Santorum drops out!

 

Suddenly possessed of a profound grasp of the obvious, Rick Santorum is ready to acknowledge that he can’t win the Republican presidential nomination and is DROPPING OUT of the race.

UPDATE: Of course, this doesn’t mean we’ve heard the last of this guy. We can expect the Obama campaign to frequently trot out the Rickster’s nasty comments about Mitt Romney.

UPDATE II: Speaking of Romney, Santorum conspicously failed to even mention his name in his speech this afternoon. Hmmm.

UPDATE III: Ed Kilgore’s post-mortem on the Santorum campaign is a WORTHY ONE:

There will be some what-ifs expressed about Santorum, particularly from those who think he self-destructed by getting a little too theocratic. I’m personally already on record as disagreeing. He danced with the ones that brung him: the people who think legalized abortion is a Holocaust, that same-sex relationships are a sign of moral collapse, that “traditionalist” Catholics and evangelical conservatives represent the only line of resistance against a Satanic takeover of the West, that a Middle Eastern Holy War is America’s destiny. It was enough to make him the winner of the much-contested subprimary to become the Conservative Alternative To Mitt Romney, but not enough to give someone with his many limitations the nomination.

    His daughter is came home from the hospital yesterday. While I wish her well, I don’t buy that she had much to do with his leaving the race. The fact that he’d have needed 80% of the vote in the remaining primaries to get the nomination was clear enough that even he could accept it. However, would YOU want to admit that you lost to Rawmoney?
