Dear Michigan Democrats... Vote Santorum!



It's no secret that most Democratic strategists consider Mitt Romney the GOP contender who poses the biggest threat to President Obama. It's also no secret that Michigan, the state where Romney grew up, is a must win for him.

Combine those two dynamics, add in the fact that any registered voter is allowed to vote in Michigan's open primary, and you get a recipe for Democrats to make mischief.

Then let there be mischief. Because it's not just Democrats, it's Santorum himself urging Democrats to vote for him.

It's possible, and perhaps even probable, that most of these Democrats propping up Santorum won't actually come out to vote for him (leaving Romney with a narrow win). But they should. It's a ridiculous system, to be sure, particularly with these open primaries, but there's no reason not to take advantage of it.

As crazy as Santorum is, he's an easy choice for Democrats at this point, not least because he's making life miserable for Romney. And also because he's helping tear the Republican Party apart.
