Today on CBS's Face the Nation, Rick Santorum made his latest appeal to voters in Wisconsin, who go to the polls a week from Tuesday.

I don't know if you saw but yesterday I was bowling in Sheboygan. I threw three strikes in a row, that's a turkey. You can tell that you have someone here who relates to the voter in Wisconsin — like so many in Pennsylvania I grew up in the bowling lanes.

At the bowling alley itself Saturday, he took this line of reasoning a little bit further, describing himself as "someone who knows how to bowl, someone who grew up like you grew up, someone who believes what you believe and someone who will fight like you will fight to make sure this country is free and safe and prosperous.”

Santorum then noted that then-candidate Barack Obama threw gutter-balls, and look what a mess he made of things. In his stead, the man who bowled a turkey. Our savior!
