Santorum Tebowing

This picture of presidential candidate Rick Santorum “Tebowing” (a reference to how Tim Tebow kneels in prayer before his air hockey games or whatever) is being passed around by his supporters. I find it… odd.

I like how they’re snickering and mocking what theyre doing yet will still get evangelical support. people see what they want to, even if that means someone giggling over the notion of being deep in thoughtful prayer = “actually being in deep thoughtful prayer” – so be it.

A friend says “Interesting that they were praying in front of a camera, in an open-faced semi-circle with Santorum in the middle.” – but like i said – they’re not praying. they’re posing. it can be seen as a sincere sign of solidarity, it can be seen as a flippant insult, it can be seen as a shameless pandering photo-op. something tells me that if instead of Santorum, Gingrich, Obama or Romney were the only thing to be replaced in this photo – it would be received quite differently by the people who like it with Santorum in the candidate slot.
