Quote of the Day

"Folks, you've got energy here. They're going to bother you. They bother you, because you are a very key and strategic resource for this country."

Rick Santorum, warning North Dakota citizens that their state faces an imminent threat of attack from Iran.

Santorum's remarks are mind-bogglingly stupid on several counts. Santorum believes that Iran needs to attack North Dakota for oil. Iran has some of the richest oil fields in the world. Another matter is, Santorum believes Iran has the military power to wage a land war with the United States. The Iranian army had its hands full facing Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard in the 80s. Santorum believes the neoconservative gospel, without considering real world considerations.
