Don’t Quit Your Dayjob

A Dayjob is what Rick Santorum might need to keep his campaign afloat after raising a measly $582,000 in the second quarter.  Though liked by many religious conservatives, Santorum has failed to convince voters that his candidacy is a good investment.

Santorum might do better with a job in the private sector

Part of the reason Santorum has not been able to make a money making splash is through pure attrition.  When the 2012 primary roles around, it will mark six years since Santorum has held a significant share of the GOP spotlight.  And his last stage exit was not flattering.

In addition to his own campaign weakness, Santorum remains a second tier copy of other religious conservatives like Michelle Bachmann and Newt Gingrich.  He certainly has not been as exciting as either, which says a lot considering Newt himself has been more sizzle than flash.

Can Santorum make it back into the spotlight of this campaign?  My prediction is that it would take an act of sheer undeniable brilliance, utter stupidity, or an act of God to get Santorum back in the headlines.
