From THINK PROGRESS:
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press [Sunday] morning, former Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum offered two stunningly maximalist positions on abortion — abortion should be flatly banned even in cases of rape or incest, and doctors who perform abortions should face criminal charges:
QUESTION: Do you believe that there should be any legal exceptions for rape or incest when it comes to abortion?
SANTORUM: I believe that life begins at conception, and that that life should be guaranteed under the Constitution. That is a person.
QUESTION: So even in the case of rape or incest, that would be taking a life?
SANTORUM: That would be taking a life, and I believe that any doctor that performs an abortion, I would advocate that any doctor that performs an abortion, should be criminally charged for doing so.

From Business Week (January 30):
So much for bipartisanship…10 days into the President’s term and it’s over. Only the tiniest signs of inter-party mixing and mingling exist.
We’re not talking the stimulus bill here. We’re talking serious stuff: the President’s Super Bowl party.
After two days of questioning, the press office just released a list of the elected officials who will be watching the big game with Obama in the White House. The final score? Donkeys: 11. Elephants: 3. Seven of the guests hail from either Arizona or Pennsylvania, though apparently neither presidential rival John McCain or John Kyl, Arizona’s two Republican Senators, will be there. Pennsylvania will be better represented: both Democrat Bob Casey and Republican Arlen Specter will be in the house.

Hey kids! I thought we would take some of the best quotes from the Democratic National Convention and have some fun with them. First up, Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania:
The people of Pennsylvania can’t afford four more years of Bush-Cheney economics, and you know what — with John McCain, that’s exactly what we’d get. John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush over 90 percent of the time. That’s not a maverick. That’s a sidekick.
