Drudge Report Brings Down The Hammer On Santorum Over "Satan" Comments

• By: Noah Rothman
 

Matt Drudge’s popular right-leaning news aggregator “Drudge Report” received some criticism for its overt posting of multiple anti-Gingrich stories in January. Some say Drudge’s motives were subject to scrutiny for his persona ties to Mitt Romney’s campaign manager Matt Rhoades. Regardless of Drudge’s motives, his highly-trafficked site likely aided in Gingrich’s second collapse in the polls. Today, Drudge is at it again—this time the target is Rick Santorum and controversial comments he made about Satan and his designs on America.

Drudge aside, Santorum’s comments are… interesting. “Satan has his sights on the United States of America,” said Santorum in 2008. “Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition.”

Drudge also notes that Santorum made these controversial comments when he told an audience at Ave Maria University in Florida “If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age?” Santorum answered his own question: “he attacks all of us and he attacks all of our institutions.”
