Because he's in the news ... [Jan. 4th, 2012|11:42 am]

In 2005 I was taking Amtrak to Washington D.C.. I'd just gotten onto the train and sat down when Rick Santorum got on, talking on his cell phone. He made a right hand turn into the car in front of mine when someone said "That's the quiet car, sir." He turned around and sat down next to me. He talked on the phone the whole way down, telling people about a book he had coming out. I photographed him two other times as part of news events, but, you know, that's not nearly as interesting a story.

Great. Something for me to tape to a punching bag to work out frustrations on.

Wow, I'm glad I'm not on the same continent as this guy, I would probably find a new seat if he sat down next to me.

I would've reached for something and snuck an elbow into that grill.
Oops, sorry.

That's a really nice picture - did you know who he was when he sat down next to you?

I'm sure that he wishes your photo was the first thing to pop up on a Santorum google search!

One of my least favorite ex-politicians, risen from the political dead.

Not good.

Argh, another reason to dislike him. But good picture, none the less. :-)
