Well, those days are long gone as McCain's party has turned into an out of control clown car.
Here is a woman [maybe the same one] on Monday in Lady Lake, Florida, conversing with Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum during a campaign stop.
Lady Lake is home to The Villages, a community of retirees from the Northeast that is over 98% white and helped elect Florida Governor Rick Scott. It is Florida Tea Party Headquarters, so it's not entirely surprising that these folks, who no doubt watch as much Fox News as they can between their trips to the local Golden Corral, are convinced that President Obama is an avowed Muslim and has "no legal right to be calling himself President"...if you don't count something called the "election."
But what is very telling is the way Rick Santorum does zero to correct this woman's [and the accompanying crowd's] delusions. Instead he plays off it and actually validates much of what she's babbling about.
Afterwards, when asked by a reporter about the exchange, Santorum turns into a coward.
This lack of leadership and responsibility are exactly the reasons why Santorum will never see the Oval Office and will forever be remembered more as an internet joke than a serious politician.
