In the Who Cares Department, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum took the first step in a run for the 2012 Republican nomination by announcing on Fox News that is is creating a cleverly named “testing the waters fund.”

No, that’s not the real name. Instead, the official name is the equally original “Rick Santorum Exploratory Committee,” which sounds either like a group of proctologists are hunting him down, or that he’s the den leader of a spelunking club.

Regardless, Santorum, who lost his senate seat to Bob “The Unibrow” Casey in 2006, does have a modicum of support among social and religious conservatives. The question for Santorum is to see if can raise enough money to be relevant, which makes sense, since Fox News suspended him as a paid pundit last month. He’s gotta pay the bills somehow!

In a related note, the White House has yet to confirm my suspicion that the actual cause of Vice President Joe Biden’s alleged bout of narcolepsy was caused by someone whispering to him the news of Santorum’s impending bombshell announcement.
