How I Would Have Won The Superbowl by Ryan Leaf

Politico, seeking to win the day on the internets, gives space to rejected loser Rick Santorum who explains why he would "just say no" to Sotomayor if voters in Pennsylvania hadn’t already told him to go eat a bag of dicks:

Senate Republicans should do a thorough examination of Sotomayor’s judicial record: Why does she have such a high reversal rate by the Supreme Court? Are there other decisions like the infamous New Haven firefighters discrimination case that would disqualify her?

Her out-of-court statements about her judicial philosophy have been rightfully making news, including her claim that the appeals court is “where policy is made.”

Or her statement that “a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Bias, elitism, the politics of separating people into classes and racial and ethnic pigeonholes are not what one would expect from a nominee of a president who promised to get us past that.

While Santorum adds nothing new that we haven’t read in a million Townhall columns last week, it’s interesting to see Politico creating a whole new genre in  reporting: Political Fantasy FanFic.  I look forward to John Bolton’s Places I Would Bomb the Holy Shit Out Of and Mark Foley’s My Dream Date With Zac Efron.

It’s like Make-A-Wish for the politically terminal.
