The Left Is In Love With The Proxy Baptism Thing, Cracks In The Santorum Armor

My little web-crawling spiders today that look for the words “Romney” and “Mormon” came up exclusively and voluminously with stories on Weisenthal’s comments on the Mormon ordinances.  I’ll only link a couple of stories, because it is old, it is tired and it is pointless.  I have to say it is perhaps the most unique area of oppo research ever.

It is absolutely fascinating to me that this story is leaping around the left like a hot potato and no one, I mean NO ONE, on the right is going near it.  An evangelical friend of mine said to me the other day, “Romney has as much to do with Weisenthal’s parents posthumous baptism as Santorum does with the pedophile priest scandals in Roman Catholic church.”  Very true, but apparently, to the left, posthumous baptism is weirder and more dangerous than pedophilia.

The right seems to have learned that Mormon attacks will backfire.  The MSM is aiding them in their silence because they don’t want Romney as the nominee either.  So, it is left to the British press to point out what is going on:

Evangelicals spread the gospel of Rick Santorum in blue-collar Michigan

But do they know what they have gotten themselves into?  The Sanotrum organization remains very weak.  Santorum carries some pretty heavy baggage.  Santorum is even sounding a bit “gingrichess.”  Some of his supporters are getting silly.  But there are two stories that need to be covered in detail here.

One – Sanotrum voted for funding the NEA:

When social conservatives were fighting to stop funding the National Endowment for the Arts in the 1990s, Rick Santorum was in Congress voting to preserve taxpayer funding — pitting him against many of the high-profile culture warriors with whom he is now most identified.

NEA funding became a hot-button issue during the first President Bush’s term and on into the Clinton years, featuring prominently in that decade’s spending battles, as both fiscal and social conservatives argued against taxpayers subsidizing such art as the infamous “Piss Christ” photograph.

Do we remember that photograph?  Here is how Wikipedia describes it:
