Exeunt Santorum

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on April 11, 2012

And it was the right decision too, given the state of his campaign, his prospects (increasingly diminishing) of winning his home state of Pennsylvania, and most importantly of all, the state of his daughter’s health. In any event, Santorum’s withdrawal represents yet another reason for Republicans to unite behind Mitt Romney’s candidacy, which I guess is why the perpetually vain Newt Gingrich, who basically pulled out of the race a few days ago, is now calling on Republicans to unite behind him–as though he has any chance whatsoever of overcoming Romney’s massive delegate lead.

    I was under the impression exeunt was a plural of exit, but I agree otherwise.

      I suppose I could respond by saying that Santorum is Whitmanesque in that he is large and contains multitudes, but you are quite right, and the word was ill-chosen.

    Well, our good friend Mitt Romney is certainly expecting us to unite behind him, and I suppose the bucket worth of crap he’s dumped over the heads of his fellow Republicans and their supporters is a small thing among friends, but for my part I prefer to be wooed with a little more charm than what has been seen thus far.  I’ll vote for him I suppose, but if he wants more than that it’s up to him.  A tidal wave of dissatisfaction with Obama will not be enough to win it for him.  I am ready.  I have heard from him over and over why the other candidates would be a horrible mistake, and frankly the man made me ill.  Let us hear from the candidate now why he thinks we should support him.
