Inspired by Mitt Romney’s narrow wins over Rick Santorum in Michigan and Ohio.
With his verbal digressions, he didn’t help himself,
But Rick Santorum unfortunately can’t help himself.
If he’d stuck to his working class message and grandfather’s hands,
Instead, Santorum lost all control
When running for office, the greatest sin
Is to forget about message discipline
(Especially when margins are razor-thin).
In Michigan and Ohio, that discipline was completely forgotten,
Severely restricting the number of votes and delegates gotten.
(Of course it also wasn’t so great
That Rick didn’t file a full delegate slate.)
