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.
