Moon Over Miami

January 31, 2012

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.

Countdown to Florida

Countdown to Florida

We are now on the final 48-hour countdown to Blast-Off in the Florida Republican Primary. Space Commander Newton Leroy Gingrich hopes to go where no man has gone before, from congressional disgrace to the White House. Mitt Romney hopes this will be Newt’s Final Frontier.

We hope to hear from Mission Control after the Florida polls close Tuesday at 7:00 PM.

South Carolina GOP: Adulterer 1, Mormon 0

South Carolina GOP: Adulterer 1, Mormon 0

In today’s South Carolina Republican primary, the state’s pious values voters have spoken. Better a disgraced career politician and thrice-married admitted adulterer than a member of the Latter Day Saints. GOP voters understand adultery just fine, but not Mormon theology (who does?).

Attacking the media helped, too.

Q: “Will Angry White Man Performance Win Gingrich GOP Nomination?”

A: Yup.

Early Warning System

May 15, 2011

Early Warning System

The editors of Politico have done a great public service by publishing a 2012 Presidential Election Calendar.

This will allow normal people to avoid GOP presidential contenders as they tub-thump and fulminate across the country. Regular human beings can now adjust their routes and schedules accordingly and minimize disruption of their daily lives. Caution: forecasters predict heaviest activity in Iowa and New Hampshire.
