Eye of Mordor

Rick Santorum explains the security situation in Iraq and how it affects the safety of Americans, using lessons he learned reading (or watching) The Lord of the Rings.

“As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum said. “It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S. You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”

It’s the next logical step after Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars defense plan, right? Daily Gotham thinks it’s just crazy. More Santorum-Mordor musings are here.
