Santorum Correctly Warns GOP They ‘Can Do Better’ Than Mitt Romney

  everybody hurts

They need you now, Dick, more than ever.Well, Florida happened and HURRAH! We may never again have to hear the phrase “Space Coast,” or watch another remote feed from living crematorium and unmanaged-anger community The Villages. Romney managed to not be too deeply loathed by 46 percent of Republican voters while Newt received a non-hatred rating of 32 percent, and vowed to campaign today, campaign tomorrow, campaign forever. So, yes, we will have our little jewelry piglet to kick around a little longer! At least while unhinged millionaires continue to bankroll his little insanity project. Ron Paul was there, -ish, and lost, which is winning in re: the Floridian Republican primary in 2012. Rick Santorum also lost, although slightly less mightily, and accidentally dropped some truth to the frightened drifters hired to fill out the audience for his fourth ‘contrast-filled’ concession speech.

This particular address was notable only for acknowledging the open secret that everyone pretty much can’t stand the Republican candidates:

[It’s] great to be back here on the campaign trail, talking about the important issues of the day. And if that’s — if there’s one message that I think we got from the campaign in Florida is that Republica ns can do better. We can do better than this. We can do better than the — the discussion and the — and the dialogue and the — and the accusations that were going on in the state of Florida. And — and, really, this campaign, you know, went downhill.

Given that 300,000 fewer Republican voters showed up this year compared to 2008 (opting instead to stay home and search for feral cats that might have gotten buried in their hoard), it’s sort of comforting to have one of these dudes finally admit just how repugnant they all are. Even more so since new polls continue to confirm this, every hour, on the 2s, 5s, and 7s. It won’t change how horrid everyone finds these fart hoses but still! [Fox News/NYT]
