Please play the above song for the duration of this post. Not only because it describes my emotions over losing Rick Santorum from the Republican primary, but also because it is his favorite song.
I’ll miss you Rick. We’ve had some good times these past few years. Whether you were beating up on Mitt Romney or threatening military action with Iran, you kept us entertained at the very least. Not to mention you put out the most terrifying political ad I’ve ever seen, and not even in a “Wow that guy could be the President, oh my God what is this country coming to” kind of way.
I can only hope we’ll see you again in 2016. Good luck running against some combination of Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and whatever random Herman Caines or Michelle Bachmanns decide to show up. And Ron Paul. Gotta bet on him to run again. Yea, it’s going to be hard. No one said it would be easy, Rick. But someone has to stand up to fight porn, and why the heck shouldn’t it be you. Excuse my language, but dang it Rick, you’re a winner. You won Iowa and you won Mississippi and Alabama at the same time. Sure none of that really matters because you didn’t win the nomination, but that’s just a technicality. No one is going to remember that in four years when they google you to remind themselves of who you are.
You had a great run buddy. I can’t wait for next time.
