Smear Campaign of the Day: GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who has been battling a certain “Google Problem” for nearly a decade, apparently thought it wise to have his latest political ad feature a Mitt Romney lookalike firing a brown, frothy substance at a cardboard cutout of his image.
Then again, considering Santorum is now tied for first place with Romney, maybe it was? After all, everyone loves a good poop joke.
In related news, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine — AKA the “guy who got kicked out of Metallica for snorting too much cocaine” — has official endorsed Rick Santorum for President.
“You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities,” he told MusicRadar.com, “and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House… and that it’s Rick Santorum.”

oh. my. god.
it’s like the super soaker oozinator all over again. surely someone, somewhere along the line had an inkling this might be absurdly ill-conceived given the circumstances.
or maybe someone really has infiltrated the santorum ranks, and decided to provide a little ridiculous humor for the rest of us by repeatedly claiming, “no, this’ll work. they’re gonna love it!” at every pr meeting.
