Not The Fox News Gig He Was Hoping For

This isn't the high-paying Fox News gig Rick Santorum was probably hoping for, but writing for World Net Daily will deliver just as much or more street-cred.

Rick Santorum – the former U.S. senator who ignited grass-roots conservatives as a Republican candidate for president this year – today joins WND as an exclusive columnist. His commentaries will be featured each Monday.

His first column? Sounding the alarm about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities, which he contends "crushes U.S. sovereignty."

WND is best known for journalistic masterpieces such as "Bill Ayers admits (again) he wrote Obama bio," and "Obama didn't write his own love letters," and "The birth certificate debate – it's not over," and "Obama's ring: 'There is no god but Allah'," and "Claim: Obama hid 'gay life' to become president," and finally, "Kenyan insiders say Obama was part of takeover strategy." One year ago, he was surging in Iowa; now he's sharing space with Chuck Norris.

More recently, a columnist at World Net Daily called for a whites-only secession movement in the United States.

If Santorum is thinking about running for office again, as he has previously indicated, he's off to a great start. Keep going!

    “More recently, a columnist at World Net Daily called for a whites-only secession movement in the United States.”

    Seems fitting then that Santorum would fit in there, because he seems to have problems with the bla-hs.

    He’s found his home. Nothing surprising about this.

    The Fox gig fell through? (All together now: Awwwwwww.)

    David Weigel informs us that Rick Santorum previously wrote columns for the Philadelphia Inquirer which were pretty anodyne and concludes: “Santorum’s enemies tried and failed to find controversial passages in those columns. Unless Santorum picks up some of the WND style by osmosis, I’d expect the same in his new ouevre.”

    The Frothy One is a nutter, but he’s just trying to keep his profile high among Righties. 2016 is coming, you know, and he doesn’t want to be forgotten.

      I remember when he had the column in the Phila Inquirer — right after the people of Pennsylvania had the good sense to kick him out of office. Spewed the same old/ same old.

    Their stupid rag was already covered in Santorum. They didn’t need to hire him.
