Politics Looks Like I Won’t Have Rick Santorum to Kick Around for Much Longer

Bob Casey has doubled his lead over Sen. Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania.
Even better, the money the Rs in PA spent trying to get a motherfuckinglyingpieceofshit Green Party candidate on the ballot was apparently wasted.
On Monday, a state judge said Green Party candidate Carl Romanelli would be removed from the ballot because the party did not have enough valid signatures in its nominating petitions—a move pundits said would help Casey.
MSNBC is to polite to mention the fact that Romanelli’s campaign and his signature gathering efforts were entirely funded by supporters of Rick Santorum. The Green Party in PA was allowing itself to be used in an effort to make sure Rick Santorum returned to the Senate next year, and to keep the Senate in Republican hands. Remember that the next time some asshole tries to talk you into voting for a Green Party candidate.
The Green Party—its voters, its candidates—are tools and fools for the right.
