      Did Rick Santorum Almost Just Call Obama the "N-Word"?

      March 30, 2012

      This is presidential candidate Rick Santorum (holy shit does that look scary written down) delivering a speech in Janesville, Wisconsin a couple of days ago. And, as you can see in the above video, it seems like he might have been on the verge of calling Obama a "nigger".

      As unlikely as it seems that he was actually going to describe Barack as "the anti-war, government nigger", there also aren't that many other words beginning with "nig" that he might have been saying as an alternative. I guess he could have been calling him a niggler? Or niggardly? IDK.

      Santorum's rolling out the racist gaffes about once a quarter so far in 2012, after this slip of the tongue back in January. (He was actually saying "blah people", guys! Duhhh.)
