Gingrich in Bloom
How can it be that Newt Gingrich is the front runner in Iowa? How did this happen? How did we get here?
I wish Gingrich were our Churchill, back from the wilderness years, ready to take command at his country's moment of peril. But I'm not sure. I can't help thinking that, whatever his merits, he is so loathed by the left-wing elites in the media that any demogoguery against him will be aired and given credibility by a media eager to destroy him. And so, while Obama must be thrown out of office, lest the country be lost, my fear is that the Republicans will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
