Santorum’s “Endorsement” of Romney

Shorter Santorum:

Well, at least the Obamacare-inspiring heretic isn’t a blah person.

An endorsement via email? Isn’t that like breaking up with someone on Facebook?

Honest to god, I have zero faith in the American people’s sagacity (the dumb motherfuckers almost elected George W. Bush twice!), and the economy will probably still be in the shitter this November, which should doom the president’s reelection chances under normal circumstances.

But these aren’t normal circumstances. Romney is just an awful, horrible, terrible, heinous, unlikable candidate, and I’m not sure “at least he’s not Obama” will be enough to put Mittens over the top, since that line really only resonates with people insane enough to think Santorum, Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Cain, et al, aren’t bug-eyed loons and/or booger-eating idiots.

It’s not exactly where I’d hoped we’d be in the summer of 2012, but hell, I’ll take it.

As long as the other loons were still in the primary race (or at least as long as they thought they were still in the race) they were making statements that made Willard seem marginally human by comparison.  Now that the spotlight will be aimed full on him without shiny object distractions ordinary people (as opposed to us political junkies)will get a real feeling for just how awful, horrible, terrible, heinous and unlikable he really is.  Let’s sure hope so, anyway.

“Don’t vote for Romney, he’s worse than Bush,” is my message to moderates this year.
To Evangelicals (if I run across any) I’ll say, “If you vote for Romney you’re sending a message to the RNC you’ll vote for more non-Christian RINOs in the future.”

A while back, Jeff Fecke, of Alas! A Blog, crammed Willard into this nutshell:

He doesn’t have enough empathy to understand how his words will be heard by the non-über rich, and he doesn’t have enough smarts to learn to fake it.

Quite effectively, I’d say . . .

Jeff Fecke has his essence for sure.  But I think what most people also sense about him is a kind of contempt for real, people-to-people politics and for the notion of civic culture (something sadly lacking in general) as well as his utter cynicism, something I suspect he learned from his experience At Bain Capital.

is a kind of contempt for real, people-to-people politics

I think he’s got a kind of contempt for real people, full stop.

If I’d been cookie lady and he’d said ‘I’m not sure about these cookies, they don’t look like you made them’ I would’ve said ‘Yes I did, actually’ just to see him try and weasel his way out of it. 

The man has no fuckin’ manners.

I’d have dumped the box over his head in a display of utter contempt.
