Adventures in Language With Rick Santorum

WESTERVILLE, OH - MARCH 05:  Republican presidential candidate and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) speaks during a campaign rally at an American Legion on March 5, 2012 in Westerville, Ohio. Ohio voters go to the polls tomorrow during their primary, as the Republican Party continues the process of deciding who their general election candidate will be against President Barack Obama in November.

At a campaign stop at the American Legion in Westerville, Ohio, today, Rick Santorum took a moment to talk linguistics. As the Huffington Post reports:

"This election is about big things. It is about whether [sic] the flame that our founders lit in writing that document in 1776 in the face of impossible odds. Impossible odds. We use that term impossible as if it doesn't really mean impossible, just hard.Well that day it was impossible."

Fail.
