Slapping the Newt

I should say that Republicans need to do a lot more of this to their self-appointed RINO leaders:

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Speaker Gingrich, what you just did to Paul Ryan is unforgivable.

NEWT GINGRICH: I didn’t do anything to Paul Ryan.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, you did. You undercut him and his allies in the House. You’re an embarrassment to our party.

GINGRICH: I’m sorry you feel that way.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Why don’t you get out before you make a bigger fool of yourself?

Romney and Daniels, at the very least, merit similar treatment. Probably Pawlenty too, although because I am so very heavily biased against him on a personal level, my judgment is not sufficiently impartial to be reliable. But Gingrich has always been a joke as a presidential candidate; I find it difficult to imagine he genuinely believes anyone outside of the National Review offices truly wants to vote for him.
