Santorum’s beauty pageant sweep was fun and everything, but Romney is still inevitable. The key point is the first one — Romney’s massive edge in resources didn’t come into play yesterday because he didn’t attempt to swamp Santorum in these states the way he successfully buried Gingrich in Florida. Which makes sense, since no delegates were actually at stake and Romney will get them anyway if he crushes the opposition in March. Once we get to contests that actually award delegates again, Santorum is doomed. If there was a parity of resources, the race would be genuinely unpredictable — but there isn’t.
