If it wasn't obvious before Rick Santorum dropped out today, then it should be painfully clear now that Mitt Romney is the official GOP nominee. Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich still has a problem processing "reality" and plans to stay in the race until the bitter end.
He's even willing to get that message tattooed on his forehead…
Newt Gingrich pushed back against the idea he was, effectively, conceding the race to Mitt Romney in an interview with Fox News on Monday night.
"I am in here — I'm thinking of getting it tattooed up here [points to forehead] 'all the way to Tampa,'" he said. Tampa is where the GOP convention will take place in August.
That's actually a good strategy. With a face tattoo, Newt should fit right in with the people of Tampa.
Now that Rick Santorum's out of the race, Newt will only feel more emboldened. Especially since he'll absorb some of Santorum's leftover conservative votes. And you know how much Newt likes absorbing leftovers.
