Santorum Discovers the Limits of Nostalgia

Rosie Gray smartly points out that Rick Santorum's campaign feels not like "a Tea Party gathering but a kind of Tea Party reunion."

"The crowds at a Christian school, an American Legion post, and a banquet hall seemed to represent the limits of a conservative grassroots that has failed to ignite in this crucial season, and the candidate matched the moment. The emotion Santorum evokes most poignantly isn't hope, anger, or fear: It's nostalgia."
