Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was a bit unsettled to learn that Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said in a 2008 speech that “Satan has his sights on the United States of America.”

To be sure, the left will twist the words out of context, Limbaugh said on his show Tuesday, according to Politico. “It’s part of the predictable attempt to impugn Santorum as an absolute religious nut and wacko,” he said. “But he did say these things, and he’ll have to have an answer for these things when queried.”

Santorum’s remarks, made at Ave Maria University near Naples, Fla., went viral on the Internet on Tuesday.

“That stuff is out there,” Limbaugh said. “It’s headlined on Drudge, and the left has it. And Santorum will have to deal with it. He’ll have to answer it. I don’t know. It’s just not the kind of stuff you hear a presidential candidate talk about. It’s not ordinary in that sense.”

Santorum indeed offered a defense to reporters on the campaign trail Tuesday. “It’s a joke. It’s absurd,” he said. “You know, I‘m a person of faith. I believe in good and evil. I think if somehow or another because you’re a person of faith, you believe in good and evil is a disqualifier for president, we’re going to have a very small pool of candidates who can run for president."
