I am going to do the official Happy Dance if Newt indeed maintains a double digit margin, just because Bill O’Reilly laughed out loud at the mere suggestion.

He can be the Pinhead in his next program.

I could live with Gingrich/Santorum just fine. A former Senator would be OK in the VP slot and their messages are very similar. I like the balance of blue-collar vs intellectual, and South vs northern swing state.

Palin up!
Says we need this to continue, need more vetting, more about job creation.
Still not endorsing, but Todd did — mentions experience, waged war on Hillarycare, has overcome struggles, Todd’s endorsement was reflective of that.
What do you say to FL, Bret asks.
Says Gingrich is front runner and Perry was a good team member, took one for the team; Santorum just gave a great speech. Listen closely to what the candidate is actually saying...(Platitudes here, she doesn’t want to say anything specific as to a candidate in FL.)
Sounds overall like Palin does not want to make headlines tonight; but she looks pleased.

And congrats to you and Mrs. Scoutmaster for the decades of wedded bliss.

Thanks. I married up. I wake up each morning and think "Lord, I've been blessed."

She wakes up each morning and thinks "Lord, give me the strength to endure whatever hare-brained thing he plans to try today."

What do you think of a GIngrich/Santorum ticket? Represents the South and the North, the intellectual and the working man.

Maybe. I don't see Santorum adding much value in the North - if the GOP is in a position to take PA, they've already won.

Personally, I'd like to see Gingrich/West. West is a solid conservative and a veteran, he would defang the DNC's "raaaacist" theme, and he'd be perfect in the traditional attack dog role of the VP candidate.

Beats me. I haven’t listened to Weiner Nation since he offered Newt $1 million to drop out and left a love letter for Willard Romney the open socialist on his web site.

Since Newt hasn’t offered to appear on his show, that I’m aware of, I can only conclude that Savage still has a man-crush on Romney for having dinner with him.

Sarah talking pretty strong about Newt right now

She is telegraphing to all of us who she supports and WHY...I believe as long as she's under contract, she's not allowed to endorse - but she sure know how to get the message out to us anyway - THAT was quite a detailed praise of Newt and she KNOWS he'll use that clip - hahaha - they may stop her from a formal endorsement - but she outsmarts 'em all. aahahahaha

Gingrich/Martinez

You aren't listening:

“As the governor has repeatedly said, she is committed to focusing on turning New Mexico’s economy around and providing for a better education for our kids,” said governor’s spokesman Scott Darnell.

“She has no interest in serving as vice president and will not be a candidate for the position,” Darnell said.

Martinez will likely get Panin’d, badly.

And Newt is going to need to bring the Repub Establishment in to the fold, at some point.

Even Romney isn’t beyond impossible as a Newt VP. Remember, Reagan had Bush as VP.

“Close Jeb Bush ally tells me that no Romney endorsement is in the works.” TheFix Tweet

That's the problem with having no principles, and therefore drawing your support from those with no principles.

It's all expediency: and when you're no longer hot, you get dropped like a used condom.

Cheers!

Newt Gingrich opened up a strong salvo on President Obama. Gingrich dubbed the president a “Saul Alinsky radical” and called him “the most radical president in American history.”
