But Santorum has an odd explanation for drawing a blank on his own words. He says his wife must have written the paragraph. As he told George Stephanopolous: "I don't know - that's a new quote for me..."
The orphaned quote:
"Sadly the propaganda launched in the 1960s has taken root. The radical feminist succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness."
You can see why he'd just as soon forget the whole thing, or at least concede that his wife's possible anonymous contribution to his book was one of her happy "professional accomplishments''.
In his case, writing a book may indeed take a family.
(While we have McRick in sight, has anybody asked him what he thinks about vasectomies? Sinful? Maybe somebody will ask him when he shows up as the star of the Summit County Republican dinner Thursday night.)
