Santorum: Iran poses a threat
Fighting for reelection, the senator said leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad must be stopped.
By Angela Couloumbis
HARRISBURG - U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (R., Pa.) yesterday called Iran the principal leader of the "Islamic fascist movement" that poses the greatest threat to America's freedom and way of life, and said the country must be prevented from developing nuclear weapons.
Santorum also proclaimed Iran's president to be "one of the greatest threats this country has ever seen," and guaranteed that those who don't know who he is or what he stands for will know his name within a year.
"We are at war with Islamic fascism," Santorum argued while addressing the standing-room-only audience. "... And the principal leader of this Islamic fascist movement is Iran, led by a man named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."
"People look at me and say, 'Who is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? I can't even pronounce his name,' " Santorum added. "Well, let me make a guarantee: Within a year, or probably less, every one of you will be able to pronounce Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - you will know him, and know him well."
My favorite parts are the "one of the greatest threats this country has ever seen," line and the making fun of his name that Colbert does as satire but the clueless like Santorum and Gibson do for real, without any sense of how dumb they look.
More on the actions that make Santorum unfit for reelection can be found at places like this. Between his radical fundamentalist views and his primary residence being in Virginia, the man is not worthy of representing Pennsylvania in the US Senate.
