Moon Over Miami

Moon Over Miami

Tonight, somewhere in Florida, Newton Leroy Gingrich is mooning over his GOP primary loss to Mitt Romney. An attempt to attract voters from the state’s aerospace industry by proposing a lunar colony ended in a sudden loss of gravitas. Pundit Charles Krauthammer calls that moon base speech Newt’s “Dukakis in the tank moment.”  [Youngsters: look here.]

The low Earth orbit of Space Cadet Gingrich wobbles toward Nevada’s Republican Caucus on Saturday. Meanwhile, tonight, the moon gleams above Biscayne Bay.
