Rick Santorum won the Louisiana primary over the weekend with 49% of the vote. Even with this win Romney’s delegates continue to add to his total. Santorum is telling his supporters not to worry. Romney’s lead is a bunch of fuzzy math:

“There’s a lot of bad math there that doesn’t reflect the reality of what’s going on on the ground. And so I think we’re in much, much better shape than what the numbers that are out there suggest,” Santorum said in an interview.

In other news, Obamacare finally has its day in court.

    Rick is absolutely correct on this point.  Until the delegates are truly elected, the counts are  nothing but fantasy math.

    After years in Congress, Santorum should be an expert at fuzzy math.  For him, there is no such thing as zero based budgeting or spending less than you take in.  Because when the Government makes the numbers, they can arrange the assumptions to make anything ugly smell rosy.

    Former Senator Santorum said today he’d consider being Romney’s running mate. What a laughable notion.

      Almost as laughable a notion as the thought of Governor Romney ever considering Santorum to be his running mate.

      Mr. Rick is seeing the writing on the wall that Romney will be the nominee! But, this is so – as you say – laughable, as I can never take Santorum seriously!

      As laughable as Romney denying that he flip-flops on issues just to get elected.

    WaPo is running a poll as to whether or not Obamacare is constitutional.
    The “No” vote is crushing the “Yes” vote 96% to 4%. Signup, vote, and toss out some marvelous Obamacare one-liners at:

      I bet you are fully aware that most of the participents are not exactly experts in constitutional law, are you? Most probably they just express whether or not they like the law, I guess.

      Also, as this is not a random sample the validity is the same as those of the online straw polls Ron Paul regularily wins convincingly. The last Rasmussen-poll published on RCP at least has 39%, who oppose to repeal the act (and to be fair 56% who favour to repeal it).

        Really? I was hoping to see a few signatories say “Justice John Roberts” or “William Rehnquist” on the tag line. :-)

        But this is exactly the point of a democratically elected republic, my uber-euro dude across the pond. Everyone can chime in with an opinion. We don’t leave matters like this “to the experts” while we all tune in to the latest Miley Cyrus video or Kardashian TV show. We should have a voice, regardless of how elite or not it may be.

        And yes, I know the general numbers on for-against Obamacare. But what I read from the early results is that people who are for it are not actively caring about it, or are reluctant to tangle with those who are against it. The against crowd is “fired up and ready to go”, to borrow a phrase from the last election. The for crowd is either scared or reluctant to say so.

          Oh Eddio, that is pathetic – and you know it. And then you don’t hesitate to make an US-Euro-distiction-issue of it – pathetic as well.

          Eddie, you exactly know, that matters of law are quite a bit complicated and indeed demand some expertize. If the question is, whether or not you like the Affordable Care Act, you are right, everybade may and should have an oppinion and may participate in polls and surveys. If the question is (quite dull from the WP btw.), if the Affordable Care Act is constitutionalm thing is pretty different. 

          Oh yes, and then this expert- and elite-thing … Eddie, hope you never need it, but if you have to have a brain-surgery I strongly recommend you to let it be done by a brain-surgery-specialist, even if he is an expert and probably even belongs to the elite.

            Me thinks you misread my humor as being serious. I was actually being playful; a good mood on a Monday can be a rare thing.
            No intent to denigrate today, although I can never miss a moment to poke fun at the Euro-clan when possible… :)

              Eddie, you have to consider that I am German. And we Germans neither use nor detect humor, particularily, if you hide it so perfectly.
