Succinctly Summing up the Santorum Surge

Dana Milbank:

The “Santorum surge” in recent days has little to do with the candidate himself and everything to do with the fact that he is the last man standing after voters discarded all the rest. There’s little time left to scrutinize Santorum before the Iowa vote — and in his case, that’s an exceedingly lucky thing.

This strikes me as quite correct.  It isn’t going to last.

    The headline has an awful lot of alliteration for attentive bloggers being busy with bulletins.

  2. Steven,

    That comment strikes me as spot on as well.
