Bye Hater: Rick “Stinky” Santorum Drops Out 2012 GOP Presidental Campaign

You ain’t gotta go home but you gotta get the hell outta here!

In a surprise decision Tuesday, former Sen. Rick Santorum announced that he is suspending his presidential campaign, all but putting an end to the Republican primary:

“We made a decision to get into this race at our kitchen table, against all the odds, and we made a decision over the weekend that while this presidential race is over for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said during an address in Gettysburg, Pa.

During his 14-minute speech, Santorum notably did not endorse Mitt Romney.

The Pennsylvania Republican had taken a break from the campaign trail for several days to tend to his ailing daughter, Bella. He had pledged to continue campaigning through the upcoming Pennsylvania primary. But the combination of his daughter’s sickness and recent poll numbers showing him possibly losing his home state apparently prompted the early departure.

According to Yahoo! News, Santorum called Romney earlier in the day to inform him of his decision to suspend his campaign. The former senator also made a call to campaign operatives to relay his decision.

About damn time! Quitting just before his home state primary? Ole’ boy knew he didn’t have a snowballs chance in hell on competeing aganist Nasty Newt or Money Makin’ Mitt. Poor thang.
