Mini-Rumination: Not Enough “Aye” for Newt

It’s all over now but the shouting for Newt Gingrich.  The only thing keeping him in the race for the Republican presidential nomination is his love of the sound of his own voice.

But all’s not lost for Newt.  After winning the South Carolina and Georgia primaries and strong showings yesterday in Alabama and Mississippi, it seems clear that should the South ever rise again and seek to leave the federal union, Gingrich would be a strong candidate for president of the revived confederacy.

Watch out, Jefferson Davis!

    The only problem with saying “goodbye to Newt” would be that it would make it even more mathematically possible for Mr. Santorum to weasel his way into position as the Republican nominee. Is America really ready for that? Maybe the Obama camp is…but I’d like to at least preserve a choice for my November ballot, and if Rick Santorum’s name is on that ballot, I will not have a choice.

    Good rumination on teachers, by the way. I think the teacher that most influenced me was a science teacher in middle school who pulled a TV into the classroom so we could watch part of a 1969 World Series Game (remember midweek day games in the World Series?) I can’t remember atomic weights or phylums or chemistry or anyting else we might have touched on in that class…but I still love baseball!

    Agreed about Gingrich and Santorum. The whole Santorum thing is kind of mind-boggling. A few years from now, you know people will be looking back on it and asking themselves, “What WERE we thinking?”

    And yes, The Curmudgeon remembers weekday afternoon World Series games and teachers who found a tv so a class could watch. 1969 science teacher, eh? That would be…Mr. Levy?

      That would be one Mo (Mo?) Levy. Great memory!
