Gingrich Rides the Horses of Animus And Vituperation to South Carolina Victory

Well, the good people of South Carolina have hung a flapping, hysterical albatross around the the Republican Party and the country at large, even if Newt Gingrich bombs with the rest of us.  His victory in the GOP primaries today, ensures that his brand of vituperative nastiness will be hoisted  like a shining trophy for the infatuated to find their own, screaming reflections in.

Charles Blow, who wrote before the shameful win, has much to say about the man

Republicans are willing to forgive his flaws and his past because he connects with a silent slice of their core convictions — their deep-seated, long-simmering issues with an “elite” media bias, minority “privilege” and Obama’s “otherness.”

He’s the street fighter with a history of poisonous politics who not only goes there but dwells there. He makes his nest among the thorns of open animus and coded language.

Gingrich went on to say, “I am tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans.” Points scored. The crowd ate it up.

As for the president, Gingrich this week at a campaign stop called the president’s decision to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline “stunningly stupid.” Even more points. The crowd jumped to its feet and pumped fists.

 

I’d say that the disgruntled whispers I hear among some folks that they won’t vote for Obama because they are soooo disapointed might try getting regruntled, less they leave us the rest of us facing the north end of this horse moving south….

    You’re not speaking to me per chance. Are you? I admit I’m having a difficult time erasing these words from the echo chambers of my brain:
    “Fool me once -shame on me. Fool me twice – you can’t get fooled again.”
    But I’ll work on it. I have a few months.
