Republican Primary Results That Don’t Count For Anything From States Where Republicans Don’t Live, Vote Or Care
Whew! That title just rolls right off your tongue!
This post is all about numbers, but don’t let that scare you off. I hate those smug bastards, but sometimes, simply looking them over and seeing which ones are small and which ones are big can tell us a lot.
For example, Minnesota is 21st in population in the United States with a count of 5,303,925 in 2010. Colorado is 22nd with 5,029,196 and Missouri is 18th with 5,988,927. But apparently, either no Republicans live there, don’t vote, or they don’t show up for elections that don’t count for anything. Or they think the candidates suck.
That’s right, folks; apparently, the Republican Primaries in Colorado, Missouri and Minnesota not only had fairly low turnout, but they’re not awarding any delegates to the winner – so I guess all of this means nothing as the states have not awarded delegates to any of the candidates, meaning until they do, we don’t know who they’ll vote for at the Republican National Convention. Apparently, this is all tied to these states having their elections too soon, but what this means for awarding their delegates, I don’t know, and who cares? Nobody voted anyway. Here are the results:
The only thing that annoys me more than the Electoral College is the way we pick candidates. This is pathetic! In Colorado, a total of 66,027 showed up. In Minnesota, which we already noted has slightly more residents than Colorado, only 48,695 could muster up the courage to hit the polls and in Missouri, 251,868 got those classy “I voted!” stickers. Now that’s a lot more than Colorado or Minnesota, but as I always like to point out, Brooklyn has a population of 2,504,700, so I don’t see any of these guys doing very well in a race for Borough President.
Yet the most shocking thing of all is that Rick Santorum swept the day! And, when you google his name, spreadingsantorum.com is now downgraded to the 4th option in natural search results, so things are all coming up Rick!
So I guess Santorum is the latest flavor of the month in the “Anybody But Mitt Romney” parade and as Newt Gingrich didn’t finish any better than third in all three races, he is of course not dropping out. Why would he drop out now? He only failed to capture anything worth reporting in the state where the most people showed up to vote in an election where you essentially just had to show up and shake hands with the 12 people voting at each precinct…
Well, I guess it’s time for Mitt Romney to tear into Rick Santorum with a wave of negative ads from his Super PAC that he can’t control, so get ready, Maine – you’ve got some commercials coming your way concerning why a frothy mixture won’t make a good president.
