GINGRICH: Pull the plug on moribund campaign

If Newt Gingrich’s staff and fund-raisers don’t have any confidence in his ability to run the country, then why on earth should the voters? It seems that his campaign has gone nuclear, like the reactor meltdown in Japan and the fallout continues unabated.

Newt’s presidential plans disintegrated faster than the half-life of Iodine-131 (40 days), where it decays and transmutes into the noble gas Xenon. Gingrich, in spite of the obvious, refuses to throw in the towel and still boasts about seeking the GOP nomination for president.

Tell the emperor he has no clothes and the last person in his campaign office please turn out the lights because this party is just about over.

  1. Newt isn’t running for president.

    He’s running for contributions.

  2. Roncella says:

    Newts smarter than most who are running for President including President Obama who does not know how many states make up the United States.

    If I were an extreme liberal/progressive I’d be more concerned with Romney, Huntsmen, Palin, Pawlenty, so many others.

    Newts will keep the debates interesting and informative, some of the libs and progressive and dems could actually learn something by just listening to him speak.

  3. BlaineCGarver says:

    The campaign already has one Vegtable, OhBummer, so Newt realizes that the Conservatives have to participate in order to have some red meat. The ‘Crats sure seem to like their veggies.

  4. Newt’s brilliant.

    Two ex-wives, an affair with his aide, a million dollar credit line with a jewelery store.

    Yep…just the guy for the job.

  5. Grassisgreener says:

    I think Newt is actually pretty smart overall… but he couldn’t stop shooting himself in the foot in the first week of his campaign.
