So, four days into 2012, we have our first election results: Romney 24.6%, Santorum, 24.5%, Paul 21.4%, Gingrich, 13.3%. I generally enjoy the electoral civic carnival, but like any carnival, it has a proper season. In 2008, I made a point of not paying attention to the various campaigns until after New Year’s Day. Before 2008, I didn’t need to make a point of not paying attention. Following my 2008 pattern this time, the show has started without me.
Specifically, I have no idea who Rick Santorum is. I couldn’t pulling him out of a police lineup. I think he is a Senator from Pennsylvania, but I may be thinking of someone else. If anyone wants to educate me go ahead. And if anyone has any hope to offer for elimating primary elections in January and February, please go ahead with that too.
