So, after a dozen posts here yesterday on the Santorum ad car, not one post on how it did?

C'mon what happened?

This picture was on my morning paper, but

doesn't appear to be Santorum's electroral chances car.

"How Mitt Romney's Firm Tried And Failed To Build A Paper Empire"

From NPR's Zoe Chace

http://wamu.org/programs/morning_edition/12/02/22/how_mitt_romneys_firm_tried_and_failed_to_build_a_paper_empire

"The story of how Bain Capital tried — and failed — to build a paper empire starts with an ordinary legal pad. Yellow-lined paper, wide margins. The most innocuous looking thing in the world. The company that makes it has been around for more than 100 years. Its name is as boring as its product: American Pad and Paper. Ampad for short."

SNIP

"Jerry Rayburn, who worked on the factory floor at SCM, remembers the day when Bain took over.

"We knew something was going on when, toward the end of the day, we saw all the security guards starting to surround the plant," he says.

Then employees were told the company had been acquired by Ampad, and they had all been terminated. They were told they were welcome to re-apply for their own jobs."

Santorum's main problem? Aside from the fact that he's the extremist's extremist?

It is that he doesn't come across as Presidential.

He's a sniveling little tattletale. He's a holier-than-thou Sunday School teacher who you suspect is having an affair with the Church secretary. He's the guy in your 3rd grade class who raises his hand and says, "Mrs. Marshall? Joey acted up when you left the room and Susie passed a note to Lisa." No director would cast him as the US President in any movie, no matter how farcical.

(Of course his extreme views and abundance of ethic problems don't matter to the GOP, but my above theory will doom the guy)
