So I read this morning that Newt’s staff are desperately trying to spin his campaign’s failure to file enough signature to even get the salamander on the ballot in Virgins for Super Tuesday primary date.
“Newt and I agreed that the analogy is December 1941,” campaign director Michael Krull said in a message posted to Facebook. “We have experienced an unexpected set-back, but we will re-group and re-focus with increased determination, commitment and positive action. Throughout the next months there will be ups and downs; there will be successes and failures; there will be easy victories and difficult days – but in the end we will stand victorious.”
Wow. This is fascinating news to me. Who knew that at Pearl Harbor we bombed ourselves, like Newt and his crew in the GOP Clown Car Parade did in Virginia?
My sense of history has been enlarged by the teacher. Thanks, Newt, you master historian, you!
