Former Sen. Rick Santorum plans to formally enter the GOP presidential race next month, starting his bid in the western Pennsylvania coal fields where his immigrant grandfather once worked, advisers said Thursday.But not all the news is good for Camp Santorum. First (and a HUGE hat tip to Tim McNulty at the Daily Santorum) there's this from The Atlantic:
Then there's Miley. From PoliticsPA:
Even Miley Cyrus is getting in on the 2012 action. In a reaction to a recent controversy over retailer Urban Outfitters allegedly copying jewelry designs, Cryus last night aired her criticism of UO President Richard Hayne’s campaign contributions to former Senator Rick Santorum.Here's the tweet:
IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH’ – Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaignNeedless to say, Cyrus is not among those who are fans of Rick's anti-gay bigotry.
PoliticsPA notes that:
Cyrus has over a million followers on the social networking site, and this particular remark was re-tweeted by hundreds if not thousands of people.So that can't be good for Rick. I am not sure how many of those million followers are old enough to vote or how many would have voted for the man with politics so vile Dan Savage named the frothy mixture after him but still it can't be good.
Ok, I am feeling a little guilty about posting that picture.
