Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Herman Cain vs Rick Santorum

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Herman Cain vs Rick Santorum May 30, 2015

Rick Santorum officially announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination and a writer on Herman Cain’s website named Robert Laurie is hilariously attacking Santorum for being unelectable. Dude, you work for Herman Cain, for crying out loud.

I may give Bernie Sanders a lot of flak for being unelectable, but I don’t want anyone to think Democrats have the market cornered when it comes to candidates with no chance of winning. Though he hasn’t announced, we assume Jeb Bush is going to seek the Republican nomination, and the party already has Mike Huckabee in the race. Now, it will have to deal with a doomed Rick Santorum candidacy as well.

Santorum made his announcement in a televised interview with pretend journalist George Stephanopoulos, and you can watch the clip below. To quickly sum it up, he’s angling to re-fight the values-and-morality campaign that failed him in 2008, and will have even less traction this time around.

….And that’s about it.

Does he bring anything to the table that hasn’t already been rejected? Nope…

Perhaps they’re making a desperate bid to remind people that they still exist. It could be that we’re simply watching a giant game of “me too” played by people who are terrified of being “left out.” Maybe it’s that they each have an army of yes men telling them they actually have a prayer of winning, when in reality they’ll just cannibalize each other and steal time from candidates who could genuinely go the distance.

Sweet, sweet irony. The website of the least electable candidate in recent history — though he did win me a $2500 bet with one of his advisers, who astonishingly thought he was going to win the nomination — is calling Rick Santorum unelectable. Herman Cain got a total of 13,603 votes in Republican primaries in 2012, less than a thousand more than Fred Karger (Who? Exactly.). Santorum got 3,932,069 votes. Hilarious.
