Hey, does that sweater vest come in XXL?

Rick Santorum was back in Iowa Thursday, telling interviewers that he has not problems with the state GOP's miscount that wrongly said that Mitt Romney had won the state's 2012 caucuses.

But he told the Des Moines Register's Kathie Obradovich that he did have one second thought about his extensive time in the Hawkeye State:

" 'I’m never eating in public again in Iowa,' Santorum said with a laugh. He was dishing with reporters about the movie “Caucus!” which made a running joke of the 2012 Republican presidential candidate noshing at campaign events. One scene shows him hovering over a dessert table at the back of the room at one event.

"Santorum, the eventual winner of the caucuses, also pointed out that he’s frequently shown in the documentary arguing with Iowans. He had no argument Wednesday with the way the Republican caucuses were conducted. He said the caucuses in 2012 performed better than they ever had, and better than similar events in the country. 'So, I don’t think there’s anything for Iowa to apologize for,' he said during the taping of 'Iowa Press.'

Here's the Des Moines Register columnist's report on the latest visit to Iowa by the Pennsylvanian turned Virginian, during which he confided, .“No question about it. I’m very open to taking on another run, and right now I’m just doing everything that I would be doing if I was going to run.''

In case you were in any doubt.
