Do I Honestly Have to Start Taking Newt Gingrich Seriously as a Candidate for President? Really?

Because man, that sucks if I do. But he just might be the last Not Romney standing when the votes start getting cast.

I’m still holding out hope for a Jon Huntsman surge (who, btw, I think I will likely vote for at this point).

Anyway, can somebody closely monitor this whole Newt situation and alert me when it becomes irrefutable that I ought to be paying attention to Newt Fing Gingrich and the possible political implications of his candidacy? Because I really don’t want to waste the brain space until I absolutely have to.

  1. I guess one can see it, in a certain fashion, as the adoption of Paulite principles by the Republican party as a whole. Not his POLITICAL principles, mind, but rather, the core libertarian belief that it is more important to be ideologically pure than to have any chance of winning an election.

    To see a major party adopt that principle, and throw away a winnable Presidential election in the process, would be truly fascinating. How long, one wonders, could such sentiment last? Could the existence of the greivance media, with its clear preference for sniping from the outside of the power structure over actually occupying it, make such a model sustainable?
