Drudge links to Examiner hit piece on Santorum; address published

As if we needed more evidence that Matt Drudge is in the tank for Romney, he links today to this outrageous hit piece on Santorum in the Examiner of all places:

http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/article/how-rick-santorum-got-2-million-virginia-estate/418636

The author, Steve Contorno, fills this piece with innuendo of wrongdoing when in reality Santorum bought his house in a perfectly aboveboard, responsible way. I’ve rarely seen a piece which so clearly and outrageously twists the facts.  I hope this is not Romney’s work because it is so reminiscent of something the Obama gang would put out.

Perhaps the most unconscionable part of this piece of trash is that Contorno publishes the Santorums’ home address. Unbelievable.

By the way, $2m for a house in Great Falls is a very ordinary price. It is a fairly plain, colonial style house, with room for seven, count’em, seven kids. Unlike some of the many literally palatial homes seen in the DC burbs. Apparently if you start in the middle class and make something of yourself, that’s bad.
