Newt Dumbfounded

Newt Gingrich: ‘Dumfounded’ by election
By: Kevin Robillard
November 12, 2012 08:27 AM EST

Newt Gingrich on Monday pronounced himself “dumbfounded” that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney earned fewer votes than the party’s 2008 standard-bearer, Ariz. Sen. John McCain.

“The president won an extraordinary victory, and the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to understand what they did and how they did it,” Gingrich said on NBC’s “Today.” “But if you had said to me three weeks ago that Mitt Romney would get fewer votes than John McCain — and it looks like he’ll be 2 million fewer — I would have been dumbfounded.”

Gingrich unsuccessfully challenged Romney for the GOP nomination. In the latest count from The Associated Press, Romney has 58.8 million votes. McCain received 59.9 million votes in 2008.

2. According to Nate Silver, there are ~3 million ballots left to be counted in California

So Romney will almost certainly pass McCain, albeit not by much. Ultimately, most of the voters who stayed home were probably more on our side.

5. Why this idiot who was run out of congress is still relevant is a puzzle.

The media keeps poking this scorpion with a stick expecting at any moment something surprising will happen. Newt no longer has a stinger.

10. Not just the election

 

Newt The Toad isn't just dumbfounded by election 2012, he's dumbfounded by reality in general.

repigs live in a bubble world filled with lies, crime, evil, thoughts of war, and lust for death. Reality cannot penetrate it.
