This just in from Rick Santorum's 'campaign' for the Republican nomination for president:
[Santorum] would address the deficit not by increasing taxes but by cutting spending, citing federal education spending, the State Department and food stamps among his primary targets.
"Is there a hunger problem if the poorest people in America are the most obese?" he said.
Liss replies: This brilliant rhetorical observation, in addition to highlighting Santorum's compassionate side, underlines how much attention he was paying while serving as a senator in the US Congress, whence comes the answer to his nifty question.
