Santorum really off deep end now

I mean, this left me agape.
Embattled U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said America has avoided a second terrorist attack for five years because the “Eye of Mordor” has been drawn to Iraq instead.
The number of ways that this analogy is wrong is almost immeasurable -- take that many terrorists are uncoordinated individual actors; that our attack on muslim holy lands is adding fuel to the jihadist fires; that it's not as simple as good versus evil, even if we wish it were -- and that Santorum is willing to appeal to the realm of fantasy to stir up more fear is truly a measure of either his desperation or his self-delusion. Wow.

Reminds me of when George Bush Sr. started to lose it at the end of the 1992 Presidential campaign. Good stuff.
