It's grey outside in my basement office. There's a pile of damp and rapidly molding ski pants dumped on the laundry floor. I have a bag of gym clothes waiting with good intentions by the front door. I have a blue sticky note of errands that need to happen this morning. Well, let's ignore those pressing matters for a moment and talk about Newt.
Why did Newt destroy Mitt in South Carolina? Is it because he killed in the debates last week, and people want a candidate that they think can out debate Obama? Is there really a backlash against party elite? Is Mitt in trouble, because of a populist backlash against anyone who has reeks of Wall Street? Is because Mitt has not convinced social conservatives that he's a real conservative?
UPDATE: And in response to popular demand….
The thought of an open marriage with this newt doesn't make us vomit a little in our mouths.
