Michael Moore For Santorum? How to Tell If Democrats Are Voting Republican

Earlier today, Michael Moore boasted that all of his friends were planning on voting for Rick Santorum in Operation Hilarity.

“I have to tell you a lot of my Democratic friends will vote for Santorum in something they are calling Operation Hilarity,” Michael Moore told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow earlier today. Operation Hilarity is, according to the Daily Kos,  “an opportunity for Democrats to actually help prolong this election a little bit longer because we’ve seen that the longer this drags out, the worse it is for Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum and the best it is for Barack Obama.”

So how can we tell if Michael Moore is full of hot air? We must look to the counties that were overwhelmingly Democratic in 2008. Look to Wayne. Wayne County is the home of urban Detroit, the sort of place that went 76% for Barack Obama in 2008.


If Santorum is level pegging with Mitt Romney in Wayne, it will likely be a very painful evening for Romney, who, for the first time this evening conceded to The National Journal that he might well lose his home state.

“I think the hardest thing about predicting what’s going to happen today is whether Senator Santorum’s effort to call Democrat households and tell them to come out and vote against Mitt Romney is going to be successful or not. I think Republicans have to recognize there’s a real effort to kidnap our primary process. And if we want Republicans to nominate the Republican who takes on Barack Obama, I need Republicans to get out and vote and say no to the dirty tricks of a desperate campaign.”

We already know that the Democratic Party’s press office the mainstream media has been picking our candidates. Who could blame the rank-and-file Democrats for wanting to get in on the action?

But the Democratic Party might rue the day that they cast a ballot for Rick Santorum. Once they vote Republican, they’ll be subject to all sorts of mailers and phone calls from SuperPacs and Republican interest groups, and as Jim Geraghty notes at National Review’s Campaign Spot, some of these messages might well take hold.
