Rick Santorum throws in the towel


I was recently back in PA, when Rick Santorum, the former Senator from PA, threw in the towel.

And while it is no surprise- the lack of analysis is surprising to me. It is pretty clear that the man who got thrown out of office by Pennsylvanians decided to end his campaign before those same Pennsylvanians had the chance to go to the polls.

A calculated move to be sure- the thourough trouncing on the horizon would serve to undercut his wins to date.

I find it extremeley disturbing that a man who advocated the christian version of sharia law did as well as he did during the campaign.  But being back in PA I was reminded of the old line from the writer Edward Abbey- “Never trust a town with more churches then bars”

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
