An Early Christmas Present From Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum Hat

He didn’t quite make it through the Republican primaries, but not to worry – Rick Santorum has a fallback career: Christmas Movie Producer.

Following his failed bid for the 2012 presidency, Rick Santorum became the CEO of the Christian film production company EchoLight. The former Republican senator from Pennsylvania is determined to have an impact on American culture one way or another!

“This film hearkens back to the heartwarming and uplifting movies of yesteryear,” Santorum said in the press release. “The story inspires renewed hope in the miracle of Christmas and illustrates that this holiday is not just about reindeer and receiving gifts. The Christmas Candle will remind audiences of the spirit and sense of wonder of the season – something that is often lost in our modern era.”

But the best part of the movie isn’t its strong Christian values or even its battle against the War on Christmas, it’s the star: Susan Boyle! Yes, the Britain’s Got Talent sensation will make her “big” screen debut in Rick Santorum’s The Christmas Candle.

Rick Santorum is particularly proud of his Christmas movie (in theatres November 22!), writing in an email to Santorum’s Patriot Voices group that, “our team has done a great job turning out votes on Election Day, and we are now going to use this same network to make an impact on the culture by turning out people in the community to see this terrific Christmas movie.”

As for his reasons for making the film, it wasn’t just to promote good Christian values – he also wanted to stick it to George Clooney.

“People have asked me how is it that I can go from politics to working in the movie business. I simply say: if liberal Hollywood actors and producers can get involved in politics then conservative politicians can get involved in Hollywood.”

Well, it worked for Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger – albeit the other way around…

And now for the trailer:
