Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum needs to distinguish himself from the rest of the GOP presidential contenders, and the culture warrior made some headway on that front on Meet the Press yesterday, declaring he opposes abortion even in cases of rape and incest and would support criminally charging doctors who provide them. This will damage him badly on the electability front, but should help endear him to hardcore religious conservatives in Iowa.
