From Monday’s New York Times:

Santorum Ignores Pressure to Bow Out to Romney

RACINE, Wis. — Mitt Romney remains his biggest foe, but Rick Santorum is increasingly confronting an even more daunting obstacle: a rising chorus of Republicans calling for the divisive presidential contest to end so the party can turn its full attention to defeating President Obama.

The piece details the various GOPniks trying to nudge Santorum out of the race, including this lot:

A series of high-profile Republicans, including former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, have urged Republicans to start uniting behind Mr. Romney. The sentiment continued Sunday, with former Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi saying the Republican race would soon wind down. “Unless Romney steps on a land mine, it looks like he will be the nominee,” he said.

Really, Haley?

Did it ever occur to you that real people (as opposed to Mitt Romney) are stepping on land mines all over the Middle East? Or that land mines might be off-limits for offhanded comments?

Not to mention, aren’t there still some murderers in Mississippi you’ve yet to illegally pardon?

  1. The only land mines for Haley Barbour are jalapeno poppers.
