• Rick Santorum Backs Mitt Romney in Rambling Email

    Rick SantorumAfter bowing to the reality of delegate math, Rick Santorum withdrew from the Republican primary race, marking the first time the father of seven has ever pulled out or acknowledged reality. Following his decision to spend more time with the imaginary Obamacare demons beneath his bed, a Santorum endorsement of presumptive nominee Mitt Romney was only a matter of perfecting the timing and venue.

    What better way to demonstrate enthusiasm for the party's standard bearer than an email to supporters? Sent at eleven at night. Apparently, after a quiet dinner of Xanax and wine…

    On Friday, Governor Romney came to Pittsburgh for an over-hour long one-on-one meeting…While the issue of my endorsement did not come up, I certainly have heard from many of you who have weighed in on whether or not I should issue a formal endorsement.

    No endorsement yet, but it's coming!

    Of course we talked about what it would take to win this election. As you know I started almost every speech with the phrase that this was the most important election since the election of 1860 and four more years of President Obama is simply not an option.

    That Rick Santorum was running for president of 1864 explains much about the last few months of campaigning, but nine paragraphs in, we're no closer to an actual endorsement…

    Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.

    There it is, lucky paragraph thirteen. Howard Kurtz notes that endorsement via email is just a step above breaking up with someone by text message, but I thought the email was warm and comfortable, even as it was incomplete and left Santorum mostly unbound. Think of it as the sweater vest of endorsements.
