Rick Santorum said a curse word!! Of course, the NYT did not actually print said curse word in Jeff Zeleny’s write-up of Santorum’s comments, telling readers instead that the candidate had used “an expletive” in his comments to the reporter:
“What speech did you listen to?” Mr. Santorum told The New York Times, speaking in a terse and agitated tone. “I said he was the worst Republican to run on the issue of Obamacare. That’s what I was talking about.”
Mr. Santorum, as he signed autographs along a rope line, continued to raise his voice and suggested the media had been “distorting my words.” He used an expletive to make his point, saying again that it was Mr. Romney’s health care record – not his positions in general – that make him the “worst Republican” to run against Mr. Obama.
“On the issue of health care, yes, that’s what I was talking about,” Mr. Santorum later told reporters. “Obamacare, as you heard me say.”
