"... the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else," Santorum said.
"It's being drawn to Iraq and it's not being drawn to the U.S. You
know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don't want the Eye to come
back here to the United States."
He simply meant that by waging the War on Terror in Iraq, we're
keeping it from having to be waged here.
What is unclear to me is the point of pretending that he meant
something other than he did, or even more mysterious, of using this
list as a forum for partisan political discussion.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
Hope this helps.
