Item: Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign staff walks out en masse.
Wait — were we operating from the premise that Newt was still running for president?
Gingrich for President 2012 is like the Book of Job, if Job had really, really deserved all of that stuff.
Gingrich’s aides are only leaving him because they love America so much
To understand why Newt Gingrich’s staff quit “en masse,” you have to understand Kenyan anti-colonial behavior.
At least Newt wasn’t being treated for cancer when this happened.
And sometimes you need more than 140 characters to sum up. Steve Benen:
Gingrich boasted that presidential campaigns as extraordinary as his are only seen “once or twice in a century,” and the brilliance of his campaign strategy would only be apparent in time.
At the time, we had no idea how true this was.
Of course, regular readers know the position of this blog: Like our good friend Tom P. Baxter, Newt is a total fraud, always was, always will be.
My guess? He’ll be re-admitted to the club and resume being a Respected Conservative Sage within, oh, two weeks of whenever he admits that his presidential campaign is over (hasn’t happened yet as I type this).
