Why is the Left so afraid?
Many of us are ready ro review the horror story that is Newt Gingrich’s private life. In fact I bought popcorn for this evenings bitter ex-wife expose. This is going to be fun! So why you might ask am I going to vote for Newt if he is the nominee? Easy… I’m voting for the least Socialist Candidate of the two parties.
This is why the left is terrified of him. Gingrich has not run as a social conservative which takes an old stand-by out of the leftist political playbook. The hypocrisy accusation. They have long enjoyed the ability to wag the finger of hypocrisy at the conservative while making sure their candidate stands for nothing thus getting a pass. Without this sure-fire distraction they might have to talk about economics… uh-oh. This is a last-ditch attempt to knock out the guy that is most difficult to demagogue.
It is exactly this that led ABC to conduct this interview in the first place. All of this wringing of hands over when to air it is window dressing compared to the decision to do it in the first place. I have to say though, I’m glad they did it. It’s good to remind us of the fact that our position on social issues is not what is bankrupting this country. I do not believe that this interview is going to create a mass defection from Newt as too many of us have or know that older, bitter, angry and slightly less good-looking ex-spouse who is hell-bent on making our lives miserable. If anything I think we will see a slight rally.
Hey you Bill Clinton supporters… I thought our private lives didn’t matter? I happen to agree.
Anyway, I have to put the beer in the fridge and find a popcorn bowl big enough so I don’t have to get up to fill it. Thank you ABC!
