From today’s Local Rag:
Who says outgoing Sen. Rick Santorum (R., Pa.) is a rubber stamp for President Bush? In one of his final votes in Congress, Santorum voted against the nomination of Robert Gates for defense secretary.
Santorum said he voted “no” because Gates favors negotiating with Iran over Iraq and other issues. If we do that, the senator apparently believes, the Eye of Mordor might zero in on poor Frodo. Or something.
