. Lieberman had approached Santorum to ask him a question about Iran.
If you're a political junkie you have to love Rick Santorum. Watching him flop around the last few months has been great political theater. First he wanted to be Senator Pothole and travelled around PA handing out checks to every local government in sight while telling us he is a fiscal conservative. Then he got Lou Barletta to sponsor a law to further his election year goal of kicking all the Mexicans out of the country. The latest is he wants a war with Iran but that's not gaining traction. So he went nuclear on a reporter. I'm going to miss him.
