Santorum clearly has the mental faculties to lead the United States.

I'm sure he meant "anti-war government niggard" :3

I also find it more than slightly disturbing that he used 'anti-war' as an insult :o

Exactly my thought 5 seconds ago after rewatching it again.

Congratulations, Mr. Romney

Also, I don't think he was actually going to say 'n-----'. But I suspect the media vultures will tear this apart in no time and it won't really matter. This is pretty much the last nail in his coffin, methinks.

I was a little sceptical at first, but can't really think what else he might have been about to say.

Under specific connotations and contexts it can be a legitimate insult without being enormously stupid.

This is not those situations.

For some reason, I get this mental image of Santorum in the Bruce Campbell scene from Army of Darkness...

"ANTIWAR....GOVERNMENT....NIGwphghgh"

I don't hear it. I mean, I can't think of anything else he would have been trying to say but to me it sounds like he just fumbles in a way that sounds like 'nigga.' The big thing for me is that after the sharp break he actually just goes ahead and gives the last syllable of the word anyway.

I'm interested to here Santorum's response (first time I've ever said that!). Of course, no matter what was actually going on there's pretty much no chance for him now.

Are we living in the same country? He may have just blown his chances with tons of moderates, but don't fool yourself into thinking that there isn't a demographic out there that is totally unphased by almost accidentally dropping the Nig-bomb.

Now, if this was The Newt, he would spin it into the liberal illuminati trying to defame him by twisting his innocent words. I don't think Santorum can pull that off.

I'm honestly willing to give the guy the benefit of the doubt, and assume that was either a totally unwitting slip of the tongue (maybe somebody in the crowd called Obama a nigger a minute earlier and it was stuck in his head, as words love to do) and that he really was trying to say something else and realized it halfway though the word (although it really sounds like he just sputtered into another sentence).

But unfortunately for Rick, none of that matters.  Fare thee well, my noble crusader, your journey has reached its end.

At least as far as any significant number of voters are going to notice.  There's certainly still a home for him in certain quarters of American conservatism, who will probably love that hearing that clip and will very politely never say so.  They're probably almost identical to the circles Santorum was already popular with anyway.
