Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

It’s looking more & more like I won’t be casting a Presidential ballot in November.

As you all know, the Rommerhoid won Ill-noise – and though he didn’t garner 50 percent, it wasn’t really that close.

And then, today, Widdle Ricky Santorum pretty much committed political suicide when he said we’d be better off with a second Bambi term instead of the Mormoncharian Candidate (hat tip: Jim Hoft):

Rick Santorum today suggested it would be better to stick with President Obama over a candidate that might be “the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future” — a shot at chief rival Mitt Romney.

“You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there,” said Santorum. “If you’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the etch a sketch candidate of the future.”

It’s yet another “Booker T moment”: “He didn’t just say that.  Tell me he didn’t just say that.”

Denizens, you heard it here first: Santorum is leading in Louisiana at the moment.  If he manages to keep from screwing that one up, it’s still the last state he’s gonna win.  If I’m Romney, every single commercial I run from now until Tampa Bay will have that quote in it.

Every.  Single.  One.

G’night, Ricky, thanks for playing.

(And for what it’s worth, I’m writing in Rick Perry – both in the primary & the general.  Not that it’ll do any good, but still)

An old friend of ours here at the Realm™, Robert Plett, would be shaking his head sadly at us and mouthing, “I told you so, I told you so…”

Don’t be surprised if we have a bona fide  third party in 2013.

    Darth, you and I may be in the same boat. The more I see of Romney, the more he seems like a Republican Obama. What makes this so bad, is that this will be the second presidential election in a row, where I do not cast a vote.

    The problem with any political party is that its only purpose is to get as many of its people elected as possible. The Republican “mainstream” understands that the American people want a nanny government. The only issue is how much, and what kind. That is why they have been pushing Romney. They believe that he is the only one who can get elected. What makes this so bad, is that I have about concluded that they are correct.

    The rob from the rich and give to the poor line plays well with an electorate made up of poor. As long as the only qualification to vote in our country is that one be a citizen who is 18 years of age, we will continue to elect Obamas, Rommeys, Clintons and Bushes as our leaders.

    One of the things that I see as the reason why we’re forced into electing the same type of candidate these days is the same thing that Glenn and Fox’s Judge Andrew Napolitano have said…it’s because we don’t have term limits for the cons in Congress. Not to mention, we changed from having he States select Senators. Both you can basically thank the progressives for.

    Think about it. Would Romney, Santorum, Paul, or even Newt be playing this game right now if term limits would have been enacted….or if the States were still allowed to select their Senators???

    Just something to ponder over as we continue to yell at the talking heads and idiots on the TV. And in government.
