Santorum Touts Right to Bare Arms, Raise Dough

Dowdy sweaters have not gotten this much attention since Mr. Rogers buttoned up his trademark cardigan. But it’s all about the vest for style watchers on the presidential campaign trail.

The Rick Santorum sweater vest, that is. Wherever he appears, the former Pennsylvania senator is sporting a V-necked one, in navy, gray, tan, or some other solid color.

The vests have become so much of his image, in fact, that the candidate joked to CNN’s Erin Burnett: “One of my supporters said this is my Second Amendment vest. The right to bare arms.”

Story continues below video.




When Santorum invoked the joke again on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” today, duly noting that it is a constituent’s line, not his, regular panelist John Heilemann ramped it up with word-playing quip of his own, saying that Santorum probably would support the right to arm bears.

The Santorum sweater vest already has inspired its own Twitter feed, (@FearRicksVest), website (FearRicksVest.com), and a music video, “Sleeves Slow Me Down,” on YouTube.

And now you can own your very own Santorum sweater vest. Donors who give $100 or more to the campaign will get one for free, for a limited time only.

“Perfect for demonstrating solidarity with true conservatives, this vest is a great way to show your support for Rick. It's 100% cotton, made in the USA, comes in grey, and is yours for your contribution of $100 or more. Don't let sleeves slow you down,” the pitch on his campaign website says.
