And the gloves are off!! The political infighting begins.

    Santorum has already released his first video against another republican candidate:

    This is a sharp attack on Huntsman's first campaign video:

    Knowing that this is typical for any party's primary season do you think that candidates like Santorum are going to be asked to "tone it down" by the RNC? Is this kind of a divide in the right a good idea for any candidate at this time considering that a split would surely set them up for having a right leaning third independent candidate? If Santorum pits the socially conservative rightwingers against Huntsman (or Romney) and Huntsman (or Romney) wins the nod isn't that exactly what will happen? Should Santorum win the nod, and I think that is far fetched, I can see where a more social moderate like Ron Paul would run third party against him. So is it wise for them to be dividing so much at this point?

    These ads from Santorum don't surprise me at all. When you have nothing else to offer it's the only route.

    Yet another act of desperation from the unelectable Rick Santorum. Ironic that the two he takes aim at probably are two of the best examples of "family values" in the race.
