Santorum Primary Night Speech a Mea Culpa to Women?

Last night, in the Republican contest to be that party’s presidential nominee, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney looked relaxed as he addressed supporters in Michigan (one of his multiple home states; New Hampshire and Massachusetts most often cited as the others). He sounded it, too.

Then again, on Tuesday evening, Romney was in the needed winning position, having fought off a strong challenge in the aforementioned home state, from the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, whose post-primary speech (text and video of Santorum’s speech here) has been described by some observers as a bald-faced mea culpa to women.

  1. Yeah, the exit polling stats for Michigan were pretty interesting allright. The number of people under 45 who even bothered to vote was pretty shocking but I guess that’s (sadly) not atypical. I considered the possiblity of making mischief here but decided against it. The idea of giving Santorum a vote – even as part of a higher purpose was just too creepy.

  2. And oh yeah, the less educated voters were more likely to vote for the sweatervest guy. No surprise there.
