You're not going to Disneyland

Picture it. Pennsylvania. 2006. Senator Rick "frothy mixture" Santorum has just lost his re-election bid. He steps to the mic to give his "I'm a loser" speech and this is the picture of that brief and fecal moment.

Rick Santorum loses

Note: This picture originally ran in 2006 under the headline, "Jesus Doesn't Love Daddy Anymore" and several people took me to task for making fun of a little girl. I agree that it's a despicable deed, so let's do it again.

Because it certainly wasn't staged and taken to help daddy be better loved by people next time around. And the innocent little happens to be out front beside the podium which daddy is speaking at and she is dressed just like her dolly and that look of sincere sadness on her face.
The sadness is to use a child this way, she is more out in front crying with no tears than the father who is giving the speech.
Just another spontaneous Kodak moment.

I agree, it really does look like they put her out in front of the podium to cynically use her emotions for a photo-op. When was the last time a politicians family stood FORWARD of the politician on the stage?

Maybe she's crying because now man-on-dog loving Daddy is going to be home with Snookums the family poodle rather than cruising dog parks in DC.

"Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!! This means I have to cut back to only 2 ponies! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!"

I love the 'deer in headlights' look of the brother
glad them pukes got outta Pa.

There is every reason to have pity on this little girl ... imagine what a difficult time she will have finding her own mind, how bravely she will have to think for herself if she is to avoid becoming a hateful pseudo-Christian bigot just like the family members she is surrounded by.

Pray for her ... pray hard!

Wow- how much is wrong with this picture?

It always amazes me that people can use other people as political props and then get offended when other people react to them politically. The dude lost his job, and most people don't take their kids to work with them to watch them get fired.
