I’ve gotten pretty tired of gross Santorum jokes. But it’s very hard to ignore it when the man pulls stunts like creating a Conservatives Unite Moneybomb. Is his staff totally unaware of the concept of “acronyms”? Or are they actually calculating that any attention is good — or specifically, any attention that pits Santorum against the hated, sneering, liberal elite?

I’m strongly tempted to ignore this, except I fear that if it doesn’t produce the desired response, he’s going to keep provoking us with new groups like Americans Supporting Santorum.
