According to pundits, perennial loser Newt Gingrich is slated to win only one state on Super Tuesday: Georgia, his home state. That's the presidential equivalent of getting a trophy just for participation.
So, will he finally take the hint that America wants a divorce from Newt Gingrich? Nope…
Despite acknowledging that only winning Georgia would put him in a "more difficult position" going forward, Newt Gingrich's campaign says he's plowing ahead, including with an appearance in Texas on Saturday.
"I think it puts me in a more difficult position. But on the other hand, next week we have Mississippi and Alabama and Kansas, and I think I'll win at least two out of three," Gingrich said on CNN this morning…
Gingrich began talking about Texas as a make-or-break point after the Nevada caucuses…Gingrich is hopeful that with the backing of Gov. Rick Perry, who endorsed him when he dropped out, he could be successful in the state with a large delegate prize to capture.
After losing the GOP nomination, Newt will probably just plow ahead with his plan to run for president. Sure, not being on the ballot will put him in a "more dificult position," but he'll manage. There's always a write-in campaign. Maybe he can follow in the footsteps of his debate BFF Herman Cain and start releasing surreal student films about dead goldfish.
I'm starting to suspect that Newt Gingrich is secretly a blogger here at Indecision. At this point, comedy writers are the only people who still want him in the race.
