In a long post at Delaware Liberal, Delaware Dem sums up the appeal of Newt the Gingrinch:
I suspect the radicals on the right know, if they are honest, that pigs will fly before this nation elects Newt Gingrich. But they want someone to denigrate Obama, to call him the Food Stamp President, to insult him.
Racism has been part of the underlying appeal of the Republican Party since Nixon’s odious Southern Strategy.
It is now becoming the overlying appeal, as the Republican Party continues to react to the election of a black President by morphing into the Dixiecrat Party.
It will be interesting to see whether Mitt the Flip and the Republican Party’s erstwhile corporate masters can flip the overlying back to the underlying, where they prefer it lie. Dick Polman thinks that Mitt the Flip has a chance to flip Florida.
