You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...
How desperate is Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to get re-elected?
When he's not lying about opponent Bob Casey Jr.'s ties to Al Jazeera or making misleading claims about discovering Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, seems Santorum has been asking his supporters to pour thousands of dollars into the campaign of Green Party candidate Carl Romanelli.
"(T)o all the Republicans who supported our campaign, I say thank you," Romanelli told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Facing a double-digit deficit, it seems politics has once again made strange bedfellows.
As the Washington Post noted: "This so-called 'Ralph Nader Technique' has obviously been done before, but what makes this so unique is how vast an ideological difference there is between not just Santorum (pro-life) and Romanelli (pro-choice) but also between Romanelli and Casey (pro-life)."
