The Next To Last Day Of February Thinking About Rick Santorum Throwing Up Over JFK
I heard a short rainstorm dripping down in the middle of the night. More of that is scheduled for today, along with some possible electric storm action.
Currently, with the nuclear sky orb having arrived to do its daily heating duties, the outer world is warmed to 60 degrees at my location, according to my computer based temperature monitoring device.
Changing the subject from my favorite one to one of my least favorite subjects, that being the current American presidential election process.
I may be wrong, because I often am, but I think Republican Rick Santorum may have shot himself in the foot by repeatedly saying that a speech made by JFK in the 1960 presidential campaign made him want to throw up.
Opining that an opinion in a speech made over a half century ago makes one want to throw up sounds very un-presidential to me.
JFK was a Catholic addressing the issue of the proper place for religion in the American political system. Rick Santorum, a fellow Catholic, thinking he should be the 2nd Catholic elected president, does not seem to understand the point JFK was making.
If Rick Santorum gets the Republican nomination I suspect it will cause me to do something I did not think I would do again. As in vote for Obama.
