13. I want to add Ricky Santorum to my whining hypocrite list
Still mooching off his parents.

In far too many families with young children, both parents are working, when, if they really took an honest look at the budget, they might find they dont both need to.

-- U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, in his 2005 book, It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good

The Santorums bought their oversized Shenstone estate even though his financial disclosure forms since 2001 have shown little family income beyond his Senate salary, now $162,100, and he admits that life hasnt been financially easy. The senator made a startling remark to The New York Times Magazine last spring: We live paycheck to paycheck, absolutely. But he explained that his parents help out. Theyre by no means wealthy -- theyre two retired VA employees -- but theyll send a check every now and then, he said.
