Speaking at the Iowa State Republican Party Convention on Saturday, likely 2016 GOP presidential primary candidate Rick Santorum said something funny that was not intended as a joke.

“Look, I understand why campaigns and all of you want to go out and just bang the president,” he told the crowd gathered in Des Moines. “It’s fun. I mean, it’s fun. It’s easy. It’s getting easier every day.”

The crowd laughed at Santorum’s remark, though possibly not with him…

Santorum carried the 2012 GOP Iowa caucus, beating Mitt Romney by just 34 votes.
