Rick Santorum & Rick Perry: A Tale of Two Also-Rans

Alas, it was not to be.
Sad, sad news today for anyone looking to take America back to the 1920s: Rick Santorum is dropping out of his heroic presidential run.

Sure, Mitt Romney has taken enough war-on-woman wingnut stands to carry the banner, but has he ever gone to such Santorum lengths as to declare all contraception is bad?

Santorum's daughter is ill and that played a part in the decision, but the writing was on the wall. Santorum joins Rick Perry as solid proof that the GOP doesn't want to nominate anyone named Rick. Both Ricks ran impressive campaigns that drew a lot of attention, albeit for all the wrong reasons. Let's examine five aspects:

5. Best quote
Santorum:
"Isn't that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?"
Perry: "Oops."

4. Best rumor
Santorum:
That he was doing the bidding of Opus Dei.
Perry: That he was on painkillers for much of the campaign.

3. Sartorial mistake
Santorum:
Sweater vests, and plenty of them.
Perry:

2. Quit before being embarrassed in home state?
Santorum:
Yes.
Perry: Yes.

1. Likely to ever be considered as presidential timber again?
Santorum:
Ha.
Perry: ROFLMAO.
