The Rick Santorum Smackdown

There are a couple of things we can take away from Rick Santorum's surprising hat trick in Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota yesterday:
  1. The Mainstream GOP (aka Democrat Right) is in serious trouble, as well they should be
  2. The shift away from Statism and liberal morality is in full swing
  3. The much maligned, late great Tea Party is still a force to reckon with no matter what the media says
  4. The Monolithic Media not only doesn't know what they're talking about they're clueless too
  5. Mitt Romney isn't connecting and the GOP base is unwilling to make the McCain '08/ Dole '96 mistake again just because the Establishment tells us it's Mitt's turn
  6.  The base is energized and they're ready to sustain the fight for the White House until November
  7. The Monolithic Media is not the political be all and end all they position themselves as
  8. The haters and attackers (on the Left and Right) now have a new target to spew their venom at
  9. If anyone tells you this is either a non-event bump in the road, or a major change of direction, they are lying -- things are far too dynamic in the GOP right now for anyone to venture any reasonable guess (that won't stop them from trying though)
  10. Remember, you heard it here first, no one has any clue what yesterday's results mean yet
I still have my problems with Santorum but you can't deny this is a fascinating turn of events. The Establishment GOP, the Democrats, and the Monolithic Media all are rooting for Romney for various reasons; I'm not exactly sure who is rooting for Newt anymore and we all know the far Right anti-big-government people (like me) who think the momentum of the government can turn on a dime (unlike me) are for Paul. It makes perfect sense that Santorum would yield majorities based on the flaws of the other three.

Don't let your Democrat friends and other assorted Leftists you cross paths with make you feel like all hope is lost for us non-Statist, anti-Nanny State types. We're watching the GOP school the Democrats on how a primary works. In 2008 the Establishment and leftist kook-fringe joined together to anoint Obama with nary a scratch on him after dispatching Hillary to Burma or Krygfrygamamastan or wherever she is right now. This time around the GOP base is looking at what is best for the country and the party before settling on our next inept president.
