Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

If you go to Rick Santorum's official website, you might find a picture of 4chan founder Christopher Pool (a.k.a Moot) sandwiched in between two photographs of the former Republican presidential candidate. First spotted by a Redditor, the image was soon confirmed as authentic by a spokesperson for the web design firm National Builder, who revealed that the site was designed by a contractor at the political consulting firm Brabender Cox. ... could this have been a clever web designer's intentional ploy to make the website go "viral"?

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has announced he will suspend his campaign, effectively dropping out of the race and conceding the Republican nomination to frontrunner Mitt Romney.

Santorum cited his daughter Bella's health as his reason for reconsidering his presidential bid. She suffers from a rare genetic condition, and has been hospitalized twice during the campaign.

"We made a decision over the weekend that, while this presidential race for us is over — for me — and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting," Santorum said in a statement.

Santorum won primaries in 11 states, but after defeats last week in Wisconsin, Maryland and DC, he would have had to take over three-fourths of the remaining delegates to win the nomination.

Lots of discussion this morning about whether or not Santorum caught himself starting to say the N-word while describing Barack Obama during a recent speech in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Footage from the event shows Santorum characterizing candidate Obama as "the anti-war government nig-" before stopping himself with a filled pause and abruptly heading in a different direction.

There are several alternate theories out there which suggest Santorum was trying to say something (relatively) innocuous, and merely stumbled in an unfortunate place. One such theory claims Santorum was actually calling Obama a "governmentnik." While plausible, "governmentnik" isn't really something someone's ever called anyone.

This wouldn't be Santorum's first brush with racial remarks. He previously came under fire for allegedly singling out black people as welfare recipients. He later claimed he stumbled on a word, which he couldn't recall, but definitely wasn't "black."

At a police gun range in Louisiana today, Rick Santorum was showing off his shooting skills with a Colt M1911 when an AP cameraman, as well as several other reporters, overheard a woman in attendance advising the GOP presidential candidate to improve his aim by "pretend[ing] it's Obama." (Can be heard at around 0:36 in the video above.)

Asked later if he heard the remark, Santorum said he did not. "It's a very terrible and horrible remark and I'm glad I didn't hear it," he told AP. A Secret Service spokesman said the woman's identity and intent were being investigated.

A pair of protesting dudes interrupted Rick Santorum's speech at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois, yesterday evening with a mic check and a brief lip-lock before being escorted out to bewildering chants of "USA! USA! USA!" (skip to 3:37).

Asked about the PDA-bomb, Timothy Tross and Ben Clifford refused to comment on their sexual orientation. "I don’t think the message should be about what my sexuality is," Tross told Palatine Patch. "It’s the message that he’s saying about sexuality that matters."

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum took some time off from making English a pre-condition for Puerto Rican statehood to enjoy some shirtless sun by the pool at a local resort.

Asked about the candid shot by Chicago-based radio personality Steve Cochran, Santorum apologized for what must not have been "a pretty sight."

Conveniently omitted from Cochran's interview: The fact that this photo was snapped by a passenger aboard an Atlantis all-gay cruise, which just happened to be docked nearby.
