House Party movie poster

Fresh from his John-McCain-doesn't-understand-torture flub, Pa's favorite ex Senator presidential candidate returns to the warm embrace of Iowa . . . though presumably not with his floaties and/or Speedo.

The Santorum camp yesterday released a loooong Iowa itinerary for today and Saturday that at first listed a "Presidential Pool Party" tonight at a house in Davenport. That description has since been changed to "House Party" but that won't stop us from making fun of it anyway. (See above.) We're going to assume though that the party won't go To Da Break Of Dawn, or if it does, it will provide a wild backdrop for Slick Rick to drop the needle on Fox & Friends when he appears at 6:15 am Eastern time on Saturday morning.

We'll see how many times they ask him about Tim Pawlenty raining on the parade by making his prez run super-official with an Iowa announcement Monday.

This is not to say people will let him forget the McCain thing either. In a time-capsulesque look at political discourse of 2011, Meghan McCain alluded to both Jersey Shore and the New Yorker in tweeting that "Rick Santorum lecturing my father about torture is like JWOWW lecturing Malcom Gladwell about writing."

And the Onion got into the fray too, with the hilarious fake interviews below (click for larger version):
