Last weekend, Louisianans took their turn at the ballot box, overwhelmingly choosing Rick Santorum – the candidate who has been most shamelessly pushing the hot buttons of religion in the service of his electoral ambitions. Santorum racked up 41,556 more votes than Mitt Romney, giving him one of his largest margins of victory yet this cycle.  Dr. G.
