Berry Craig: Romney is hardly the only chest-thumping Republican who seems to have never met a war he didn’t like so long as others did the actual fighting.

Crow and Humble Pie

Berry Craig: Not until after the polls are closed on November 6 and the TV news networks declare my candidates the winner will I say, “when they lose.”

Berry Craig: The folks at Fox aren’t real newshounds. They’re rabble-rousing hacks in the tradition of the country’s old-time partisan press.

Berry Craig: Santorum didn’t talk about the “equality of man” at the GOP-friendly Conservative Political Action Conference. Neither did Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Peter Brimelow or Robert Vandervoort.

“I believe in the American worker,” says Rick Santorum, the new anti-Romney in the food fight for the GOP presidential nomination. A hero of social conservatives, Santorum claims he’s a blue collar sort of guy, too. The ex-senator and congressman from Pennsylvania promises he can make factories boom again.
