Professing Ignorance: Pennachio Hearts Santorum

Chuck Pennachio is either a complete fool or a Santorum tool. How else can you explain the blithering nonsense that Adam B points to over at Daily Kos? But first, queue the violin music, cause this here is a Penanchio-Santorum love fest (the stuff in italics is me inserting words Chuck wanted to express but couldn't because his heart runith over):
For those of you who wonder about Santorum, yes, he's got an easy smile, he's very engaging, and he's personable. He also has a chiseled chin, sumptuous lips, and eyelashes that set my heart on fire every time he winks approvingly at me and my campaign. One on one, he's charming and has a genuine gift for retail politics. These are the skills that make him a formidable opponent and, unlike that big meany, Bob Casey, a wonderful human being.  It's not until he starts talking (and legislating) ideas that things get scary. So scary that I jump right in his arms and beg him to hold me in his strong protective grasp!
Yes, it's love, and no, it's not pretty.
But the most dangerous thing about Rick Santorum as a candidate other than that hypnotic sparkle in his eyes that screams "OBEY ME!!!" is that he's not above the process -- he's willing to submit himself and his ideas to the voters for inspection just as I'm willing to submit to his overwhelming mental superiority.  In that way, he's actually a lot more honorable and a lot more respectful than Bob Casey, Jr who won't even sob, sob return a single one of my calls sob, sob.  Santorum's got an opponent; he's offering to debate; he's unafraid, and lord knows that what America needs is men who are dumb as a rock and unafraid to keep making the same mistakes, over and over and over and...
In all seriousness, Chuck Pennachio has just proved, once and for all, that you don't have to be particularly intelligent to run a vanity campaign for Senate. I wonder- what will it take for his fantasy fueled fanatic supporters to realize that they are being used by a campaign that stands for nothing other than the aggrandizement of a very little man's immensely inflated ego?
