Santorum has picked up some key endorsements in Iowa that helped Huckabee win the Iowa caucus in 08: Bob Vander Plaats, the head of the Family Leader, and Chuck Hurley, the president of the Iowa Family Policy Center. According to the latest Rasmussen poll, he has gone from 6% support to 10% in just six days. Now that the Republican party is due to pick another "not Romney" can Santorum win Iowa and use this momentum to earn significant support nationwide?

If Santorum ever got elected, I would be sure that it would be the end of the world.

Yeah, Republicans; Pick Santorum. You must be very out of touch if you think Santorum could win 51% of the nation.

God 75% of the nation finds this guy to be beyond silly, and this is who is "surging" for you idjits?

If the Republicans have a Presidential candidate Flavor of the Day, they do not a) deserve any office they seek, and b) should be prohibited from voting. Truly a party too incompetent to put up a person to oppose an incumbent they universally despise is metaphorically a train seconds before impact with the end of the tracks.

Default Nice try!

The nomination process may seem disorganized now but the choice in November will be clear to right wingers, right-leaning independents, and other voters who are fed up with the current state of the economy. As Romney would say: Nice try!

Ah, the next candidate to surge...get to the top...and then burst into flames.

What number are we on now?

Who is actually going to be left to run in the campaign if they use up all the candidates?

Rick Santorum as President? What a frightening prospect.

He's the darling of the Evangelical right because he spends all his time kissing their azz for money.

If you think new laws designed to enforce Christian behavior on everyone in this country is a good idea, go ahead and support that fraud.

As for me, I'd vote for the devil first.

No, highly unlikely at best.
