Santorum: Looks Like the Sweater’s Come Off

True Rick

Seems that Rick Santorum was such a genial fellow — until it came time for his fifteen minutes. First came the racial slur (who know “blah” was a synonym for “black”?). Then, there were these strange events where Santorum asks students attending a college convention what’s wrong with polygamy if gays are allowed to marry, then he later argues that the American Psychological Association isn’t a credible research reference when it comes to the well being of kids with gay parents.

As you know, I’m especially interested in body language that captures someone’s public personality at a different angle. This screen shot was captured during the college conference. Looks like the sweater’s come off.
