Rick Santorum: Stupid or evil? It can be both.

The lines blur, don’t they.  Or those are two lines that at some part intersect?

Santorum was a good-time jock in college.  His wife dated an abortion provider.  Then at some point they found God and become holy rollers (and took their dead baby on a road trip).

One of Santorum’s clients from his time as a lobbyist was the then-WWF.
Not the the World Wildlife Federation but the World Wrestling Federation, now the WWE (after losing the WWF trademark).  His particular focus was getting wrestling regulated as entertainment and not as a sport, freeing them from the burdensome regulations such as government oversight, steroid bans, and rules disallowing steel chairs from out of nowhere.
In wrestling there are good guys (heroes) and villains (heels).  Both are caricatures.  At the most primitive level, Santorum is playing the heel.
