Rick Santorum finally makes some sense in new video

Pin it

After yesterday's Florida primary, it looks like the Republican race to see who's going to lose to Obama in November is down to two, meaning the inevitable end of the Rick Santorum campaign is almost upon us. And I, for one, am going to truly miss it.

Now, let's be clear: There never really was a chance Santorum would get the nomination. Despite his "win" in the Iowa caucus, that was clearly more a protest vote after Republican voters found themselves left choosing between two men named Newt and Mitt. And sure, pockets of bigotry and the insane anti-female views that Santorum makes his primary platform still exist in America. No doubt about it. But just imagine the outpouring of support Obama would get if Santorum were the other choice — it would make the army of supporters from his 2008 campaign look like a grade-school pep rally.

The big problem, though, is that it's only now, after Santorum is but a soul-searching session with the Man Upstairs from ducking out of this election cycle, that he's finally starting to make some sense. The evidence:

Goddamn right. Fairy crutches are bullshit!
