Palin Vs. Santorum, Round 3: Rick Santorum Throws In The Towel

If you want to see the definition of someone speaking with their tail between their legs look no further than former Republican Senator Rick Santorum‘s appearance with Greta van Susteren last night, just after getting his clock cleaned by Sarah Palin. Attempting to clarify his vague statement where he pondered the many reasons why Palin might be skipping the CPAC conference, Santorum simply admitted he didn’t know why Palin skipped it and stressed he was not in any way “knocking” Palin.

Santorum continued by complaining about the state of journalism today and how the reporter who originally reported on his interview didn’t call him for comment. In an attempt to ingratiate himself further with Palin, he claimed that he and his wife like Palin a lot and are even fans of her reality show Sarah Palin’s Alaska. And to prove he was not in any way belittling her family obligations, he exclaimed that he also has family responsibilities, that he changed three diapers that morning, and in fact has a bigger family than Palin. Uh-oh, is Santorum now calling out Palin and bragging about having a larger family?

While some of this controversy may have been overblown, one simple lesson for Republicans generally and especially any potential 2012 candidate for the Republican nomination is indisputable: do not ever even attempt to mess with the Mama Grizzly.
