Keith Olbermann has done it again, this time lambasting Newt Gingrich for trashing the first amendment in a bid to become the Republican's next presidential nominee.
I hate to break it to this aptly named lizard of a man, but he's wasting his time. In more ways than one.
He's wasting his time because the average American, who acts like a bull in the china shop when it comes to demanding government programs, which trash the Constitution, on the one hand; will overwhelmingly reject any proposal that appears to limit their ability to obtain instant gratification, especially one that trashes the parts of the Constitution they want to keep. He might as well have cut his own throat, literally.
Talk about cluelessness when it comes to reading what's in the wind.
He's also wasting his time is because the most likely Republican Presidential nominee is someone from the President's administration. Newt is so far out of favor with the President that I can't even begin to imagine what sequence of events might end in his being nominated by his party; let alone elected to the presidency.
No, the most likely Republican nominee is still the youngest, highest ranking member of W's cabinet. And that person is still Condoleeza Rice. Which makes it Rice Vs. Clinton in '08.
You heard it here first.
