Well, cats and kiddies. It looks like the General Election is on like Donkey Kong!
Updated 3:02 p.m. – Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum suspended his campaign on Tuesday, clearing Mitt Romney’s path to the Republican presidential nomination.
Citing weekend reflection with his family, prompted in part by a hospital stay for his youngest daughter, Santorum suspended his campaign, effective today.
“Ladies and gentleman, we made the decision to get into this race at our kitchen table against all the odds,” Santorum said in remarks to reporters in Gettysburg, Pa.
“We made a decision over the weekend that while this presidential race for us is over for me and we will suspend our campaign effective today. We are not done fighting.”
The announcement effectively stifles opposition to Romney from within the GOP; amid signs that the Republican establishment has started to rally around Romney, the former Massachusetts governor no longer faces any serious conservative challenger.
First off, let me say that I’m sure we all wish Bella Santorum a speedy recovery and good health.
Secondly. it was looking like Mr Santorum was headed for a humiliating defeat in Pennsylvania, just six years after losing his Senate Seat in the same state. So, it’s not as if he had a chance in hell anyway.
Third, I think we all need to sit down for a moment and reflect that an insanely stupid homophobic/misogynous dingbat who doesn’t even know HOW FUCKING PHOTOSYNTHESIS WORKS came dangerously close to having access to the Nuclear Football and Seal Team Six.
You done? Good. Then let’s resolve to never let that happen again.
If we as a nation can resolve to stop Pauly Shore from making movies, we can do anything.
Anyway, congratulations to Mr. Romney. We look forward to the debate ahead.
My personal advice? Stay away from the gays.
Only heaven knows what Dan Savage is coming up with for your name.
