Another week….another loss for Rick Santorum

So when we last left our plucky stubborn psychopath last week he was desperately trying not to cross the mark of being over 300 delegates behind Romney. As always, he failed miserably.  But not for lack of trying.  After all he went down to Puerto Rico with that winning ‘You must speak English you filthy foreigners’ line.  Rick, you sweet talker.

Then he tries to tell all the press that Romney and his fancy “math” doesn’t work.  And that Rick Santorum and only Rick Santorum knows the real delegate count…does he have proof?  No.  He has faith, and that is all Rick needs…well that and a functioning cerebral cortex couldn’t hurt (but that might hurt chances for Santorum to continue running his little freak show).

So apparently from his concession speech, Rick Santorum made it clear that his campaign is and has always been about freedom.  The freedom to not be any religion other than Christian.  The freedom to pick and choose winners in the market.  The freedom to be told whom you can and can’t marry.  The freedom to be told what you can and can’t buy for…entertainment.  The freedom to choose to be in a union or be in a union.  The freedom to sell votes to the highest bidder.  The freedom to ignore basic arithmetic.  The freedom to ban contraceptives.  Freedom.  Rick Santorum truly has run a campaign about freedom.  I’m just not sure that Rick Santorum has ever opened a dictionary.

Meanwhile the rest of us know that Rick would probably create a government 10 times as intrusive as anything Obama has come up with if he could.  Isn’t that frightening?  I personally like the part in his speech where he talks about how the GOP nominee has to be someone who can appeal to all of America. Now, it is moments like that when you realize just how self-deluded and mentally unstable Santorum really is.

But it really doesn’t matter as Romney pulled out this week with 47 more delegates than Santorum did.

So Romney has a total of 558.   (Or just short of the 50% mark).

So let’s use some of the assumption we’ve been working with.

Romney will take winner-take-all states Maryland (37 delegates), D.C. (19), Delaware (17), California (172), New Jersey (50), and Utah (40).  That will bring Romney’s total to 893.  And if we assume he gets half of proportional states he will easily win: New York (95), Connecticut (28), Rhode Island (19), Oregon (28) and New Mexico (23) his total goes to 998.  He will probably win more than half, but let’s give Ricky the benefit of the doubt.  With 998 he only needs 146 delegates of the remaining 669…or 22%.  Fun Fact: Romney has been averaging 42% of delegates in proportional states…a mere 41% if you take out the outliers.  So let’s see, a man who is averaging 41%, has all the momentum, and isn’t a raving psychotic has to only get 21% of the vote.  In other words, Mitt Romney can phone in the rest of this primary and still win easily.  I will go as far as to make a prediction…Mitt Romney will enter the convention with over 1200 delegates.

But please Ricky, please continue in your delusional little world.  You know the world where people want to vote for you, which they don’t, and people can tolerate your existence, which we don’t.  Actually, on second thought, please crawl back under whatever deluded and disgusting hole you crawled out of and leave us alone.
