Rick Santorum? Yes, Rick Santorum 

He's going to do WHAT?                                                       (ap photo)

Another would-be contender is sniffing around the 2012 field. Somebody call Dan Savage! It's former Sen. Rick Santorum!

National Review has a letter Santorum is sending around to members of his political action committee, America's Foundation:

"I’m convinced that conservatives need a candidate who will not only stand up for our views, but who can articulate a conservative vision for our country’s future," Santorum writes. "And right now, I just don’t see anyone stepping up to the plate."

"After talking it over with my wife Karen and our kids," Santorum writes, "I am considering putting my name in for the 2012 presidential race."

Oh, baby. The political reporter in us wants to send Karen Santorum flowers. What a fun race! Bring that! But -- is the return of Santorum precisely what the GOP needs right now?
