Don't Worry, Y'all, Newt Gingrich Has Got This

Posted by on Wed, Apr 11, 2012 at 4:20 PM

Sorry for the Fox News link, but I just have to:

Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that it's still possible for him to win the GOP presidential nomination...The former House speaker has not won delegates since March 13. But he said Wednesday that he will do better in upcoming contests now that Santorum is no longer running.
Gingrich vowed to campaign until the convention in Tampa, Fla., saying he wants to help the GOP reflect a "21st century conservatism."

At a campaign event scheduled between Jazzercize and bingo at a Newark, Del., senior center, Gingrich said he was taking voters' encouragement and donations as a sign of continued support for his campaign.

In other news, the Gingrich campaign bounced a $500 check in Utah. Newt Gingrich is positively goddamned delightful.

Republicans dont factor Drain Bamage. they will put a Eye ball attached to a foot in a political slot if it serves their needs.

But newt is a classic B grade horror movie and if you put him in clown makeup and give him a chain saw? that wiggly chin and belly and butt could be a cult classic.

Didn't Newt become speaker because of those evil Democrats bouncing checks back in the early 90's? The irony is so rich you can cut it with a knife

Actually, @5, I think the entire field has been remarkably representative of the fragmented and dysfunctional GOP. Santorum represents the racist, sexist, homophobic core; Romney the terminally-boring millionaires who want to line their own pockets and could honestly give two shits about the social issues, but are driven hard right by the necessity of co-opting the loons; and Ron Paul the conspiracy theorists and out-and-out lunatics. Gingrich is the image of the party rank and file, though, and that's exactly why he's doomed--no one likes looking in the mirror. But contrariwise, that's exactly why he can't throw in the towel. GOP dogma requires that when you are losing, you double-down, not retreat.

What perfect product placement for Newtie -- between Jazzercize and Bingo. Senior Center FTW!

I still think that the multi-married, fiscally irresponsible, uncompromisingly bigoted and seriously delusional Gingrich is the truest representative of the contemporary Republican party. If there was anything like justice in this process, he would have the nomination sewn up.

Paul, buddy, if you just want to call it for Romney and retire from following the tiresome Republican nomination process, I don't think anybody here is going to blame you.

Maybe if they uncover Romney's 3 other wives.

Otherwise. No.
