Rick Santorum, environmentalist; plus everything you thought you knew about politics is wrong (read-this roundup)

Our colleague Eli Saslow reports that the former Pennsylvania senator’s campaign is making use of a massive cache of yard signs produced for the now-defunct Herman Cain campaign.

The signs were destined for the Dumpster, but Santorum plans to use the wire frames and “replace the thin plastic signs, subbing ‘Yes We Cain’ for ‘Rick Santorum for President: Join the Fight,’” Saslow says.

Clever—and so green.

Elsewhere, everything we thought we knew about politics—or at least political theater—is being proven plain old wrong.

First, our colleagues Chris Cillizza and Aaron Blake tell us that endorsements don’t matter. Say what?

Then, our colleague T.W. Farnam rocks the very foundations of the political world by debunking the mantra that money talks.

Oh, and welcome to the twitterverse, Michelle Obama: FLOTUS now goes by the handle @MichelleObama.
