The Greatest Political Ad EVER

In an age when wrestlers have become politicians... was inevitable that politicians would start turning into wrestlers.

Interestingly enough, a young lawyer named Rick Santorum used to work for Vince McMahon. I wonder if he got some help from his old boss to set up this commercial?

Many years ago, Japanese wrestling legend Antonio Inoki made a rare appearance on an American TV show. Announcer Tony Schiavone told commentator Bobby Heenan that Inoki was an elected member of Japan's upper house of parliament, the equivalent of the U.S. Senate. Heenan said something like, "So this is like watching Ted Kennedy getting in the ring and wrestling?"

How about Rick Santorum vs. Ted Kennedy...IN A 15 FOOT HIGH STEEL CAGE? I'd like to see that!

That is Rick's best ad so far.
He's also ingratiated himself to Don Imus whose wife has made a cause celebre of a potential link between autism in children to poorly composed immunization shots.
