Karen Santorum: Husband's presidential run is 'God's will':
Rick Santorum's wife granted a rare interview Thursday, telling conservative talk show host Glenn Beck that she initially had been against her husband running for president but finally concluded it was "God's will." ... But she said she prayed on the matter, and finally changed her mind after the passage of the 2010 health care overhaul.

"I did always feel in my heart that God had big plans for Rick. Eventually it was there, tugging at my heart," she said. "When Obamacare passed, that was it. That put the fire in my belly."
A. If I am wrong and an anthropomorphic god exists, and his will is that Rick Santorum be president, then I hate god.

B. Obviously I am a heathen atheist monster, but I did attend church at least once a week and usually more for the first 18 years of my life, followed by four years at a Catholic university, and getting angry about extending healthcare to people does not resonate with either the Protestant or Catholic doctrine to which I was exposed in exacting detail. I've actually read the Bible, and that Jesus fella was pretty insistent on caring for the sick and the poor. HE COULDN'T SHUT UP ABOUT THAT JUNK! He was such a blabbermouth about the sick the poor the sick the poor the sick the poor that he never even had any time to talk about abortion or same-sex marriage!

I guess what I'm saying is that maybe that fire in Karen Santorum's belly was just a bad case of indigestion! Which, in fairness, is very easy to mistake for a divine exhortation to the presidency.
