Santorum '08 ???

The Hill reported yesterday:

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) has “no intention” to run for president in 2008, but a media communications firm that represents him has registered a slew of relevant domain names in case the senator changes his mind.

New Media Communications, an Ohio-based Internet strategy company that runs Santorum’s 2006 reelection website, has bought domain names such as ricksantorum2008.com, ricksantorum2008.net and santorum2008.org.
Mike Connell, the president and CEO of New Media Communications, provided Internet strategy to the Bush-Cheney campaign, as well as designing the www.georgewbush.com website in 2000 and the 2004 campaign website.

Again, according to The Hill:

Asked in a 2004 Campaigns & Elections interview where he’d like to be in 10 years, Connell said, “I’d like to be working in a senior position in the campaign to elect Rick Santorum president of the United States.”

Asked earlier this year on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether he would run for president in 2008, Santorum said, “I have no intention of doing that … One of the things I learned … you never say never in politics.”

When pressed if he would serve a full six-year term, Santorum responded, “I never do those kind of things. My sense is that the people of Pennsylvania are — I’m running for reelection, and that’s all I’m going to say.”
Oh, but Lil Ricky, we really want you to say more! We want you to tell us if you're worried about your slipping poll numbers. We want you to tell us if you're afraid that you'll be out of work in 2006 and so are preparing for 2008 or if this is a long-term plan to skip out on your Virginia...err...Pennsylvania constituents. We want to know if we'll be seeing something like this in 2007:

Run Rick Run!! I hope he runs and gets the Republican nomination. Dems will clean up! Mr. "Man on Dog sex" Santorum is am embarrassment to modern politics no matter what party you are in. He is a loser, who would not win re-election if it were held today.
