The liberal blogosphere has launched “Operation Hilarity.” It’s their version of Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos” from 2008. They plan to vote for Rick Santorum in the upcoming open primaries and caucuses to bleed cash and momentum from Mitt Romney’s campaign. The Left is much more confident that it can beat Santorum in November than Romney. Markos Moulitsas writes:
And if you’re squeamish about this, just remember what’s at stake—not just the White House, but Nancy Pelosi’s gavel and a Senate run by Mitch McConnell. The weaker the GOP standard bearer, the better our chances in November.
And in any case, it’s freaking hilarious. I mean, Rick Santorum? Really? The Republicans have offered up this big, slow, juicy softball. Let’s have fun whacking the heck out of it.
