While I don't follow the din of contemporary politics even a little bit...
I'm 1,000% sure that Newt Gingrich has negligible genuine support among Republicans.
But Big Media (Big Government'ss apparatchik) most certainly wants this loser on the ballot next fall - just as they salivated at facing that Moronic 'old coot' John McCain the last time around.
The only people I've ever even heard talk about Newt Gingrich....are the most devout illiberals within my social circles.
One could easily make the case that the special interest socialists actually would rather Mitt Romney get the nomination...and I won't argue against that hypothesis.
From that it follows that Big Media is just disposed toward building up upstarts for the purpose of weakening the alleged frontrunner/entire field.
Whoever won that debate if anyone actually watched, or cares,....whoever is the frontrunner remains immaterial.
My point is that the news from the big pipe is nothing short of pure propaganda. It's designed to DEFORM rather than inform minds.
