'Blessed are the mean-spirited ...'

Granted, we are way, way beyond the looking-glass and anything can happen in this GOP presidential race. But I sense another corner has been turned.

Prediction: Rick Santorum is about to start his downward trajectory to political oblivion. Seemingly taking leave of his senses over the weekend, Santorum actually said this:
“President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob!” [big applause] "I know why Obama wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image." [bigger applause] “I want to create jobs so people can remake their children into their image, not his.” [delirium with arms raised to Jesus]
After all, Santorum implied, only effete liberals go to college. The university is Satan's playground. "Real Americans" work for a living, preferably in a deep coal mine, by god. And this from a guy who after graduating from Penn State went on to earn -- wait for it -- a MBA degree and a law degree (with honors, no less). Can u spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e? Once again, I don't know who is scarier: Santorum or the people applauding him.
