Democrats Shouldn’t Wish For Santorum For President

File this one under “Be careful what you wish for”. If you’re a liberal, you look at all the batshit crazy things Santorum is saying and you silently wish for him to win the Republican nomination, because no one in their right mind would actually vote for this guy over Obama right? I mean, sure, the extreme right-wingers will vote for him but he has no chance in a general election against Obama, right? Don’t be so sure. I was the one that thought Stephen Harper wouldn’t get elected a second time. He did. Then I thought he wouldn’t get elected a third time. He did, with a majority this time. And Canadians are socialists compared to Americans. Yet we’ve had a conservative government here for much longer than I find acceptable.
I get the thinking behind it, I do. You think someone like Santorum is too far to the right to have a chance. That’s what every Democrat will think and they’ll stay home on voting day. And Santorum will win because if there’s anything batshit crazy people do, it’s vote. Then you can’t wake up from the nightmare that is President Santorum. Be careful what you wish for.
