Newt knows exactly what he’s doing. Remember, Sarah Palin will have a speaking role due to her prominence in the party, and she is a Newt supporter. She’ll probably have the most watched speech at the convention. If she and Newt do what they are bound to do, lock the exits and keep Romney occupied with shiny objects.
If this becomes a brokered convention, every speech will become an opportunity for the speaker to stampede the convention.
BlueStateBlues, when I read the “keep Romney busy with shiny objects”, I actually spit my ice tea I laughed so hard.
