• Liberals for Santorum!

    Nope, that headline's not a mistake. There is a movement afoot for Democrats to come out in support of Rick Santorum in the upcoming state primaries.

    Liberals, however, haven't suddenly bought into the extremist ideology of conservative fetus-lover Rick Santorum — they just want to screw with Republicans.┬áThe Daily Kos' Markos Moulitsas explains

    It's time for us to take an active role in the GOP nomination process. That's right, it's time for those of us who live in open primary and caucus states — Michigan, North Dakota, Vermont and Tennessee in the next three weeks — to head out and cast a vote for Rick Santorum…

    The longer this thing drags out, the more unpopular the Republican presidential pretenders become. Just look at Mitt Romney's trajectory, which followed Herman Cain's trajectory, and Newt Gingrich's trajectory, and Michelle Bachmann's trajectory, and so on.

    Rick Santorum will inevitably follow the same path once he gets properly vetted.

    Dubbed "Operation Hilarity," Kos' effort is similar to Rush Limbaugh's 2008 campaign to get Republicans to vote for Hillary Clinton to prolong the Democratic race. I don't know if meddling in such an important election is a good idea. If Moulitsas wants to watch a long "clown show," he should just tune into Fox & Friends.

    But imagine how funny it would be if Rick Santorum got so many votes he actually won the GOP primary and then, with the economy still suffering, actually beat Obama in the general election. Wouldn't that be hilarious? Oh man, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. No, wait. I'm just crying.
