do you smell that?

it's the scent of desperation:
U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum accused state Treasurer Bob Casey of "aiding and abetting terrorism and genocide," saying yesterday that state pension funds are invested with companies linked to terrorist-sponsoring states.
hey, but two can play at that game. rick santorum, after all, is a major proponent putting social security funds into the stock market. given the number of individual accounts that would involve, some of that money would inevitably end up in those same terrorist and genocide companies.

here's another shocking revelation: rick santorum's employer "has links" to terrorist and genocide supporting states too. it even has an office in some of those states. why just by accepting a paycheck from his employer, it is exactly the same as riding into a village in darfur and slaughtering all the people there solely on the basis of the color of their skin. i can't see any difference at all.

clearly the only way that santorum can take a strong anti-genocide stance is if he stops getting that paycheck. but i'm afraid he lacks the fortitude to do it himself. luckily, we can help.
