Is this guy for real?

Maybe I’m reading this wrong, but I think that Sen. Santorum is comparing the war in Iraq, to the hobbits trying to get into Mordor, I think. He’s babbling about the Eye of Sauron being drawn to Iraq, and not the US.


“As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum said, describing the tool the evil Lord Sauron used in search of the magical ring that would consolidate his power over Middle-earth.

“It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S.,” Santorum continued. “You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”

So does this mean that we’ve got troops in Iraq to distract Sauron? Am I the only one who’s really not worried about where Sauron is looking right now? I understand being a fan of LOTR, but I don’t quite think that’s what’s going on right now. And I think we’re being cautious, and exceptionally lucky, has more to do with the lack of recent terrorist attacks than anything we’re doing in Iraq
