Exit Newt

Newt Gingrich, the moon colonizing, idea shotgunning, no-TelePrompTer-needing, three-wife having one man filibuster machine and the most qualified human to ever run for President, is totally not quitting the GOP primary, at all, in any way. Having clearly and decisively won third place, he will continue to campaign as a “citizen.” Also, a source close to the Gingrich operation says he will be suspending his campaign this week. But he’s NOT QUITTING…Read More

5 Things To Watch For In Tonight’s Primaries

 

Primaries! Stay excited people, there’s still plenty of politics to obsess over, as New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware and Connecticut vote tonight in the GOP presidential primary for a total of 231 delegates.

Mitt Romney is the presumptive nominee, but he hasn’t won over his party yet, Gingrich still might pull off an upset, Ron Paul is gearing up the protest vote, and a showdown between a Blue Dog and a labor-backed challenger in PA might decide the Democrats’ election year narrative.

Here’s a rundown of what to watch for…Read More

Ron Paul’s Not Quitting Cuz Screw You

 

This clip features the two common arguments circulating round ye olde Reddit.com/r/ronpaul: that the libertarianish candidate’s big crowds are indicative of a groundswell—Paul has been attracting thousands at isolated events (though nowhere near the numbers Obama regularly drew in 2008)—and that he has more delegates than anybody realizes, as his supporters are trying to snatch up delegate positions to potentially wrest a few states at the GOP convention…Read More

Four Ways Mitt Romney Will Have to Change What He Believes for the General Election

 

With the election all but sealed after three wins on Tuesday and multiple endorsements from a variety of establishment and tea party figures, Mitt Romney no longer has to woo the hardcore portions of the GOP base: the evangelicals, the hardcore libertarians, the tea partiers, the blue collar workers, etc. In fact, an opposite relationship will likely emerge in the next few months, in which those interests, wanting to matter to a Romney White House, will be trying to appeal to him…Read More
