Red state blues
February 26, 2012 - Harry Eagar
A couple of Tuesdays ago, I went to bed feeling sad. The most enjoyable electoral campaign since 1968 was coming to a close with the clinching victory of Romney. True, we'd still savor one last joke, seeing a serial defaulter lope to the nomination of the party that prides itself on its fiscal rectitude.
But all the delightful jiggery-pokery, inane statements and goofy claims of Cain, Paul, Perry, Noot -- we'd not be hearing any more from them.
Wednesday was the second coming of nonsense, like being given a lifetime pass to the funhouse. Noot scooped Mitt in S.C., then was savaged by the machine in Florida. But did that end it?
It did not. Instead of a Romney cakewalk, the GOP threw up Santorum, who has a claim to being the most amusing Republican contender of them all. Each time I start to post my appreciation for Santorum's latest insane campaign remark, he tops himself before I can get to it. But I think I'm safe in stopping a moment to savor his charge that Obama wants Americans to go to college so they can be robbed of their faith.
Don't believe any of that cant about employers wanting well-prepared job candidates. That's just a smokescreen.
