Religious right unifies behind Santorum to beat Romney

It’s no great surprise that either Santorum or Gingrich would be the religious right favorite over Romney, and it’s also no surprise that they chose Santorum.  Gingrich is as much a family values poser as Romney, but in different ways.  Romney doesn’t believe in family values policies and Gingrich doesn’t believe in the family values lifestyle (read: multiple adulteries, divorces and marriages).  Santorum is a nut, to be sure, but that’s why he’s the perfect candidate for the religious right.  He’s more than hateful enough to win over the “values voter” crowd.  More from the NYT.
