• Rick Santorum Is "Open" to Idea of Maybe Running Again in 2016

    Hey look, guys. I know it seems like a real long shot, but we can't give up hope. There's still a small but slight chance that Rick Santorum might maybe possibly perchance consider running for president again in four years.

    Which is to say he's definitely doing it

    "I'm open to it, yeah," Santorum replied. "I think there's a fight right now as to what the soul of the Republican party's going to be and the conservative movement, and we have something to say about that. I think from our battle, we're not going to leave the field."

    In 2012, Santorum won nearly 4 million votes and 11 GOP primary contests — the same number of states, he pointed out, Ronald Reagan won in his failed 1976 presidential bid.

    You know, I was gonna say, that guy really loses like Reagan. There's something so Reagan-esque in the way he fails to get things that he desperately wants. There's a certain Gipper-ishness in how he sets out goals and then comes up short of achieving them.

    Oh yeah, I see it. This guy is going places.
