Also overlooked is that Gingrich has drifted ever more leftward since he enjoyed the under-the-desk ministrations of the pious Catholic Calista, for whom Gingrich converted to Catholicism.
Santorum, who proudly proclaimed George Zimmerman a murderer, does demonstrate that one should not trust ANY politician.
BINGO. I noticed the same thing. These things also very obviously affected his softness on Illegal Immigration. While I used to love Newt back in the early-mid 90s, when he stood firmly for Limited Government, I could barely STAND either him or Santorum during this past primary election.
Santorum has the same II problem. And I never even KNEW that he made that statement about Zimmerman! But it should not be too surprising, I suppose.
