"Weapons of minor discomfort"

Thus Keith Olbermann describes the so-called WMD's Rick Santorum hyped this week. Reportedly, the contents of the obsolete shells would create a mild burning sensation if applied directly to the skin.
Jonathon Alter of Newsweek described Santorum's stunt as "a pathetic hail Mary pass."

Speculation on other blogs is that the Rove machine, figuring Santorum is done for anyway, sent him out to deliver this wacky message. If so it seems to have worked; it bought days of highly visible press coverage making it seem that WMDs in Iraq is still an open issue. And any negative fallout is focused only on Santorum.
