Santorum's New Bowling-Based Strategy

Posted By on Thu, Mar 29, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Rick Santorum still stands basically zero chance of becoming the Republican nominee for President, much less of beating Barack Obama in November, so why not just start challenging his rivals to bowl-offs?


On Wednesday, Santorum issued a challenge to Mitt Romney: a "bowl-off" in advance of next week's Wisconsin primary.

What exactly would be at stake wasn't clear. It seemed like simultaneously a bid to underscore Santorum's blue-collar cultural credentials — during his tour of Wisconsin, he's also been playing shuffleboard and drinking beer — and an attempt to get the front-runner, who is increasingly ignoring his provocations, on Santorum's turf. According to the Washington Examiner, Santorum "studied Bowling 101 at Penn State University, has shot a high game of 241 (out of 300) and opened one recent game with seven straight strikes" and owns his own bowling ball.

Obama seems to be a pretty lousy bowler (as evidenced by the clip above), so maybe this strategy could be something, at least in capturing the elusive vote of the league bowler. I mean, if you can't pick up a bucket split, can you be trusted with foreign policy?
