Some of you may wonder why I still think that Gingrich will crater before the last day of Kwanzaa. Paul Gottfried suggests that maybe Republicans will remember that (just like Goldwater!) Newt proposes to solve every problem in existence by throwing the federal government at it. Gottfried left out the great moment when Newt proposed that we federalize lower Manhattan to stop a community group from building a mosque (the velvet painting of Reagan in Peggy Noonan’s basement shrine cried real tears over that one). As with all things Newt there is never enough space.
If you look at the RCP poll-a-rama here, Gingrich has just about hit that peak when the GOP base starts to feel a little queasy about their latest hero, and historically Newt tends to flame out as fiercely as he flames in. Unless I’m crazy Callista will get her man back just in time for some last-minute holiday deals at Tiffany’s.
