Every column provides ample new material. Today we learn that Rick Santorum stands for working Americans. He's not one of those effete Harvard men, he's an everyday American who believes in everyday Americans. So it's very good that he's doing well. The evidence that Santorum stands for everyday, working Americans? 1) His economic proposal slashes the top marginal rate. 2) His economic proposal cuts capital-gains and dividend tax rates, so that they are barely above that of the lowest marginal income tax rate. 3) His economic proposal cuts corporate taxes in half. Yeah. Working man. Alright. Brooks also neglects the following extreme Santorum beliefs (or maybe glides over them quickly, I can't quite remember and article is not at hand). By extreme I mean that most Americans, and an even larger percentage of people in the developed world, do not share these views - 1) Climate change is "junk science" (Rick is not an elitist, but he's a Ph.D. climatologist in his spare time) 2) Intelligent design, not evolution (Rick is not an elitist, but he's a Ph.D. biologist in his spare time) 3) Liberals caused Catholic priests to go bad and abuse children, that's why so many cases happen in Boston (Rick is not an elitist, but he's a Ph.D. sociologist in his spare time) 4) His energy policy is "drill everywhere" 5) He is exceptionally militaristic, stating that the U.S. is "at war with Islamic fascists," he criticized even W for being too pacific 6) Against gay rights 7) His budget proposal creates a massive deficit, because it slashes revenues, boosts military spending, and has no concrete proposal to reduce costs Nope doesn't matter. Santorum is not from Harvard. We don't need two candidates from Harvard. Wow that was a stupid article.
