Mitt Can Now Exhale…While Santorum Throws Up

“We didn’t win by a lot, but we won by enough and that’s all that counts.”

That’s what Mitt said after his narrow victory over Santorum in Michigan. If he weren’t Mormon, he would have probably ended the night staring at an empty bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. It was one nail-biting night.

Since he landed in Michigan, everyone played up his wanting to let GM and Chrysler crash and burn. That didn’t go over well with those hardest hit, but now recovering because of the bailout. And his little comment about his wife driving a couple of Cadillacs? A lot of Americans are hanging on to their cars longer because, economically, they can’t afford a new one. Nice disconnect.

So what gave him that too-close-for-comfort win? I totally believe he has his rival Rick Santorum to thank.

Oh Ricky. Media exposure is great on a campaign. But when you agree to be on This Week with George Stephanopolus, try not to say that the words of a revered President who was assassinated makes you want to throw up. You end up regretting it big time. And then seeing your exit numbers make you really throw up.

Message to Mitt: Send Rick some nice flowers. Because he opened his pie hole and all that “throw up” came out, you ended up looking that much more sane and reasonable. Luckies to you on Tuesday.

    True – his reference to the Kennedy quote wasn’t good. But it was also in the midst of his thumping the social conservative stump, and I believe, that gave many voters a cause-to-pause moment.

    Yippee … the circus will be in full swing this week for me. Yippee. Then maybe after next Tuesday, my phone will take a break from ringing.

    FYI: I have your fav – satirical headlines today.

    Spinny,

    If Rick Santorum had stayed on message – job creation, deficit reduction, lower energy prices, et cetera… – he would have smoked Romney, even in Michigan. Romney is not popular with us Mighiganders.

    But Santorum’s constant digression from the blue collar schtick to a religious topic is not appreciated. People hear that nonsense and think a President Santorum would institute a theocracy. The American people may be warmed to hear of faithful politicians, but they lose interest when it’s a candidate who would have been beating the war drums during the march toward Jerusalem.

    “My wife drives a couple of Cadillacs.” LMAO. What an idiot.

    I agree with Terrance, Santorum missed the boat if he had stayed on the message from his speech in Iowa he would have won…..I have been looking over the campaigns and i see a change coming and i will post on it soon….

    BEST HEADLINE EVER!

    Yep – Poor Saintly Santorum preached the wrong sermon at the wrong time to this crowd. In a group of people with nothing in common with Mitt, Santorum’s gift for ill-timed nonsense managed to make Mitt look like the best choice. Michigan was his to lose, and he lost it. Go home and pray, altar boy!

    I read the other day where McCain called the GOP primaries a “Greek Tragedy”. Poor Greeks, now they’re insulted too. 🙂

    Apparently, St. Ronnie would make little Ricky throw up, too….santorum probably doesn’t know that the patron saint of the GOP had THIS to say about the separation of church and state:
    “We establish no religion in this country, we command no worship, we mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are, and must remain, separate. All are free to believe or not believe, all are free to practice a faith or not, and those who believe are free, and should be free, to speak of and act on their belief. At the same time that our Constitution prohibits state establishment of religion, it protects the free exercise of all religions. And walking this fine line requires government to be strictly neutral.” ~Reagan Speech to Temple Hillel and Community Leaders in Valley Stream, October 26, 1984

    Blasphemy!!!!

    Santorum is insane in the membrane.
