Maher Slams Santorum as the 'Little Creep That Could,' Romney Arrived With 'Fetus in a Jar'

During the opening monologue on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, host Maher derided Rick Santorum as "the little creep that could" because of the GOP presidential candidate's recent electoral victories. He also mocked the concern conservatives have about abortion by cracking that Mitt Romney had come to CPAC with a "fetus in a jar" to try to outdo Santorum with the audience. (Video below)

Referring to Santorum's victories in Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri from the past week, Maher hit the GOP candidate:

We have a new frontrunner - I feel like I say that every week - for the Republicans. Rick Santorum. Rick Santorum. It was, I know, for the longest time, he was on the end of the debates. The little creep that could, Rick Santorum.

Moments later, he mocked the views of pro-life conservatives as he made a crack about Romney. Maher:

You could tell that this Santorum surge has Mitt Romney a little rattled. He was at the CPAC convention today, and he showed up in a sweater vest with a fetus in a jar.
