Okay, this is both too good to be true and too ridiculous not to be: Esteemed presidential candidate/unrepentant bigot/NSFW Google Rick Santorum will be coming to California next Thursday, March 29 for a fundraiser and rally at a hotel or banquet room like a normal person the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield. Better yet, the fancy-looking press release I just got about the occasion makes absolutely no attempt to explain the choice of location, meaning we're left to guess. Is it a subtle homage to Ronald Reagan? A transparent attempt to combine campaign business and factory-tour pleasure? A result of being rejected by every other venue in the Bay Area? Who the hell knows. But this may be an excellent moment to get your bellyflops on.
