Rick Santorum declared this weekend that President Obama’s call for more Americans to have a college education made him a “snob”, then spent the following days both backing up his position and increasing his rhetoric.
This sparked a lot of reaction from anchors, pundits, other politicians and even a rebuttal from the President himself.
But as well as taking on a sitting Democratic president, Santorum was also taking on a dead one, saying JFK’s 1960s comments about religion in the public sphere made him “throw up.”
With a day before primaries in Michigan and Arizona, Santorum was about to find out the hard way: you don’t mess with a dead Kennedy.
