At this point, by most accounts, Romney will secure the Republican nomination by continuing to win a plurality and occasional majority of votes in the remaining contents. Santorum, on the other hand, needs to win two-thirds and Gingrich nearly three-quarters of the remaining delegates.
MSM would have you believe that Saturday was Santorum’s day but a casual glance suggests otherwise with 80% of the contests going to Romney.
Limbaugh was inartful in calling Sandra Fluke a S-L-U-T. Whatever his other other shortcomings might be, I cannot comment on as I do not regularly listen to him. That said, it is clear that through and because of him, that Republicans–as portrayed by the media–are the target of venom from Democrats and the media.
Media reports go so far as to try and tar the Republican candidates with Limbaugh’s comments. I disagree about Romney, in particular, as I think he set a good neutral example in saying “not the language I would have used.” This is not his fight and not one he or other candidates need to get into at this point. Me thinks there is a vast left wing conspiracy at play to shift the abortion debate to contraceptives (recall the early question by George S to Romney, which Romney dismissed as ridiculous.) Now, everyone is making a big play to make this an issue.
