Tim Pawlenty quit too soon. Michele Bachmann got bigfooted by Rick Perry. Rick Perry is too dumb to be president. Jon Huntsman believes in science. Rick Santorum? Please. Ron Paul is Ron Paul. Herman “The Ladies’ Man” Cain is going back to the missus.
It’s time to start thinking the unthinkable: Newt Gingrich might be the Republican nominee in 2012.
Among conservatives, Mitt Romney is about as popular as chlamydia, while Gingrich is getting a serious second look. Right-wingers don’t entirely trust Newt, but they like his moxie and his thermonuclear rhetoric. (Anger is the preferred emotional state of the species wingnuttius americanus.)
With Gingrich breathing down his neck, Romney’s flip-flopping has gone into overdrive. See if you can grasp his immigration policy in this interview. Even Bret Baier seems embarrassed for him.
Newt Gingrich is the the last non-Romney standing. Get the popcorn ready!
