The Inevitable Romney

Michael Brendan Dougherty spoils all the fun by pointing out in plain English that whether we like it or not, Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP nominee. Excerpt:

Mitt Romney has won almost 1.2 million more votes than Rick Santorum overall. How much did Rick Santorum gain on him last night?

39,119 votes. 

So in Rick Santorum’s “big wins” he erased approximately 1.35 percent of Romney’s lead in votes. That’s it. And remember, four years ago Mike Huckabee won these state primaries, but no one for a second believed that he had a chance of taking the nomination away from John McCain.

Boo, Michael Brendan Dougherty! Stop making sense!
