The Knave vs. the Knut
If these latest charges against Newt Gingrich are true, the amount of the national debt will be affected by not one penny. No jobs will be created or “saved.” The issue is Barack Obama, not Gingrich.
If the adulterous Gingrich somehow wins the nomination, then voters will still have a choice–between someone who was a knave, and someone who is either a dunce or who puts the interests of his insane base above the interests of the American people. We are in a financial crisis, and I know which one I would choose.
Personally, though, I find Rick Santorum to be far preferable to Gingrich or Rick Perry (for lots of reasons). I find the timing of Perry’s endorsement of Gingrich to be poor, to say the least. I hope Perry’s supporters–both of them–will decide to go over to Santorum, because Gingrich is probably finished–as he should be.
