People who are ready and equipped for the national spotlight, but also understand America, not just their besotted base, know intuitively what things crossing their mind should not be uttered.

Rick Santorum saying reading John F. Kennedy’s speech on religion made him want to “throw up” was again criticized today by Rush Limbaugh, following criticism by Newt Gingrich.

But the reason Santorum wants the line back is because it’s forever bracketed him as what he is: an extremist religious conservative who disrespects the secular traditions of presidential power and someone Americans cannot trust to keep those traditions in place.
