Santorum: Politico article ‘is garbage’

Posted by joshpainter on February 10, 2011

After Politico published one of its typically deceptive hit pieces, this one written by Andy Barr alleging that Rick Santorum had criticized Sarah Palin’s decision to skip CPAC, Santorum called BS via Twitter:

This article is garbage.All I said was- she is VERY busy, PERIOD. Reporter trying to create something out of nothing http://politi.co/gJ4ARo

Here’s the first paragraph of Barr’s article:

Rick Santorum knocked Sarah Palin’s decision to skip CPAC, saying on Tuesday that she must have “business opportunities” that are keeping her from the annual conservative conference that is a showcase for potential presidential contenders

And here’s the actual exchange between Santorum and S.E. Cupp:


Pollutico never misses an opportunity to use lies and distortions to paint Gov. Palin in a negative hue. In this case, Barr and his editors took a mostly uncritical observation by Santorum and tried to make it appear that the former Senator from Pennsylvania was bashing Gov. Palin. The article also draws on one of the constant memes promoted on left wing blogs that Sarah Palin is some kind of money-crazed fiend, simply because she gets paid well for her speaking appearances. So does Bill Clinton.

We had always considered Barr to be one of the lesser evils on Politico’s staff, but with his latest slanted piece, he proves that he’s no better than the rest of the biased website’s resident leftists. The left wing, anti-Palin agenda is there for all to see, and it’s the main engine that drives the corrupt Politico.

Don’t get us wrong; we’re no Santorum fans. He supported liberal Arlen Specter over conservative Pat Toomey in 2004, explaining that Snarlin’ Arlen is “with us on the votes that matter.” That really worked out well, didn’t it? And Santorum has subtly and not so subtly dissed Gov. Palin before. He got in his little sexist dig in his remarks to Cupp, but that’s almost par for the course for Santorum, whose loose lips show what a loose cannon he is. But the real outrage here is the way Politico always puts a negative spin on any story it writes about Gov. Palin. And if it can brew a tempest in a teapot by pitting Republicans against each other, that’s just considered bonus points at the leftist website.
