...(B)y far the biggest loser of the 2006 midterms was NRO's Kathryn Jean Lopez, who made an idiot spectacle of herself with her birdbrained Rick Santorum cheerleading, the nadir reached when she posted that a Republican source had told her that Ed Rendell's internals indicated that Santorum was down on only four points. At this point a merciful intervention should have been staged, like the white coats arriving at the door to escort Blanche Dubois to that nice quite place on the hill where she can be helped. Why would Rendell or his staff leak internal polls to a Republican source who could then feed the numbers to K'Lo? It made no sense. Or rather it made as much sense as all of her other attempts to pluck silver linings off of the clouds floating in her head. Her political crushes--for Santorum and especially for Mitt Romney--have passed the cute Sandra Dee stage into a nattering form of erotomania. Her idol dethroned, she has floated the trial balloon--in fun? in earnest? who can tell with her?--that Santorum would be a nifty choice for Secretary of Defense once Rumsfeld sees the writing on the wall that reads LEAVE, GO, YOU'VE CAUSED ENOUGH DAMAGE, TAKE THE HINT, FOR GOD'S SAKE GO. That's not as nutsy crazy as the reefer madness of Santorum on the Supreme Court, but it still gives cause for concern. It's time to roll her up in a carpet and stick her into the back of a van until her overheated if underutilized brain cools down. Read entire article...

The mind reels at so much out-and-out insanity.
