Gingrich’s Legacy, Such As It Is, At Stake

Rick Santorum 2012 Campaign Missteps Mirror 2006 Loss


The one thing that I took away from this week’s Supreme Court arguments on the ACA is the Republican Party’s clearly stated intent to deny affordable and accessible medical treatment to as many Americans as possible.

Apparently, Rick Santorum has hit upon what he believes is a winning strategy: trash the memory and legacy of the country’s first Catholic president on a consistent basis. Santorum, who faced blowback earlier this month for criticizing former president John F. Kennedy, defended his position in a 2,600 word essay on the website Friday. He compared Kennedy to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the first president of Turkey and founder of the secular Turkish state.

A Mitt Romney/Marco Rubio ticket makes perfect sense for a candidate who conservatives simply don’t like or trust and a party that desperately needs to shake the sense that it’s just for and about white people. However, the question remains if such a ticket, with almost no foreign policy experience whatsoever at a time when geopolitics are increasingly important, is viable against an incumbent president who among other accomplishments, took out Osama bin Laden and ended U.S. combat operations in Iraq.

Out of money and ideas and quite possibly his mind, a desperate and on the ropes Newt “The Toad” Gingrich conjures up his “It’s 2 a.m. in the Club and You Gotta Go Home with Somebody, So It Might As Well Be Me” strategy. In this case, 2 a.m. being a deadlocked National Republican Convention that Newt plans on seducing like it’s a potential wife #4. I hope the Tampa Tiffany store is well-stocked.

Shouldn’t one look a bit more disheveled after fighting for one’s life than George Zimmerman does in the Sanford, Florida police video?

The mortician who prepared Trayvon’s body said his knuckles were in “pristine” condition and that he saw no indication that he’d been in any type of scuffle or fight. He also mentioned a GSW to Trayvon’s chest.

George Zimmerman’s attorney says that his client’s life has been “permanently changed.” Really? More than Trayvon Martin’s?

I think it’s safe to say that no other athlete has had the lasting impact on a city like the one Earvin “Magic” Johnson has had on Los Angeles since the day he first arrived back in 1979 and no one ever will. He is everything off-the-court that Kobe Bryant, sadly, will never be.
