In a gathering of the self-righteous over the weekend, who were celebrating a dying campaign, Rick Santorum said something funny and something interesting, each in its own way truthful.
“We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”
That was the funny thing. Now, the interesting thing.
“When it comes to conservatism libertarian types can say, oh, well you know, we don’t want to talk about social issues. Without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values of America.”
The sign on the door says, “Smart people need not apply.”
