EXCERPT

“I don’t know if you have ever told Longfellow’s nursery rhyme to your 4-year-old daughter, Alice,” Will said to Tapper, reciting:

There is a little girl Who had a little curl Right in the middle of her forehead, When she was good, She was very good indeed, When she was bad, She was horrid.

“We’re at the horrid stage with Newt Gingrich,” Will concluded.

"There once was a man named George Will ..."

Who tryed to climb the hill.
Newt gave him a frown
and Will went tumbling down
and now he has a broken crown.

I disagree with that completely. Newt has his warts, not doubt. Sitting on the couch with Pelosi, for example.

But what Newt is not is a parser who sits and gives canned answers, and then when he wins goes on to capitulate to the Dems at every turn.

THAT is what you get with Romney. It doesn’t matter what he says, in the end you get what get with people like Boner and McConnell and McCain. So desperate to make a deal and compromise and sound civil and look bipartisan that you sell everything down the river while the Dems lick their chops for more.

The sun kisses the morning sky,
The flower kisses the butterfly,
The dew kisses the morning grass,
And YOU George Will can kiss my ASS!!!

Newt has many very positive qualities, and that speech is a good example. But he is also unpredictable and undisciplined. The question is whether a man with both his positive and negative attributes can win the election.

“Oh for goodness sake! Newt's the biggest gravy slurper there is! Santorum is the only hope for a conservative victory in November.”

Santorum has about as much chance as nutball Paul, zero to none.

The problem with dreams is that you have to wake up at some point. Time for you to wake up to reality.

Bulls-eye. If Newt changes his mind or does what you don't like, you won't be in the dark about it. He'll let you know. Will prefers closeted power that comes across as nice. Basically that's what you get with Obama.

Whoever is nominated, we have to use them to defeat Hussein. I’ll take a Republican House, Senate, and White House over this executive order communist any day.

No, at best Will is an establishment conservative, much the same as David Brooks. Gingrich may not be the best candidate (of course being out spent by a 5:1 margin could have something to do with him falling in the polls—especially when the ads they are buying are filled with lies and distortions), but he is the best man for the job by far.

It’s not up to him. The people can propel anyone, disciplined or undisciplined.

In that sense Boehner was right last year—it’s up to you.

The country clubbers are the viiiictims of raaaaaacist Tea Party supporters and Newt. I think this is a form of that mentality.

It’s horrid for Americans to storm the Rino’s pup tent! That aggression proves they hate minorities.

There once was a man named George Will
Who turned out to be a big shill
For the GOP hacks
So he covers their tracks-
“Just swallow the Establishment pill...”

Mr.Will, once considered an excellent conservative columnist,unfortunately has consumed the Kool-
aid, and has become a shill and a whore for ABC.

Conspiratorial, but oh well. Romney is on their side. McCain was also. Read yesterday all the communist points from the sixties and it finally made sense. Take over 1 or BOTH parties. Sorry, but we are at the very brink of takeover of the second party.
