Unfortunately, political campaigns are becoming easier and easier to predict even if the outcomes aren’t. However, there is plenty to differentiate the candidates. The problem is trying to figure out what the differences are. Perhaps the easier way is to differentiate candidates’ supporters instead. First up, Willard Mitt Romney’s Romneylans. Don’t worry Obamunists; you’ll have your chance in the fish barrel too.
AND THEN I TOLD MARIANNE… – “Darlin’, I got some serious junk here and there’s just too much of Newt to not share the wealth.”
Newt Gingrich has an ego as big as all outdoors, or at least a big as Donald Trump’s. He’s a historian with only a nodding acquaintance with text book history and his own self-professed place in it. The other thing Newt has is a propensity for pissing people off. People like voters and political allies in his own party. While this isn’t an altogether useless skill in an election, it isn’t so great when a President has to work with people rather than through them. If cockroaches will survive nuclear holocaust Newt will be right there tossing garbage to them.
Poll watchers are writing the obituary for Newt “I Got My Ass Kicked Over That Name A Lot When I Was a Kid” Gingrich. Pundits are screaming at each other with full-throated vigor and the public stands agog that none of the punditocrisy saw this coming.
