Rick Santorum's 'Obamaville': It's Mourning in America

Rick Santorum is out with a new campaign video, and it's deeply weird. The minute-long film imagines a small American town –"Obamaville" – two years from now if the president is reelected. Basically, the Soviets have taken over; religious freedom has been snuffed out, gas prices are driving people to suicide, paint is peeling off walls, and some woman keeps telling everyone to shush. As a pure expression of right-wing paranoia, it's admirably concise. It's also one more indication that Santorum's campaign has jumped the shark.
