Hide Your Porn! Rick Santorum's Coming to New York. Newt Gingrich, Too

Wannabe presidential candidate Rick Santorum -- who the Washington Post has decided is edging "towards the embarrassment zone" -- apparently still thinks he can win the GOP presidential primary -- which is adorable. Sadly, that means he'll soon start campaigning in New York, where 95 delegates are at stake when New Yorkers head to the polls in the April 24 primary.

One of the stops on Santorum's quest to woo New York Republicans will be the New York Republican Party's Annual Dinner on April 19, just five days before the primary -- where he'll likely steal some of the thunder of the Dinner's keynote speaker, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (see our post on Jindal here).

"With 95 delegates at stake, New York will play a decisive role in this year's Republican
Presidential nominating contest," New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox says. "We are pleased that Senator Santorum and Speaker Gingrich have agreed to be special guests at our annual dinner."

Oh, yeah... former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who simply refuses to throw in the towel until former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the front-runner in the race, offers him the job as his vice presidential running mate reaches 1,114 delegates (the number needed to clinch the nomination).

As our colleague Victoria Bekiempis explained earlier, Santorum has no fucking chance at winning the New York primary trails Romney nearly 2-1 in the Empire State, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released this morning.

The GOP's Annual Dinner will be held on April 19 at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in New York City.
