Santorum, Paul take the low road after Romney wins CPAC Straw poll and Maine caucus

You gotta bleed for Mitt Romney.

The guy has spent a fortune of time and treasure trying to be president and still is a magnet for abuse. He gets beaten up more often than the Washington Generals against the Harlem Globetrotters, more often than President Obama by devoted readers of the Zeke Blog.

Not only does he have the appeal of a 1970 Plymouth Duster, conservatives would rather lube jackhammers than vote for him.

Astonishingly, since there remains a flock of conservatives still in the race, Romney still could wind up being the Republican nominee.

But it’s been the Road to Hell on the way.

Take Saturday. Romney scored two minor but symbolically important victories — a first-place finish in the CPAC Straw poll and a win in the Maine caucus — each of which set off accusations of foul play from the second-place finisher.

When you’re a conservative and you just lost to a Mormon liberal like Romney, you gotta do something to save face. So crying cheating beats the hell out of hari kari.
In an appearance today on CNN, Santorum suggested that Romney had doctored the results of the CPAC contest. Being a sore loser isn’t righteous, Rick.
Ron (the best foreign policy is to ignore foreigners as if they were infidel Democrats) Paul sent an email Saturday night to supporters that essentially alleged collusion between the Romney campaign and the Maine Republican Party without actually mentioning Romney by name.
Classy, Ron.
