Expect a Santorum Re-Run in 2016

Posted by Paul Constant on Wed, Jun 25, 2014 at 9:44 AM

Rick Santorum is telling anyone who'll listen that he's running for president in two years, and that he's running because conservative politicians aren't conservative enough on social issues. Right Wing Watch brings your daily dose of Santorum:

That’s the problem, is that we have a bunch of people who run the Republican Party from the financial point of view who don’t believe in the party platform and have been trying to cow us into walking away from it.

But the most important question facing Santorum is not "is he conservative enough?" It's "is he pretty enough?" Quin Hillyer at National Review's The Corner blog wrote an entire post gushing over how attractive Republican candidates are this year. I'm not sure what a plastic surgeon could do for Santorum's enormous, shiny forehead, but he might want to look into getting a consultation if the Republican Party is trending toward pretty.
