Santorum to UN?

Cornerites are touting the virtues of a Rick Santorum nomination to replace John Bolton at the U.N.

Andrew Sullivan thinks it’s a grotesque idea (shocker).

My two cents: Santorum is too good to get through the nomination process. Senate liberals would not be able to deal with his no-nonsense clear thinking about foreign affairs. That kind of thinking, you know, the kind that boldy and yes, sometimes undiplomatically, calls evil by its name, is considered too combative and too in your face by some of the liberal gatekeepers in the committee that Santorum would have to get out of.

Santorum sees the playing field clearly and did not hesitate in his campaign to warn of a “gathering storm” that Americans must understand and address. His opponent, Senator-elect Bob Casey. Jr. repeatedly said Santorum was just trying to “scare voters.” I fear that this nonchalant attitude infects many of the Senate’s liberals and would make it hard for Santorum to win Senate confirmation.

It would certainly be a fight worth having though.
