Why is Rick Santorum Still in the Presidential Race?

Rick Santorum, the anti-gay Catholic who, like so many other Republican candidates, invoked God at his Presidential campaign announcement, is still in the race despite literally polling at 0.0%.

The Onion has the scoop on why he hasn’t dropped out of the race yet.

Santorum told reporters Friday that he was still waiting for the go-ahead from God to suspend his presidential campaign. “My relationship with God drives every decision in my life, so here I am, still going through the motions eight months into this presidential run, looking for any green light from Him that I can end this thing”…

If it’s in the Onion, it must be true.

Now if only God would release Santorum from his misery.
