The Silly Season is Here

Eric Heyl of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review offers proof that the silly season has truly arrived with this odd and amusing story. Apparently, a couple in Pennsylvania has put up a web site selling baby clothes with anti-Santorum sayings on them like a bib that reads, "I'd beat Rick Santorum in a battle of wits." They also offer some other, shall we say, less savory quips.

Anyway, upon being alerted to the web site the Santorum campaign responded sarcastically that it is "deeply unfortunate Casey is encouraging babies to be negative campaigners, but it's not a surprise, given the negative campaigns he is known for." Casey's camp, apparently the only party inolved without a sense of humor, denied any connection to the web site and accused the Santorum campaign of "making false attacks."
