Romney, Are You OK? Romney, Are You OK? Are You OK, Romney?

I still think, if Newt Gingrich gets out of the presidential race, that Rick Santorum is going to be the Republican nominee, stealing the nomination from Mitt Romney, and leaving him, like “Annie” in the Michael Jackson song, bleeding out on the floor, bewildered by what hit him.

Politically, not literally, of course.

Rick Santorum, meet your inner avatar.


Here’s Rick Santorum quite clearly enjoying the wave that he’s starting to ride.



And if I were a political adviser to Rick Santorum and he asked me what should be his campaign’s brand marker, what would I say?

One word.

    Still hoping for a Santorum nomination? That would all but ensure an Obama victory.

      Yes, it would. And a loss on the Republican side (by nominating Santorum) might help the GOP end its inclination to religious authoritarian idiocy in future elections.

      On the other hand, this could be a Republican year if the Iran situation gets worse and gas prices double, and Santorum could become president despite his obvious liabilities. I certainly wouldn’t want that.

      Santorum is a weird amalgamation of Richard Nixon, George Wallace, and Pat Robertson. Absent its urban libertarians, that’s what the Republican Party has devolved into.
