Nothing To See Here: Sen. Bill Nelson and the JFK barf factor

Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida's Democratic Party incumbent, sent me a fund-raising appeal today.

It seems that Sauron, Satan and Darth Vader (not necessarily in that order) are all aligned against noble Mr. Nelson (bold emphasis added):
I just got a new potential Republican opponent from the extreme right in the Florida Senate race.  Perhaps more significantly his campaign is being run by two of the top operatives behind Rick Santorum's presidential bid -- the same Rick Santorum who said that President Kennedy made him want to throw up.
Did Rick Santorum say that President Kennedy made him want to throw up?

  1. Not exactly, but he did state that aspects of President Kennedy 1960 speech made him throw up. Specifically regarding the seperation of church and state. I'm sure he would throw up at George Washinton too for “The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion.”. So, Santorum says the words of Kennedy made him want to throw up. Yes it was a specific instance, but no less true.

  2. Thanks, but we do not seek answers with the "Nothing To See Here" category but instead use cases like this to compare the type of fact check stories that interest conservatives with those that interest the mainstream media (esp. PolitiFact).

    "Not exactly, but he did state that aspects of President Kennedy 1960 speech made him (want to) throw up."

    Ah, better!
