Bouncing around

19 Jan

Earlier this week, Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, conducted an interview with ABC News.

She spoke to investigative reporter Brian Ross for two hours and “her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.”
The AP reports the interview is likely to air on Nightline tonight.
Of course we’ll all watch.

The first common sense we’ve seen out of the GOP presidential field:
Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign “says it has not yet accepted invitations to participate in two high-profile debates leading up to the January 31 Florida primary”.
A key Romney adviser is expressing fatigue and frustration over what he sees as a never-ending series of GOP debates.
Stuart Stevens: “There are too many of these. We have to bring some order to it. We haven’t accepted Florida…It’s kind of like a cruise that’s gone on too long.”
And ended up on the rocks.

Erick Erickson, the man who helped usher in the Rick Perry presidential candidacy at a convention the website put together in August, is now calling on the Texas governor to bow out ahead of the South Carolina vote for the sake of conservative unity:
“If Rick Perry stays in the race, conservatives opposed to Mitt Romney will be legitimately able to blame Rick Perry for dragging down either Newt or Santorum. If the person he endorses doesn’t win the nomination, it still doesn’t hurt him as much as staying in to take a few deciding votes.
Rick Perry’s campaign has come to an end. But he could leave on an unexpected high note — helping conservatives unite around one not-Romney in a way no one else has been able to. Rick Perry could be the catalyst and kingmaker so many have been looking for, even as other conservatives have stood by, unwilling to endorse in the face of long odds.”

Great parody.
The Washington Post has called Newt Gingrich an “ideas factory.”
This account links with Newt’s brain, so those ideas can be shared with the public.

A Super PAC backing Newt Gingrich has a new TV ad.
It imagines a general election debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama.
Kinda dumb.
