    “Gingrich finds traction” – and here I didn’t even know he had back trouble.

    Dang, and I was enjoying Prime Suspect

    Watching the Gingrich thing, I’m reminded of how much most people don’t follow politics very closely.  2 years ago is a long time, never mind 16 years ago.

    I’m reminded of the Manhattan socialite who couldn’t understand how Nixon could have possibly won, when she didn’t know anyone who had voted for him.

    I want to believe, Newt. I really do. It’s seeing you with Nancy, working with Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac… You sound so good. You understand how to bring the fight to the bastards in the media and the left. And that’s what we love about you. If you just hadn’t lost your way.

    Maybe if we could get Newt to be Cain’s coach. Teach him how to eviscerate the left. Teach him how govt. works, show him where Libya is on a map…
