Game Over for Santorum

At Gettysburg, PA (of all places!) Rick Santorum announced today that he’s throwing in the towel on his bid to become the Theocrat in Chief of the United States.

No surprise really, considering that in all probability he would otherwise have lost the primary later this month in his home state. Not only would that have been a crushing blow, but also a bitter personal reminder of the defeat that saw him ousted from the Senate in 2006. Better to end his improbable yet relatively successful campaign on a positive note rather than waging an ugly and futile campaign against Mitt Romney’s vastly better-financed attack machine.

Viewing his emotionally touching concession speech it’s not hard to see why so many people were attracted to Santorum – he comes across as warm, genuinely compassionate and, as pols say, “relatable”… What a tragic shame for Republicans that Willard Romney has absolutely none of those qualities to his credit.

  4. rp.. jeeshh.. he looks like some creepy old uncle that gives your sister uncomfortably long hugs.

    Sort of a different war on women.

    That said.. give me one of those campaign buttons.

  5. Anna Sui may be a true original. I love her pattern aesthetic in clothes and makeup; one part glam, one part bohemian, one part whimsical with a pinch of Victorian. Sounds a little wacky but it works and works magnificently. In the interest associated with full disclosure I admit i am a packaging whore. I LOVE pretty items and Anna does very. Her ornate designs leeway compacts, nail polishes and lipstick tubes alike. Just take a examine this absolutely darling claw polish

    Anna Sui is the original mix master which season is no exclusion. In Sui’s world tribal accommodates wood nymph and very little girl meets rich hippie. How does she allow it to be work on the runway? Mix one part printing bamboo with one section faux shearling vest, throw in a little folk embroidery and a spray of sequins. Voila! Pure Anna Sui style. Our top picks for fall include the raccoon fur collar (immediate glam), jacquard knit cardi (great for layering) and plaid and houndstooth skirt (works day to night).
