Or: It Ain’t Easy Being Cheesy.

Picture of Sliced American Cheese of Some Sort
Everyone Wants to Be the Big Cheese

 

Fellow CT Contributor, Christopher Levi, observes a package of flat yellow slices which labels itself as “pasteurized process cheese food” and Mr. Levi remains unconvinced.  “If you have to call it food, it probably isn’t”, he says. Politicians sometimes say “Have no doubt, I am sincere.” Applying the Levi Principal, we could say that if he has to say he’s sincere, he probably isn’t.

Former Senator Rick Santorum is coming through Iowa Tuesday on a six-city “Thank You” Tour to thank voters for his narrow caucus win over Governor Mitt Romney in January. If you are from Iowa, you remember all the things Santorum said about Romney last year:

He’s questionably pro-life, one of the most liberal guys we have ever had, and he doesn’t hold our values. You know: all the standard fare. Never mind that Santorum had endorsed Romney in 2008, calling him a clear conservative who shares our values.Find both his 2008 endorsement and a sampling of anti-Romney rants in one video (thankfully for Santorum, taken at different times):

After he dropped out this time around, and in violation of a pledge he made before God not to support anybody who didn’t sign the Family Leader pledge (which Romney didn’t), Santorum re-endorsed Romney, without blinking or apologizing.

And recently he told a gathering of social-conservative voters that Governor Mitt Romney was “solid” on social issues. “I’ve talked to Governor Romney,” said Santorum, “and I have no doubt, and I mean this in all sincerity, I have no doubt he understands the centrality of family.”

And I believe him, I sincerely do.  Oh! And have a processed cheese food sandwich, on me.
