Update: A quick Google search reveals that a whole slew of wingnut bloggers and sites fell for this one. Too funny!
LMAO. This is just funny I don’t care who you are. Santorum (ya, the one who is currently getting pounded in his race) holds a presser today along with Pete Hoekstra of Michigan to claim that WMDs had indeed been found in Iraq! Say what?
And guess what folks? The RAB kiddos fell for it. Hook. Line. Sinker:

Senator Rick Santorum and Representative Pete Hoekstra held a news conference today announcing a newly-declassified report that summarizes our discovery in Iraq of ~500 warheads full of chemical weapons.
That’s right, kiddies, you won’t have to hear “no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq” for very much longer.
What a bad week this is to be a Democratic candidate for the House or Senate. Those donkey campaign managers must be drinking coffee by the gallon and swallowing antacid tablets by the handful tonight. How do you suppose they’ll try to slither around this enormously inconvenient revelation? I’ll bet anyone $100 that no Ohio Dem will say “Oops. My bad. Bush was right.”
These were rusty ass leftover Gulf War munitions that weapons inspectors said would be found and also said had a shelf life of around 5 years. Real slow here…1991 plus 5 equals 1996. by 2002, this stuff was U-S-E-L-E-S-S.
Here is Santorum getting punked on Fox News by Alan Colmes (ht Think Progress):
Now, my only question is: Will the RAB blogger comment to his post and say “Oops. My bad. Santorum is an idiot.”? Betcha $100 he don’t!
This is almost as funny as this. Almost.
