Support our troops the GOP way!

Rick "Spreading" Santorum isn't likely to remain in the Senate after this year's election. Which is a good thing for his state, not to mention the country. On the other hand, Santorum is a paragon of patriotism. Or at least patridiotism. At a recent fundraiser, he decided to show that he's all about the right stuff:

"And yet we have brave men and women who are willing to step forward because they know what's at stake. They're willing to sacrifice their lives for this great country. What I'm asking all of you tonight is not to put on a uniform. Put on a bumper sticker. Is it that much to ask? Is it that much to ask to step up and serve your country?"

There's even a punchline. Santorum wasn't even talking about a 'Support Our Troops' bumper sticker. He was talking about serving your country with a 'Rick Santorum for Senate' bumper sticker.
