14. But he is a shoo in for the nomination

He is next in line in the GOP pecking order. He will be fun to defeat.

He will help bring about the end of the repubs very quickly. Let them nominate a nut like little Ricky. Please!

3. Re-enter gay marriage and abortion as #1 & #2 campaign issues.

A gift for the democrats in 2016 as the worm has turned on these issues.

4. He's self sabotaging, just the way all the other religious patriarchs are

even if he is a little greasier than most of them.

One good thing about the ridiculous length of the US campaign season is that it does tend to eliminate Santorum when it makes itself known by the occasional mistake of such candidates in telling the truth about who they are.

Santorum is just pissy enough to run as a third party bible candidate if he doesn't get his way again.

5. Too much to hope that the 2016 Pubbie Primary will be another clown show?

Ricky organizing already for 2016 is almost too good to be true.

For a moment there, they thought they might have to work for a living.

With Rick on the scene, the jokes just write themselves.

Doesn't it just sit there and stink, and then dry up.

If only the Frothy Mixture would just dry up, and blow away.

22. His mere presence lowers the quality of all GOP candidates.

Because you know what they say:

A teaspoon of wine in a gallon of Santorum makes Santorum.
A teaspoon of Santorum in a gallon of wine... also makes Santorum.

26. Yet Another Example of the GOP losing Their Post-Election Collective Marbles

This is just another example of the GOP losing their post-election collective marbles. Other examples, Romney renews his 47%-lie comments, McCain melting down, racist threats against the President, secession plans, moving to Canada because they don't like health insurance with government controls like Canada has, a wide range of post-election conspiracy theories that are even crazier than usual, GOP firing employees, governors not implementing Obamacare, renewed cleansings of party moderates, the racism in their own party has increased from already high levels and refusing to pass violence against women act are just a few examples I can think of.

Of course, some of this like Cantor's plot to sabotage the economy began before the election loss but when more members of the party start acting like Cantor you know you're party is in trouble.

33. Losing due to their reckless extreme ideology in 2012

should be a clue for Ricky Sweater Vest, but I should know that 4 years is not enough time for them to acknowledge reality. Their world view is dated and not at all where the majority of this country want to go back to. 4 years from now it will be more than a majority for us, by them I suspect it will be the point of no return...EVER.

We do not need another Presidential candidate with massive skeletons in his closet because of connections to a secretive cult with extremist views.

39. According to recent Republican history, Santorum is the frontrunner for 2016

The Republicans usually select the Runner-Up from the previous Presidential nomination race to be the nominee the next time.

Eg. McCain was 2nd to Bush and then became the nominee, Romney was 2nd to McCain and then became the nominee etc.

But I think even the Republicans are likely to break with history next time. Surely they won't be crazy enough to nominate someone like Santorum?
