Daily Kos To Make Mischief In Republican Primary
“Operation Hilarity” encourages Democrats to vote for Santorum in open primary and caucus states. It's what Limbaugh did for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas has launched a campaign to make life difficult for Mitt Romney, by encouraging Democrats to vote for Rick Santorum in open primary and caucus states.
Moulitsas argues that the longer the primary drags on, the better it's getting for Democrats — noting that Rick Santorum will inevitably follow the path of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich and see his poll numbers fall.
It's a no-brainer! The following states have completely open contests coming up:
2/28: Michigan (Primary)
3/6: North Dakota (caucus)
3/6: Tennessee (primary)
3/6: Vermont (primary)
If you live in one of those states, pledge to participate in Operation Hilarity by voting or caucusing for Rick Santorum.
Moulitsas is also raising money to place a Facebook ad to promote his campaign.
And in any case, it's freaking hilarious. I mean, Rick Santorum? Really? The Republicans have offered up this big, slow, juicy softball. Let's have fun whacking the heck out of it.
