RICK SANTORUM's recent comments calling into question the president's religious convictions as phony, pronouncing that education should be out of the realm of all government, calling birth control an excuse for lascivious activity and deeming amniocentesis as a means to identify disabled children so we can cull them from the population show what we here have always known: Santorum is a one-trick pony who wants to be Preacher-in-Chief. Even Republicans are distraught at this loose cannon and that he may win this thing.

When the U.S. Senate begins debate this month on a bill banning a controversial late-term abortion procedure, Sen. Rick Santorum (R., Pa.) will passionately argue for its passage, as he did last year. Only his family and close friends know how personal the issue has become for him in the intervening months. In the fall, Santorum, the leading proponent of barring the procedure - termed "partial-birth abortion" by its foes - was within hours of having to decide whether to use an abortion to save the life of his wife, Karen Garver Santorum, who was in her fifth month of pregnancy.

WASHINGTON - The ill daughter of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been taken to the hospital. Santorum's campaign said Friday that 3-year-old Bella had been returned to the hospital. She has the rare genetic condition Trisomy 18 and was hospitalized earlier this year with pneumonia, prompting Santorum to take a campaign break before the Florida primary. The campaign did not identify the hospital or say why her parents took Bella there. Spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a written statement, "The family requests prayers and privacy as Bella works her way to recovery.

AFTER SEEING his recent lively TV ads, Sen. Rick Santorum, frequently derided by his political opponents as a frothing pit bull of right-wing nuttery, is starting to look calm and reasonable and, dare we say it, electable. We're hoping that Mr. Casey's sliding poll numbers might prompt our governor, whose own re-election race seems virtually over against the fumbling Lynn Swann, to take time off from praising Santorum and lend his struggling teammate a real hand. Rumor has it that Big Ed has promised to raise big money (with an assist from Big Bill Clinton later in the fall)

IF THERE'S any justice in the world, Trent Lott may soon have a new seat mate in the back bench of the U.S. Senate: Pennsylvania's own Rick Santorum. The junior senator has earned the wrath of moderate Republicans and Democrats for comments comparing homosexuality to incest, bigamy, polygamy and adultery made during an interview with the Associated Press. When he complained about the news report being "misleading," the AP released transcripts of the interview in which Santorum said "I have a problem with homosexual acts.

A headline Friday on the "Philly Pharma" blog incorrectly identified which hospitals in the Thomas Jefferson University system made billing errors resulting in overpayments by Medicare. The errors were made by Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience. A story Friday on the presidential primary race in Pennsylvania wrongly described the stand of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network in Rick Santorum's 2006 Senate campaign. While many members of the group supported Santorum, the organization took no official stance.

IN 1812, THE WILY governor of Massachusetts, Elbridge Gerry, masterminded skewing the borders for his state's legislative seats in such a way as to maximize the strength of his allies. A local wag noticed that the shape of one of the oddly-shaped districts resembled a salamander. That shape was combined with the name of the plan's creator and the word "gerrymander" was born. Last week, our state was the birthplace of a new creature - the "Santorumander. " Prompted by Pennsylvania's junior U.S. senator, Rick Santorum, the Republican-controlled General Assembly voted in favor of plans to redraw Pennsylvania's congressional boundaries in a bizarre, contorted manner whose only purpose was to enhance the strength of the Republican Party.

Pennsylvania's Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate calls himself Bob. Not Robert. And definitely not "junior," though he is one. Just Bob. But Sen. Rick Santorum's proliferating TV and radio campaign ads refer to the challenger as Bobby Casey Jr. If that makes Casey, 45, sound as if he's running for student council president, well, that may be the point. "Rick Santorum is trying to engage in name-calling and to belittle Bob," said Larry Smar, campaign manager for Casey, who is named after his father, two-term Pennsylvania Gov. Robert P. Casey, who died in 2000.

Quite a crowd of Republicans thought about, but did not enter, the race for the nomination to challenge Sen. Harris Wofford in the fall. Most intriguing was Teresa Heinz, widow of Sen. John Heinz, who held the seat until his death in a plane crash. Teresa Heinz deigned not to run, and heaped scorn on the process itself: "Today, political campaigns are the graveyard of real ideas and the birthplace of empty promises. " She may be right. But only the people who bother to run have any chance at all to change the situation.
