Santorum Breaks Conservative Hearts, Says He Will "Absolutely Not" Run For President In 2008

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), fresh from being walloped by Democrat Bob Casey Jr. this month, may have a better sense of reality.

He's not popular. At least not anymore, with the exception of the conservative radio ranters, conservative pundita the fringe right audience/bloggers who hang on their every word.

So it shouldn't be much of a surprise -- except to the aforementioned conservatives -- that Santorum has no plans to run for president in 2008.

"Absolutely, positively not. Absolutely not," Santorum said Thursday on The Michael Smerconish Show on Philadelphia's WPHT-AM. "My wife would throw me out of the house if I do anything in '08."

And you all thought he was irretrievably stupid

But apparently an electoral two-by-four metaphorically laid between his eyes actually got Sick Rick's attention.

It's just a shame that the two by four was metaphorical.

We should push a third party Santorum run. How about it Ricky?

That's really too bad
I'd donate to that nutjobs campaign. I'd love to see this asshat try a run for President, we could run anyone short of a convicted child molestor (I think most of them are repukes anyway) and beat Santorum.

Draft him!
This nation would benefit from a Santorum - Kathleen Harris ticket in '08.

Not to fear though! We still have Gay hater Mitt Romney and Anti-Choice woman hater, John McCain to run against! Don't forget about Duncan Hunter too! They have NO decent candidates this time around. NONE. How about Cat Killer Bill Frist who just happened to forget to take his continuing education classes to retain his medical license, but "fixed it" after the fact??

First Norm Coleman elects not to run, now Santorum. Sigh.

I certainly hope Kay Bailey Hutchison doesn't back out. Republicans may have to go with Tom Tancredo or Alan Keyes.

Just Think of All the 'Little Ricky' Video That Will Remain in the Vault

... there is no end to the amount of Santorum idiocy captured on videotape that could and would have run if 'Little Ricky' had been the Republican nominee for President.

It is a shame really. Dems would have been assured of the Presidency if 'Little Ricky' had been the Republican nominee.

I guess he and Frist can have a pity party as they ponder what might have been, at least in their own minds!

I wonder if Santorum is going to remain living in Virginia or if he is going to move his family back to Pennsylvania? I hope he stays in Virginia.
