COMMENTS OF THE DAY: Tonite we’re gonna party like it’s 1574! Oh wait, not anymore…

The Republican primary took an unexpected turn today, as second-place Rick Santorum announced that he was dropping out of the race.  ‘Twas a sad day for some…

 

…including American sweater-vest makers:

 

Alas, Mitt “Etch-a-Sketch” Romney may now have a tough time convincing voters that he isn’t as right-wing as he appeared to be during the primaries.  Unless, of course, he can count on the Etch-a-Sketchy minds of the American electorate:

 

Mitt Romney… You do not have what it takes to be Inkmaster!  (OK, so I have no clue what catchphrase they use on America’s Got Talent…)

Dirty tricks!? Robocalls!? Gee, where I have I seen this before?

One common complaint about the Conservatives’ robocalling campaign is that they’re borrowing tactics from the Republican Party.  A quick look at this Guardian article about the Republican primary in Michigan would appear to validate this concern.  Here are a few choice snippets for your perusal:

“Romney used a rare press conference to take a swipe at Santorum, describing him as ‘desperate’ for resorting to what he called dirty tricks in the Michigan primary, where voters are flooding to the polls on Tuesday.”

“Santorum, in an effort to bridge the gap with Romney, has resorted to robocalls pleading with Democrats to come out to vote against Romney because he had opposed Barack Obama’s 2008 bailout of the car industry on which Michigan depends.”

“If Romney was to lose Michigan, the robocalls offer him an opportunity to claim he won among Republicans but lost because of mischief by Democrats, encouraged by Santorum.”

All that’s missing is a reference to Nixon, eh Bob Rae?
