dahmers love zombie: CanisNoir: Umm, he's not dropping out of the race.

I believe subby's meaning was that, as the article indicates, Gingrich knows he can't win, so at this point he's not running for president, he's running to destroy Mitt Romney.


It's always been my theory that John McCain woke up one day and realized that he had no chance to win the presidential race,, and that the reason he had no chance was because of how badly George the Younger had farked up HIS presidency, a presidency that should have been McCain's, WOULD have been his except for the fact that there were NO depths to which Karl Rove would not sink, and convinced SC voters that his Adopted kid was a secret love child from an affair with his (non-existent) black maid.

In that moment, McCain's famous temper got the better of him, and he decided that if he couldn't be president at least he could make the people, hell the PARTY, that had done him so wrong, he could make them suffer, make them bleed.

and with a cold fire burning in his stomach he picked up a phone, dialed his campaign manager and said "Yeah, I've decided, lets go with Palin"

When you ask yourself why Newt is going on the attack, it's really just a matter of the scorpion and the frog- that is who Newt is. His modus operandi is to just attack, attack, attack, wreak as much destruction as possible, and hope he comes out on top. Just ask Bob Michel. And as you saw when a lot of former House members came forward and cautioned about Gingrich, this is not unknown. He thrives in chaos, in large part because he lives for it, but also because his stream of unmitigated bullshiat is held to less scrutiny while everyone is diverted by the blood and guts.

yep, you'd have to be pretty high on crack right now to be saying "Newt still has a good chance to pull off the nomination", unless your bar for "good" rolls around on the floor.

RexTalionis: Gingrich doesn't have the money and organization to answer Romney's and Paul's negative ads. Gingrich doesn't have the money and organization to get himself on Virginia's ballot to get the 45 delegates (which he really needs). He has no organization in New Hampshire (unlike Mitt Romney) or, for that matter, most of the early primary states.


I don't think anyone but Romney and possibly Paul got on the VA ballot, but you're right, Gingrichs biggest problem is money, but that's why he's suggesting a Santorum alliance and hoping the media will give him some free publicity via attacking Romney loudly. Gingrich has an uphill battle, to be sure, but it's by no means in the bag for Romney imho.

He is so very proud of his title as a historian yet he has never learned a farking thing from his own history. This is just so...delicious.
