If Republicans will change the rules
post-election to give Romney more delegates, why not quit the whole charade and just anoint him?
The Mitt Romney-Rick Santorum Michigan primary results just got a little more contentious.
Michigan’s two at-large delegates to the Republican National convention will be awarded to Michigan native Mitt Romney, following a vote last night by the state party’s credentials’ committee.
The vote came despite the party’s rules that the two at-large delegates are supposed to be awarded on a proportional basis based on the statewide popular vote. Romney won the statewide vote by a 41% to 38% margin over former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
You know that the GOP primary has gotten extra hilarious when establishment Republicans have to start stealing delegates for their preferred candidate.
Or, as Romney's campaign put it yesterday, "give back" the delegates they don't think Santorum should have.
