Next Job For Santorum? You Guessed It ... Cable TV Ranter

Outgoing Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), who was crushed in last month's mid-term elections, may soon have a future as a television pundit.

Santorum has been negotiating a cable deal, which political insiders say most likely is with Fox News Channel -- though MSNBC and CNN have been mentioned as well -- "to be a screamer," as one political operative put it.

"You could see that as a pretty easy transition for that guy. He likes to get up and speak," a Republican State Committee official told the Patriot-News, a Pennsylvania daily.

Santorum is also expected to go on the lecture circuit, where he likely would earn $20,000 to $50,000 a speech, according to several estimates, addressing corporations and interest groups.

Maybe he and Scarborough can have a show together where they punch each other as hard as they can, over and over.

I'd watch that.

He can't lobby for one year after leaving office - this is a stopgap job

I am grateful he evidently is staying the hell out of his beloved "home" state, Pennsylvania!
But I expect him to start his own lobbying operation and make really big bucks as soon as the one year expires.

I've heard some crazy shit from RW pundits... but I'll guarantee you, Santorum will put them all in the shade for crazy-ass rhetoric. Just wait and see!

and when he occasionally complains about a conservative, maybe people here will praise him

just like they praise Joe "dead intern" Scarborough

What a bunch of Nasty quizlings you all are. From what I recall, Santorium, wasn't afraid to profess his views and stand behind them, even though he knew they sink his political career and embolden Liberal lunatics like the dolts that keep this God Foresaken blog in business. God Bless him. And Merry Christmas, D-bags.
