Daily Kos is trying to get Left wing Democrats to vote in Republican Primary for Santorum

Would this get attention if Republicans were doing this to Democrats? From the Daily Kos:

It's time for us to take an active role in the GOP nomination process. That's right, it's time for those of us who live in open primary and caucus states—Michigan, North Dakota, Vermont and Tennessee in the next three weeks—to head out and cast a vote for Rick Santorum.
Why would we do such a crazy thing? Lots of great reasons! . . .

Several of the contests have produced razor-thin margins of victory. Rick Santorum won Iowa by 34 votes, Mitt Romney "won" Maine by 194 votes. It won't take many of us to swing contests the way we want them to swing. . . . .

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. . . .

Apparently, the media is doing its best also.

Chris Matthews: "Steve Schmidt, my friend, you talk to a lot of Republicans out there. Are they aware that the media is basically rooting for Santorum out of sheer fear of the ennui, the boredom that will set in if it looks like Romney locks this thing up? At the moment he locks this thing up we face a long, dull summer of Mitt Romney."

If memory serves, Rush Limbaugh attempted something similar four years ago. Not certain how much effect it had.

Given people's laziness, especially the laziness of those on The Left, I doubt this will have much impact. By the time this primary rolls around, i expect GOP turnout will be high, since it is now a real donnybrook.

But, I gotta say, it is pretty slimy practice in general.

If you have evidence of this claim, you should post it. Thanks.
