I'm not sure whether I should give this one to BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski, who posted the clip, or to the Dutch TV correspondent doing the interview, but here's a wonderful clip of what happens when your candidate just makes stuff up. In this case, it's Rick Santorum, who has concocted (or, more likely, is repeating) fantasies about the Netherlands and euthanasia.
As I've mentioned before, I'm a big fan of all press secretaries, thanks to my long-ago past as one of them. So I'm not being sarcastic at all when I say that I feel for Santorum's Alice Stewart, who valiantly stays on message, repeating no matter how many times it takes that Santorum is simply pro-life, end of story, instead of actually answering the reporter's questions. That's her job! It's not as if there's a good answer available to her...I mean a good reality-based answer. I'm sure, too, that for virtually all potential Santorum voters in the remaining primaries, the essential truth of his euthanasia story would easily outweigh what anyone from the Netherlands has to say about the non-existence of the anti-euthanasia bracelets that the candidate has talked about.
Anyway, it's a very fun clip, and: Nice catch!
