    Please oh please get rid of Santorum. He is an absolute moron:

    Embattled U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said America has avoided a second terrorist attack for five years because the “Eye of Mordor” has instead been drawn to Iraq.

    Santorum used the analogy from one of his favorite books, J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1950s fantasy classic, “Lord of the Rings,” to put an increasingly unpopular war in Iraq into terms any school kid could easily understand.

    “As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum said, describing the tool the evil Lord Sauron used in search of the magical ring that would consolidate his power over Middle-earth.

    “It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S.,” he continued. “You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”

    In a similar vein, Progress for America already annoyed me.

    And as for “the eye of Mordor” being drawn to Iraq, I wonder how the Iraqis feel about that. Odd how it’s OK to have wars ‘over there’ so we can avoid wars ‘here.’

    Which ad? The name of the organization is a bit of a curveball. I was expecting a left-leaning group. Evidently not.

    So all we need to end the war is a few giant mobile trees!

    Somebody, quick, take his dice away and confine him to his dorm room, before the police find his body in the steam tunnels under the Capitol building, dressed like a 15th level Drow Cleric.
