I'm kinda bummed that Rick Santorum has suspended his presidential campaign, thus ending the monkey knife fight known as the GOP 2012 primary race. Of course, there's some hilarity to be had in the article, in light of the definition of Santorum's name (note to Laura, both links are to that site):
He was a long-dormant volcano due for a surprise eruption.
Yeah, an eruption of santorum has got to be a surprise.
I'll miss Rick's campaign, because it bled Rmoney's SuperPAC backers of millions of dollars in what amounted to a mutual destruction pact, and it forced Mitt to tack hard right, which will harm his chances in the general election. On second thought, though, the timing is pretty good, being so soon after the Etch-a-Sketch gaffe... Mitt's expected turn towards the center will take place soon afterward, making his conversion, hard enough to swallow to begin with, seem even more unprincipled and callow. How does Mitt walk back his Road to Dumbasscus conversion narrative?
Thank you, Rick Santorum. Thank you for stepping on Mitt Romney's limp dick for so long. Thank you for setting yourself up to be the possible front-runner in the 2016 presidential campaign (of course, Santorum did not endorse Romney, and probably wants him to lose this election so he can run in the next one).
Of course, Newt is sticking it out to the bitter end, thus ensuring some hilarity at the GOP convention. Isn't vindictiveness grand?
