Santorum fights to be heard at a raucous Tacoma rally







TACOMA -- It was fight night for Rick Santorum in the City of Destiny.

The former Pennsylvania senator was cheered by the largest public outdoor rally in Western Washington that a Republican White House hopeful has seen in years. But Santorum fought to make himself heard over chants from protesters.

The candidate tried to link together President Obama and the demonstrators, declaring: "They're fundamentally trying to remake our country into a country that our Founders wouldn't recognize."

The Santorum rally, at the Washington State History Museum, was the state's the most raucous political event since conservative talk radio activists provided a loud bump in the 1994 Hillary Clinton health care caravan.

Favorite line of the article: Not the most humorous of candidates, Santorum went straight at the hecklers rather than humoring and poking them.

That will make him look shakable, VERY non-presidential..

4. He's still in Washington?

Yes, I figured he wanted to be there Monday, when equal marriage was signed into law, but I'm frankly surprised that he hung around another day. He really wants to win that WA caucus the Saturday before Super Tuesday. I guess he figures he's got Michigan in the bag.
