Santorum Floods Kansas

Posted by on Sat, Mar 10, 2012 at 12:30 PM

To say Rick Santorum is winning the Kansas caucuses with a comfortable margin would be putting it mildly. Right now, with a little over sixty percent of the numbers in, he's got 7,692 votes (53% of the total) to Mitt Romney's 2,460 (16.8%). If Romney stays below 20%, Santorum will pick up all of Kansas's 40 delegates. Watch the rest of the tallies come in at the Huffington Post.

Looks like Nate Silver's "Santorum Belt" observation is holding up. There is a frothy brown streak right down the center of this country of ours.

You gotta love the headline from the NY Daily News:

Santorum wins Kansas caucus; Romney picks up wins in Guam, Virgin Islands


It might as well say "Santorum wins Heartland, Romney wins among strange foreign people"

Confidential to our nation's midsection: maybe your friends are too polite to tell you, but it's time you started using disposable briefs.

Gross. This is why some of us stay on the coasts.

However if Santorum wins Mississippi and Alabama, he'll have a cute little pair of short shorts.

Personally I think we should embargo everything west of the Rockies.

I think it's cute how social conservatives (evangelicals) think they can win a national party nomination race without coastal states (except Alaska, South Carolina and Georgia). If Santorum is okay with the US selling Hawaii and all coastal states to Canada I'm okay with him being President of Flyoverland.

@6 - I'm not comfortable being responsible for that much of Utah.

I, for one, would be much more comfortable being Canadian.

“We are very pleased to see the Santorum surge sweeping through the Jayhawk State,” Santorum’s communications director, Hogan Gidley, said in a statement.

Everybody's getting in on the joke!

And . . . and everything became intensely malodorous, and a voice spoke from the cloud and said, "And your little dog, too!"

Ok, so we've learned about the correlation between IQ and political leanings http://pss.sagepub.com/content/early/201…

Has anyone done a study on education levels and political leanings? How low is Kansas on National educational achievement?
