    bloviating: Newt has an absolute grasp of the superficial but not much more.

    Question is why do the TPers, so ardently anti intellectual, love Newt with his uber superior airs and grumpy professor lecturing of everyone else as if they are a cretin?

    •  They don't like him. Not at all. (1+ / 0-)

      But they dislike him less than they dislike Romney, and figure (in that 1+1=3 sort of figuring) that he has a better chance against Obama than the other whackadoodles in the race.

        for being a Mormon, why not hate Newt for his religion?

        •  The political alliance between (0+ / 0-)

          evangelicals and rightwing Catholics has been growing for decades.  Roe v. Wade is what brought them closer and continues to hold them together.  Seen a fundie lately that complains about the SCOTUS Catholic mafia (Roberts-Scalia-Thomas-Alito-Kennedy)?

          •  they still complain about JFK and the Pope (0+ / 0-)

            but one of the most bewildering defenses of Paterno and the university was "Chappaquiddick".  Evidently Chappaquiddick remains the winger's excuse for anything they care to try to defend
