Right after the Florida primaries I said stick a fork in Gingrich. I said he was done even though he did not know it yet. Now entire weeks go by without a mention of him in the media. Santorum is likewise finished, but won't publicly admit it. That's because he has not yet reached the Acceptance phase of his terminal campaign. 1. Denial: 2. Anger: 3. Bargaining: 4. Depression: Today is the Wisconsin primary, and Santorum is going to lose. And Santorum knows that is pretty much the ball game if he loses Wisconsin. It can be nothing less than a gut punch to Santorum tonight. But he will probably stick around for the Pennsylvania primary on April 24 since that is his home state and he needs a symbolic victory to reach step 5. 5. Acceptance: Deep down inside, Santorum knows he's terminal. However, as I listened to him on Meet The Press this weekend, he kept making references to the 2008 campaign and pointed out Romney stayed as long in the race back then as he, Santorum, is now. And then it hit me. Santorum is not campaiging in the 2012 election. He stopped doing that when he took time out during the Floriday primary to be with his daughter in the hospital. Ever since his return, he has been campaigning in the 2016 election. He is hoping Romney loses this election. Look at his statements for the last few months. If you aren't going to vote for me, then you may as well re-elect Obama because Romney is no different. And so forth. He's rat-fucking Romney (All The President's Men reference). What a bastard.
