Please do not reelect this man to the Senate:
Embattled U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said America has avoided a second terrorist attack for five years because the â€œEye of Mordorâ€ has been drawn to Iraq instead.
Santorum used the analogy from one of his favorite books, J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1950s fantasy classic â€œLord of the Rings,â€ to put an increasingly unpopular war in Iraq into terms any school kid could easily understand.
â€œAs the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,â€ Santorum said, describing the tool the evil Lord Sauron used in search of the magical ring that would consolidate his power over Middle-earth.
â€œIt’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S.,â€ Santorum continued. â€œYou know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.â€
