The possibility of Christian conservatives "coalescing" (a word I read an awful lot last night) behind Rick Santorum sent me to bed genuinely frightened about this election for the first time. In the (grey, cool) light of day, though, I don't think he amounts to a great deal. He's another not-Romney having a momentary peak, and just happened to get lucky with the timing. Think of it as an unusual winning streak in the first week of the playoffs. He doesn't have a national organization, and I think most people really don't know (yet!) just how much of a warmongering theocrat he really is. I stand by my prediction that it's going to be Romney. Romney:2012::Kerry:2004. I'd say the real winner last night was Barack Obama.
