Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

If you’re an also-ran Republican candidate for president, what do you between elections? Okay, but then what do you do between releasing books and promotional DVDs?

Former candidate and U.S. senator from Pennsylvania Rick Santorum has decided to become a columnist for the World Net Daily. For those who have argued that the Republican Party needs to move back into the center with a more welcoming tone, Santorum’s move is a step in the opposite direction. The site often traffics in wild, unsubstantiated, religious-themed conspiracy of the kind Santorum has only dabbled in.

For WND, hiring Santorum actually represents a dramatic shift to the center.

The ex-senator may be the nation’s pre-eminent homophobe and spokesman for fundamentalist values, but he did operate in Washington D.C. for more than a decade with the occasional demonstration of pragmatism. His first rant takes on a safe target for the right wing — the U.N., which he accuses of wanting to pave the way for euthanizing his disabled child. It’s a wild swing at a nearly irrelevant issue. But for World Net Daily, it’s tame.

Here are 5 WND stories more extreme than most anything you can expect from Rick Santorum.
