I Got Your Panic, Right Here

If you are looking for open signs of panic among the Republican Establishment, look no further than Jennifer Rubin, who last night penned an open letter to many of the foremost elected officials in the party begging them to intervene to stop Gingrich. Here's a sample of her plea:

...The voters in their infinite wisdom have just given a huge boost to perhaps the only GOP candidate who could shift the spotlight from President Obama to himself, alienate virtually all independent voters, lose more than 40 states and put the House majority in jeopardy.

We’d be looking at four more years of Obama’s economic policies, four more years of strained relations with allies, several new Supreme Court justices and an unprecedented power shift to the executive branch.

It seems, gentlemen, it’s time to get off your . . . er . . . time to get off the bench and into the game.


What's interesting is that Ms. Rubin and Newt's biggest benefactor, Sheldon Adelson, are two of the staunchest advocates for Israel imaginable, and, yet, they totally disagree about the merits of Gingrich as a candidate.

I guess it's obvious that Ms. Rubin does not fear how a President Gingrich would treat Israel. Her concern is that Gingrich will get slaughtered in the general election because he's "an egomaniac whose personal advancement takes precedence over any principle." She says he will burn the party to the ground.

Is she a more savvy political observer than Mr. Adelson?
