Moderate Until Re-election (MUR)

Apparently Rick Santorum is trying to become more moderate as his re-election comes up. Instead of attacking the decision by Judge John E. Jones III, Santorum is no longer affiliating himself with the Thomas More Law Center, a Christian-rights group that had defended the Dover School District's decision. Although Santorum had at one time praised the Dover School Board for their decision, now it seems he is backing away from that position, at least until the election is over. Of course Santorum is saying his position hasn’t changed and that he favored the freedom for teachers to teach criticisms of evolution, but not force them to teach Intelligent Design. Either way, I expect Santorum to spontaneously self-combust one of these days as he tries to publicly say something moderate.
