Joe Admits Santorum's Been Smart

I'm so sick of hearing the media talking about Rick Santorum like he's a crazy man for the things he's been saying. These are the things that he needs to say to separate the core conservative voter from the unsatisfying banality of Mitt Romney, and it's worked according to plan. Joe Scarborough, who has spent endless hours skewering Santorum, has finally admitted it.

I don't think him saying all these things is going to hurt him in the primary, I want to win general elections.

You can't worry about winning the general election until you win the nomination, something that Mitt Romney's handlers should have considered before they screwed up his bid by skating so close to the center.
