Gingrich, Re-Agonized

Yesterday at CFIF I did a blog post called “Newt Agonistes.” Well, the hits just keep on coming. Jennifer Rubin insists that we have the right to know more about what Gingrich did for Fannie Mae. She’s right. And Gene Healy argues that Gingrich is “no conservative.” He’s right, too. But it’s a sign of just how desperate Republican voters, including conservative voters, are, that they would consider giving the nomination to somebody who has so often canoodled with our adversaries (Kerry, Pelois, Sharpton, Scozzafava, Fannie Mae), blasted us in public (the Ryan plan, the Hoffman campaign against Scozzafava, “you conservatives” in the House when he was Speaker), and let his ego be not only his undoing but the undoing of the whole right-leaning team (back of Air Force One, anybody?). And, not to mention, give the nomination to somebody who spectacularly flamed out the last time he had power.

Desperation isn’t a pretty thing to watch. But it, and Gingrich, might yet win the day.
