Li'l Ricky opens his mouth. Again.

"You know, Rudy, I can really, really help you in the fearmongering department. Can I work on your campaign, Rudy? Huh? Can I?"

Rick Santorum is now playing Wingnut Nostradamus, predicting that there will be more terrorist attacks on America:

Appearing on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, Santorum also hyped the necessity of "confronting Iran in the Middle East," and predicted that Giuliani, Romney and Fred Thompson would be the three surviving Republican candidates who would go head to head in the race for the nomination....

"Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American public’s going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like we’re seeing unfold in the UK. But I think the American public’s going to have a very different view," said the former senator from Pennsylvania.

Is Santorum expressing foreknowledge of some coming atrocity or is he merely using a tactic familiar to the leadership of his party - exploiting the fear of terror for the purposes of political rhetoric?

Now now. Let's give Li'l Ricky the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps this is all part of his dopey little think-tank project about "America's Enemies." Maybe scoring political points has nothing to do with it.

Or maybe he's stumbled onto super-special information during on-site research for his upcoming documentary about radical Islam. Yup, now that Li'l Ricky is armed with the hard facts about the terrorists that we're fighting in Iraq so we don't need to fight them over here, Michael Moore's going to look plenty stoopid.
