Santorum Wins Alabama, Mississippi 

In Mobile last week, Mr. Santorum stirred up fears that we’re in the midst of fighting an apocalyptic holy war with Islam, and suggested that the president is ill-equipped to lead the way. He said Mr. Obama has “swept clean all references to religion when referring to the enemy. He won’t say that it is radical Islam…Well, we may not be at war against them, but let me tell you, they are at war against us.”

He also went on an anti-science tear, characterizing environmentalism as “an ideology that puts humans not as stewards of the Earth but as servants of the Earth.” He sneered: “This administration officially labeled carbon dioxide as a toxin. Tell that to a plant! Tell that to all of us who exhale CO2 with every breath. According to Obama we’re all polluters by breathing. Obama sees us all as points of pollution instead of points of potential human beings.”

The subtext, I guess, is that any attempt to mitigate the effects of global warming is, in reality, part of a vast left-wing conspiracy to strip the American people of their liberty.

Will we hang our heads in shame in 10 years when we look back at this??I sincerely hope so.
