Jonathan Chait on Last Word: Santorum Is Running for President of Iran

By and

New York columnist Jonathan Chait appeared on The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell on Tuesday night to discuss the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two leading Republican presidential candidates, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. But mainly, Chait spoke about their weaknesses, saying that they're both bad, flawed nominees. Rick Santorum, because he's an absolutist on abortion. Because of that unyielding, old-guard view, Chait jokes that Santorum is running for president of Iran (which will be having an election in June 2013 to find Ahmadinejad's successor). Watch for more analysis of the GOP field.
