Every candidate (reportedly) endorsed by God has now lost to Mitt Romney. I believe this is the final nail in the coffin for celebrity endorsements for political candidates.
The end — sorry, um, suspension — of Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign is a major milestone in the primary race, clearing the way, as it does, for Mitt Romney to cruise here on out to the nomination essentially unchallenged. But Santorum’s withdrawal is also a major milestone for God, the beloved all-powerful deity whose personal endorsement somehow failed to secure the nomination for any of the numerous Republicans — Santorum, Herman Cain,Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry — whom he reportedly encouraged to run for president. It is unclear at this point whether God will even bother to offer anyone his apparently useless endorsement in the general election.
H-m-m-m-m-m — What was that about using the Lord’s (aka God) name in vain, now??? 🙂
