So, this weekend, Rick Santorum launched a fundraising campaign called “Conservatives Unite Moneybomb.” Yes, the man whose name has become shorthand for icky sex fluids launched a fundraising campaign with the acronym “CUM.” It seems like the Republican presidential race for 2012 has teetered far over the edge of “ludicrous” and into “We can’t tell if this is The Onion or not anymore” territory.
Which leads me to my question for you today. What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve seen a politician do in your lifetime? I don’t mean the “serious” ridiculous. I mean the hilarious, the kind that might have been SNL-skit content except that it really happened by a candidate who took themselves seriously for political office. Give me your best political snafus in the comments.
