During an interview with MSNBC on Monday, Rick Santorum’s aid, Alice Stewart, had “a slip of the tongue,” while she was explaining controversial comments Santorum made over the weekend about President Obama’s “phony theology.” She was trying to clarify that the GOP candidate was referring to his “radical environmentalist policies,” and slipped up and said “Islamic policies.” Stewart called MSNBC minutes later to correct her statement for the record. The Huffington Post has the full story:
