How the hell did Santorum win 3 primaries? And what did California’s 9th circuit court have to do with it.

I know, he won three states that have nothing do with California.

However, 2 days ago the was a court decision was made by the California 9th Circuit Court that declared Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional.

I’m not writing this post to celebrate or nay-say that decision.

I’m writing it to draw attention to something that I’ve been speculating on since Tuesday night.

Despite his close race with Romney in Iowa at the end of last year, Santorum is not doing well in popular opinion. Though he has the second highest number of delegates already won. 72 to Romney’s 112, Gingrich’s 32, and Paul’s 9. (On a side note, who else is thinking that Paul and Gingrich need to bow out now?)

However, somehow he swung 3 states in a single night. Now, while I could simply assume that this means Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado are populated by functioning morons/lunatics…I think there might be another explanation.

The very same day this insanity happened, only hours earlier, the California 9th circuit court opened the door for same-sex marriage to once again begin in their state.

In a panicked state, fearing for the state of traditional marriage and “OH DEAR GOD, THINK OF THE CHILDREN”, the social conservatives (who may or may not be fiscal/constitutional conservatives) turned and ran to vote for the most socially conservative (and leastΒ  American) of the GOP candidates.

You know, lemmings do that same thing and they usually end up over the edge of a cliff.*
