Speak English

by evanmcmurry

Moments like this help me understand Rick Santorum’s appeal. This guy goes to Puerto Rico ON A CAMPAIGN STOP and tells them they’re not going to be a state and they need to start speaking English. Dumb and close-minded and quasi-racist? Yup. But he didn’t change a word of it to get a single vote (and didn’t get much more than a single vote). I stand by my opinion that being a bad candidate doesn’t make Santorum an underdog candidate, but I still understand how a Republican going into the voting booth can, in relation to Romney, see Santorum as the authentic choice. #despair
