Rick Santorum, GOP candidate for President of the United States, has announced that he will “suspend” his campaign. Don’t ask me what the hell “suspend” means, but generally no one “unsuspends” a Presidential campaign when they’re getting trounced in the polls.

The decision comes two weeks before the Pennsylvania presidential primary. Santorum had faced the prospect of an embarrassing loss to Romney that threatened to short-circuit any of his future political aspirations, either statewide or nationally.

As my friend Michael Rowe said, “Ding-dong, the witch is dead.” Although, it would have been nice to see him lose in Pennsylvania like he did when he got kicked out of the Senate with an 18 point loss.

But hey, there’s always SpreadingSantorum to keep us entertained in the meantime.
