OK. Now can we stick a fork in the GOP nomination? Yes, yes … oh, all right. I’ll wait for Super Tuesday.
The Santorum surge over the last few weeks has been one of the more bizarre storylines of the entire election cycle. I flatter myself to think I saw it coming when I tweeted some time back that Santorum would be the VP nominee. But I didn’t see this coming. He gave Romney a run for his money with a hell of a lot less money. The punditariat think this is because the GOP is so extreme. I think it’s much simpler than that. Santorum believes the things he says. When he stands next to Mitt Romeny, it’s almost appealing … if you can stand the man at all. The one thing that always appeals to the American voter is sincerity.
