Don't Let the Door Hit You...Santorum

The sad thing about the news that Rick Santorum is ending his campaign is that there really isn't anything to write about it. I mean, who cares? No one ever took him seriously. Even when he (kind of) won Iowa, no one gave a crap. About the only thrill Santorum gave us were a few brief moments when it looked like he might humiliate Romney in his birth state of Michigan. And that didn't pan out. The thing about Santorum is that he isn't funny. He's not even unintentionally funny. I mean Herman Cain was funny. Newt Gingrich is a laugh-riot (student janitors and moon colonies, anyone?). Ron Paul can actually crack a few good jokes. Michele Bachmann is a joke. And what can we say about Rick Perry that isn't funny?

Santorum is just a grim tight-ass with a dark and delusional worldview. He doesn't restrict himself to the usual Republican practice of punching down and sucking up (which, incidentally, is one definition of unfunny). Santorum punches in all directions, like a man beset by venomous gnats. He could be the least optimistic man America has produced. He's like a hate-filled pustule that tries to pass itself off as concerned about the children.

There aren't enough negative words in the Oxford English Dictionary for me to properly describe my utter contempt for Rick Santorum and every thing he stands for, and pretends to stand for.

I'm sorry to see him go, though, because he's right about Romney. Romney really is a phony. He really is pulling the wool over conservatives' eyes. He doesn't stand for anything. And Santorum was pointing it out every day. The truest things Santorum said during the whole campaign were targeted at Mitt Romney. He was doing real damage to Mitt, and I was loving every moment of it.

And, no, Santorum doesn't have any future in the Republican Party. He didn't earn anything during this campaign but the admiration of a bunch of end times home-schoolers. In 2016, we'll see the GOP's A-Team, and Santorum won't be in the top echelon.

If it wasn't for the poor health of his suffering daughter, I would pile even more abuse on Santorum's head as he walks out the door. My one final parting shot, and I think Fox News already knows this, is to point out that people can give Santorum a teevee show if they want, but no one will watch it.
