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.
