Santorum Campaign Dead Like a Dog!

By Bifford Caulfield — Rick Santorum, saying that he surprised everyone by running as an underdog and doing so well, suspended his campaign yesterday — but promised he would fight on!  I’m not sure for who and for what, but judging from the rhetoric of his campaign speeches, I’m guessing he’s going to FIGHT on for women loathing gay haters.  I don’t know who else he would be fighting for.

But, for my money, it looks a lot like he has bungy-corded himself to the not-inconsiderable haunches of the mortally-wounded Pachyderm as it lumbers toward extinction.  Most of Santorum’s ideas were still-born (but not aborted)  before he was born, and are only kept alive by the last desparate gasp of the mysoginist, gay-hating evangelist crazy muddle still left in the back-eddies at the far right fringes of the  party.  Popular sentiment across the nation and death by old age of these cultural dinosaurs will finally put an end of most of this stuff in this generation, I suspect.
