Newt's going to self destruct horribly any time now… Everybody knows this

It's in his nature… Even a blind man can read the writing on the wall.

So please, pray tell, why is the MSM keeping up with this charade that he's a genuine viable future nominee?

Tell me why, people? C'mon and spit it out...

I'll give you my idea first; because the silly fuckers are DRAMA QUEEN Ghost Writers instead of legitimate journalists! They're tabloid whores dressed up in fancy suits with slick graphics bouncing about their carefully coiffed heads.

And they are completely afraid of honest debate and analysis (The cowards)… That stuff doesn't pay the bills. Bombastic-ability does.

They're making this shit up as they go along, because the truth is just too inconvenient. Gotta keep the circus a movin'.

When Newt falls flat on his puffy face, I'll bet you dollars to the Krispy Kremes that he's been stuffing into his gaping maw they'll act all "surprised" and "shocked" that his own self-destructive behavior "killed" his campaign.

Not only are they unwilling to admit that Fat Boy is completely UNELECTABLE, they're not even close to admitting that he's completely UNFIT to SERVE IN PUBLIC OFFICE!

It's INSANE!

If they can't call ANY ridiculous GOP Klown Kar Kandidate as utterly silly as they actually are, and remember these fools are running for the most powerful job on the planet, we should NEVER trust the media on ANYTHING. I don't.

They have absolutely no credibility on this affair… Or on just about anything else at all.

The sad part is that we desperately need a functioning Fourth Estate in order for this country to function as a democratic republic.

Instead, we have people in American newsrooms with their heads firmly ensconced between the canyons of their own glutei maximi!

So, witness the saga of bullshit that is the media meme about Newt Gingrich… It's an affair to remember.

Bush was a great President and was deserving of a second term. If they want Gingrich, it will be Gingrich. The more UNFIT to SERVE IN PUBLIC OFFICE the more the media loves them and props them up.

5. It was their price of admission to White House access...

Any depiction of reality and the Bushies would have cut them off at the knees.

6. And I expect the media to prop up Newt Gingrich the same way

If he does self destruct they will take care of it and make sure it's a non story.

10. Newt's on his own right now, without the ability to restrict access

Plus we're talking about a difference between apples and potatoes here.

Newt HAS History and a severe penchant to evoke visceral reactions due to his harsh personality.

The media is giving him a reach around because their too lame to function independently. Plus, at some level, it's a pathetic way to hedge their bets on all the Klowns. Newtons is no different that any of them.

Bush literally had now history before he stole the White House the first time. Once he got in there, his incumbency had him burrowed in like a tick.

Once he eviscerated some legitimate journalists for actually telling the truth, the rest of them fell right in line.

Newt is is own worst enemy… I doubt that even they can save him from his damn self.

13. The problem is

republicans and THEIR history do not matter.

Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Joe dead intern Scarborough, Bill falaffall O'Reilly, David Vitter. I could go on, but it seems all those people self destructed at one time or another.

4. Many Republicans are having fits about Newt. Surprised the MSM is not doing the same.

Or maybe a huge build up is the best way to help Newt self-destruct.

7. I hope you're right. You probably are. But on the other hand,

who would have thought that a mediocre, has been, B movie actor or a drunken frat boy failure would be electable?

8. The MSM is little more than a propaganda outlet

I believe what they come up with only when I research it myself via many different sources, and sadly, foreign news outlets are more forthcoming than our own media.

9. I don't know for sure...

The media wants him. In addition, Newt has been around for A LONG time. He is a walking, talking and breathing example of old-school (20 years or so) Republican politics. The public is used to him being a douchebag and consistently putting his foot in his mouth. If he gets the nomination, he WILL have to moderate his rhetoric or he doesn't stand a chance.

I can't wait. If Newt does get the Republican nod, it will be proof that the t-party is over. Like I said, Newt is old-school Republican politics. No matter how he spins it, he was a corrupt politician when he was Speaker, he was then a lobbyist and is now a morally bankrupt individual who wraps himself in a thin veil of religious decency.

Can't wait for the crash and burn.

12. What outrageous things could he say that he hasn't already said?

If something can derail his campaign, it's saying something less than ultra conservative such as use of the taboo Republican word "humane". But this year, Republican candidates can't talk enough about snuffing people out and the more Gingrich dehumanizes "invented people", talks about making poor children do demeaning work, or about giving marijuana sellers the death penalty the more he gets applauded by the base. This year, I think the Republican party is going out of its way to nominate the unelectable. I think the more he media refers to the collection of clowns Republicans are running, he more the base digs in their heels and loves them. The only way Gingrich could self-destruct with this year's Republican party is by appearing to be sane, which ain't gonna happen.

15. This begs the question: Who's next?

If Ron Paul or MIchelle Bachmann win the Iowas 'caucasians' where will the media go after the Newtcircus? It'll be worse than Fox N Friends.
