What Political Cartoonists Thought of Santorum

After much hand-wringing among Republicans anxious to end their primary blood bath, presidential candidate Rick Santorum has finally decided to suspend his campaign. Facing a potentially embarrassing loss in his home state of Pennsylvania, Santorum getting out of the race now makes a clear path for Mitt Romney to become the party’s nominee, bounced checks from Newt Gingrich not withstanding.

This has been an exciting race, and much like the Hillary/Obama primary back in 2008, cartoonists weighed in with an onslaught of terrific cartoons. You can view our complete collection of Rick Santorum cartoons here, but here are a handful I thought were cool…

The democrats and the news media want the so-called conservative Romney to be the Repubican nominee. The Kenyan-born, muslim communist Odumbo will be re-elected: mostly by lazy "occupiers" who want more free stuff. Odumbo had a Kenyan birth certificate long before he had one from Hawaii. There was also a news clip of a Kenyan man saying that he remembered the day Odumbo was born; but it has been "lost".It toook three years to destroy any Kenyan evidence and buy off any witnesses before he released his birth certificate. . For those who say he is not a muslim; actions speak louder than words. Ditto for communism.

You're a looney. Please work hard to get Texas to cecede from the union, I don't want to be associated with Texas anymore.

We have not heard for you in quite a long time, and the respite was refreshing. However I see that you are still as either stupid or mentally deranged as you were in the past. One would hope on a Darwinian basis that you have never reproduced.

Please see reply to aljonandjosmom. I am glad you missed me. We are working 7 days a week and I don't have much time for liberal parrot-talk. My kids are college educated and they work….unlike most of the dumbocrat party.
