Start with Rick Santorum, who, according to Public Policy Polling, is the clear current favorite among voters, running 15 points ahead of Mr. Romney. Anyone with an Internet connection is aware that Mr. Santorum is best known for 2003 remarks about homosexuality, incest, and bestiality. But his strangeness runs deeper than that.
For example, last year Mr. Santorum made a point of defending
the medieval Crusades against the “American left who hates
Christendom.” Historical issues aside (hey, what are a few
massacres of infidels and Jews among friends?), what was this doing
in a 21st-century campaign?

A Washington Post report on the fabulous whooping cranes proffers a helpful suggestion as to how Mr. and Mrs. Barack Obama, once liberated from the White House glitz, can integrate themselves back into the American mainstream—don bird suits!
The birds are reared by conservationists in bird suits that conceal their human features. The birds become conditioned to follow the suited handlers.
On the migratory route, the cranes follow a small plane flown by
a pilot in a bird costume. The cranes think the small glider-like
ultralight plane is another bird. The flock flies 25 to 50 miles a
day. Once the route is flown, the birds can make the return flight
on their own.

Arty doings in downtown Chelsea, Michigan, involving such famous down-and-outs as the Buddha, Jesus of Nazareth, and even Kelly Clarkson:
Holy Faith Church, 6299 Ann Arbor-Saline Road in Saline, is hosting “Letters Home,” an art installation about homelessness in America, through Friday.
The exhibit is the creation of area artist Susan Clinthorne and her sister, Sally Thielen, who together have been photographing and getting to know their homeless subjects in such places as Ann Arbor, Flint, Chicago, New York and along the West Coast. The two artists show the installation for free, making no money from the project.
The purpose of “Letters Home” is to raise awareness of the
problem of homelessness and to break down an us-versus-them
distinction for the viewer. It features life-sized, cut-out,
black-and-white-photo portraits, as well as framed cardboard signs,
a shopping cart, a cardboard “shelter” and a light box with a list
of famous people who have been homeless—from entertainers like
Kelly Clarkson and Halle Berry to religious figures like the Buddha
and Jesus of Nazareth.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
