A picture is worth 1,000 words: Sisters for Santorum

Spotted in Steubenville, Ohio, on Super Tuesday:

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — Rick Santorum's Super Tuesday rally in the eastern Ohio town of Steubenville drew a medium-sized crowd, including a group of Franciscan nuns from the neighboring town of Toronto.

Four sisters are in attendance tonight out of thirty in the order. All four have stickers on their habits indicating that they voted today. One, Sister Catherine Lynn, is Canadian but became an American citizen just to vote against President Obama this election cycle, she said.

She chose Santorum because of "his support of family values," she said. "And with the mandate right now..." It's not important to her that a Catholic be in office, she said, just that it not be Obama.

Ironically, Santorum ended up losing the Catholic vote in Ohio yesterday:

According to CNN's exit polls, Romney took 43% of Ohio Catholics on Super Tuesday, compared to 31% for Rick Santorum, and Romney beat Santorum overall by 38% to 37%.
