If Santorum Beats Romney, Watch for GOP Establishment to Replace Him With Jeb Bush [UPDATED]

One "brave" anonymous U.S. Senator has already said it should happen:
Silly me; I thought that when one candidate in a primary race lost a state, it meant that another candidate was stronger. Not so, according to an unnamed but “prominent” Republican Senator contacted by ABC’s Jonathan Karl. If Romney can’t win, it’s time to call in … Jeb Bush?
“If Romney cannot win Michigan, we need a new candidate,” said the senator, who has not endorsed anyone and requested anonymity.

[...]

It would have to be somebody else, the senator said. Who? “Jeb Bush,” the former Florida governor.
The Secret Senator believes that Rick Santorum would lose 35 states in a general election, and apparently thinks so little of Newt Gingrich’s chances that he doesn’t even raise him as an alternative. No, it would be better to call the younger Bush and skip over the rest of the primaries, apparently, since it would be almost impossible at this point for a new candidate to qualify on enough ballots to win a majority of the delegates.

[...]

How about this for an idea: let’s hold a primary among those candidates who had the courage to put themselves on the line for almost a year, and stop worrying about those who sat on the sidelines. Stop looking for a Deus ex machina and start building the organization that will help whomever the voters choose as the nominee win the general election.

[More]
If the GOP tries this, it will forever sever ties with social conservatives and with grassroots GOP voters, and will consign itself to permanent minority status.


UPDATE
Yeah, what Patrick Archbold said: "I Hate Republicans"
... Dear Senator Jerk, I would rather go down with Santorum than win with your type. And if Santorum does lose, I hope to God that he takes you with him.

I hate Republicans.
My sentiments exactly.

As Paul Zummo pointed out, the Secret LindsayGrahamJohnMcCainJohnCornyn Senator can't do math, either. Which five solid Republican lock states would Santorum lose?
