Rick Santorum, World Nut

News Item: Rick Santorum signs on as World Net Daily columnist

World Net Daily is a conservative website for people who think the Breitbart sites are too sophisticated and high-minded, and that Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller doesn’t go far enough with the race-baiting. Their audience likes Glenn Beck but likely wishes he wasn’t so reluctant to embrace conspiracy theories.

We know Santorum was something of an extremist, but this is a new low. The man who for a time eight months ago was the Republican frontrunner for president is now writing for Birther Central, sharing a masthead with the likes of Jerome Corsi, Chuck Norris and the shrieking anti-Muslim bigot Pamela Geller.

I’m not really sure who should be more embarrassed at the association- the site, or Santorum.
