Newt Gingrich? Come on, Republicans. Newt’s an unbearably smug relic whose personal baggage should keep him out of the Oval Office. Ditching your cancer-stricken wife for a younger woman isn’t a youthful indiscretion — it’s the calling card of an a-hole.
There is an alternative but apparently he’s too reasonable. By that I mean he doesn’t hate gays, engage in conspiratorial nonsense about Obama, reject science or play to the dittoheads.
Nominate Jon Huntsman and independents will be yours. Or follow buffoons like Limbaugh down a path to irrelevance and certain defeat.
