Santorum Suspends Death March to Nowhere

Finally acceding to the inescapable reality of mathematics, and the likelihood that he would be again badly whomped in his home state of Pennsylvania, the Man Who Would Be America’s Presidential Pope, Rick Santorum, is suspending his futile and demented campaign for the presidency today, according to the New York Times and other news sources. Some have floated the idea that Santorum would be a good VP pick for Romney to placate the angry Christopublicans, but I wouldn’t bet on it. This boy is babbling-kook crazy and even Romney knows that — he’d scare away more voters than he’d attract. Politically, this is the end of the line for St. Santy and his peculiar uber-Catholic variety of theocratic Republicanism. A cozy berth at the Heritage Foundation or Focus on the Family awaits.
