Can this guy get any more idiotic and delusional?
From left-wing TPM:
Yes, the immediate implosion of Newt Gingrich's campaign is "historic", I've never seen a candidate declare and then self destruct so quickly. Will it be a Gingrich self-labeled "historic" moment when he garners single digits in Iowa?
Touring Waterloo, Iowa today, Newt Gingrich attributed part of the media frenzy surrounding his "challenging week" to his campaign's historic nature.
"It's going to take a while for the news media to realize that you're covering something that happens once or twice in a century, a genuine grass-roots campaign of very big ideas," Gingrich said, according to the Associated Press. "I expect it to take a while for it to sink in."
Did anyone here see/hear his appearance on Rush Limbaugh's show yesterday? Coincidentally calling in from Waterloo, Iowa (hah!), his appearance on the show was not pretty:
On Rush's show he talked too much, lied about what the controversy was about (no, I wasn't talking about Ryan's plan) and doesn't know when to just simply put a fork in it.
This whole spectacle is almost enough to make me feel sorry for the guy but it comes down to this: it's a good thing that we are weeding one of the many statist GOPers out of the race -- Newt Gingrich is no conservative and his personal baggage alone should disqualify him from serious consideration.
If you want a real hoot, read Alex Pareene at Salon, "How Gingrich can still win the GOP nomination — and the presidency" (it's obviously a satirical piece written by a libtard but showcases just how ludicrous things are in the GOP field).
