• Newt Gingrich's Fifteen Minutes Start Now

    After both Rick Perry and Herman Cain took their turns ascending to the top seat in the Republican effort to not nominate Mitt Romney, humorists thought to themselves: Can it possibly get any better than this?

    Well, as it turns out, it actually can

    Newt Gingrich has taken the lead in PPP's national polling.  He's at 28% to 25% for Herman Cain and 18% for Mitt Romney.  The rest of the Republican field is increasingly looking like a bunch of also rans: Rick Perry is at 6%, Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul at 5%, Jon Huntsman at 3%, and Gary Johnson and Rick Santorum each at 1%.

    Compared to a month ago Gingrich is up 13 points, while Cain has dropped by 5 points and Romney has gone down by 4.

    Does anybody know who the god of political comedy is? Because I think I'm going to have to start tithing to him.
