  •  Why? (0+ / 0-)

    Gingrich is dangerous because he doesn't sound bat-shit crazy to the muddled middle. He can win over independents with a facade of intelligence. He is a lying, puke-soaked bag of pus but he sounds like he knows what he is talking about; that is why he could give Obama a serious run for the election.

    All the baggage that we take such glee in exposing will not have much of an effect; the media are already trying to clean up his history to make it more palatable.

    You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia".

      Dubya won because he was a folksy unknown who claimed to be in the middle.  Gingrich is a vicious partisan, an asshole, and a generally detested Fox News bobblehead.  I can't see him winning in any scenario.  Romney is their only chance.
